Porsche Earns Top Collective Score in 2016 J.D. Power APEAL Study
Porsche takes home multiple awards from the J.D. Power APEAL study released last month for leading models including the Boxster and Macan.
Porsche once again received high ratings from the J.D. Power APEAL report released last month. The APEAL report is an annual study that provides information on driver satisfaction across a variety of factors including design, performance, and driver experience. The study correlates responses from over 80,000 owners of new cars who evaluated more than 240 models grouped into ten different categories. In the 2016 study, Porsche won the overall classification for best luxury brand. Additionally, the Porsche 911 Boxster and Porsche Macan both earned the first place in their respective categories.
Porsche Earns Leading Score for Overall Classification
The 2016 J.D. Power APEAL study has named Porsche as the top luxury brand in overall classification twelve times since 2004. Overall classification is based on an aggregate score out of 1,000 covering an array of categories. This year, Porsche beat out all other manufacturers with a score of 877. In addition to a top overall score, Porsche also earned top scores in multiple individual categories. For example, the 911 came in first place in the “Midsize Premium Sports Car” with an overall rating of 893. The Porsche Boxster also performed well earning a score of 892 points in the “Compact Premium Sport Car” category, and the Macan earned a top score of 876 in the “Compact Premium SUV” category.
The 2016 J.D. Power APEAL study was released last month and included rankings on design and performance characteristics of 33 different automotive brands. The study is completed annually and serves as a premium benchmark for luxury vehicle performance and ownership satisfaction. The survey is taken by drivers 90 days after they take delivery of a new car and covers purchases made from November of 2015 through February 2016.
Porsche Boxster and Macan Lead Their Categories
The APEAL study is not the first report to place the Porsche Boxster and Macan at the top of their class. Since the release of the Porsche 718 Boxster, it has received rave reviews from journalists and drivers alike. Reviews in publications such as Top Gear, Auto Express, and Car Scoops call out the exceptional handling, power, and value of the new Boxster. Similarly, the Porsche Macan has been named Best Entry Luxury SUV by the Daily News Auto Awards. It has been called out for leading performance, capability, style, and practicality.
