    Kia Picanto or Toyota Aygo – Any feedback?

    Obviously, not a rod related question, but...

    My wife needs a new car and has narrowed the choice down to two:
    ( Both petrol engines, with less than 10,000 miles on the clock. )

    2016 Kia Picanto 1.25

    2016 Toyota Aygo 1.0

    The car will be used daily in London, but rarely more than 5 miles at a time.

    I know there are better ‘City Car’ choices out there, but she likes the look of these.

    So, if there wasn’t a “None of the above” choice, which one would you pick and why?

    Cheers, Paul.

    scotb - Thanks, that is just the sort of feedback I was looking for.

    Funnily enough, the motorbike in my avatar photo had a three cylinder, 955cc engine.

    But it went a bit quicker than these things.


    Cheers, Paul.

    Sit in the rear seat of an aygo and see how close your head is to the rear screen. Now imagine a range rover behind you. That is enough for me to not buy one.
    Piccanto is a decent little car

    Toyota Aygo for me because we have a Peugeot 107 for almost 3 years now ! All share running gear with Citroen C1 . Just on 62000 from 48 when we bought it . Getting a bit louder but I'd say that's chain slap as it's due a service. 55-60 running around , exactly teh same driving conditions , rarely more than 5 miles in one go.

    It's all a trade off in that size of car you sacrifice 'luxury for a little pocket rocket go kart. We'd have another in the blink of an eye. Eayly ones suffered clutch issues but have now been upgraded to cure that.

    Kev, you've obviously forgotten your hot rod roots, Kia all the way, as, according to this thread https://www.rodsnsods.co.uk/forum/wh...od-road-539682 you can make one look like a pop

    Agree about the 107, had one from new 2010, perfect town car except watch out for water leaking into the boot area. Well known problem since the model first appeared, I've done all the fixes but still water gets in occasionally.
    Whirrr whirrr chuff chuff de chuff........chuff......BRUMMMM!

    Sorry dont know anything about the Kia

    But i have a 2005 aygo and its brilliant ive been all over the country in it always returns about 60 mpg and keeps up well on the motorways, i have a duff back and i dont seem to suffer as much in the aygo as i do in all other cars.
    town wise i can always find a space as its so small and easy to park, maintenance is cheap and everybody seems to know all about them so repairs if required are quick and easy
    Mine has done nearly 20k miles in the last year no problem
    60mpg
    £20 tax
    cheapest group ins going

    Happy Days
