The data included in the YouGov Auto Rankings 2023 has been drawn from YouGov BrandIndex. ​

For the brand ranking, brands were ranked based on their ‘Index’ score. In this metric, we use an average across brand overall health, including General Impression, Satisfaction, Quality, Corporate Reputation, Value and Recommendation.​

Brands were ranked by this Index score between January 1, 2022, and December 31, 2022. To determine the biggest improvers, brands were sorted by change in score between that time and the previous twelve months. ​

All scores listed have been rounded to a single decimal place; however, we have used additional precision to assign ranks. All brands must have been tracked for at least six months to be included in either ranking.​
