What Car? Personal Shopper

Dear What Car?,

Can you help, please? I've had several Honda-badged hybrids over the years, while my husband has had estate cars.

Now we want to downsize to just have the one car, and we want a hybrid (not a plug-in model, though) with an automatic gearbox.

An estate car would suit our needs, but I have heard that the big batteries for hybrid cars can take up a lot of room. We are keen to get a new car but also want to lower our fuel costs and emissions.


The brief

  • A hybrid, but not a plug-in hybrid
  • Automatic gearbox
  • Preferably an estate car

Well, we can certainly help Jenny here. First up, it's Darren's new car choice.
