Honda Accord and Ridgeline Show Off Their APEAL

By Ryan Everson | September 4th, 2018


Each year, the U.S. Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout Study measures vehicle owner satisfaction on 77 attributes of their cars including design, features, comfort, performance, and luxury. This year, not one, but two Honda vehicles made the list of top vehicles in their segments. The 2018 Honda Accord won for the midsize car category, and the 2018 Ridgeline was the best midsize pickup for the second year in a row. The CR-V and Odyssey both ranked in the top three of each of the compact SUV and minivan categories, respectively.

The annual J.D. Power U.S. APEAL Study is based on responses from over 80,000 new-vehicle buyers or lessees about how gratifying their vehicles are to own after the first 90 days. Manufacturers use the APEAL Study to help them in design and production decisions so they can tailor future models on what consumers want.

Check out the commuter champion that’s anything but ordinary, the 2018 Honda Accord. This sedan has crisp exterior styling that turns heads as you cruise through the neighborhood. But they must look quickly because you’ll be gone in a flash thanks to its turbocharged engines. It’s also available as a hybrid for extra efficiency.
