GM models lead in JD Power 2010 APEAL Study

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 2, 2010

In the J.D. Power Asia Pacific 2010 China Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) Study, General Motors’ models -- the Chevrolet New Sail, Chevrolet Spark and Wuling Rong Guang -- ranked first in their segments. In the premium compact class, New Sail from Shanghai GM took the top position.

Chevrolet Spark, which was made in SAIC-GM-Wuling, is the leader in the compact segment. Meanwhile, the minivan segment had Rong Guang, which also came from SAIC-GM-Wuling, as its best-ranked vehicle. Other GM vehicles also ranked very high in several segments.

For instance, Buick LaCrosse reached the last place of the podium in the upper premium midsize class. And Wuling Sunshine made by SAIC-GM-Wuling was ranked third in the minivan category. Kevin Wale, President and Managing Director of the GM China Group, expressed his pleasure with the latest results.

Wale added that this is another affirmation of how China’s vehicle buyers are satisfied with its locally engineered and locally developed products.

What the APEAL Study considers are 82 attributes in 10 vehicle classes. These include: vehicle exterior; vehicle interior; storage and space; audio/entertainment/navigation; seats; heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC); driving dynamics; engine/transmission; visibility and driving safety; and fuel economy.
