ANOTHER week, another cracking city car; this time the newly minted Toyota Aygo must take the plaudits for its winning ways.
Last time out for me in this popular segment it was the turn of the French with their take on what matters in cars in general and city cars in particular for the early part of the 21st century.
This week is the turn of the Japanese who are also forging ahead on technological and engineering firsts with mighty Toyota refusing to play second fiddle to any other carmaker.
Which is, in my opinion, just as it should be. As with the internecine warfare that has broken out between supermarkets over food pricing, fierce competition between carmakers can only be good for us, the consumers.
With escalating costs of just about all consumer durables, it is good to have some strong elements on our side; and carmakers who compete for our money are a good enough place to start.
