Learn about how Genesis earned the Best Car Brand!

The Best Luxury Car Brand in 2018

The Consumer Reports ranking factors in a few different components while assessing each automotive brand score, including how drivers perceived the experience behind the wheel. This list included several top names in the industry, from luxury brands like Lexus, Porsche, BMW and Audi, as well as brands like Subaru, Honda, Toyota, and even Tesla. Genesis earned the top score from the trials, in which both the G80 and G90 were thoroughly test-driven. The vehicle earned an 89 on its road test, and got an overall score of 81.

Beating Out the German Automakers

German cars have always been synonymous with luxury and high performance, citing exceptional engineering and top-of-the-line craftsmanship. However, most were surprised that a German brand like BMW, Audi, or even Porsche didn't earn the top spot while the best car brand, Genesis, ranked # 1 on the list. Audi was a close second followed by BMW. Porsche was even beat out by Lexus.

These brand rankings involved exhaustive research and testing conducted on more than 640,000 cars so owners could properly assess the reliability and determine the satisfaction ratings. The overall score includes a composite of the reliability score, the satisfaction score, and the road-test score. These scores also factor in driver-assistance technology, and safety features into the overall number.

Why Did Genesis Earn the #1 Rank?

At Norm Reeves Genesis, we can't say that we're surprised that Genesis is the best car brand and beat out its top competitors. Both the Genesis G80 and G90 offer a lot to their respective drivers. But there are a lot of reasons why Genesis earned its place at the top.
