Hyundai Tucson, Veloster top JD Power quality survey in US
For decades, Korean marque Hyundai has been in the front line of modern car design and manufacturing. The very word “Hyundai” is derived from a Korean word “hanja” meaning “modernity.” But it hasn’t evolved merely for the sake of evolution. Rather, the company has always had one goal in mind: building cars of unbeatable quality.
These days, Hyundai is more devoted than ever to creating the ideal driving experience. Although Hyundai has had an unbelievable ride so far, as the company moves into new markets, expands its line of vehicles, and once again pushes the envelope of quality and ingenuity, the public is in for even more surprises.
Recently, both the Hyundai Tucson and Veloster received top scores in J.D Power 2020 U.S Initial Quality Study (IQS). The Hyundai Tucson earned the best compact SUV, while the Veloster earned a top score in the compact sporty car vehicle segment. Additional vehicles in Hyundai’s lineup performed well. The Accent and Elantra both receiving 2nd places in their own Segments, while Santa Fe placed third.

The study, which provides manufacturers with information to assist the identification of problems and drive product development, was fielded from February through May 2020.
The 2020 redesign marks the fifth generation of the study, which is now based on a 223-question battery organized into nine vehicle categories: infotainment; features, controls and displays; exterior; driving assistance interior; powertrain; seats; driving experience; and climate.
