Buick Encore First in its Class says J.D. Power APEAL Study

2013 Buick EncoreeThe Buick Encore is at the top of its class, according to J.D. Power’s APEAL study released last week. The study ranked the Encore higher than every other model in the Sub-Compact CUV segment, establishing its dominance in the category after J.D. Power recognized the Encore as the “Highest Ranked Sub-Compact CUV in Initial Quality (in a tie)” just last month.

Its big brother (or is it a sister?), the Buick Enclave, ranked among the top three in the Midsize CUV category.

The APEAL study is based on more than 83,000 responses from consumers who were asked to rate their satisfaction with their newly-purchased car, based on a total of 77 attributes such as design, comfort, performance, features, and style.

“Recognizing the Encore demonstrates the effort and attention to detail given by our engineers and designers,” said Tony DiSalle, vice president of Buick Marketing. “This award reinforces our focus on putting the customer at the center of everything we do.”
