Top-Rated 2021 Small SUVs in Quality According to Consumers
Small SUVs are among the most popular vehicles in America. At an affordable price, they provide a higher driving position, available all-wheel drive for bad weather and weekend adventuring, and the extra utility inherent in an SUV. So if you’re wondering what the best new small SUVs are according to the consumers who own them, J.D. Power has the answer.
The annual J.D. Power Initial Quality Study (IQS) surveys tens of thousands of verified vehicle owners who bought their car, truck, or SUV new. Survey respondents have had their new vehicles for at least 90 days and tell J.D. Power about their problems with them. A ‘problem’ can be anything from a minor issue to a major failure.
From this consumer-provided data, J.D. Power can assign each make and model with a ‘problems per 100 vehicles’ (PP100) score. The lower the PP100, the higher the vehicle’s quality.
Below, you’ll find the ten highest-rated 2021 small SUVs in quality according to the people who own them. This list includes models from the Small SUV and the Compact SUV segments, presented in descending order by PP100 score, putting the vehicle with the highest quality at the end.
