With a host of standard features such as anti-lock brakes (ABS) enhanced by electronic brake force distribution (EBD), 14-inch alloy wheels, driver and front passenger airbags and the option of an automatic transmission, the Agya simply offers more for less; while offering buyers the peace of mind of a quality Toyota-backed product. The Agya is a direct replacement of the Toyota Aygo.
The all-new Agya perfectly matches value to the vivaciousness of a compact urban car.
The front bumper is aggressively sculpted with a 3-dimensional design for an assertive, sporty look and a wide stance. This is further enhanced by upwardly curving projector headlamps that ooze attitude through their teardrop-shape and feature a lens acting as a magnifying glass to increase the brightness of the light beam for optimum visibility.
At the side, the door handles are colour coded, as are the electrically retractable mirrors that neatly integrate the indicator lens. And showing off some more smartness at the back is a roof-mounted rear spoiler and LED-powered rear lights.
To maximise interior and boot space (which can be increased through its fixed folding rear seat), the all-new Agya has been specially designed with each wheel positioned at the outermost corner of the vehicle’s body. Further to this end, the dashboard is a floating unit that allows for more space around the typical placement of the transmission tunnel, making space for a pair of cupholders ahead of the gear lever.
The generously appointed cabin features a mixed use of silver and black plastics and attractive, hard wearing fabric for the seats with a touch of polyurethane for the gear lever and steering wheel. The instrument binnacle features easy-to-ready graphics and sees the tachometer and MID flanking the speedometer.
All Agya models feature assertively styled anthracite-coloured 14-inch alloy wheels shod with 175-65-R14 tyres, along with a similar-sized steel spare wheel, serving as backup. The suspension is configured as standard-for-the-segment McPherson struts at the front and a torsion beam axle at the rear.
The Agya’s nippy but three-cylinder, fuel-injected petrol engine serves to make light work of urban commutes. Powering the front wheels and developing maximum power of 49kW @ 6000 rpm and peak torque of 89Nm @ 4400 rpm, the engine is mated to either a slick-shifting five-speed manual transmission for ultimate driver control; or a self-shifting four-speed automatic transmission for complete driving comfort.
The manual version of the Agya sips an average of just 4.8 l/100 km, while completing the 0-100km/h sprint in 14.6 seconds and runs to a top speed of 165km/h.
Its automatic variant consumes 4.9 l/100 km, accelerating from standstill to 100km/h in 16.3 seconds and has a top speed of 145km/h. An eco-indicator assists drivers in achieving fuel efficient driving.
Driven at the recommended speeds, the Agya’s 33-litre fuel tank should yield a maximum range of around 680 km.
The Agya range comprises two transmission options – manual and automatic – along with the choice of an audio system or without. Beyond the above is the Agya’s impressive list of extensive of standard comfort features.
Interior comfort is taken care of by power steering and automatic air conditioning, key trip information is conveyed to the driver via a Multi-Information Display, while all passengers enjoy the luxury of electrically operated windows; and an auxiliary 12-volt socket is on hand for charging additional mobile devices. Powering up the Agya experience is a Push Start button and remote central locking.
Finally, safety and style go hand in hand through the fitment of driver and front passenger airbags; 14-inch alloy wheels and Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS) equipped with Emergency Brake Force Distribution (EBD).
On so-equipped models, the Agya’s double-DIN touchscreen multimedia unit features CD, Bluetooth, auxiliary and USB connectivity. An optional touchscreen audio system will be available to customers as a dealer-fitted option. When connected via a USB cable, both of these interfaces display the screen of the smartphone on the infotainment screen and links the phone’s audio output to the vehicle’s two speakers – enabling navigation and audio streaming apps as well as enhanced telephony services.
Owning the road is one thing, but nothing beats having fun while doing it safely.
The Agya’s ABS brakes always keeps drivers in control. Brake pressure is modulated to allow for continued tyre rotation under extreme braking conditions, where excessive pressure would ordinarily lock the brakes and induce a skid, eliminating the ability to turn and prolonging the braking distance.
EBD is a further evolution of ABS; individually distributing braking force to each corner to allow for variances in weight distribution and tyre grip under braking, to increase stability, stopping distance and vehicle control. To mitigate injury in the event of a frontal impact, the Agya is also fitted with driver and front passenger airbags as standard.
At the back, two ISOFIX mounting brackets serve to secure baby seats to the rear seat, while the rear doors are fitted with child locks for complete peace of mind. Safety also meets convenience through the fitment a vehicle security system in the form of an alarm/immobiliser.
