Hyundai's midsize sedan has always been one of the best-looking cars in the class. A redesign for 2015 means revised styling, but is it enough to keep the Sonata looking fresher than its competitors?

The Sonata's trapezoidal grille and chrome trim along the sides of the hood return for 2015, as does its sleek, coupelike rear roofline. New this year is a more upright nose, which gives the sedan an aggressive look.

2015 Hyundai Sonata: Up Close

SonataUC1

When the prior-generation Sonata debuted as a 2011 model it made waves with a daring design that challenged conservatively styled competitors. Fast-forward a few years and Hyundai has a new Sonata and the 2015 Sonata is unlikely to create the kind of stir its predecessor did. The new sedan is handsome, but there's enough of the old version that casual observers could easily confuse them.

The 2015 Sonata retains its distinctive coupe-like profile, and it seems even more pronounced now as the rear roof pillars extend nearly to the tail. This makes for a very short trunklid, and also makes the rear-quarter angle one of the car's best.

Although new cars offer the latest design, tech and safety features, shoppers buy more of their used counterparts: about 2.7 used cars for every new car sold in 2013, according to CNW Marketing Research. It's hard to blame shoppers. The average new car sells for around $30,000. By contrast, the average used car sold in early January 2014 for $10,843 at franchised dealerships (e.g., Bob's Honda) and $9,513 at independent dealerships (e.g., Bob's Used Cars), according to CNW.

Hyundai Announces 2014 Sonata Hybrid Pricing

2014HyundaiSonataHybrid

The 2014 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid will start at $26,810 for the base model and $31,560 for the Sonata Hybrid Limited, both including an $810 destination charge. Prices are only up slightly compared to the 2013 model, but the 2014 version adds more standard features.

2014 Hyundai Sonata: What's Changed

Both versions of the Sonata Hybrid use last year's 35-kilowatt electric motor and 47-kilowatt lithium-ion battery pack, powering a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that’s good for 199 horsepower and an electric-only top speed of 74 mph; the engine pairs with a six-speed automatic transmission. The hybrid drivetrain uses all-electric mode during less strenuous driving and the gas engine for startup and more demanding conditions, enabling an EPA-estimated 36/40 mpg city/highway for both models, unchanged from the 2013 version.

2011ToyotaCamry

Among midsize and large cars, the Toyota Camry and Chevrolet Impala proved most popular among thieves, according to a new report from the crime-stats crunchers at the National Insurance Crime Bureau in Des Plaines, Ill. The report is based on National Crime Information Center vehicle-theft records for a period spanning Jan. 1, 2009, through Dec. 31, 2012, and limited to the 2010, 2011 and 2012 model years. Researchers culled the top 10 list from the 16 makes and 20 models of the midsize class, and the nine makes and 10 models of the large-vehicle class.

During the counting period, a total of 31,586 vehicles were stolen from both car classes combined, with the midsize group comprising the vast majority, with 22,090 thefts, or 70 percent.

The top 10 large/midsize vehicle thefts by make and model are:

2013 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Cars.com Review

2014HyundaiSonataHybrid

When it comes to driving a hybrid, perhaps the highest compliment one can pay is how un-hybrid-like it is — until it comes time to pay at the pump. Then, of course, "hybrid-like" goes from pejorative to preferable in a single fill-up. Cars.com reviewer Kristin Varela is pleased to report that the 2013 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid blurs the line between gas and hybrid driving dynamics while clearly defining itself as the latter where fuel economy's concerned. Read Varela’s review below.
