The all-new Toyota Agya is a five-door compact urban hatchback with generous interior space complemented by compact exterior dimensions. Cognisant of the financial challenges faced by all South Africans in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Agya is aimed at discerning budget-conscious first-time buyers.

With a host of 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 offers more for less.

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. This is further enhanced by projector headlamps that ooze attitude 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. And showing off at the rear is a roof-mounted rear spoiler and LED-powered rear lights.

To maximise interior and boot space, the all-new Agya has been specially designed with each wheel positioned at the outermost corner of the vehicle’s body. The generous cabin features a mixed-use of silver and black plastics and attractive, hard wearing fabric for the seats. The instrument binnacle features easy-to-read graphics and sees the tachometer and multi-information display flanking the speedometer.

To maximise its value, all Agya models feature assertively-styled 14-inch alloy wheels shod with 175-65-R14 tyres. 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 998cm3, three-cylinder, fuel-injected petrol engine makes light work of urban commutes. Powering the front wheels and developing maximum power of 49kW @ 6 000 rpm and peak torque of 89Nm @ 4 400 rpm, the engine is mated to either a five-speed manual transmission; or a self-shifting four-speed automatic transmission for complete driving comfort.

Interior comfort is taken care of by power steering, automatic air conditioning and a multi-information display, while all passengers enjoy the luxury of electrically operated windows and an auxiliary 12-volt socket for charging additional mobile devices. Powering up the Agya experience is a Push Start button and remote central locking.

Safety and style go hand in hand thanks to front passenger airbags; 14-inch alloy wheels and Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS) equipped with Emergency Brake-Force Distribution (EBD). 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. Safety also meets convenience with the fitment of a vehicle security system in the form of an alarm/immobiliser.
