Automakers are continuing to meet drivers' expectations as they improve features in their vehicles, according to a new report from J.D. Power.

German automaker Porsche ranked second in J.D. Power's 2018 U.S. Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) study, scoring one point less than Hyundai’s Genesis. Other high-end auto brands that scored high include BMW, Lincoln and Mercedes-Benz.

"The most impressive [finding was] the strong performance of Genesis and the Lincoln Navigator being the highest-scoring vehicle," said Dave Sargent, vice president of global automotive at J.D. Power. "This was the first time ever for a domestic brand [to be the highest-scoring vehicle]."
