It was the company's sixteenth consecutive highest ranking in the Luxury category, eleventh consecutive highest ranking in the Passenger Car segment and fourth consecutive highest ranking in the Truck/Utility category. Michelin placed second in the Performance Sport segment, just four points shy of top honors.
