For the study, the research firm polled 86,000 owners of 2014-MY cars to rate their vehicles in 77 categories 90 days after the initial purchase. The APEAL score is on a 1,000-point scale.

The industry average came in at 794 for 2014. Premium brands averaged 840, while non-premium averaged 785. Porsche came in at 882, and Hyundai scored 804. Ram, Volkswagen and Mini non-premium brands finished above the average.
