The Toyota Aygo has been named AXA Northern Ireland Car of the Year 2006/2007.

The awards, which are sponsored by AXA Insurance, were presented by members of the Ulster Motoring Writers Association (UMWA) at a prestigious ceremony held in Belfast on 15 March.

Speaking at the ceremony, Chairman of the Ulster Motoring Writers’ Association, Jim McCauley, said: “Of all the vehicles judged in this years competition the Toyota Aygo received the ultimate accolade for its charm, performance, economy and low running costs. Although one of three cars built on the same platform, the overall personality of the Aygo and the thorough integration of its corporate identity saw it nudge through to take the honours.”

The overall winner was chosen from the five group winners which were:

AXA Small Car Category:

AXA Medium Car Category:

AXA Executive Car Category:

AXA Sporting Car Category:

AXA Leisure Car Category:

AXA Safety Engineering Award:
