Hyundai Wins Most Initial Quality Awards in Company History
J.D. Power released the list of winners in its 2014 Initial Quality Study℠ today, and Hyundai was thrilled to see that it scraped up the most Initial Quality Awards it’s ever received in one year. Three Hyundai vehicles—the 2014 Genesis, the 2014 Elantra, and the 2014 Accent—took first place in their respective segments. In addition, the 2014 Santa Fe and the 2014 Sonata took second place in their categories and the 2014 Equus took third in its category.
As if that was not good enough news for the automaker, Hyundai was also the highest-ranked non-premium brand, for the third time in the last ten years. It was ranked fourth overall, making it also the third time that it ranked among the coveted Top Four brands overall in the last ten years.
“Receiving IQS awards in multiple vehicle segments acknowledges Hyundai’s commitment to quality and customer satisfaction across our entire product lineup, not just our luxury vehicles,” said Dave Zuchowski, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America. “Today’s awards are a true reflection of the hard work and dedication of all the Hyundai team members here, in Korea and Montgomery, Alabama.”
Not a bad day to work at Hyundai, eh?
