Buying a new car can be both an exciting and stressful endeavor. From learning about all the different vehicles available on the market to negotiating with fast-talking salespeople, the decision-making process about what car is best for you takes more than a little bit of time, attention, and effort. And to help you navigate that process and make an informed decision that you hopefully won’t regret, Best Life consulted a recent J.D. Power study to find the most popular car brand of 2021.
The J.D. Power 2021 U.S. Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) Study is based on responses from 110,827 owners of new 2021 model-year vehicles who were surveyed after 90 days of ownership. The survey took place from Feb. through July 2021 and researchers asked owners to consider 37 attributes, which ranged from “the sense of comfort they feel when climbing into the driver’s seat to the exhilaration they get when they step on the accelerator.” Based on the responses, each car brand was given an overall APEAL index score measured on a 1,000-point scale. For this ranking we used the 18 mass market automotive brands tracked in the study. Now, without further ado, read on to discover the most popular car company of 2021.
