Exciting indeed! The Aygo X-Cite is a trendy addition to the Toyota Aygo line-up, albeit a bit of a big price jump in comparison to its siblings.

From getting into it for the first time I didn’t want to get out, it is perfect for the younger style-conscious market and it stands out against its often bland competitors.
It is a sprightly little car that is, simply put, a lot of fun. The electrically operated retractable canvas roof ensures that everyone in the car experiences the freedom of the wind in their hair and its infotainment is by far one of the quickest and most user-friendly I have encountered.
Being incredibly fuel efficient and small makes it the perfect vehicle for finding your way through urban streets. The 1-litre petrol engine delivers 51kW of power, and even though this might not sound like much it is actually very quick to accelerate and able to perform well in first and second gears alone from robot to robot. The loading bay is small, as can be expected, but we were able to fit more than we thought we would, when putting the back seats down. I must say, I wouldn’t mind owning it!
