Hyundai Genesis received J.D. Power highest initial quality segment ranking

J.D. Power announced that the Hyundai Genesis received the trophy for the highest initial quality in the midsize premium car segment. The award comes from the J.D. Power 2013 U.S. Initial Quality Study (IQS). The Initial Quality Study, now in its 27th year, serves
as the industry benchmark for new-vehicle quality measured at 90 days of ownership. According to the study Hyundai Genesis owners reported fewer problems with their vehicles than any premium midsize car.

"Outperforming all of our competitors in the premium midsize car segment is a reflection of the dedication of all Hyundai team members," said Erwin Raphael, Director of Engineering and Quality, Hyundai Motor America. "Awards like this demonstrate we're succeeding in connecting with our customers through an unprecedented combination of premium performance, technology, safety and quality."

In addition to Genesis's victory, the Hyundai brand substantially reduced problems per 100 vehicles and finished tenth overall, gaining eight rank positions. The Hyundai overall score was 106 problems per 100 vehicles, seven problems fewer than the industry average. Accent, Sonata and Azera ranked second in their respective segments. The all-new Santa Fe ranked third in its segment.
