2012 Hyundai Veloster Named "Urban Car of the Year"

To say that the 2012 Hyundai Veloster hit the ground running would be a serious understatement. In its short time since arriving at Gurley Leep Hyundai, the all-new, three-door coupe has wowed drivers in the greater Mishawaka area and beyond with its wide range of technological features, as well as the crowd at SEMA with two aftermarket-tuned variants. Now, the Veloster is being praised by Decisive Magazine, who just awarded it with their "Urban Car of the Year" award.

While there's no one defining feature that makes for a good urban car, there are a number of aspects, such as fuel economy, price, maneuverability, and design that factor into the decision. Check the at-a-glance details below, and you'll see why the Veloster was the clear winner.
