The Yaris Cross features Toyota’s tried-and-tested 'self-charging' hybrid technology, which is the same powertrain as you’ll find in the Yaris supermini and the pioneering Prius hatchback. It's 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.

Toyota Yaris Cross hybrid MPG & CO2 emissions

Toyota claims the Yaris Cross is capable of returning up to 55mpg in all-wheel-drive form, while the front-drive versions can reach up to 64mpg. When we tested a front-drive version, it effortlessly cracked 60mpg after covering a mixture of B-roads and town driving.

A sizeable amount of time was spent driving on the electric motor alone, without any intervention from us telling the car when to switch from electric to petrol power. If you select Eco mode and are careful with the accelerator, we reckon you could easily achieve up to 80mpg.

Depending on exactly which trim level and drivetrain you go for, the Yaris Cross emits up to 117g/km of CO2. Unsurprisingly, that's slightly more than the smaller and lighter Yaris supermini manages, but the Yaris Cross is more efficient than some of its rivals, like the Hyundai Kona and Renault Captur hybrids.
