Kia K900 & Ford F150 Win URBAN VEHICLES OF THE YEAR‏

2015 URBAN VEHICLES OF THE YEAR ANNOUNCED

Kia K900, Ford F150 & BMW i8

 

Decisive magazine has announced “The 2015 Urban Vehicles of the Year” for the 19th Annual Urban Wheel Awards (UWA), the “Official Multicultural Event” of the North American International Auto Show.

 

The Urban Wheel Awards judging panel determined the most stylish, and practical new vehicles for 2015 by driving and evaluating dozens of cars and trucks in a variety of North American urban settings.

 

The 2015 Urban Vehicles of the Year winners are:

Urban Car of the Year: Kia K900

Runners-up: Mercedes C Class and Hyundai Genesis

 

According to Urban Wheel Awards juror and automotive expert Les Jackson, Cruise Control Radio: “The 2015 Kia K900 has an understated elegance that speaks of the owner being a savvy, trendy professional.”

 

Urban Truck of the Year: Ford F150

Runners-up: Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln MKC

 

Mary Chapman of Chapman Communications, an Urban Wheel Awards juror and freelance automotive reviewer, said of the Ford F150: “potentially revolutionary use of aluminum … substantial weight loss … great mileage.”

 

Urban Green Vehicle of the Year: BMW i8

Runners-up: Kia Soul EV and Ford Focus Electric

 

Decisive magazine editor Brian Armstead had a few words to lead the charge: “When BMW enters the game, watch out!  Not only is the BMW i8 “green,” it’s a BMW, with amazing acceleration, fuel efficiency and “Ultimate Driving Machine” road manners.”

The multicultural/multi-gender Urban Vehicles of the Year judging panel is comprised of some of the most notable and respected automotive reviewers in the country.

Last year, UWA launched its first “People’s Choice Vehicle of the Year,” receiving over 19,000 votes from the public through social media and gave away a new Hyundai Sonata.  This year’s voting begins soon.

 

The “Urban Vehicles of the Year” will be honored at the 19th Annual Urban Wheel Awards on Sunday, January 11, 2015, at the Garden Theater in Detroit, Michigan.
