2018 Performance Compact Premium Car Awards | J.D. Power
Funny the stinger is considered a compact car.
This ain’t no civic.
well isn't that nice ......................the trophy case is going to fall over soon !
Yeah, I don't consider the Stinger to be a compact car. But at least JD Power acknowledges that it's a premium car and a performence car.
It also considers the S5 and A5 to be compact too.
I guess the impressive part to me is which cars were considered for the award and the fact that the Stinger won it.
^ That and the 4 Series GC are tweeners, several inches longer than their compact 4-door counterparts.
In addition, JDP counts the tweener Q50 and the FWD MKZ and ES as compacts (the latter sharing a platform w/ the Avalon).
So, like many publications, what is considered a compact is more based on the segment's price range.
Interesting that the Volvo S60 had the lowest safety score. They used to promote themselves as being the safest cars.
awesome!!...one more for the books
Compared to the competition, the Stinger's price range is "compact".
Funny, the Premium is listed last, as if it is the top trim. 2018 Kia Stinger Ratings, Pricing, Reviews and Awards | J.D. Power
All that time we spent filling out those questionnaires paid off!
I think they have no clue what they are doing.. the "Large Car" ratings have all the ones we would compare to: "2018 Performance Large Car Awards | J.D. Power"
Wait, why did it not score at least a 9 on 'Safety'?
edit: grammar, more than a 6-pack of beer makes me skip a word or two at times
That is a good question. I thought that the one area the Stinger trumped practically everyone else was on safety. Hmm?
Since the survey is based on consumer questionnaires, fess up, which of you compromised the Stinger's safety rating? I mean, a convertible got a higher rating on safety?!
To me, it's about the cars they compared the Stinger to. And that the Stinger won.
It’s the people expecting Tesla autopilot. “What do you mean I have to steer? I was told I could take a nap. The crash isn’t my fault”.
Good for the Stinger and KIA. They can add another trophy winning car to their credit.
@CaliSting Shockingly, there is no Alfa Romeo Giulia on that list...
Shocking? Why would it? JD power is crap. I have driven enough cars I trust my own experience over numb nuts at JD powers. Hey 2018 Porsche 911 Carrera didn’t get award either. Boo hoo. I’m going to cancel my order. ...not.
If you need somone other than yourself to assess a car I’d recommend Chris Harris or guys over at EVO. They are real enthusiasts not industry hacks.
Yeah I am wondering why Evo UK and Chris Harris did not even reviewed the Stinger yet.... Maybe its a KIA? Have not seen any of the videos or maybe I overlooked...
