Pepper is small but not strong… – Toyota Aygo X test drive – Car Engine

Uncoated interior metal surfaces are sold as a good style element

In the category of minicars, too, the preference for shoppers has turned to recreational cars, and the third generation of the Aygo has become so – in practice, the floor has risen 11 mm higher in practice. Toyota has recently offered such models under the name Cross (Yaris Cross, Corolla Cross), referring to the X-face of its predecessor at Aygo by not writing the name Cross but using the letter representing the cross.

The model has been relocated to a completely new foundation, on the exact same TNGA-B floor that Yaris uses (the rear floor section is unique), due to Toyota’s acquisition of a former joint venture with PSA in the Czech Republic, where the minicar in addition, the small car is already being manufactured. The Aygo X has expanded significantly in all directions while reducing its own weight, so the customer will only benefit from the change – provided they don’t need a big door. Of the new generation, only five-door is produced, which speeds up passenger changes, but the size of the rear doors is still quite small. If you get over the bottleneck, you face a low headroom, the space is passive – there is a more generous design than the competition. The front seats get the attention, for example, only their seats get decorative stitching on the richly fitted models.

A canopy can be requested for full equipment, which in our experience is a great option

The switches are familiar from the sister models, but the design of the dashboard is unique, with a 7-inch touchscreen headunit as standard – there is already phone mirroring and remote access thanks to the MyT application. The 8-inch screen is included in the HUF 280,000 Tech package or at the top of Style. By the way, equipment! At the basic level, less sound insulation is installed, which means that the rolling is 6% louder, we did not have the opportunity to experience the “loud” version during the test, and it will not be the case among Hungarian test cars. The canvas roof has been retained, but it can only be chosen at the Executive and Limited level for HUF 450,000 after buying the JBL hi-fi for HUF 350,000, or even for the Smart package with keyless entry (HUF 200,000) ).

Decorative stitching and space are also ahead – in the press photo, the size of the rear legroom has been “increased” with the front seat fully extended. Daily shopping is easily accommodated in the luggage compartment, the 1.0-liter suction motor is quiet and economical, but it soon runs out of power outside the city limits

If we keep to the prices, the drop-in is HUF 4,780,000, for which they give a white body, we have to sacrifice HUF 130,000 for the gray and black paintwork. From the style equipment upwards, the two-color polish (red-black, beige-black, blue-black or green-black) comes at a basic price, which refers to the spices, as they run under the fancy names of Chili, Ginger, Juniper and Cardamom.


The two-color paintwork indicates a high level of equipment, which is accompanied by some extra sound insulation. Due to the larger rims, the track is wider than the Yaris, so it’s no wonder it turns well

I left the driving experience to the end of the driving test because it’s pretty much the only point in the design where there’s no choice. The car is manufactured only with the 1.0-liter, 72-horsepower engine, there is no trace of electrification – it is not planned – it is possible to decide whether you are asking for a 5-speed manual transmission or a stepless automatic (600,000 HUF). The latter seems to be a better choice because, due to the long gear ratio, the clutch has to be slid a lot on an incline, so even driving out of an underground garage can be stressful. Within the city, there is no problem with the dynamics, and the Aygo X is good enough to run on the highway, but the latter is not the favorite terrain, as it has been on the winding mountain road: despite turning better than its predecessor due to the wider track, it simply has no power. uphill for acceleration. Downhill is the lack of engine braking, but we’ve gotten used to it from modern cars. The car and its passenger feel best when we are rolling around the city at a comfortable pace while enjoying the warming rays of the sun through the open canvas roof.
