All models feature Vehicle Stability Control, LED daytime running lamps and LED rear combination lamps, as well as a Tyre Pressure Warning system. Optional safety features (standard on the flagship AYGO x-clusiv) include Toyota Safety Sense's Pre-Collision System, which uses a camera and laser to detect other vehicles in the road ahead. When the system detects a potential collision the driver is alerted with audio and visual warnings and brake assistance is activated. If the driver fails to brake in time the brakes automatically engage to prevent or mitigate a collision. AYGO x-clusiv also benefits from Toyota Safety Sense's Lane Departure Alert which gives the driver audible and visual warnings if the vehicle starts to deviate from its lane without the turn indicator being applied, allowing you to take corrective action.
Verdict: while the AYGO can provide simple, no-frills city transport at the lower end of the range there’s lots of extra scope for fun and personalisation as you explore the line-up. It’s a fun and stylish small hatchback with as much connectivity and technology as you could wish for.
