Nissan Maxima Ranked Top Large Car in J.D. Power 2019 APEAL Study


Exciting news for Nissan Maxima lovers. The 2019 Maxima was recently named the top ranked vehicle in the J.D. Power 2019 U.S. Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) Study Large Car segment for the second year in a row. What’s even more incredible is that this particular award follows Maxima's top ranking in the 2019 U.S. Initial Quality Study (IQS) Large Car segment. This makes the Maxima one of only seven vehicles to earn both awards for this year.

Nissan's strength in offering great sedan choices continues with the Nissan Altima. The Altima tied for best Midsize Car with two other vehicles that were in the 2019 APEAL Study. Nissan is set to have one of the freshest sedan lineups in the industry this year thanks to the refreshed Maxima, all-new Altima and the upcoming all-new Versa Nissan.

Three other 2019 Nissan models have performed better than the non-premium APEAL average in their respective categories. They are the Nissan Armada, Nissan Murano and the Nissan TITAN. In the 2019 IQS awards, TITAN was ranked not only the best performer in the “Large Light Duty Pickup” segment, but the TITAN also tied for seventh in fewest overall problems among all vehicles studied.

The annual APEAL Study, now in its 24th year, surveys purchasers and lessees of new vehicles. The study gives owners a platform to evaluate their cars, trucks and SUVs across 77 specific attributes. The results are combined into an overall APEAL score and measured on a 1,000-point scale.
