ORLANDO, Fla., June 16, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AAA Insurance has earned "Brand of the Year" status in the auto insurance category, according to the 2016 Harris Poll EquiTrend® study.
"To be recognized as the highest-ranked auto insurance brand in the nation is a great honor for AAA," says Marshall L. Doney, AAA President and CEO. "AAA Insurance provides value to members with great customer service and peace of mind at home, on the highway or when preparing for the future."
Using an academically-vetted brand equity model that examines familiarity, quality and purchase consideration, the annual Harris Poll EquiTrend® survey captures and analyzes more than 97,000 American opinions on more than 3,800 brands across nearly 500 different industry categories. Brand perceptions, such as emotional connection, functional attributes, brand awareness, influence and familiarity are measured and ranked against key competitors in each category.
"AAA is proud to offer American drivers auto insurance coverage they can trust," continued Doney. "AAA is committed to providing our members with exceptional products and services, and AAA's Insurance offerings are a natural extension of this commitment."
AAA Insurance received the highest numerical Equity Score among auto insurance brands included in the 2016 Harris Poll EquiTrend® Study, which is based on opinions of 97,120 U.S. consumers ages 15 and over surveyed online between December 22, 2015 and February 1, 2016.
