The Chevrolet Cruze has been voted the 'Urban Car of the Year' by the Emerging Diversity Education Fund and Decisive Media.

Editors at Decisive Auto magazine, along with a panel of 15 independent automotive journalists, selected 2010's winning automobiles for being the most stylish, practical, and attainable.  All winning vehicles will be featured in Decisive Auto magazine.

The winners of Urban Vehicle of the Year awards will be presented with the awards during the 15th Annual Urban Wheel Awards, scheduled to be held on Jan 9, 2011 at Detroit.
