The 2014 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is without a doubt one of the best midsize sedans on the market, offering excellent fuel economy, plenty of power and one of the most innovative exterior designs in a long time. Its cabin can be easily described as a work of art thanks to its phenomenal appearance, user-friendly controls and heaps of options when it comes to special features.

With the 2014 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, you get one of the most good-looking, fuel efficient and affordable midsize sedan – that can easily compete with the likes of Honda Accord and Ford Fusion. Sonata has managed to go from imitator to innovator in a matter of years, now inspiring nearly every sedan on the market. In fact, even the base Nissan Altima should feel threatened by the most recent iteration of the Sonata.

The biggest example of this car's originality stems from its exterior. With features like a deeply sculpted hood and well-placed chrome to highlight the beltline, the Sonata Hybrid feels like a tribute to a time when car designers took more risks than they do now. The grille is endowed with beautiful details, with sweptback headlights on each side adding a touch of elegance. In the meantime, its high beltline and sharply angled back window endow the new Sonata with the kind of presence that few cars can match. Some of the features you'll find here include 16-inch alloy wheels on the GLS trim, 18-inch split-spoke alloy wheels on the 2.0T and panoramic moonroof on the Limited model.

Once you make your way inside, you'll find yourself within something that can be comfortably described as a work of art. So, in case you were wondering, the Sonata Hybrid's cabin is as good, if not better, as the exterior. You'll find the same aggressive shapes and slick curves as on the outside, complemented quite nicely by striking blue backlighting. Some of the features include heated back seats, eight-inch touchscreen and Blind Spot Detection. If there's one issue with this cabin, it would be the loss of the "sitting man" shape of the ventilation controls, if you decide to upgrade to the navigation system.

Under the hood, the hybrid version of the Sonata carries a single electric motor that sits between a 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine and six-speed automatic transmission, while a lithium-polymer battery stores excess energy. This is in fact a full hybrid, which means that you can drive it at low speeds on electric power alone. The four-cylinder that you get here can produce 206 horsepower and 154 pound-feet of torque – fantastic numbers for a hybrid car.

The fuel economy you get in return is quite staggering too. With the EPA ratings of 6.7 litres per 100 kilometres in the city and 5.9 litres per 100 kilometres on the highway, you'll save more money on this sedan than on any of its rivals.

One of the bigger complaints about the previous Sonata models was that they don't handle that well. Luckily, the 2014 Sonata aims to fix that by offering three modes for the electric power steering as well as retuned suspension and more sound insulation to keep the noise out.

Overall, the 2014 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is an excellent package that is well worth the $28,249 asking price. It looks good, it offers superb fuel economy and it's powerful enough to satisfy any driver out there. It's the perfect example of how far the Korean car market has progressed. We highly recommend taking this sedan for a drive.

Power and Performance:

The variable-valve-timed (VVT) 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) gasoline engine is expected to once again combine with a 35-kilowatt electric motor for 199 total hp, while 154 lb-ft of torque also returns from last year. All this oomph is managed via the returning 6-speed shiftable automatic transmission to the tune of 36 mpg city/40 highway in both Sonata Hybrid trims, though the Limited’s weightier frame drops its mpg average just a notch. Regenerative braking, meanwhile, continues to help recharge the 47-hp electric motor, while auto stop/start technology keeps fuel wastage to a minimum in stop-and-go situations.

Interiors and Special Features:

Like its dynamic exterior, the 2014 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid's interior is a work of art. Following the exterior design theme, the Sonata's interior is a mix of bold shapes, smooth finishes and lots of attractive blue backlighting. Features such as the Limited trim's heated rear seat are practically unheard of in other competitors. However, while we do like the look of the rakish rear pillars, the design somewhat cuts into rear-seat headroom. We also lament the loss of the cool "sitting man" control panel for the ventilation controls when upgrading to the navigation system.

Safety features:

The 2014 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid comes with standard stability control, 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, active front head restraints and six airbags (front, front-side, full-length side curtain).

In government crash-testing, the Sonata received a perfect 5-star overall rating, including five stars in every category except frontal protection, for which it received four stars. The independent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded the Sonata its highest rating of Good in all crash tests except the new small overlap frontal-offset test, in which a Marginal rating (second worst of four) was assessed.
