The Toyota Yaris Hybrid compete with Honda’s Hybrid and a host of diesel when it goes on sale summer.

Impressively, Toyota has to package the hybrid powertrain the car without sacrificing any interior This has been achieved by the nose by 20mm, downsizing the from the 1.8-litre unit in the to 1.5 litres, and engineering a lighter, compact hybrid system.

Toyota hasn’t announced yet, but looking at the difference the regular Auris and its hybrid a minimum purchase price of seems likely.

What’s it to drive? The electric motor can the car without the help of the engine for over a mile and it provides welcome extra thrust from rest. However, the Hybrid is generally a sluggish offering inferior acceleration to the Yaris 1.4 D-4D diesel and petrol model.

Unless Toyota prices the Hybrid to undercut its diesel – which seems very – it will be impossible to recommend.
