Toyota Aygo interior
The Toyota Aygo’s 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system looks pretty smart and it’s fairly easy to use, but interior quality could be better.
The Toyota Aygo‘s interior is simply laid out which helps make everything easy to use. The heating and ventilation controls are grouped in a single ring on the centre console around an orange and black screen that’s bright enough to read in direct sunlight.
All models come with a 7-inch touchscreen display that’s mounted high up on the centre console so it’s easy to glance at as you drive along. There’s also a leather steering wheel and the option to colour-code the air vent surrounds to match the Toyota Aygo’s bodywork.
Sadly, most of the Toyota Aygo’s plastic trims feel very hard and scratchy – even in top-spec models. That’s not unusual in a small car, but some more upmarket alternatives – such as the VW Up and SEAT Mii – come with a few softer plastics dotted around their cabins.

Even the entry-level Toyota Aygo has a 7-inch touchscreen that’s much easier to read than the smartphone-app-based infotainment system you get in a VW Up.
This comes with some bright menu icons to help make it as simple as possible to use on the move and, crucially, a physical volume knob for the stereo.
You don’t get satellite-navigation as standard, but that’s not a big problem because all cars come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring.
The reasonably responsive screen makes entering an address using these apps pretty simple and the high-contrast graphics mean you won’t easily miss an upcoming turning. You can also use these features to play music from the likes of Spotify through the Toyota Aygo’s stereo.
All versions get a four-speaker audio set-up, but JBL Edition cars get a bespoke system from audio experts JBL.
