YOU pays your money and you takes your choice when it comes to the Toyota Aygo, Citroen C1 or Peugeot 107 because they are all built in the same factory in the Czech Republic.
They have the same body but different faces and are all powered by the same 67bhp Toyota-designed one-litre three cylinder petrol engine.
This is one of the car’s strengths. I recently drove the Aygo Black three door and it was hugely enjoyable but like the other two, you have to wind it up to get anything like reasonable performance.
It’s a car best suited to town work, where its nippy nature, reasonably comfortable ride and easy parking make it just about perfect.
There’s not much acceleration for overtaking on the open road, but it can just about keep up with the traffic flow on the motorway.
However, it is pretty noisy over a long journey, and the stereo has to be turned way up to be able to hear it!
As the name implies, this version comes with black paint and it also has alloy wheels and Alcantara and leather upholstery.
Running costs are among the lowest you can get and unlike the other two similar cars, this one comes with a five year 99,000 mile warranty.
