AutoPacific, a market research and consulting firm focused on the automotive industry, is out with their 19th Annual Vehicle Satisfaction Awards which are based on surveys of owner’s satisfaction with their new vehicles. For the fourth straight year, the Chevrolet Corvette has won Best in Class for the Sports Car category, and is one of five GM vehicles that was tops in its class.
Joining the Chevrolet Corvette is the new 2015 GMC Canyon (Compact Pickup), the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe (Large SUV), the 2015 Buick Enclave (Luxury Crossover SUV) and the 2015 GMC Arcadia (Large Crossover SUV).
“2015 represents a year of diversity,” says George Peterson, president of AutoPacific. “Competition is fierce and no one automaker dominates the results.” The 2015 winners are spread across nearly every manufacturer, with wins by 9 out of 11 automakers. General Motors receives the most wins with 5, followed by Kia and Nissan, with 4 and 3 wins, respectively. Honda, Toyota, FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobile), Volkswagen and Ford follow with 2 wins each. Volvo, Mercedes-Benz and Hyundai each take home 1 win.
“For the 2015 model year, there are 274 models and 33 brands from which to choose a new vehicle,” says Peterson. “It can be daunting for consumers to sort through all of those options and try to predict which one will work best for them in the long run. AutoPacific VSAs help to give them a strong starting point.”
In addition to the individual Best in Class winners for the 2015 survey, AutoPacific awarded General Motor’s GMC Brand as the Most Satisfying Popular Brand for the second year running.
A look at the Vehicle Satisfaction Survey’s archives shows that prior to the Corvette’s four year streak (2012-2015), the previous three years (2009-2011) was won by the Porsche 911. So congratulations to the Corvette Team and the car’s owners who responded so positively to the survey.
