Toyota Aygo X Review 2023

The Toyota Aygo X is a stylish and compact crossover based on the original Toyota Aygo. Bigger and more practical than the original, the Aygo X is great for those who want a car that meets the demands of city driving and family life. 

Rivals to the Aygo X include the Suzuki Ignis, Kia Picanto, Fiat Panda, and Hyundai i10.

Our Toyota Aygo X review covers:

  • Lacks premium materials

Design, Practicality and Boot Space

The Aygo X is a bigger and bolder version of the normal Aygo. It has a more muscly-looking exterior featuring slick headlights, 18-inch wheels, and flashes of contrasting colours. It certainly stands out from the crowd. 

Up front, passengers have tonnes of space; there's plenty of leg and headroom, and you won't be rubbing shoulders thanks to a well-sized centre console. In the rear, space is a bit tighter, and two adults will struggle to get comfortable on a long journey.

The Aygo X has a boot space of 226 litres, which can be extended to 824 litres with the rear seats folded. Compared to its rivals, the Aygo X falls short of the Hyundai i10 and Kia Picanto, which both offer more than 250 litres.

Interior and Trims

Inside the cabin, the Aygo X has a well-designed interior. The dashboard feels solidly built, and although there are some cheaper materials, it will fit the bill for a young family. It does feature a few premium materials, such as a leather gear shift and steering wheel. 

You get a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system as standard that features Apple CarPlay/Android Auto. There's also a 4.2-inch colour digital instrument display behind the steering wheel. 

If you want more tech, the mid-range Edge trim upgrades the screen to eight inches, while the Exclusive trim has a nine-inch screen with a wireless mobile phone charger. 

The Aygo X has four trim levels: Pure, Edge, Exclusive, and Undercover. 

Pure kicks off the models with 17-inch alloy wheels, a three-spoke leather steering wheel, auto headlights, manual air conditioning, a reversing camera, pre-collision with cyclist detection, intelligent adaptive cruise control, emergency steering assist, and driver attention assist. 

Edge adds to this with 18-inch alloy wheels, an eight-inch infotainment system, privacy glass, a gloss black front grille, automatic air conditioning, and LED daytime running lights. 

Exclusive has a nine-inch infotainment system, a wireless mobile phone charger, front and rear parking sensors, synthetic leather seats, smart entry/push-button start, and light blue ambient lighting in the centre console. 

Undercover completes the models with 18-inch black alloy wheels with coral red inserts, exterior/interior accents in red, undercover Bordeaux partial leather seats, and heated front seats. 

Power and Performance

Just one engine is available in the Aygo X. It's a 1.0-litre petrol unit with 72hp that's available with either a five-speed manual transmission or an automatic. 

It has a top speed of 98mph, achieves 0-62mph in 14.9 seconds, and returns a fuel efficiency of an average of 55mpg. 

Toyota Aygo X interior

Around a city, the Aygo X is at its best; it accelerates well from stationary and comes with very good handling. On tighter roads and car parks, driving the Aygo X is a breeze, and thanks to the parking aids it has, parking is relatively stress-free. 

As you up the speed outside the city, you'll have to rev the engine quite hard to reach motorway speed. If you're planning a long motorway drive, try and do it without a full car, as this will massively limit your cruising speed. If you're looking for a more powerful car, go for the Hyundai i10.

Leasing vs Buying

Prices for the new Toyota Aygo X start from £15,164.00 OTR* or to lease from £184.02 per month.
