The best hybrid car deals
If you're in the market for a new car, then naturally you want to get the best price possible. And the good news is that by buying through What Car?, you're guaranteed a great deal.
Many people are still understandably nervous about the prospect of going into a showroom and haggling with a salesman, though, which is why we've launched What Car? New Car Buying, a free service that lets you browse through discounted new car deals online.
Today, we've rounded up the best deals on hybrid cars. These cars offer low emissions and are especially good choices if you live in the city, where more polluting cars are increasingly facing heavier taxes. We're still looking for space and quality in this class, as well as good driving manners. In this selection of deals, we've included both hybrids which you have to plug in – which offer a greater electric driving range – and those which you don't.
These deals are all based on our Target Price – What Car?'s way of making sure you don't pay over the odds. It's set by our team of mystery shoppers, and represents a fair price for your car. You could save even more, however, by going through our New Car Buying service.
Simply click on the relevant deal to find out more about it, or call us on 03302 216207 and we will be happy to help.
BMW 5 Series
The 5 Series won our overall Car of the Year Award in 2017, and remains the best luxury car you can buy. Its interior quality puts rivals which cost twice as much to shame, plus it's great to drive, and incredibly quiet and comfortable. This plug-in hybrid version allows you to drive for around 20 miles on purely electric power.
What Car? deal: Save £5552 on a 530e M Sport auto – Target Price £44,458
The Ioniq can be bought as a hybrid, a plug-in hybrid and a fully electric car. It's the hybrid which we think makes the most sense, though, because it feels sprightly around town and doesn't struggle on the motorway.
What Car? deal: Save £1714 on a 1.6 GDi Hybrid Premium DCT auto – Target Price £21,891
This hybrid SUV offers low CO2 emissions and a long warranty, and there's also reasonable space inside for your family and their luggage. Power comes from a 1.6-litre petrol engine working in conjunction with an electric motor to maximise efficiency.
What Car? deal: Save £1253 on a 1.6 GDi Hybrid 3 DCT auto – Target Price £24,582
If you're looking for low running costs in a coupé-shaped package, then the RC certainly has appeal, especially in hybrid form. It's well equipped and feels plush inside, but has a small boot and cramped rear seats.
What Car? deal: Save £2445 on a 300h 2.5 CVT [Leather] auto – Target Price £37,620
The E-Class makes more of a case for itself than almost any other mainstream Mercedes. It’s classy, well equipped and comfortable, plus this plug-in hybrid version should get you most of the way to work on electric power.
What Car? deal: Save £4985 on a E300e SE Premium Plus 9G-Tronic auto – Target Price £46,870
The Countryman is Mini's take on a small SUV, so mixes the cutesy styling of the big-selling Mini hatchback with a raised ride height and chunky body cladding. It's got a decent boot, too, and a high-quality interior. This plug-in hybrid version comes with bespoke styling and readouts on the instrument panel, too.
What Car? deal: Save £1629 on a 1.5 Cooper S E Exclusive ALL4 PHEV auto [Comf] – Target Price £33,726
Smart Fortwo EQ Cabriolet
A tiny turning circle and low running costs make the Smart Fortwo a compelling choice. It's fun, but some rivals are better all-rounders.
What Car? deal: Save £1648 on a 60kW EQ Prime Premium Plus auto – Target Price £22,007
Toyota reckons that more than 90% of Corolla buyers will choose one of the two hybrid options on offer, and both offer seriously low CO2 emissions. The Corolla also has a comfortable ride, and comes with loads of standard kit.
What Car? deal: Save £777 on a 1.8 VVT-i Hybrid Design CVT auto [Panoramic Roof] – Target Price £26,023
Toyota's Ford Fiesta and Vauxhall Corsa rival is well equipped and offers a comfortable ride. It can be noisy on the move, though.
