Volkswagen of America has received the most segment-level awards from the JD Power 2009 Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) Study.

The APEAL Study examines how gratifying a new vehicle is to own and drive. It is based on owner evaluations of more than 90 vehicle attributes. The 2009 APEAL Study is based on responses gathered between February and May 2009 from more than 80,900 purchasers and lessees of new 2009 model-year vehicles who were surveyed after the first 90 days of ownership.

The Volkswagen Tiguan, CC, Passat and GTI all ranked highest in the respective segments, capturing APEAL awards. Additionally, the Jetta came in second in the compact car segment, and the all-new seven-passenger Routan came in second in the minivan segment.

"It is quite an honor for Volkswagen of America to receive more awards than any other automaker," said Mark Barnes, COO of Volkswagen of America. "Earning four segment-level APEAL awards further demonstrates Volkswagen's commitment of producing high quality, fuel efficient, and fun-to-drive models that continue to appeal to owners," added Barnes.
