Best and worst hybrid cars 2019
Everyone from Toyota to Porsche sells hybrid cars these days, but which models should you consider and which should you avoid?...
4. Hyundai Ioniq
The Ioniq has long been one of our favourite hybrids, because it combines low running costs and a relatively low price with a reassuringly normal driving experience, plus it's more practical and smarter inside than its main rival, the Toyota Prius. Hyundai offers conventional hybrid, plug-in hybrid and fully electric versions, although it's the former that we rate highest.
3. Honda CR-V Hybrid
Honda's latest CR-V SUV offers excellent space for both passengers and luggage, and the hybrid version – which combines a 2.0-litre petrol engine with an electric motor – provides plenty of poke. It's also the most efficient and refined CR-V you can buy, so makes a great family car.
2. Volvo XC90 T8
The T8 version of the XC90 hides an ace up its sleeve: it's the only plug-in hybrid seven-seat SUV on sale today. As if that weren't enough, it's also the quickest XC90 by some margin, and yet it doesn't compromise what made the biggest Volvo appealing to begin with: its classy and flexible interior.
