Its a small car with a higher revving engine - got to expect noise. Should have paid more attention on the test drive - you did test drive?

Sounds like typical 3-cylinder sounds. Every engine layout has its own distinct sound, and a three-cylinder does sound more "throaty" or "warbly" than an in-line four.

My advice is to test drive a car before you buy. I imagine this engine is a derivative of that fitted to the C1. That is a three cylinder Toyota developed engine. My daughter drives a C1 and it does roar on acceleration. So it's not out of the ordinary. If you buy a car without a test drive you take a chance.
