Despite launching as recently as 2005, the Toyota Aygo has experienced a rapid rise and ranks as one of the most popular small cars in the UK market, particularly among newly qualified and learner drivers.

The model’s extensive list of customisable features has won the hearts of British drivers, while its sleek exterior appears to defy its economical running costs.

Toyota Aygo at a glance

  • When it first launched in 2005, the Aygo was aimed squarely at the city car market and came in three and five-door guises.
  • Since then, the model has received several facelifts to keep its sporty looks up to date, with a second generation arriving in 2014.
  • The latest Aygo includes a raft of safety features, including Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Hill Start Assist Control (HAC).

Insurance groups and tax bands for popular Toyota Aygo models

When deciding on a price that’s right, insurers will weigh up various factors relating to yourself on your vehicle. This is likely to include things like your age and occupation, but could also include the insurance group of the car you want to cover. These are bands running from 1-50, that reflect the typical cost of that model’s parts and repairs. Generally speaking, cars in higher-numbered bands could be charged more for cover.

Another banding system to look out for as a driver is that used for Vehicle Excise Duty. Here, cars are categorised based on their CO2 emissions, with the most polluting vehicles being charged more.

Tax bands and Toyota insurance groups for some popular editions of the Aygo include:

Model Insurance Group Tax Band

At Ageas, we’d like to offer our comprehensive cover to as many customers as possible. However, we can’t guarantee a policy for every driver and for every model of car, and this could include some versions of the Toyota Aygo.

We will determine if we can provide you with a quote based on several factors that include your car and your personal circumstances.
