Chery, the Chinese automotive manufacturer, has triumphed as the top Chinese brand in the prestigious J.D. Power 2023 China Initial Quality Study (IQS), reinforcing its unwavering dedication to producing exceptional vehicles with superior quality and customer satisfaction.
On August 31, J.D. Power released the highly anticipated results of the 2023 China Initial Quality Study (IQS), a benchmark for new car quality in the Chinese automotive market. Chery ranked as the frontrunner among all domestic Chinese brands, marking a significant advancement from its 2022 position. Notably, Chery’s models, Chery Arrizo 5 and Chery Tiggo 5X (also known as the Tiggo 4 Pro in international markets), clinched top positions in the compact sedan and compact SUV market segments, respectively.
The J.D. Power IQS stands as one of the organisation’s flagship industry assessments, encompassing 230 models from 48 brands. Focusing on quality issues encountered by owners of fuel vehicles within their first two-to-six months of ownership, the study evaluates 218 specific problem areas across nine categories, using problems per 100 vehicles (PP100) as a metric.
Chery’s consistent excellence in major J.D. Power awards remains undeniable. In the recent 2023 Automotive Performance, Execution, and Layout Study (APEAL), Chery’s Tiggo 7 series and Tiggo 8 series secured top positions in the mid-sized economical SUV and mid-sized SUV segments. The 2022 APEAL Study saw Chery Arrizo 5 PLUS lead the mid-sized basic sedan market, while the 2021 China Vehicle Dependability Study championed the Chery Tiggo 3X in the mini-SUV category.
