Looking for New Family Car? Here are the Most Economical Hybrids on the Market
Drivers are becoming increasingly concerned about the exhaust fumes that come out of their diesel-powered cars but they don’t necessarily want to spend a ton of money on buying a fully-electric car.
Diesel cars offer good fuel economy and attractive tax benefits that most electric or petrol vehicles don’t. But don’t worry, now you can combine environmental sustainability of an electric car with the economy of the diesel variety in the form of a hybrid car.
With the auto industry moving towards a sustainable future, customers have more car choices than ever which combine a diesel or petrol engine with an electrically-powered motor.
Buyers looking for cars for families can find hybrids in the form of hatchbacks, SUVs, MPVs and saloons. But if you don’t need a bigger car, there are several smaller hybrids to choose from as well.
Here is your buying guide for finding the best deal on self-charging hybrid cars.

Price from £17,895
If you live close to the city center or don’t need to travel far, you don’t necessarily need a bigger vehicle for transportation.
Having a compact car like Toyota Yaris can have plenty of advantages.
This hybrid car is efficient in cutting and thrusting on congested urban roads due to its small size, but there is still plenty of room to seat four passengers comfortably, making it an ideal hybrid for a small family.
