According to the study by the Organization of Consumers and Users (OCU) in which 52,430 consumers participated in Belgium, Italy, France and Portugal, Lexus is the most trusted car brand with 95 points out of 100. The podium is completed by two other Japanese brands, Subaru and Toyota. A remarkable performance for the Toyota group, by the way.
Conversely, at the bottom of the ranking, we find Jaguar, Land Rover, Alfa Romeo and above all Tesla, dead last with 60 meager points.
French brands in the soft underbelly of the ranking
The French brands do not shine, lost in the middle of the ranking, DS Automobiles being neck and neck with Peugeot, ahead of Citroën and Renault. Only Dacia stands out by being at the gates of the top 10 (11th).
Very bad trip for the FCA fire brands
Among the bad surprises, we note the poor performance of Audi, Volvo and Porsche in the premium perimeter. As well as the catastrophic shooting grouped at the bottom of the classification of the brands of the former FCA group (Fiat, Jeep, Lancia and therefore, Alfa Romeo, today at Stellantis).
