The Yaris supermini features the Japanese brand's tried-and-tested "self-charging" hybrid technology, similar to what you'll find in the pioneering Prius. The hybrid powertrain is excellent around town, when it'll often run on electric power alone – which is very good news indeed for real-world fuel-economy and emissions figures.

We returned around 65mpg during our test, with the figure improving around town as electrification did its work. A pair of driving modes are offered to help make the most of this – EV and Eco – with the latter letting the petrol engine cut in only when needed most. This frugal character makes the Toyota a great city-car choice, although it's not exempt from the London Congestion Charge or similar schemes elsewhere.

Toyota Yaris Hybrid MPG & CO2 emissions

Toyota claims average fuel economy of 57-69mpg, and our test figures seem to confirm that these numbers are entirely realistic. That's good news for supermini buyers looking for diesel-esque economy from an electrified, non-plug-in small car. There are plenty of pure-electric rivals – like the Honda e and MINI Electric – to choose from for fuel-free running, but the majority of these cost at least £10,000 more than the Yaris to buy.

CO2 emissions of 92-112g/km are low enough to ensure palatable Benefit-in-Kind company-car tax rates and lowish first-year road tax, but if the fact remains that even a larger plug-in hybrid will boast much lower emissions on average. For context, the Renault Clio E-TECH hybrid emits 98-99g/km of CO2.
