The industry benchmark for new-vehicle appeal, the APEAL Study gives owners a platform to evaluate their vehicles across 77 attributes. These combine into an overall APEAL score measured on a 1,000-point scale.
"The all-new 2014 Rogue has received numerous accolades in the automotive industry, but the most important test comes when owners evaluate the vehicle for themselves," said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations. "Driven by owner feedback, the J.D. Power APEAL Study serves as an important benchmark indicating where our products stand with consumers. It's both an honor and a demonstration to the quality of our vehicles for Rogue and Quest to rank highest in their segments."
