2019 Honda CR-V front

6. Honda CR-V 2.0 i-MMD Hybrid

Test MPG 43.3mpg

The main reason for not choosing the RAV4 is that Honda's CR-V Hybrid offers similar strengths, along with better comfort, refinement, passenger space and real-world economy.

True MPG 46.9mpg

Hyundai's Ioniq scooped our 2019 Hybrid Car of the Year award, because it's spacious, well priced and feels reassuringly normal to drive.

4. Toyota Yaris 1.5 Hybrid

New Toyota Yaris Hybrid vs Renault Zoe

True MPG 49.2mpg

The Yaris Hybrid's average True MPG is good rather than great for a small car, but it has the best urban figure of any model we've ever tested: 80.0mpg. Throw in light controls, a tight turning circle and a supple yet well controlled ride, and it makes a fine city car.
