Hyundai Impresses Experts in J.D. Power APEAL Study

J.D. Power APEAL study

As Hyundai continues to produce the kind of vehicles customers really want to drive and own, the experts continue to take notice. The brand ranked highest in the J.D. Power APEAL study among non-premium brands. On top of that, the 2014 Accent topped the small car segment with its winning “apeal.”

APEAL aptly stands for Automotive Performance, Execution, and Layout.

Distinguished as the top brand in this study, it is the first time a brand has taken the top spot in both J.D. Power’s APEAL study and the Initial Quality Study (IQS). Compared to both premium and non-premium brands, Hyundai moved up five places to the lucky number 13 position.

Vehicles are ranked based on their scores in performance, comfort, features and instrumentation, style, and overall performance, which, combined, could fall anywhere between 0 (downright repulsive) and 1,000 (perfection). The Accent impressed in each category to win among competitors in the small car class.

“We are so pleased to see the recognition that Accent has received in this year’s J.D. Power APEAL study,” said Mike O’Brien, vice president of corporate and product planning for Hyundai Motor America. “And it’s especially gratifying coming on the heels of our best-ever IQS showing just one month ago.”
