Toyota hybrid cars Discover the hybrid Toyota range and compare new, used, and leasing deals
Ever since the first Prius arrived in 1997, Toyota has made hybrid cars its ‘thing’. Sure, other firms - in fact most firms - offer a hybrid in their range, but almost every Toyota you can buy is offered with both a petrol engine and a battery/motor combination. Most of Toyotas hybrids are of the ‘self-charging’ variety, meaning the petrol engine, and energy recovered from braking, charge a small battery that can power the car at low speeds over short distances - perfect for town driving.

Toyota hybrid range: current models
Toyota Yaris Hybrid
The Yaris is a small hatchback that used to be offered with a petrol engine as well as in hybrid configuration, but is now hybrid only. That means you get a smooth, easy-to-drive petrol-electric powertrain, together with a convenient automatic gearbox and impressive economy of around 60mpg.
Toyota Yaris Cross
After a Yaris but want a slightly higher ride height? Make your way towards the Toyota Yaris Cross. It’s effectively the same car as the conventional Yaris, so you get the same 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine that’s paired with an electric motor and battery, together with a better view out of the road, and a larger boot.
The C-HR SUV may have been around for seven years or so, but its futuristic design has aged very nicely indeed, so it still looks fresh today. Toyota used to offer the C-HR (short for ‘coupe high rider’) with a 1.2-litre petrol engine, but this was discontinued not long after launch as almost everyone went for the smooth, efficient hybrid version.
Toyota RAV4 Hybrid
Need a bigger SUV? The RAV4 could be just the car for you. The best-selling car in the world in 2022, the RAV4 has a bullet-proof reputation for reliability, combined with a serious dose of practicality and an easy-going nature.
Toyota RAV4 PHEV
The RAV4 PHEV is the only plug-in hybrid model in Toyota’s range, with an electric-only range of up to 46 miles, and a fuel-sipping nature if you charge it up regularly enough. Offering all the space and refinement of the standard RAV4, the plug-in model is around £5,000 more than the self-charging hybrid.
Toyota Highlander Hybrid
Toyota’s biggest hybrid SUV, the seven-seat Highlander competes with cars like the Kia Sorento and Hyundai Santa Fe, and under the bonnet features a 2.5-litre petrol engine paired with two electric motors, one at each axle. Smooth, efficient and practical, the Toyota Highlander may not be the most exciting car to drive, but it sure ticks a lot of other boxes.
A popular sight on the road, the Corolla hybrid is a sharp-looking hatchback that’s cheap to run and offers a rewarding driving experience. Sure, there could be a little more space in the back, but the Corolla has a great reputation for reliability, and officially returns around 60mpg.
Toyota Corolla Touring Sports
After a Corolla but need a bit more space? Don’t be fooled by the dynamic name, the Corolla Touring Sports is effectively a Corolla estate, so you get all the benefits of the hatchback, together with a big 598-litre boot.
