FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., June 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2017 Genesis G90 has been named the top vehicle overall—across all categories—by owners in AutoPacific's 21st annual New Vehicle Satisfaction Awards (VSAs). No other vehicle has ever scored higher than the Genesis G90 in AutoPacific's survey. These awards identify the most satisfying vehicles on the market and are an industry benchmark measuring how satisfied owners are with their new vehicle.
"It is a tremendous honor to receive this esteemed award on account of our Genesis G90 owners' positive feedback, especially within the luxury landscape," said Erwin Raphael, general manager of Genesis in the U.S. "This recognition is a testament to our focus on customer expectations around luxury, respecting the overall ownership experience and delivering an outstanding product that meets consumers' ever evolving wants and needs."
The VSAs are based solely on owner input from survey responses from more than 54,000 owners of new 2016 and 2017 cars and light trucks. The awards measure how satisfied an owner is with 49 attributes of their vehicle ranging from quality and safety to fuel economy and performance.
"In a competitive market where new car buyers increasingly have higher levels of expectation and satisfaction, the Genesis G90 is not only the top rated luxury car, but it is the top rated vehicle overall - earning it our 2017 President's Award and surpassing the 2016 Cadillac Escalade's score from last year," said AutoPacific President, George Peterson. "This is an exceptional result for a new car from a new luxury brand, and creates a new benchmark for excellence in personal transportation. Clearly the Genesis product and brand strategy has been working."
The Genesis G90 redefines the luxury experience at every level. It is a vehicle shaped by consumer-focused values and grounded in performance engineering, innovative technology and premium comfort in all seasons, from the heat of the summer to the harshest winters. An advanced H-TRAC® AWD system is available with G90's 3.3-liter twin-turbocharged V6 and the powerful 5.0-liter V8 GDI engines for confident control under adverse driving conditions. The G90 offers a formidable list of standard features and premium conveniences including a Lexicon® 17 Speaker 7.1 Surround-Sound Audio System, 12.3-inch HD Navigation System with Driver Information System, wireless device charging, and Smart Cruise Control with stop/start.
Additionally, the G90 features a multitude of standardized safety technology and has received the 2017 Top Safety Pick+ rating for Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
