Speed Highway is a great example of an urban setting.

The Urban theme is a stage theme in the Sonic the Hedgehog series.

Urban stages feature the player in modern cities, often running across streets and rooftops. Many streets are unrealistically convoluted and have unbelievably sharp turns. Urban-themed levels typically focus more on speed than platforming or exploration and tend to be greatest showcase of the game's speed, which in turn makes them widely popular.

Initally being used to a minimum in the Classic era, the Urban theme became a rampant and often used theme from Sonic Adventure onward, with virtually every game to follow, including spin offs, including an urban themed stage.

Typical elements found in urban stages include cars, rockets, breakable windows, and long moments of high speed.
