The PSA group and Toyota have been in partnership to produce small cars for quite a while now. Thus, in 2005 the first generation of Aygo was released, accompanied by the Citroën C1 and the Peugeot 107.

In 2014, the three are renewed, Citroën offers the C1 II, Peugeot the 108, and Toyota its second generation of Aygo, which this time stands out more clearly from its sisters, with a younger, sharper look, less classic.
A large X in contrasting color bars the front face, the rear lights are vertical, the possibilities for customization are greater. And she is frankly not bad. On the other hand, inside, the three cars are strictly identical, except for the logo on the steering wheel. This interior is of much better quality than on the first generation. Indeed, even if all plastics are hard, they are well assembled, less fragile than on the old one. And the design is topical, for the time, with the possibility of choosing plastic inserts in the color of the body.
Unlike the previous Aygo, this second opus abandons the diesel engine as soon as it is released, pushed towards the exit by the antipollution standards. Under the bonnet, a single 3-cylinder 1.0 engine with 69 hp, then 72 hp from the 2018 restyling. This restyling eliminates the contrasting colored X on the bow: it becomes body color. The lights are redesigned, and a new light signature for the daytime running lights has appeared in the optics.
Moreover, the Aygo is fun to drive, sufficiently efficient in urban and peri-urban areas. It can even withstand a bit of long motorway journeys, since its quality of filtration and soundproofing has been improved. It is also very economical because it is frugal, and the icing on the cake, very reliable.

What is the used Toyota Aygo 2 worth?
Less sold in France than its cousins Citroën C1 and Peugeot 108, the TOyota Aygo is still very present on occasion on specialized sites. If we have not (yet) made a second-hand maxi-sheet, we made some for her cousins, and it turns out that, unsurprisingly, they are valid for the Japanese as well.

Caradisiac's reliability notice
The Toyota brand has a well-established reputation for reliability. It is not usurped, even if there may have been a few years of deadlock, especially with diesel engines, as with all manufacturers. Anyway, this Aygo 2 only carbides unleaded, and its reliability is exceptional. Problems are rare, non-recurring and often not serious (slowness of the multimedia system, noise from furniture). Good news for potential buyers.
