Top-Rated 2018 Small SUVs in Quality
Over three decades ago, the company founded by John David Power conducted the first annual Initial Quality Study (IQS). Designed to measure owner-reported problems with new vehicles during the first 90 days of ownership, the J.D. Power IQS became the automotive industry’s benchmark study for vehicle quality.
Fast-forward to today, and J.D. Power creates Power Circle Ratings from the information it collects through the IQS. These ratings are designed for consumers to use when they are shopping for a new vehicle, providing a visual summary of the information in a way that is simple to understand and use.
This buyer’s guide contains the top-rated 2018 Small SUVs for Initial Quality. Each model earned a Power Circle Rating of 4 or 5 out of a possible 5 for initial quality during the first 90 days of ownership.
