Every year, J.D. Power conducts a survey of tens of thousands of people who have recently purchased a new vehicle to learn what they like and dislike about it, as well as what went well and what went wrong during the first few months of ownership. Through this survey, they find out the best cars of the 2021 model year as voted by the people. Below are the official rankings.
Best Cars in 2021 for Overall Quality
2021 BMW 2 Series
The BMW 2 series is the car that got awarded the best-quality small premium car. In 2021, the 2 Series was available in two body styles: a 2-door coupe and a 2-door convertible, with rear-wheel drive (RWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD. A 4-door Gran Coupe (actually a sedan) is also available, which is built on a completely different drove-drove platform with AWD.

2021 Cadillac CT5
The Cadillac CT5 was the car that got awarded the highest-quality midsize premium car. Unless you select the optional AWD system, this 4-door sedan provides a choice of turbocharged 4-cylinder and twin-turbocharged V6 engines, both of which drive the car’s rear wheels. Luxury, Premium Luxury, Sport, and V-Series trim levels are available. For the 2022 model year, a highly requested manual transmission supercharged V8 CT5-V Blacking version will also be available.
2021 Chevrolet Corvette

The Corvette altered little in its second year after a radical redesign and transition to mid-engine powertrain configuration, remaining in a coupe and convertible body styles in Stingray form. According to Chevrolet, the 6.2-liter V8 engine produces up to 490 horsepower and accelerates the Corvette to 60 mph in less than three seconds.

The G80 has been completely revamped for 2021, and it now incorporates the company’s most recent stylistic elements, resulting in a unique look both inside and out. You can choose between a turbocharged 4-cylinder and a twin-turbocharged V6, both of which drive the rear wheels or all four wheels via an AWD system.
2021 Hyundai Accent
