First review of prototype by Autocar

Autocar this morning published a first drive review of a Toyota Aygo prototype. Given how much is shared between the two cars, there is some useful information here:

nice find

verdict
Should I buy one?

Sure. Our nod might still be towards a Fiat Panda or a Volkswagen Up (or its sister models), but there’s much to like about the Aygo. The littlest Toyota has sold comparatively well in the UK despite it, typically, being slightly more expensive than its PSA alternatives.
People tend to like Toyota dealers, and as this is the only budget Toyota you can get, a lot of buyers get steered towards it. Last year, in fact, was the Aygo’s record sales year in the UK, which isn’t shabby for a nine-year-old car.
Having received a healthy dose of interestingness and objective improvement, this one deserves to do even better.

i think it's tough to say if you should buy one right now, best to wait for them to be out in full and for the reviews to start rolling in and of course, see them in person.

And here is another Toyota Aygo review from AutoExpress

Toyota's Aygo has succeeded in stealing the headlines from its Peugeot 108 and Citroen C1 sister cars with its dramatic design and clever personalisation options, and it’s impressive from behind the wheel, too.

Im not surprised toyota is stealing the spot light, this is a segment they specialize in and are one of the best in the game

I didnt even know the Aygo was available in UK. I thought it was a car for the asian market only with its funky styling.
