Kia Honored in J.D. Power 2017 APEAL Study

Kia Niro

The Kia Niro, Soul and Cadenza were named as segment winners in J.D. Power’s 2017 Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout study.

The automaker is the only non-premium brand to achieve segment wins, with J.D. Power naming the Niro as the top Small SUV, the Soul as the top Compact Multi-Purpose Vehicle and the Cadenza as the top Large Car.

“Customers always want cars they’re proud to own and Kia earning three J.D. Power APEAL awards reflects the global focus we have placed on ensuring our customers come first,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president, product planning, Kia Motors America. “Buyers today have more choices than ever and are looking for vehicles that offer a superior combination of design, technology, safety, efficiency and premium amenities. The Niro, Soul, and Cadenza are prime examples of these important attributes as more people discover Kia’s world-class model line every day.”

The APEAL study looks at overall customer satisfaction with cars during the first 90 days of ownership. Factors that go into J.D. Power’s decision include everything from storage space, seating, driving dynamics and fuel economy to powertrains, exterior and interior driving and overall visibility.
