Top-Rated 2016 Family SUVs in Quality
J.D. Power has conducted the annual Initial Quality Study (IQS) for 30 years, measuring owner-reported problems with new-vehicle design and defects during the first 90 days of ownership. The study—an industry benchmark of owner satisfaction with new-vehicle quality—is based on more than 80,000 survey responses in 2016.
From this research, J.D. Power creates Power Circle Ratings (PCRs) to visually reflect and summarize the study’s findings. These ratings can help consumers when they shop for a new vehicle.
Based on the results of the 2016 U.S. IQS, this buyer’s guide contains the top-rated 2016 family SUVs. Each model highlighted earns a Power Circle Rating of 4 or 5 out of a possible 5 for initial quality during the first 90 days of ownership.
