Good afternoon everyone, sorry for the lack of activity the last few days, it has been a rather busy weekend! Yesterday I was able to lay my hands on Toyota’s budget city car, the Aygo. The model in question is the X-Play which features Bluetooth, air conditioning, electric windows as well as cruise control. All this comes in a 5 door package which costs £10, 495 new.
Not everything is good news in the cabin however. For starters I could not for the life of me find a comfortable driving position. The steering wheel offers only rake adjustment which worsens the problem. I am 6 foot 2 so it is fair to say I am tall so I imagine shorter drivers will have less problems. Despite having the steering wheel set to it’s highest setting the bottom was still rubbing on my thighs and I could not put the seat back further as I wouldn’t have been able to reach the wheel.
Space in the back? Well, sitting behind me than it’s almost out of the question unless you are a child or willing to get rather uncomfortable. Having said that space in the back will come as a premium regardless because of the small dimensions of the car. The boot is also rather small so will struggle to get a week’s shop in there.
