We had tested a small Toyota with a lively 1.0-liter gasoline engine and Cool + equipment package.
Toyota Agya is a small city car that has been launched six years ago. Designed in collaboration with PSA Group and their models (Citroen C1 and Peugeot 107) it share platform. Agya is now available in version of three or five doors and is manufactured in the Czech town of Kolin, as well as his “brothers” from France. It can be purchased with tested 1.0-liter petrol engine and 1.4-liter diesel engine.
This car is built for driving through traffic jams, thanks to its size it is not a problem to find a parking space. Although tiny, the appearance is not limited to simple and annoying lines, but it is refreshing. Even after so many years on the market, the design of this little one still defies age. The design is in my opinion a good shot because with its sleek and sporty lines it “rises” above the competitors. Toyota Agya 1.0 VVT-ITO in this case can thank a combination of body color and gray 14-inch wheels of alloy. Very simple, but very effective.
Toyota Agya boasts a roomy cabin … Although you now think I’m kidding, I have to admit that the interior is roomier than in some larger cars. Complete cab is designed in accordance with the exterior. Prevail rounded forms that combined with “high profile” windscreen creates a pleasant ambiance. The center console, like many other parts, is made of a hard plastic that is not so pleasant to the touch as much as quality. In addition to plastic, here are metal elements which are in the same color as car. In the middle of the center tunnel is the shift lever, and the front of it is a storage compartment glasses and other necessities. Above the box is a 12V socket and another handy compartment and air conditioning.
Although other car does not have this kind of solution, everybody can easily manage to find the ideal inside temperature. Toyota Agya 1.0 VVT-i – interior climate is located above the audio system, and on top of another storage compartment. As you already have noticed, Agya hides a many storage compartments, which in practice proved to be a great advantage. In front of the driver’s seat and the steering wheel a speedometer is located with a digital display conditions of the reservoir. Cute and unusual is independent tachometer (as in smart). In the front two persons of higher growth can easy accommodate, while at the rear seat can squeeze three or two adults. In view of the spacious cabin, boot space had to be withheld. So this Toyota has available only 139 liters storage space, which is enough to accommodate the PVC window measuring 80×80 inches in it. Folding down the rear seat, this area can be increased to 712 liters.
For running the tested model 1.0-liter petrol engine was in charge. Here is a 3-cylinder engine equipped with a variable valve timing (VVT-i) that develops 68 horsepower. Since this is a small engine with one cylinder less than we used to, the sound is different from the kind we hear every day. The sound is sharp and strongly attracted to the accelerator pedal when accelerating. When I’m at acceleration, I guess this little note to 100 km / h in 14.2 seconds, with a top speed of 157 km / h. Accelerations are solid thanks to light weight (830 kg), especially when the engine is kept at high revs. All in all, the Agya is very lively and can deal with bigger and more powerful cars in the city.
On open or city roads that are not well maintained the jumping may occur. This is because the chassis is quite rigid, and the engine delivers a solid performance. Normal driving the turn to jump around just in a few unpleasant jolt. Gears are long, but the short strokes and are very accurate. When in the speed it seem a bit loose, but it’s a feeling. All in all, it does its job well and is well set up for a comfortable drive. Toyota Agya 1.0 VVT-i does not falter even when rapid gear changes. Over the steering wheel the driver gets good feedback from the road, could only be a little more specific. After a week hanging out with these kids, we measured an average fuel consumption of only 5.1 liters, while the Agya in spent slightly more – namely 5.7 liters per 100 kilometers traveled.
