7. Toyota Prius
As hard as it is to believe, the Toyota Prius is now in its fourth generation, and the current model marks a significant step forward for the world's best-selling hybrid car.
The big surprise with the latest Prius is that it is not only is it the cleanest and most efficient version yet, it's also the best to drive.
Pick of the range: 1.8 VVTi Business Edition
Unlike its main rival, the Prius, Hyundai's Ioniq is available as a hybrid, a fully electric car and a plug-in hybrid.
Whichever version you choose, light steering makes it easy to drive in town, but the Ioniq is also entertaining on B-roads. Interior quality is good, and practicality decent, while running costs are very low.
Pick of the range: Hybrid Premium
The Astra is also good to drive, practical and well equipped, although some rivals are quieter and more comfortable.
Pick of the range: 1.6 CDTi 110 Tech Line
