Honda's entry-level hatchback, the Brio has ranked highest across segments in the JD Power 2014 India Initial Quality Study. The Study included a total of 8,429 vehicle owners, who purchased a new vehicle between November 2013 and July 2014.
The study included 73 vehicle models in 30 cities from 17 carmakers from May 2014 - September 2014. The study, in its 18th year, considered problems that owners experience with their new vehicle during the first two to six months of ownership.
It examined more than 200 problem symptoms covering eight categories: engine & transmission; vehicle exterior; driving experience; HVAC; features, controls and displays; vehicle interior; seats; and audio, entertainment and navigation. Just so you know, all problems are summarised as the number of problems per 100 vehicles (PP100). Lower PP100 scores indicate a lower rate of problem incidence and higher initial quality. In all the categories, overall initial quality in India averages 100 PP100 in 2014, which was 115 PP100 in 2013.
