Initial Quality Winners
Korean car companies continue to be standouts in terms of quality — for the second consecutive year, Genesis, Kia and Hyundai are the three highest-ranking car brands in the annual J.D Power U.S. Initial Quality Study. For five years in a row Kia has topped the mass-market brands. Global marketing information services company J.D. Power has been conducting this important auto industry study for more than 25 years. An automaker’s initial quality ranking is based on the number of problems experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100). A lower IQS score indicates higher quality. The study is based on responses from 76,256 purchasers and lessees of new 2019 model-year vehicles, surveyed after 90 days of ownership.
