Top-Rated 2021 Luxury Cars in Appeal According to Consumers
Performance, design, and emotion all play a significant role in the choice of a luxury car. After all, this is what you’re paying extra for in the first place. In this respect, the results of the J.D. Power 2021 Automotive Performance, Execution, and Layout (APEAL) Study are even more important when you’re researching your new ride.
The APEAL Study measures what people like and dislike about their new vehicles. The survey data on which it is based comes from verified owners of new cars, trucks, and SUVs, people who’ve been driving them for at least 90 days. Based on this consumer-provided information, J.D. Power creates an overall index score that reflects a model’s overall appeal. The higher the index score, the greater the model’s appeal to the consumers who own them.
The top-rated 2021 luxury cars in appeal according to consumers are listed below in ascending order by index score. Note that we include only 4-door sedans; see our separate list of the most appealing coupes and convertibles if you want only two doors on your next luxury car.
