Telluride & Stinger Named Segment Winners in J.D. Power 2020 Automotive Performance, Execution, and Layout (APEAL) Study
Two of Kia’s most talked about models – the Telluride three-row SUV and Stinger sport sedan – have earned a J.D. Power Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) award for their respective segments.  The announcement follows Kia being named the highest ranked brand in the industry in the J.D. Power Initial Quality Study.
The J.D. Power APEAL study measures new-vehicle owners’ experiences with design, performance, safety, usability, comfort, perceived quality and overall satisfaction with their vehicles in the first 90 days of ownership.
Whether customers are interested in driving a bold, capable three-row SUV like the Telluride, or the head-turning, powerful Stinger, these latest accolades highlight Kia’s excellence in automotive engineering and overall customer satisfaction.
With minor enhancements and a special appearance package – Nightfall Edition – for the 2021 model year, the in-demand Telluride continues to impress with quality, design and value.
Now in its third year, the 2020 Stinger remains Kia’s highest-performance vehicle in a highly competitive segment.
