(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) JD Power recently presented three Hyundai vehicles - Genesis 2014, Elantra 2014 and Accent 2014 - their highest award for initial quality in their respective segments.


Hyundai ranked fourth overall in initial quality, climbing six spots from last year, and was the highest ranked non-premium brand. In total, Hyundai had six vehicles in the Top 3 positions in their segments, including two second place finishes for Santa Fe and Sonata and a third place finish for Equus.


This year's results mark the third time Hyundai has been the highest ranked non-premium brand in the past ten years, and the third time it finished among the Top Four brands overall. The award comes from the JD Power 2014 US Initial Quality StudySM (IQS). Now in its 28th consecutive year, IQS is the industry benchmark for new vehicle quality, measured at 90 days of ownership.


The IQS serves as the industry benchmark for new vehicle quality and has proven to be an excellent predictor of long term reliability, which may significantly impact new vehicle purchase decisions.


The focus of the study is model level performance and comparison of individual models to similar models in respective segments, which helps manufacturers worldwide to design and produce higher quality vehicles. In addition to victories in three vehicle segments, the Hyundai brand substantially reduced problems per 100 vehicles and finished fourth overall, gaining six rank positions compared with 2013.


The Hyundai overall score was 94 problems per 100 vehicles, 12 fewer than last year and 22 fewer problems than the industry average which actually deteriorated three problems per 100 compared with 2013. Also, Genesis scored back to back segment while Accent, with a mere 65 problems per 100, was the second highest performing vehicle in the study.


Hyundai as a brand has made significant strides on the back of sophisticated product design, quality, safety technology and exceptional value. Hyundai has not only become one of the top automotive brands in the world but also has overtaken some renowned brands in quality. One has to test drive and discover what millions of satisfied Hyundai owners already experience and enjoy “ Hyundai stands for uncompromising quality.


With this remarkable achievement, Hyundai is moving closer to its ambition of becoming the most-loved automotive brand'.
