The Toyota Agya is the most affordable offering from the Japanese automaker. We find out which of the Toyota Agya trims holds its value better over time.
Introduced to the local market in 2020, the Toyota Agya has quickly garnered popularity on South African roads. With the small hatchback, value for money is the name of the game, as although there aren’t two distinct trim options in the range, the model can be had with or without a sound system.
The customers of the Toyota Agya can also choose to have the model with either a 5-speed manual gearbox or a 4-speed automatic transmission. All derivatives of the Agya are motivated by a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine producing 49 kW and 89 Nm of torque. Now before you get an Instant Offer or your car and start searching for new or used Toyota Agya models on AutoTrader, let us find out which trim holds its value better.
2020 Toyota Agya 1.0 Manual
The Toyota Agya 1.0 in manual guise and without a radio system is the entry point to the Agya range. Customers might expect very few comfort items in this budget range, however, all the models come fitted with electric windows front and rear as well as air conditioning.

2020 Toyota Agya 1.0 Manual with Audio
The next tier up in the Toyota Agya range is the 1.0 in manual guise but with an audio system. Much of the rest remains the same, including the dual front airbags and ABS braking which feature as standard across the range.

2020 Toyota Agya 1.0 Auto
As alluded to earlier, the Toyota Agya does come with a 4-speed automatic transmission too. While this model will provide more ease of operation in traffic, it is 0.1 L / 100 km less frugal than the manual variants, which is claimed to return an average fuel consumption figure of 4.8 L / 100 km.

Value retained: 84.64%
2020 Toyota Agya 1.0 Auto with Audio
This variant of the Toyota Agya can be considered to be the flagship in the range, not only offering the 4-speed automatic transmission but also the optional audio system. However, don’t expect much more premium appointments than the other models as the entire range offers the same trim, such as the cloth upholstery and plastic door cards and dashboard.
Price new (2020): R 196 300
Price used (2022): R 160 437
Average used mileage (2022): 43 829 km
Value retained: 81.73%
As can be seen in the average mileage, all four derivatives travelled similar distances over the last few years and, as such, shouldn’t play too big a part in the differences in value retained. And when looking at the values retained by each variant over the last two years, all seem to depreciate at similar rates regardless of the transmission or the optional audio system. However, as per the figures, both the manual derivatives do seem to retain slightly better values than the automatic variants, with the entry-level derivative being the option that holds its value the best.
