Should I buy an eco car?

Is it worth getting a hybrid car? I'm 67, retired and live on the coast. Most of our journeys are local but occasionally we drive further afield.

There are lots of very good hybrids on the market. The Toyota Corolla is one of the best on sale right now. It's smooth, comfortable and well-equipped:

I'd also recommend the Lexus NX:

High quality and impressively refined. Luxurious feel to interior. Usefully large boot. Cheaper entry-level model with 2WD. Relaxing to drive in traffic.
Far better to drive than the Auris. Hybrid models are very efficient. Interior feels upmarket. Plenty of equipment as standard.
