  1. Toyota Avalon Hybrid

    1. Toyota Avalon Hybrid

    What Edmunds.com says:
    With new features and a fresh look, the 2013 Toyota Avalon Hybrid should earn new respect as a top choice for a full-size hybrid sedan.

  2. Toyota Prius

    2. Toyota Prius

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2013 Toyota Prius continues to be the quintessential hybrid, though other newer hybrids are more desirable to drive.

  3. Toyota Camry Hybrid

    3. Toyota Camry Hybrid

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid is a solid hybrid family sedan thanks to improved fuel economy and enhanced driving dynamics.

  4. Ford Fusion Hybrid

    4. Ford Fusion Hybrid

    What Edmunds.com says:
    With added refinement and technology, the 2013 Fusion Hybrid could take Ford to the top of the class for hybrid sedans.

  5. Chevrolet Volt

    5. Chevrolet Volt

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2013 Chevy Volt provides the best all-electric range of any plug-in hybrid, plus gasoline-fueled peace of mind that all-electric competitors can't match. But it's pricey for what you get.

  6. Lexus ES 300h

    6. Lexus ES 300h

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2013 Lexus ES 300h represents a win-win combination of Toyota's fuel-sipping hybrid technology with Lexus' best-selling and greatly improved sedan.

  7. 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid

    7. Ford C-Max Hybrid

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid is an interesting alternative to compact crossovers, wagons, minivans and hybrids. Its fuel economy and refined driving manners make it especially appealing.

  8. Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid

    8. Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid

    What Edmunds.com says:
    If you just want a really nice Jetta that's completely normal to drive and happens to get about 45 mpg, you won't blink at the 2013 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid's hefty price tag.

  9. Infiniti M Hybrid

    9. Infiniti M Hybrid

    What Edmunds.com says:
    Among premium luxury sedans, the 2013 Infiniti M distinguishes itself with higher levels of athleticism, but they come at the price of a stiffer-than-normal ride quality.

  10. Audi Q5 Hybrid

    10. Audi Q5 Hybrid

    What Edmunds.com says:
    From exciting performance to excellent comfort and convenience, the 2013 Audi Q5's qualities give it broad appeal.

  11. BMW ActiveHybrid

    11. BMW ActiveHybrid

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2012 BMW ActiveHybrid 5 offers no significant fuel economy or acceleration benefit versus a 535i and costs significantly more. You'd be better off gluing a "Hybrid" badge onto a regular 5 Series.

  12. Lexus CT 200h

    12. Lexus CT 200h

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2013 Lexus CT 200h is pretty much unchanged. Last year's Premium trim level has become an option package.

  13. Hyundai Sonata Hybrid

    13. Hyundai Sonata Hybrid

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2012 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid seemingly has all the right stuff, but quirky driving dynamics keep it from being a top contender among fuel-efficient hybrid-powered family sedans.

  14. Lincoln MKZ Hybrid

    14. Lincoln MKZ Hybrid

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The redesigned 2013 Lincoln MKZ comes with plenty of modern features and a distinctive style. But other entry-level luxury sedans will likely prove to be more desirable overall.

  15. Lexus RX 450h

    15. Lexus RX 450h

    What Edmunds.com says:
    Though expensive compared to the non-hybrid RX, the 2013 Lexus RX 450h delivers on its promise of impressive fuel economy, utility, power and luxury.

  16. Kia Optima Hybrid

    16. Kia Optima Hybrid (Tie)

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2012 Kia Optima is one of our top picks for a midsize sedan. With evocative styling, a long list of features and enjoyable driving dynamics, it's easy to see why.

  17. Toyota Highlander Hybrid

    16. Toyota Highlander Hybrid (Tie)

    What Edmunds.com says:
    Combining seven-passenger seating with excellent fuel economy and performance, the 2013 Toyota Highlander Hybrid is a very appealing alternative to conventional crossovers.

  18. Acura ILX Hybrid

    18. Acura ILX Hybrid

    What Edmunds.com says:
    Excellent build quality, good fuel economy and palatable starting prices make the 2013 Acura ILX Hybrid an intriguing option for those who'd like a luxury car without the big payment.

  19. Honda CR-Z

    19. Honda CR-Z

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2012 Honda CR-Z isn't as sporty to drive as it looks and its two-seat interior limits its practicality. It's a fun city car, but in general we think there are better choices.

  20. Buick Regal Hybrid

    20. Buick Regal Hybrid (Tie)

    What Edmunds.com says:
    While appealing in many regards, the 2013 Buick Regal is ultimately bettered by a number of other sedans.

  21. Honda Civic Hybrid

    20. Honda Civic Hybrid (Tie)

    What Edmunds.com says:
    Just one year after the model's poorly received redesign, the 2013 Honda Civic Hybrid benefits from a significant refresh that should help restore its luster in the competitive compact-car category.

  22. Honda Insight

    22. Honda Insight

    What Edmunds.com says:
    While fuel-efficient and reliable, the 2013 Honda Insight doesn't measure up to its archrival, the Toyota Prius.

  23. Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid

    23. Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The redesigned 2013 Chevy Malibu is a solid choice for a family sedan, but we suggest considering the late-introduction 2.5-liter or turbo models instead of snapping up the Eco model that debuted first.
