German and Japanese brands praised
In terms of quality, German cars respect their reputation. The top ten places in this ranking are occupied by models from German manufacturers, including Audi, Mercedes, Volkwagen and BMW. Audi is doing particularly well because the manufacturer places five of its vehicles at the six best places. The Audi Q5 wins the highest rating, for the Audi A6 and the Audi A5.
As far as reliability is concerned, it is the Japanese brands that stand out. The Toyota Prius III, the first hybrid model to be introduced to the market, ranks first in the Honda CR-V and the Honda Civic.
Peugeot is on, Renault off the hook
In the French constructors Peugeot is doing well with the sixth place in reliability of its compact SUV 2008. Also note the beautiful 10th place Dacia Sandero. Renault, on the other hand, is far behind: the SUV Kadjar is only in 26th place.
According to the editor of L & # 39; Argus, the French manufacturer would pay for his cheap strategy. "In less than a year and a half, from 2015 to early 2017, quite a few new models have placed themselves in concessions, and as a result they have inevitably put pressure on their subcontractors if they did not see their quality process again," Judge Gregory Pelletier said in the columns of Parisian.
