Top-Rated 2018 Luxury Cars in Performance and Design
Each year, J.D. Power asks new-vehicle owners what they like the most and what they like the least about the cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans that they’ve owned for at least 90 days. This information from consumers is compiled into the annual J.D. Power Automotive Performance, Execution, and Layout (APEAL) Study, which is designed to determine which makes and models people find the most appealing.
From this data, J.D. Power calculates Power Circle Ratings. These visual representations of the APEAL Study’s findings are useful to consumers during the new-vehicle research and shopping phases. People can reference the ratings while deciding which make and model will best serve their needs.
