Hybrid car reviews

Lexus NX300h review

The Lexus NX has received a refresh, keeping the striking mid-sized SUV in the minds of buyers - or so the Japanese brand hopes. Styling tweaks, improved equipment, and a focus on hybrid power are the main changes to what was a characterful model before....

Toyota C-HR 1.8 Hybrid review

In a market that is increasingly crowded, Toyota's C-HR manages to stand out. The striking styling is the most immediate attribute that makes on-lookers turn their heads to take in the crossover. It's not all about the design though, since the C-HR is one...

Lexus IS 300h review

For a while now, the Lexus IS has been an alternative choice for compact executive saloon buyers. Since it has been around, the traditional German choices from BMW, Audi, and Mercedes have topped the pecking order, while Jaguar's XF has come along and gone...

Suzuki Ignis SHVS review

Suzuki is quite the specialist in doing things its own way. With a strength in producing compact, off-road-style cars, the Japanese brand tries to bring models into its field of expertise. Hence even crossovers are given the Suzuki treatment - creating the...

The Lexus RC is one of the best looking coupe's on the market, offering a far more striking product than those available from the likes of BMW, Audi, and Mercedes. It's worth remembering that a significant attribute for a coupe is style, so it's certainly...

Toyota C-HR Hybrid review

The C-HR is a very important model for Toyota, with the company's hybrid powertrain from its Prius installed into a crossover body. The resulting C-HR is supposed to appeal to a younger set of customers, tempting them into Toyota's hybrid model line-up,...

Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Excel review

Toyota's bigger RAV4 is now available as a hybrid for the first time which is a surprise as more than a fifth of Toyota's UK sales are already hybrid. Despite its space, practicality and guaranteed reliability, it's hard to recommend the Hybrid over diesel...

Kia Niro review

There are two main ways of going about designing a hybrid. You can take the efficiency above all else template which tends to make oddly styled machines that are a triumph of function over form. The Toyota Prius is in this category, but at least the current...
