With the launch of the latest Aygo for Europe, Toyota has proved that you can buy a small car and still benefit from connected technology. As a whole the car is a pretty impressive step forward from the original, and certain trim levels include Toyota's x-touch multimedia system and built in Mirrorlink.
Mirrorlink is an open standard and is deployed in vehicles from various manufacturers, including VW. It allows you to connect your compatible smartphone to the in-car system and replicate supported applications and phone functions from the cars touch display.
The Toyota system also supports bluetooth music streaming as well as AUX input and USB, and it supports album art, too. The x-touch system provides a rear camera as standard and a 7-inch full touchscreen display integrated into the center console. Prices in the UK for models with all this onboard tech start at £10,995 and it will be on the road from July 1.
