There are very few cars on the market that benefit the buyer, the manufacturer and the environment all at a time and such cars are known as a masterpiece. The 2013 Toyota Aygo is an example of such cars that make us happy with its affordable price and low running cost, it makes happy the manufacturer too with its high demand and good sales and at the same time is highly environment friendly and the CO2 emission is 99g/km to 104g/km that is about 50% less than that when it was first introduced in 2005.
The Aygo is basically a super mini car offered to the segment of hatchback that is available in 3 door and 5 door body styles. The 2013 model year is an improved version of the super mini and that will take it to certain high levels of satisfaction in different areas. This is a perfect city car and the 2012 facelift made it more adorable and sophisticated.

The interior of this funky small car is a very comfortable and roomy for the front as the front passenger and driver both can enjoy plenty of headroom, shoulder room and legroom whereas the rear end is not as roomy and as comfortable as the front end. It is no wonder because this is a car that is hardly 3.4 meters long and Toyota didn’t call it a wagon so it is usual.

The instrument panel is well equipped, supportive front seats and the cabin’s look make it equally funky just like its exterior. As the car is a cheap car or a car that cost you very low so you will find frequent use of hard plastic inside the car.
