Top 10: Hybrids

Toyota Yaris, Renault Clio, Range Rover Sport P460e, Kia Niro, Honda Civic, Lexus NX, Hyundai Tucson, Audi A3 40 TFSIe and more are our Top 10 hybrids

The Dacia Jogger Hybrid unites two electric motors and a combustion engine. In addition, it does not need to be plugged in. The Jogger Hybrid’s battery recharges itself when the driver decelerates or brakes. Its smart automatic gearbox is combined with an energy management system that optimises the vehicle’s performance and consumption.

The Honda Jazz is built with the latest in-car technology, entertainment system and connectivity, designed to keep the driver and passengers better connected on the road. The car also boasts various safety features, from SENSING safety array advanced driver assistance technologies.

With an infotainment touchscreen and integrated driver display the Tucson also comes with a redesigned front grille, front skid plates, restyled headlights and a new alloy-wheel design. 

In 2022, the Tucson was the best-selling compact SUV in Europe, beating its rivals, the Volkswagen Tiguan, Toyota RAV4 and Ford Kuga.

7. Kia Niro​​​​​​​

The Niro range is a part of Kia’s hybrid family car range. In a testament to Kia’s ongoing commitment to sustainability, the Niro’s seats are made from recycled materials - ranging from cloth to artificial leather, with a drop of eucalyptus wood. Yet due to its popularity, the Niro Plug-In Hybrid is currently unavailable to order. 

The future is here with the Honda Civic hybrid experience - which can run silently on electric power and never needs to be plugged in as the car doesn’t need a mains electricity supply because it creates energy when braking and returns it to the hybrid battery. 

For the Lexus NX, drivers can choose either self-charging or plug-in hybrid. The NX has a four-cylinder 2.5-litre hybrid engine and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery with 18.1 kWh. 

Rear electric motor enables full-time all-wheel drive and 0-62mph in 6 seconds, with an EV driving range of 40 miles.

Combining a practical, five-door hatchback design with plug-in hybrid economy, the Audi A3 Sportback TFSI e offers the best of both worlds. With the 40 trim offering an output of 204hp, on a full charge the A3 can travel up to 40 miles in fully electric mode, with the petrol acting as a backup to prevent range anxiety.

Producing 460hp and capable of accelerating from 0-60mph in just 5.4 seconds, the Range Rover Sport P460e combines performance with increased efficiency thanks to a hybrid powertrain.

With a certified electric range of up to 76 miles and rapid DC charging, the P460e engine combines a 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine with a 160 kW electric motor.

Clio E-Tech full hybrid combines two electric motors and a petrol engine. The multimode automatic gearbox prioritises fully electric driving and activates the internal combustion engine when called upon by the driving conditions.

The battery recharges during deceleration and braking. This also allows drivers to achieve efficient driving with up to 67.3mpg and as little as 96g/km.

In 2012, the Toyota Yaris became the UK and Europe’s first hybrid electric small hatchback. Today, it is still very much the leader in its class.

Introduced in 2020, the efficiency of the current Yaris Hybrid range’s hybrid electric powertrain is central to its affordability. The Yaris is able to switch to all-electric EV mode at speeds of up to 80mph and for longer periods in urban traffic, enabling drivers to enjoy many of the benefits of a battery electric vehicle, but with the flexibility provided by self-charging hybrid power.
