Top-Rated 2018 Family SUVs in Performance and Design
Conducted on an annual basis, the J.D. Power Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) Study measures what people like what people do not like about their new vehicles. Once owners have had their new vehicles for at least 90 days, survey respondents tell J.D. Power how satisfied they are with the performance, design, layout, and features of their new cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans.
Using this information, J.D. Power creates Power Circle Ratings to visually express a summary of the gathered data. Consumers can use these ratings during the new-vehicle selection process, helping them to understand which makes and models are liked most and which are liked least.
This buyer’s guide highlights the top-rated 2018 Family SUVs from the J.D. Power 2018 APEAL Study. Each model listed in alphabetical order below receives a Power Circle Rating of 4 or 5 out of a possible 5 for overall appeal.
