The 2012 Hyundai Azera, 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo all earned GOOD DESIGN™ Awards in the Transportation category for their innovative and unique designs. The prestigious GOOD DESIGN Awards are presented annually by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design together with The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.

Founded in Chicago in 1950, GOOD DESIGN bestows international recognition upon the world's most prominent designers and manufacturers for advancing new, visionary, and innovative product concepts, invention and originality, and for stretching the envelope beyond what is considered ordinary product and consumer design.

For 2012, The GOOD DESIGN Awards were judged in New York by an international jury of design professionals, architects, experts, and cultural leaders. The jury selected more than 700 product designs and graphics from more than 38 nations.

“At Hyundai, we want to show consumers that high style, fuel efficiency and affordable pricing can all be found in one vehicle,” said Chris Chapman, chief designer, Hyundai Design Center. “Azera, Santa Fe Sport and Veloster Turbo all stand out from the crowd with stylish yet functional design. We’re honored that GOOD DESIGN is recognizing the beautiful design and unique personality of these cars.”

Azera’s design takes inspiration from the mechanics of flight. It’s empowered by Hyundai’s design concept known as “Grand Glide.” The grandeur of the Azera and its beautiful design distinguishes it from other full-size sedans. The exterior of the all-new Azera is long, light and low and the unique, undulating beltline allows for a long, sleek roofline accented by the third window and wraparound LED taillights. The Azera separates itself from competition by combining luxury features with advanced technologies and bold design philosophies.

The all-new Hyundai Santa Fe Sport adopts its own design concept called “Storm Edge,” which captures the strong and dynamic images created by nature during the formation of a storm. Featuring sophisticated and refined lines, which are in harmony with its bold and voluminous surfaces, Santa Fe presents a more masculine and more aggressive SUV appearance than its predecessor.

Veloster Turbo’s playful, high-efficiency, and “own-it” attitude are all characteristics of the young demographic target, while offering a “modern premium” look and feel. Veloster Turbo bridges the gap between a versatile interior space and the strong appeal of a sports car, and is designed to bring added emotional appeal to the Hyundai brand, tailored to a younger generation. It offers progressive buyers a sleek and distinctive design in an innovative three-door coupe form that provides practicality and flexibility as well as driving pleasure.
