Three Scion vehicles were segment award recipients: the iconic Scion xB earned the Compact Multi-Purpose Vehicle award, the Scion xD ranked highest in the Small Car segment, and the Scion tC earned the award for Compact Sporty Car.
The Lexus ES sedan ranked highest in the Compact Premium Car segment and the Lexus GX luxury utility vehicle was awarded among Midsize Premium SUVs.

The Toyota brand improved three spots with their number three ranking. The popular Toyota Sienna received the award in the minivan segment and the Corolla earned the top spot in the Compact Car segment. Toyota Corolla and Lexus ES demonstrate their long-term durability as they each received a J.D. Power Initial Quality Study (IQS) awards when they were new in 2012.
