2021 Genesis G80 Wins Coveted IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ Award

2021 Genesis G80 Toronto, ON

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.

Genesis G80 and GV80 Win 2021 AutoGuide Luxury Awards

2021 Genesis G80 Toronto, ON

AutoGuide is a trusted source for all things automotive, providing the latest news and reviews for vehicles in the U.S. and Canada. Each year, the editorial team at AutoGuide chooses its top picks in a variety of segments. For the 2021 list, two Genesis models were recognized as the best of the best.

The 2021 Genesis G80 was named the Luxury Car of the Year by AutoGuide. As the model that helped launch the Genesis brand in 2015, the G80 is the signature in luxury. What helped the G80 stand out was its combination of power under the hood, its calm and smooth ride, and its long list of premium materials and features inside. When describing the 2021 G80, AutoGuide managing editor Kshitij Sharma noted, “The G80 is a phenomenal car as it strikes the perfect balance between power, drivability and luxury.”

AutoGuide also named the 2021 Genesis GV80 the Luxury Utility Vehicle of the Year on its list. Having debuted just last year, the GV80 is “a breath of fresh air in the mid-size luxury segment,” according to AutoGuide. The GV80 was praised for similar reasons as the G80, as the SUV offers many high-end amenities, even on its base trim. But the editors at AutoGuide also appreciated some of the available first-class features like the 21-speaker Lexicon® sound system and active noise cancellation.

We could go on about how incredible the G80 and GV80 are, but it’s better if you experience them for yourself. Visit us at Genesis Downtown in Toronto to take either for a test drive.
