J.D. Power Study Recognizes Excellence with Nissan Awards

August 17th, 2016 by

J.D. Power is a familiar and trusted name in the automotive industry. Consumers often turn to their carefully sourced and analyzed data for details and opinions on vehicle purchases. In the recently released 2016 J.D. Power Automotive Performance Execution and Layout (APEAL) study, several Nissan vehicles were recognized as high performers across segments. For the current line up, this is another outstanding honor to add to the many current Nissan awards.

Study Details

Nissan Maxima redAs with all J.D. Power studies, the criteria were exhaustive and rigorous. The APEAL study is conducted annually and the 2016 study marks its 21st year. The study is conducted via new vehicle purchaser and lessee surveys. Vehicles are evaluated on 77 different attributes, then they are evaluated and scored on a 1,000-point scale.

One of the most interesting things that this year’s study found was that drivers who have some of the latest safety features, like blind spot monitoring and parking assist, have a greater sense of security in their vehicles and have an overall higher level of satisfaction. This likely lead to Nissan’s high rankings, as these models offers a suite of “Safety Shield” technologies and connectivity innovations, like Driver Attention Alert, Nissan Connect, Forward Emergency Braking, Driver Attention Alert, Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection, and Advanced Drive-Assist.
