2015 Top Shopping Brands Rated by Women | How Does Your Brand Rank?

The average woman visits 30% more stores than men when car buying. Dealers that have a high WSI “shopping” score convert on average 15% more browsers to buyers. Women perceive these stores as more trustworthy and comfortable places to do business with and go there first. That is ROI. Watch this video to learn more.

Top 2015 Car Brands as Rated by Women
The number of women shopping and buying cars continues to escalate in our country. As a result, in this highly competitive industry their shopping, or “browsing”, habits are being analyzed more than ever.

Women rely on car dealer reviews 50% more than men. They also prefer to read reviews from other women. That is why our business focuses on reviews exclusively from this powerful buying sector. Likewise, we are the only company in the reputation space that captures reviews on the shopping, i.e. the browsing experience.

Our 2015 US Women’s Car Dealership Report, compiled from 3,450 women’s car dealer ratings and reviews, showcases the top “shopping” car brands as rated by women; the overall WSI score for all brands was 4.37. Each brand’s WSI®, or Women Satisfaction Index, is derived by taking the aggregate of all the dealer’s scores from that brand’s reviews on the site ranging from a 5.0 (highest) to 1.0 (lowest).

Shopping Scores of the Top 15 Brands:
The overall WSI score for all brands was 4.37. Keep in mind these reviews are from a controlled environment. Meaning our company works with about 400 dealers, not 17,000. These dealers use our platform to understand women’s unmet or unrecognized needs. By evaluating the data, dealers measure women’s satisfaction in key areas to create and maintain high scores. The difference these high scores make significantly impact perception, reputation, walk in’s and conversions.

Here is the list by brand.

1. Volkswagen, scored 4.75
2. Ford, scored 4.74
3. Chevrolet, scored 4.66
4. Jeep, scored 4.63
5. Buick, scored 4.61
6. Hyundai, scored 4.59
