It looks like a good car for what it is. Does it offer a better VALUE than the other cars they tested? Sure. But is this a VALUE award? No.

The last line of their article is interesting... "We got your letter, Hyundai. We heart you, too." How much cash was in that envelope?
That was a really good impersonation of our president in that second paragraph

That aside, I do think part of this award is VALUE for the enthusiast - who cares about giving awards to a car if only 5 people can buy it? It won't do jack for the performance car enthusiasts. Something that people can reasonably afford like the N or C8? Way more impact, I'd say.
