Top Hybrid Sedans for 2023

5 minute read

By John Warbuck

Whether you’re someone who wants to reduce their carbon footprint or you’re concerned about rising gas prices, hybrid sedans can reduce your emissions and take you farther than ever on a tank of gas. There was once a point where you needed to make sacrifices to own a hybrid. That time has long passed with hybrid options that are loaded with technology at attractive price points.

Whether your priority is safety, fuel economy, or comfort, there are plenty of vehicles to consider. Here are some of the top-rated vehicles in the hybrid sedan segment this year.

Toyota Camry Hybrid

At a starting MSRP of $28,355, the Toyota Camry Hybrid is surprisingly affordable. What’s even more impressive is the number of features you get off the bat before looking into optional upgrades. Recent changes to the Camry over the last few years have brought Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa to its standard infotainment system, allowing you to safely access the tech without taking your hands off the wheel.

Depending on how you drive it, you can get up to 53 mpg on the highway and 51 mpg in the city, which is a huge relief amid rising gas prices.

Hyundai Elantra Hybrid

The Hyundai Elantra Hybrid won North American Car of the Year in 2021, and the 2023 model raises the bar. It starts at only $24,400 and doesn’t look anything like you’d think a sedan would. It’s sleek and stylish while offering up to 56 mpg on the highway.

Comfort features include an infotainment center that connects to Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, heated seats, premium sound, a key that locks and unlocks the car from your cellphone and push-button start.

Honda Accord Hybrid

The Honda Accord Hybrid has a starting price of $26,520 and received the Top Pick for Hybrid and Electric Cars from U.S. News & World Report. It’s a great choice if you want a sportier driving experience because it has a rather powerful engine for a hybrid.

It offers plenty of comfort and safety options, such as a system that allows you to unlock and start the vehicle as long as the key is in your pocket. If you need to charge your cellphone or other wireless devices, the standard two USB ports will do the trick.

Lexus ES Hybrid

The new Lexus ES Hybrid is absolutely stunning and offers performance to match its visual appeal. At a starting price of $43,690, it’s worth the price tag with an impressive number of standard features. The standard all-wheel drive is useful if you live somewhere that sees a lot of snow.

The interior is roomy, quiet, and made from only the best materials. An added plus is that the ES holds its value, so you won’t need to worry about depreciation as much when it comes time to sell it.

Hyundai Sonata Hybrid

The 2023 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is redesigned, and it’s gorgeous. Like many of the other hybrids on our list, it doesn’t feel or look like a hybrid. Starting at $27,950, it comes with plenty of standard features to provide excellent value.

The best new features are improved voice recognition technology, a remote parking assistant that can park your car for you, improved fuel economy, and more standard safety technologies.

Toyota Prius

If gas mileage is a priority, you absolutely need to consider the Toyota Prius, which has set the standard for fuel economy. The 2023 model has sharp lines to improve its look and gives you 58 mpg in the city. It starts at just $27,450, and you won’t feel shortchanged with all its standard features.

It can detect pedestrians and bicyclists to activate the brakes automatically, alert you when someone’s in your blind spot and connect with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Amazon Alexa to keep your focus on the road.

BMW 5 Series Hybrid

The BMW 5 Series offers a quiet and comfortable ride and a massive selection of high-tech options to choose from. It starts at $57,600 and comes with an 80,000-mile warranty on the battery and hybrid engine with an included maintenance plan for three years.

Depending on how you drive it, you could get up to 70 mpg equivalent, which may justify the price bump from cheaper options.

Toyota Corolla Hybrid

The Toyota Corolla Hybrid is an excellent budget option. Starting at $22,800, the 2023 model comes with a price that’s hard to beat. The vehicle offers standard tech features and noteworthy fuel economy. There’s even an all-wheel drive option.

“Beginning with the 2023 model year,” Consumer Reports says, “hybrid buyers have more choices for trims, and can now pick the more luxurious XLE model as well as the SE, and base LE.” So, your Corolla Hybrid doesn’t have to be bare bones.

Toyota Crown

Replacing the Toyota Avalon, the Toyota Crown is new to the hybrid scene. The Avalon was retired at the end of 2022, but Toyota’s latest vehicle appears to be a worthy alternative. It has a starting price of $39,950.

The Toyota Crown really stands out aesthetically. For instance, it combines the styling of a luxury sedan with the body of a sports car. So, it looks incredible. While it’s in its first year of production, it looks like it’s here to stay.

The Bottom Line

Hybrid sedans have come a long way over the last few years. While consumers may have had to make compromises in the past, the current lineup of hybrid sedans is just as attractive as today’s traditional sedans. And prices have even moved closer together.

As you comparison shop to find the right hybrid sedan for your needs, there are a few makes and models to keep in mind. To recap, Toyota, Hyundai, Honda, Lexus, and BMW all have hybrid sedans that stand out from the pack in 2023.
