What to expect

Crafted Quality contributes to the perception of quality by a customer, based on Design layout, joint execution and assembly fit and finish throughout the car.

Crafted Quality is a sub-attribute of Perceived Quality, and is one of the 23 attributes in the JLR business. PQ is part of the Body & Chassis Engineering organisation rather than Vehicle Engineering, however, as an attribute there are many links and a close working relationship with Vehicle Engineering.
