FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., June 24, 2020 -- For the fourth year in a row, Genesis placed first in the J.D. Power 2020 U.S. Initial Quality Study (IQS) among all premium automotive brands. As the #1 premium brand in the study, Genesis vehicle owners experienced 17 fewer problems per 100 vehicles than the second best luxury brand and 24 fewer problems than the average new 2020 vehicle owner that responded to the survey from JD Power.
"To be ranked the #1 premium nameplate in the J.D. Power Initial Quality Study any year is a significant accomplishment," said Mark Del Rosso, President and Chief Executive Officer, Genesis Motor North America. "But to be named the top ranked premium nameplate for four straight years is phenomenal. Genesis consistently scores well above our luxury brand competitors. We are thrilled with the results and remain steadfastly committed to delivering a personalized luxury experience to all of our customers."

The 2020 G80, in its final year of production, placed second in the Upper Midsize Premium Car Segment with its score of 164 PP100 13 PP100 better than the segment average of 177 PP100.
The new 2020 G90 launched into the market in late 2019 and did not receive enough survey responses for J.D. Power to render a statistically valid score for it.
The annual J.D. Power IQS study serves as the industry benchmark for new-vehicle quality measured at 90 days of ownership. The 2020 survey is based on responses from purchasers and lessees of new, 2020 model-year vehicles, which is designed to provide manufacturers with information to facilitate the identification of problems and drive product improvement.
