I had a quick look at a new Aygo today and was really disappointed with it compared to my old C1. I certainly won't be getting a new one any time soon.

The rear blind spots seem to be bigger. The plastics were glossy which would scratch easily and show blemishes. Also, the controls on the dash were smaller. I love the large, easy to user heater controls on my older C1.

What do others think? Other than built in sat nav, are there any other benefits?

My mum has a new Aygo, it has a reversing camera. Personally I still prefer to see what's about.
Seems the newer the car the more chance there is of computer trouble killing it.

We got a 2008 107 and a newer 108 2014 in the family, both with 1.0 engine and they are different. Agree our 108 is harder to see out of rear and the interior is very black, at least our 107 has some lighter grey to break it up a bit. Worth driving it as our 108 does drive alot smoother. The 108 is geared/ecu for economy so the 107 is more enjoyable fun to drive, but 108 feels more composed/solid on the road.

Also, it got proper glovebox, driver seat height and seats that remember position, dipstick easier to read,better leccy window buttons, better stereo and phone linkage, 6 airbags, slightly bigger boot, bigger tyres on ours.

Saying that don't think we will be rushing out to swap our 107 for a 108, cos still like it alot, but we looked at late model C1s and 107s prior to to getting 108, and think it was worth spending bit more for all little improvements.

Seems like a strange thing to upgrade. These are the same engines aren't they? Out of curiosity, do you think a new dipstick would work in the older engine?

The dipstick and it's tube has been moved to front of the engine and think it shorter, so won't work with older engine. Our 107s dipstick is quite hard to read a common complaint I've heard, so good they actually seem listened and sorted it, much like many of the other improvements they made.

I don’t think these people take any notice of what we write to be honest.
Long term owners of Citroen’s etc know how to check the oil.
At the weekend l checked my girlfriends 5 year old C3 the oil was harder to than mine.
The dipstick has a crisscross pattern on it that should help l believe.
Maybe the oil was due to be changed, l’m not allowed to touch her car.

Be nice if they did a official C1/108/Aygo GTi with the supercharged 1KR-FE engine

I keep looking at the new Aygo/108/C1 but my current 57Reg 107 has no aircon, no parking sensors, no reversing camera, no satnav, no infotainment, simple electronics, requires me to reach across to wind the passenger window up, practical non shiny trim, and at 123k miles just keeps on going .

Nah, I'll keep the old one until it drops thanks!

Well if you look after it, you will have plenty of time to save up your money.
A member posted in the week that his model just hit the 200,000 mile mark.
