The Aygo X might share its platform with the Yaris, but sadly it hasn’t inherited the hybrid supermini’s frugal powertrain. Instead, the single engine option is the same compact 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol as the previous Aygo

When equipped with the standard five-speed manual, Toyota says the combo will return up to 58.9mpg and emits 109-110g/km of CO2. But if you go for the automatic transmission, fuel economy takes a slight dip to 56.5mpg on the WLTP combined cycle and emissions increase to 113-114g/km. When we tested the manual Aygo X against a similarly powerful Hyundai i10, it was pipped by the i10, averaging 51.9mpg to the Hyundai’s 53.1mpg.

Despite its status as Toyota’s entry-level model, the dinky Aygo X’s nearly £16,000 starting price is considerably higher than those of its chief rivals the Hyundai i10, Kia Picanto and Volkswagen up!, while top-spec models fall into the same price bracket as the Renault Clio and Vauxhall Corsa

Insurance groups

The Aygo X should be pretty cheap to insure, as the entry-level Pure trim model sits in group 5 (out of 50) and mid-range Edge cars fall into group 6. Premiums for the top-spec Undercover version with the optional automatic gearbox should also be relatively inexpensive as it’s only in group 6.

In comparison, the Hyundai i10 range starts from group 5 and tops out at group 10, while the Kia Picanto sits in groups 5 to 11.

Depreciation

According to our latest expert data, the Aygo X will retain on average roughly 52 per cent of its original value after three years/36,000 miles of ownership, with the mid-range Edge trim models performing the best. Compare that to the old Aygo, which was expected to retain around 39 per cent of its original list price after the same period.
