In order to become a true premium brand, Genesis, the recently established brand by Huyndai, is equipped with advanced technologies, including the ultimate safety systems found on premium cars.

The G80 offers Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), using sensor fusion technology to help avoid a potential collision or reduce its impact in certain circumstances. With this system, the G80 will employ automatic braking when it detects another vehicle at an unsafe closing rate of speed. This system uses Smart Cruise Control and the forward camera from Lane Departure Warning (LDW) to provide this extra margin of safety.

In addition, the G80 features Blind Spot Detection (BSD) with Lane Change Assist (LCA) and Rear Cross-traffic Alert (RCTA). The BSD system helps monitor traffic around the car by using radar sensors in the rear bumper to warn the driver of an approaching vehicle in his or her blind spot via an indicator on the side mirrors. If the driver activates the lane change indicator and attempts to change lanes, ignoring warning indicators, BSD additionally issues an audible warning and haptic steering wheel vibrations. In addition, for G80s equipped with the Head’s-Up Display, the BSD system indicators also project onto the windshield, nearer to the driver’s view of the road, a segment first.

Using the same sensors as BSD, Lane Change Assist (LCA) performs a similar function to help detect vehicles approaching in adjacent lanes at high speeds and warns the driver if a lane change is unsafe. Rear Cross-traffic Alert (RCTA) also utilizes those sensors to scan areas on each side of the car while in reverse to detect any unseen cross-traffic.

From the front, the Lane Departure Warning (LDW) system uses the forward-facing camera to detect lane departure, and will activate a warning signal on the instrument panel while issuing a haptic steering wheel vibration warning. Working in concert with LDW, Lane Keep Assist (LKA) additionally provides a driver-adjustable level of steering assist to help prevent inadvertent lane departure and provides haptic steering wheel vibration feedback.

the G80 is equipped with High-beam Assist (HBA) to detect both oncoming traffic and vehicles in the same lane ahead at night. The G80 also offers a parking assistance system with eight ultrasonic sensors located on the front and rear bumpers. The sensors, along with the rearview camera, help detect how close objects are when parking. Distance is indicated on the in-dash screen and is accompanied by an audible warning tone.
