A benchmark national survey's results are in and winning the Luxury Crossover SUV title is the LR2. (And this was a challenging year to do a survey!)
Southern California firm AutoPacific today announced its 13th Annual Vehicle Satisfaction Awards (VSA), naming the LR2 as the best luxury crossover SUV.
"These are difficult times, with news of automaker bankruptcies, companies restructuring and dealer closures a daily occurrence," says George Peterson, president of AutoPacific. "Clearly, the dynamics surrounding the Vehicle Satisfaction Award in 2009 are far different from anything we've seen in many years. Winners needed to overachieve to earn their awards."
AutoPacific's Vehicle Satisfaction Award is an industry benchmark for measuring how satisfied an owner is with his/her new car or light truck. This study by the Southern California-based automotive research firm summarizes the results of its 2009 model year vehicle satisfaction data and analysis.
"Vehicles that score highest in the Vehicle Satisfaction Awards hit the mark with their buyers by delivering value and satisfaction across a wide range of attributes," says Peterson. "The winners perform well in 48 separate categories that objectively measure the ownership experience."
The buyers of vehicles included in the Vehicle Satisfaction research purchased or leased their new vehicles during the 4th Quarter of 2008, as the public was just realizing that a major economic downturn was occurring.
"In a year that promises to be the toughest in more than a decade, car buyers are being especially prudent, and the data we've analyzed for the Vehicle Satisfaction Award will help this year's customers make wise purchase decisions," says Peterson. "We've found that more than 25% of respondents are positively influenced by awards like the VSA when deciding on a car and this trend will certainly continue given the economy."
That, and reading the right blogs. Congrats to all of you LR2 Owners. This confirms what you knew all along!
