Why choose a Toyota Aygo?

The Toyota Aygo has earned numerous plaudits since it launched in 2005. It recently won the Sunday Times Motors 2022 Award for city/small car of the year.

And it’s easy to see why. Among other things, this affordable runaround gives you sophisticated design, an elevated driving position and striking alloy wheels.

The latest Toyota Aygo X model has smartphone integration, giving you the latest tech at your fingertips. Meanwhile, cameras and sensors make parking a breeze.

What insurance group is my Toyota Aygo in?

The good news is that the Toyota Aygo sits in the lower insurance groups, which makes it cheaper to insure. Every car is categorised in an insurance group between 1 and 50, with group 1 cars being the cheapest to insure.

However, the insurance group your Toyota Aygo belongs to will depend on a few factors, including the exact model type you own and when you bought your car. The engine size, transmission and fuel type will also have a bearing.

Here are some examples of typical insurance groups for the Toyota Aygo.

What cover do I need for my Toyota Aygo?

There are three types of car insurance for your Toyota Ago. Choose between:

  • Comprehensive car insurance gives you the highest level of cover. Both you and your car are covered if you have an accident – no matter who’s at fault
  • Third party fire and theft provides the same cover as third party, but you’ll also be insured if your car is stolen or damaged by fire. It won’t protect you or your Toyota Aygo if you’re in an accident and it’s your fault.
  • Third-party insurance – this is the lowest level of cover and the minimum the law requires. Third-party car insurance covers damage to another driver’s car if you’re at fault. But unfortunately your car won’t be covered.

You’d be forgiven for thinking this is cheapest type of insurance, since it gives you the least amount of cover. But insurance providers often charge more for third-party insurance as they consider the drivers who choose it to be high risk.
