Top-Rated 2020 Small Cars in Quality According to Consumers
Whether you live in a crowded city with tight parking spaces, carry passengers infrequently, or simply need a low-cost way of getting around town, a small car provides transportation in an efficient and affordable package. But have you ever wondered which cars consumers rank the highest in quality? This list will show you.
J.D. Power knows which cars consumers think are highest in quality because it surveys thousands of new vehicle owners every year. Verified owners tell J.D. Power about what’s gone right and what’s gone wrong with their new vehicle during the first 90 days of ownership. The data is gathered, analyzed, and packaged in a series of benchmark automotive industry studies, including the annual Initial Quality Study (IQS).
In the IQS, J.D. Power gives each vehicle meeting a minimum number of survey responses a “problems per 100 vehicles,” or PP100, score. The lower the PP100 score, the higher the vehicle ranks in terms of quality because consumers are citing fewer problems for each 100 cars on the road.
In this post, you’ll find the 10 small cars that received the highest PP100 scores, according to the consumers who own the vehicles. They’re listed in descending order according to PP100 score, with the top-rated vehicle at the bottom.
