2017 Genesis G80 is one of the safest cars sold on the US market. And it is not us who say so, but the NHTSA, who awarded the luxury sedan a maximum 5 star rating in its latest crash test results.
NHTSA is the only organization that rates rollover resistance, in addition to frontal and side crashworthiness. New aspects of the ratings system include side pole testing, using different sized crash-test dummies, offering a single Overall Vehicle Score per vehicle and highlighting new crash avoidance technologies.
The 2017 Genesis G80 offers a host of standard advanced safety technology features that include: Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), Blind Spot Detection (BSD) with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA), Lane Keep Assist (LKA) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) with Haptic Steering Wheel, High Beam Assist (HBA), Pre-active seat belt and nine airbags, Smart Cruise Control with Stop/Start capability, Electronic Parking Brake with Automatic Vehicle Hold, 8-inch touchscreen navigation system with rearview camera.
In addition, the G80 is equipped with Electronic Stability Control (ESC), energy-absorbing front seats and nine airbags including advanced dual front airbags, driver’s knee airbag, front and outboard rear seat-mounted side-impact airbags, and roof-mounted side curtain airbags for both front and rear outboard seat occupants. Standard LED Daytime running lights improve vehicle visibility and a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) provides individual tire pressure readouts.
