Well, small cars are too dangerous for US road. But if they put big trucks then
the speed would be scary! I would personally love to add more on the power and sacrifice some mileage.

Fascinating car and one that looks exceptionally well placed to capitalise on our growing fascination with cheap, economical motoring.

Aygo is a fascinating car, made more appealing in this guise with the Platinum trimmings.

The Toyota is the costliest of the three cars developed with Citroen and Peugeot, but it’s the best looking and Toyota dealers are highly respected.

Honestly, the first release of this one is not that good so I’ve lost my faith on this one but maybe this new Aygo will be that good as I’ve expected. The price range is quite reasonable for UK retailers and also the cost for the addons is that affordable.
