SUV (reliability)

The Citroën C5 Aircross 1500 D makes a remarkable entry in the SUV reliability classification by taking the 16th place and thus becoming the most reliable of the French SUV. The PSA group is doing pretty well with 7 models among the first 30, even if some are at the bottom of the list. The observation for Renault is a little more mixed. Indeed, apart from the Dacia Duster, that the diamond manufacturer manages to position in 18th place, the majority of its SUVs are in the middle of the classification. The Kia Niro, which had made a strong impression two years ago, fall from its 1st place to fall to the 7th by losing almost 2 points on our reliability index. And it’s still Toyota that stands out with 4 models in the top 10. Special mention for the RAV4 including three versions, divided into two different generations (before and after 2018), are among the best classified.
