The Toyota Yaris Hybrid has some important strengths, not least its superb fuel economy, excellent reliability and generous standard kit. However, it can’t match the VW Polo for interior quality or ride comfort, and it's pretty cramped inside, especially compared with the Honda Jazz. The entry-level engine and mid-spec Design trim will suit most buyers' needs.

Luxurious Dynamic trim sits at the top of the range above Dynamic. It adds blind spot monitoring, front and rear parking sensors, replaces the JBL stereo with a six speaker one (unless you pay extra) and auto folding door mirrors. A bit rich for our liking.

Its 0-60mph time – 9.7 seconds – won’t set any lap records, but this regular hybrid petrol engine is super-economical. It doesn't struggle to get up to motorway speeds but is noisy if you put your foot down to get there.
