BMW 3 Series 330e
Save up to £1736

BMW 3 Series 320d front

Verdict: The 3 Series leads the charge in the premium executive car class. Its primary appeal is in the way it drives, but its engines, standard equipment list and infotainment system are first rate as well. The firm ride on M Sport models is just about the only thing we can grumble about in this near-flawless executive car. Read more: BMW 3 Series review

BMW X5 xDrive45e
Save up to £5350

BMW X5 2020 RHD front cornering

Verdict: The X5 is a smooth and classy luxury SUV but it's not as practical as its best rivals and relatively expensive to buy. Opt for the xDrive45e, though, and you are buying one of the most impressive plug-in hybrids around, combining all the best points of the standard X5 with a substantial real-world electric range.

Ford Kuga PHEV
Save up to £2292

Ford Kuga 2020 RHD front left tracking

Verdict: Measured against other plug-in-hybrid large SUVs the Kuga is a very competitive proposition. The relatively long electric driving range is a bonus, while the car is decently large, practical and good to drive, albeit a shade behind the very best in the class. Read more: Ford Kuga review

Honda CR-V Hybrid
Save up to £2890

Honda CR-V Hybrid

Verdict: The CR-V hybrid is huge inside and its practicality boosted by neat tricks such as rear seats that fold up. It also punches above its weight in terms of standard kit levels, with even the mid-range SE getting dual-zone climate control, LED headlamps, sat-nav and lane-keeping assistance. Read more: Honda CR-V review

Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid
Save up to £2634

Hyundai Ioniq

Verdict: The hybrid version of the Ioniq is a credible alternative to its rivals, with the plug-in hybrid (PHEV) offering an even more usable and efficient option for eco-friendly drivers. It offers a plush interior and strong performance, even on undulating roads. Read more: Hyundai Ioniq review

Kia Niro PHEV
Save up to £2112

2020 Kia Niro PHEV front 3/4

Verdict: Perhaps not quite the world beater that the related fully electric e-Niro is, but this car does enough, well enough and for a low enough price to be a compelling prospect among PHEV SUV rivals, particularly when you deep dive into its frugal running costs. Read more: Kia Niro review

Mercedes A250e 
Save up to £2018

FAMILY CAR: Mercedes A-Class A250e AMG Line

Verdict: A fine car by any standards, but the hybrid set-up delivers serious financial benefits whether you're buying privately or receiving one as a company car. With an official starting price of less than £33,000 it is also the first plug-in hybrid to offer an official electric range of more than 40 miles. Read more: Mercedes A-Class review

Skoda Superb iV
Save up to £3093

Skoda Superb iV

Verdict: The Superb is pretty comfortable, well equipped, great value for money and one of the roomiest cars in its class. The addition of a plug-in hybrid option to the range just adds to its appeal, delivering potentially great economy and low running costs to add to the list of positives. Read more: Skoda Superb review

Toyota Corolla
Save up to £1829

Toyota Corolla GR 2020 front tracking

Toyota RAV4
Save up to £1817

Toyota RAV4

Verdict: Yes, the RAV4 is a little pricier to buy than some other large SUVs, but you should make that back down the line through its strong resale values. If you’re a company car driver, the RAV4 should work out to be one of the cheapest large SUVs on company car tax, too. Read more: Toyota RAV4 review

Toyota Yaris Hybrid
Save up to £231

Toyota Yaris Hybrid front three quarters

Verdict: Such is the efficiency of the Yaris hybrid - which has set records for urban frugality in our True MPG tests, that it turns a car that is an also-ran in the competitive small car category in to a class leader. Other standout features include Toyota's fabled reliability. Read more: Toyota Yaris review

Volkswagen Passat GTE
Save up to £5732

Volkswagen Passat GTE Estate front tracking

Verdict: The Passat GTE is spacious and refined, with an impressive hybrid system that makes the most of the electric battery.
