- Audi A6 2.0 TFSI Hybrid
- BMW 530d SE auto
- Lexus GS 300h Luxury
Our selection is a mixed bag of hybrid and diesel with a wide variety of P11D values. The E-Class looks good value.
GS 300h £37,440
Tax and CO2
The new Lexus hybrid runs the E-Class close for CO2 emissions. Standard diesel 530d and A6 hybrid are well adrift.
GS 300h 113g/km/14%
As the E-Class burns diesel more frugally than the GS 300, it proves the cheapest for fuel costs, of course, based on official mpg.
GS 300h 10.34ppm/£8,272
A strong residual value for the E-Class as well as lower fuel costs give it a decisive win when looking at all running costs.
GS 300h 51.11ppm/£40,888
The E300 is a little less expensive to lease than a 530d. Data from www.comparecontracthire.com.

530d £545 (BMW)
GS 300h £596 (Days)
A6 £651 (Days)
Facelifted after just a few months on sale, the E300 Bluetec Hybrid seems to fend off the attack successfully from petrol-electric hybrids and traditional diesel.
