Car reviews and road tests
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 Dacia Duster offers a lot of car for the £13,000 price tag, and despite having a 4×4-style body with a 1.6-litre petrol engine, it proved to be surprisingly economical, matching its WLTP economy figure in real-world driving.
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.
The Volvo S90 T8 Twin Engine offers an amazingly refined and comfortable motorway driving experience, with the potential of decent economy, and also excellent performance.
The Lexus RC 300h F Sport aims to combine a rear-wheel drive coupe with an efficient hybrid powertrain; two of the results that it delivers are an official economy figure of 56.5mpg and CO2 emissions of just 116g/km.
