The Chrysler 300 finished second in the “Large Car” segment behind the Dodge Charger, and the Fiat 500 made its study debut finishing second in the “Sub-Compact Car” category.

The APEAL Study examines how gratifying a new vehicle is to own and drive, based on owner evaluations of more than 80 vehicle attributes. Unlike IQS, which measures short-term quality, the APEAL Study identifies consumer likes and dislikes about their vehicle during the first 90 days of ownership, particularly regarding vehicle design, content, layout and performance.
