If you’re looking for the best cars of 2020, and you’re especially interested in knowing which vehicles satisfy their owners according to the consumers who own them, J.D. Power can help. 

You see, we survey tens of thousands of verified new-car owners every single year in order to find out what they like and what they don’t like about their vehicles during the first 90 days of ownership. From this information, supplied by consumers just like you, we find out which models offer the best quality, which models offer the best overall appeal, and which models do the best in both of these areas at the same time.
