J.D. Power APEAL Study
Granted, it’s difficult to pinpoint exactly why consumers love certain new cars, although for more than 25 years global research and analytics firm J.D. Power has been developing a formula to determine which vehicles have the most desirable characteristics among new-car purchasers. The firm calls it the J.D. Power APEAL awards, which stands for Automotive Performance, Execution And Layout. Ratings are based on consumer evaluations of 2020 model-year vehicles in the first 90 days of ownership across 37 attributes, which are factored into an overall APEAL score measured on a 1,000-point scale to determine the most loved new cars of 2021.
