The Toyota Aygo recently missed out on the top spot in our True MPG real-world economy test of the cheapest cars to run on the market, placing third after its sister car, the Peugeot 108, and the Dacia Sandero 1.5 dCi.
In spite of its bronze medal for economy, the Aygo still managed an admirable 54.0mpg, and today’s deal brings its asking price down to £8433 – that’s cheaper than both of the cars that beat it on fuel economy.

The Aygo’s running costs are impressive. Although its fuel economy of 54.0mpg isn’t quite as high as the Dacia or the Peugeot, this is no mean feat for a petrol car.
The Aygo has a slightly more upmarket interior than the Peugeot – although it still feels cheap in some areas. It has a far stronger reliability record than the Peugeot though.
X-Play spec offers air-con, a rev counter, Bluetooth and a leather steering wheel with audio controls, making the entry level X trim look miserly.
Unfortunately, it shares some of the weaknesses of its sibings, the Peugeot 108 and Citroen C1; it has the same disappointing rear head- and legroom, small, impractical boot and poor level of refinement.
Should I add any options?
There are plenty of extras for anyone who wants to personalise their Aygo, which ones you choose will be down to personal taste.
