DETROITThe 2012 Hyundai Elantra was named 2012 North American Car of the Year by a jury of 50 independent North American automotive journalists. The judges evaluated each of the new cars introduced last year and chose the 2012 Hyundai Elantra as the winner.

The award was announced at a news conference at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

“Elantra speaks to the success of our recipe of bold design and great fuel economy,” said John Krafcik, president and CEO of Hyundai Motor America. “In a year with some truly breakthrough competitors, we are honored that the jury recognizes Elantra’s far-reaching impact on the industry.”

The judges considered more than 50 new vehicles before selecting the top three cars and top three trucks. The Volkswagen Passat and Ford Focus were the other top car finalists.

    I have a 2011 Elantra and I love it. It is great to know Hyundai is doing so well. This is, infact, the 5th Hyundai I have owned. They are great little cars!
