Audi Tops Consumer Reports "Brand Report Card"

Audi finished 1st in Consumer Report's "Brand Report Card" for the 2nd year in a row. Consumer Reports determines the Brand's score by averaging the Brand's "Overall Score" for each of its models. The "Overall Score" is a combination of road test score, predicted reliability, owner satisfaction and safety results.

Here is this year's Top 10 -

  1. Audi
  2. Porsche
  3. BMW
  4. Lexus
  5. Subaru
  6. Kia
  7. Mazda
  8. Tesla
  9. Honda
  10. Buick

Interesting notes -

  • Toyota finished outside the top 10 mostly because of the Overall Score of the new Toyota Tacoma
  • Only 2 domestic brands finished inside the top 10 - Tesla and Buick
  • Even though they were still ranked 18th, Cadillac moved up six places from last year
  • Chrysler gained 7 places, mostly because of the all new Pacifica
