Hyundai and Range Rover were in the center of attention today in Detroit

We don't really know if it's a big surprise or not, but you should know that winning entries for the 2012 North American Car and Truck of the year category are the Hyundai Elantra and the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque. This information was released today.
For each category, 50 automotive journalists from the US and Canada had the difficult job of judging the models. After the award received back in 2009 with the Genesis, Hyundai wins once more, beating the Passat and the Focus. At the truck of the year category, the finalists were SUV and crossover models and here is where Land Rover made sure it gets its first ever win in the event. The other two finalists were the Honda CR-V and the BMW X3. The winners from last year are the Chevrolet Volt and the Ford Explorer. The models mentioned above were the most appreciated ones of all.
