Verdict Should I buy a Toyota Yaris Hybrid?

If you're not too fussed about driving pleasures, and are more concerned with fuel consumption, then yes, we can happily recommend the Toyota Yaris. We'd suggest going for cars with the 16-inch wheels as they have different suspension settings, which makes the Yaris more comfortable and a bit less sporting.

Models start from sub £20,000, and are being offered with 0% APR from launch. Team this with a five-year/100,000-mile warranty, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connection, and nearly 70mpg -  and it's tough to beat.

Saying that, the Ford Fiesta is better to drive, the Volkswagen Polo is palpably nicer inside, and the Renault Clio is more practical.
