Madrid, November 30, 2011
Hyundai Veloster has been elected "Car ELLE 2012" in the seventeenth Edition of the prestigious "CAR & DRIVER" award prize. It is awarded by prestigious and leader fashion magazine ELLE, which responds to the attributes that it represents style, fashion and beauty and that emphasizes the strengths of our model in terms of design, trends and new technologies.
The Hyundai Veloster is a car that represents the philosophy of Hyundai "New Thinking, New Possibilities" and the new "Fluidic sculpture" design language.
Car and Driver is one of the most influential automotive magazines in Spain, and is a leading source of information for auto enthusiasts/influencers and in-market car buyers, providing thorough evaluations and road tests across all segments of vehicles, as well as information on technology, motorsports, gear, and industry news
In our local market these awards are seen as a benchmark in the motor trade. The Hyundai Veloster was mostly voted from the readers of Car & Driver and Elle overwhelming other candidates such as the Audi Q3, Citroen DS3, Mini Coupe, Nissan Juke, VW Golf Cabrio, etc.
"HMES feels really proud that the readers of the magazines of the Hearst group have chosen the Veloster as "Car Elle 2012". This clearly demonstrates our design trend, technology and lifestyle within our new models", said Diego Gutierrez Colomer, Managing Director of Hyundai.
Hyundai achieved for the first time the prize "CAR & DRIVER" in the year 2000 with its model Coupe to the "Best Youth Car".
