Latest News: Hyundai has topped the 2018 JD Power Survey as the most reliable car brand. The Korean manufacturer achieved the least faults per 100 vehicles in the study, which measures problems experienced during the past 12 months by original owners of vehicles in the UK after 12-36 months of ownership. The most reliable 13 car brands in the UK were volume brands in the 2018 study, which determined dependability by the number of problems experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100), with a lower score reflecting higher quality. Hyundai ranked highest in overall with a score of 78 PP100, with Suzuki second with 87 PP100, followed by Kia with 94 PP100. Premium manufacturers fared the worst in the survey, with Mercedes-Benz - the best-performing premium brand - achieving 14th place in the table. The 2018 UK Vehicle Dependability Study was based on responses from 13,536 owners of new vehicles registered from February 2015 through February 2017.

A PSA PROTOTYPE CAR TRAVELS FROM PARIS TO BORDEAUX IN AUTONOMOUS MODE

A PSA PROTOTYPE CAR TRAVELS FROM PARIS TO BORDEAUX IN AUTONOMOUS MODE

On Friday, 2 October 2015, one of the PSA Group's four autonomous vehicles travelled the motorway from Paris to Bordeaux to take part in the Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) World Congress, which runs from 5 to 9 October.

The 580km trip was completed entirely in autonomous mode, without driver involvement. The car autonomously adjusted its speed and changed lanes to overtake, taking into account other vehicles, speed limits and infrastructure.

In July 2015, the Group became the first carmaker to obtain the relevant authorizations to carry out open road tests using four autonomous prototypes, and some fifteen such models in 2016.

The PSA Group works to develop solutions and technologies to make the car of tomorrow smarter, in order to enhance driver comfort and adapt to changing customer behaviour and expectations. Autonomous driving features will help cut the number of accidents linked to human error and reduce driver fatigue in monotonous driving situations. These projects will soon be applied to production models, with the gradual deployment of driverless features.

Commenting on this unique achievement in France, Carlos Tavares, Chairman of the Managing Board of the PSA Group said: "The journey made by our prototype today proves that autonomous vehicles are no longer of matter of science fiction. This ushers in a new era for mobility, which I find truly exciting."

The PSA Group is presenting its autonomous vehicle and its car-to-car and car-to-infrastructure communication systems at the 22nd ITS World Congress in Bordeaux (5-9 October 2015. These systems, which offer a new source of information, use data transmitted by other vehicles and infrastructure to enhance awareness of the vehicle's surrounding environment. The idea is to improve road user safety by anticipating certain critical situations to reduce the number of accidents.
