Hyundai Earns 2nd-Highest Place Among Non-Premium Brands

Hyundai Ranks as 2nd Highest Non-Luxury Brand

Hyundai owners have given the brand high marks in the 2019 Initial Quality survey conducted by J.D. Power. Reliable Hyundai is proud to see their brand leading the rankings in the number two spot.

Brands compete for the lowest scores because that indicates that their customers have fewer problems with their new cars. Hyundai ranked second for affordable brands, only one point behind rival Kia, which is part of the Hyundai family of vehicles. Furthermore, the Hyundai score (71) was much better than the next-ranked non-premium brand (Ford: 83).

How Many Hyundai Models Ranked?

Sixteen of the 18 Hyundai models ranked in the top three in their class. This demonstrates a uniformity to the quality level that is very encouraging. While Hyundai continued to move ahead in the ranks, there were 18 automakers who slid backward.

Did the Hyundai Santa Fe Perform Well?

Receiving the top marks in the midsize SUV segment, the Hyundai Santa Fe showed itself to be a worthy purchase. The Santa Fe is all-new this year, making it even more important that it be well-received by its new owners. A more rugged exterior is matched with a more upscale interior. Standards, such as 8-way power chairs and modern crash-avoidance systems, make it a good value.

The J.D. Power Initial Quality study is restricted to new vehicle owners who have been driving their new purchase or lease for 90 days. These drivers have an informed perspective on how well a model is made and how well its systems work. In all, more than 75,000 U.S. new vehicle owners completed the survey.

There are many questions in multiple categories, making sure that the entire vehicle is worthy of a good score. Questions examine the owner's satisfaction with the car's engine, dash tech, HVAC system, special features, safety systems and more.

Hyundai vehicles come in many shapes and sizes, but you can count on all of them for quality, as the J.D. Power survey has demonstrated. Come find the one that fits your lifestyle at Reliable Hyundai.
