Best Owner Experience
It’s difficult to pinpoint exactly why consumers love certain new cars, but over the last 23 years, global research and analytics firm J.D. Power has developed a formula to determine which vehicles have the most desirable characteristics among new-car purchasers. The firm calls it the APEAL awards, which stands for Automotive Performance, Execution And Layout. Ratings are based on consumer evaluations of their 2018 model-year vehicles in the first 90 days of ownership across 77 attributes, which are factored into an overall APEAL score that is measured on a 1,000-point scale.
