In case you weren't aware, the Detroit Auto Show started today. Usefully, this coincide s with the announcement of the North American Car and Truck of the year.
From a list of 30 candidates, the assembled jurors which included Autoblog US's Chris Paukert, selected the Hyundai Elantra (which will be sold in the UK later this year as the i30) as top car and the Range Rover Evoque as top truck (SUV).
The Evoque was one of my top cars of 2011, so it's nice to see its talent recognised. Parent company Jaguar Land Rover must also be pleased, as it is the first time it has won this award in its third largest market.
See how James May got on with the Evoque, in a Top Gear adventure to Las Vegas below:
