Euro NCAP has recently tested two cars that were just launched on the European market. The Genesis brand made its European debut with the G80 and the GV80. These two cars were crashed for the sake of safety.

The G80 sedan and GV80 SUV both impress with top Euro NCAP safety ratings. With head, chest and centre airbags, the GV80 scores full points for side impact protection, and the G80 is only a fraction of a point behind. Both cars also get full scores for child occupant protection and provide a full array of driver assistance systems to help prevent accidents in the first place. The GV80’s pedestrian protection is some way behind that of the G80 with its active hood, but is enough to secure a five-star rating.

The BMW 4 Series Convertible and 4 Series Coupé borrow heavily from the 3 Series, rated by Euro NCAP in 2019. Some tests have been carried over from the 3 Series but, in addition, extra tests have been done to ensure that the safety is at the same 2019 five-star level.
