Nissan Wins Two Awards in 2014 APEAL Study
When it comes to performance, execution, and layout, the Nissan Rogue and Quest don’t lack for appeal, according to J.D. Power’s 2014 U.S. Automotive Performance, Execution, and Layout (APEAL) Study. The Rogue pulled in a score of 786 (out of 1,000) to top the Compact SUV segment, and the Quest topped the minivan segment with 790 points.
“The all-new 2014 Rogue has received numerous accolades in the automotive industry, but the most important test comes when owners evaluate the vehicle for themselves,” said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations, in a statement. “Driven by owner feedback, the J.D. Power APEAL Study serves as an important benchmark indicating where our products stand with consumers. It’s both an honor and a demonstration to the quality of our vehicles for Rogue and Quest to rank highest in their segments.”
The APEAL Study polled more than 86,000 new vehicle purchasers and lessees, asking them to rank their vehicles based on 77 different attributes.
Nissan was one of only four automakers to win two segments in the 2014 APEAL Study: Audi won with the A8 and Q5; Ford ruled the pickup segments with the F-150 and F-250/F-350; and Porsche took two with the 911 and Cayenne.
