TOP SAFETY PICKS+
Hyundai models ranked at the top of the J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality Study (IQS). Tucson placed No. 1 for the highest initial quality in the small SUV segment, just as the all-new 2016 Tucson is scheduled to hit your dealerships this summer. In addition, Accent earned the top spot in the small-car segment for the second year in a row, while Elantra and Santa Fe finished second in their respective categories. We finished ahead of Japanese brands Toyota, Honda and Nissan; domestic automakers Chevy and Ford, and even beat out luxury brands, such as Lexus, Mercedes-Benz and BMW.
Setting the industry benchmark, the J.D. Power IQS is the highest honor a manufacturer can achieve in vehicle quality. This year also marks the second year in a row that Hyundai placed fourth in the industry, and the fourth time we finished among the top four brands overall. In addition, we also ranked second place among non-premium manufacturers.
Hyundai continues to rank high for its quality and fewer customers report quality-related issues with their Hyundai models – a feat that does not go unnoticed. It is a true testament to our collective continued commitment to customer safety and satisfaction. We are proud of this powerful message and plan to widely promote with potential Hyundai customers, driving foot traffic to your showrooms, increasing sales and profitability.
