AutoPacific’s Ideal Vehicle Awards – What Are They?0
The IVA award recognizes those products designed most closely to meet the requirements of their buyers.
The IVAs are based solely on owner input. These results are the voice of the math. AutoPacific does not have a vote. We only do the arithmetic.
AutoPacific’s IVAs measure the fusion between owner expectations and the reality provided by the manufacturer by quantitatively measuring how closely a vehicle matches those expectations.
An ideal vehicle is one that meets the owner’s expectations for the product. They do not want it changed. They don’t want it bigger. They don’t want it faster. They don’t want its styling changed. When asked what they would change about their new vehicle, buyers who want the least change are driving their ideal vehicle.
