JD Powers loves on the 2014 Nissan Rogue and Quest
The 2014 U.S. Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) Study from J.D. Power has been conducted and the 2014 Nissan Rogue took the segment-best score while the Quest minivan took tops in its segment.
This is big news for Nissan, who've been promoting the new Rogue heavily and have steadily improved the Quest minivan to become a top competitor in that important U.S. segment. The APEAL Study is the benchmark for the industry in terms of consumer appeal in new vehicles. Owners of new vehicles are given a survey to evaluate their vehicles across 77 attributes, which are then measured on a 1,000 point scale. The Rogue scored 786 while the Quest earned a 790-point score.
"The all-new 2014 Rogue has received numerous accolades in the automotive industry, but the most important test comes when owners evaluate the vehicle for themselves," said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations.
Both the 2014 Rogue and Quest are replete with extensive family-oriented attributes and are bold statements in their categories. The Rogue has won several awards since its introduction for 2014, including Best Crossover on the 10 Best Family Cars list for 2014 and two Kelley Blue Book best lists. The 2014 Rogue, of course, was also the subject of our Rogue To Grandma's House road trip.
More wins for Nissan with these J.D. Power accolades.
