I have heard the term "Villa Urquiza style" first time about four
years ago. Ever since I have puzzled what does it mean. Can someone
describe the defining features?

Here are three examples labeled Villa Urquiza style from YouTube:

Javier and Andrea: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HFUj0Y_DzE
Alberto and Elba: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orgGazxNz64
Jorge and La Turca: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ucLFoUHcp-g

What do these couples have in common? Is it embrace? Steps?
Embelishments? Musicality?

How is it different from this style, labelled Tango Milonguero:

Or this "milonguero style" by the same Alberto Dassieu:
