Which hybrid car is best in 2020?

We currently have a nine-year-old Range Rover, which we use to tow our caravan. We are selling both, but we would like to replace the car with something that is more eco-friendly and economical to run. We mostly drive locally and the new car will need to carry our two dogs. Can you recommend a hybrid car that is suitable for our needs?

If your driving locally will be mainly short runs of less than 10 miles then better to get a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle such as a Mitsubishi Outlander or the forthcoming Peugeot 3008 Hybrid4 than a self-charging hybrid such as a Toyota RAV-4 or Honda CR-V hybrid. If you will regularly be driving distances, then better the self-charging hybrid.
