Wanted to replace my much loved 2001 Yaris but in their wisdom Toyota have designed the new Yaris larger than I'm used to, and faster. Therefore I opted for a new Aygo and how I regret it. It's like driving a shopping trolley or a dinky toy. It's tinny and cheap. The interior is cramped with virtually no leg room at the back, and the glove compartment no bigger than an A4 envelope. As for the boot...well less said the better! Largely it's the performance that's the greatest problem. While it's just about passable in town, it's less than hopeless on A roads and motorways. Even hills leave us exasperated. The other frustration is a safety concern: terrible visibility. The mirror is low and takes up a lot of the top centre of the windscreen, while the back and rear passenger windows are so tiny it's hard to merge and reverse safely. Aygo doesn't come in two doors which apparently there's no call for albeit I'd have preferred because of better visibility. I realise I can't expect too much from a small car, but the very least is to assume it would cope on a motorway. All in all when we exchange the car, it won't be for a Toyota.
