When it comes to small car sales in the UK, the Toyota Yaris has long played second fiddle to mainstream favourites such as the Ford FiestaVauxhall Corsa and  Volkswagen Polo, as well as less familiar models like the Seat Ibiza. But with diesel less popular than ever, the option of hybrid power makes Toyota’s little hatchback well worth a second look if you value low emissions and cheap running costs.

Revisions to the Yaris in 2017 saw end of the slow-selling three-door hatchback body and diesel engine option, and the replacement of the 1.33-litre petrol motor with a more powerful and more economical 1.5-litre one. The same engine features alongside an electric motor in the Yaris Hybrid model, and the hybrid's petrol-electric power remains unique in the small car class.

So does the Yaris now compete more closely with its small car rivals such as the Volkswagen Polo, Ford Fiesta and Seat Ibiza? Keep reading on over the next few pages to find out.
