Car reviews and road tests
The Jaguar I-PACE offers zero emissions, a dynamic driving experience, a great-looking and practical body style, and of course performance – so is this the ultimate all-round green driver’s car?
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has been revised for 2019 and it’s now more economical thanks to a larger battery and new petrol engine – and it’s also better to drive.
The Hyundai KONA Electric is a game changer: it offers a 300 mile electric range for £30,000 – and it’s excellent to drive.
The BMW i8 has received a range of mid-life tweaks, and it remains the only car on sale that looks and drives like a supercar, can cover 34 miles on electric power, and has an official fuel economy figure of 150mpg.
The Range Rover Si4 P400e PHEV is a 100mpg Range Rover: it can drive on zero tailpipe emission electric power for up to 31 miles, and it can still drive up a mountain…
The Kia Stinger 2.2 CRDi GT-Line S combines a fantastic driving experience with comfort, space and good economy on long journeys.
The Kia Niro Plug-in Hybrid is very efficient, with the potential of low running costs, it has a practical body style, and is relatively affordable.
The Jaguar E-PACE is a more compact version of the F-PACE, and in diesel manual front-wheel drive form, delivers an economical – and a comfortable – driving experience on long journeys.
The MINI Hatch has had a mid-life refresh; there’s not a huge amount of change, but perhaps that doesn’t matter, as this was a fun and efficient car anyway.
The BMW X2 is a lower and sportier version of the X1, and even in all-wheel drive xDrive form, the 2-litre diesel model is reasonably efficient in life-world driving.
