The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety assesses vehicles each year to see how well they protect occupants in a crash and whether they provide crash avoidance and mitigation technology to help prevent or lessen a collision. The 2021 Genesis G80 was recently tested by the IIHS and awarded with the highest TOP SAFETY PICK+ designation.
“This IIHS TSP+ award for the G80 executive sedan, in addition to the three previous TSP+ designations awarded earlier this year, demonstrates the exceptional safety performance and design of our entire vehicle line-up,” said Brian Latouf, Chief Safety Officer of Genesis Motor North America.
The 2021 G80 received a handful of updates, including the Center Airbag that’s located in between the driver’s seat and center console. In the event of a side collision, the airbag deploys in 0.3 seconds to help prevent the front passengers from colliding with each other or vehicle components.
Other standard features that helped the Genesis G80 receive the TSP+ award from the IIHS include its LED projector headlights, Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Departure Warning, and Lane Keeping Assist. However, that’s just the start for the G80; it’s equipped with additional helpful driver-assist features like Driver Attention Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, Highway Driving Assist, and Rear Occupant Alert.
All of this is to say that the 2021 Genesis G80 is not only stunning inside and out, but also supremely safe. To learn more about this award-winning executive sedan, contact our team of Experience Managers at Genesis Downtown in Toronto.
