NEW GENESIS GV80 EARNS HIGHEST SAFETY AWARD
Buckle in with confidence in the new 2021 Genesis GV80 — the first-ever luxury SUV from Genesis. The GV80 stands out in the modern luxury SUV market with its stylish look and dynamic performance, but safety for drivers and occupants is also part of the GV80 DNA. So much in fact, that it recently earned a 2021 TOP SAFETY PICK+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
The TOP SAFETY PICK+ award is a remarkable achievement recognized by the IIHS that rates a vehicle’s overall safety performance. To qualify for this award, a vehicle must earn a good rating in six IIHS crashworthiness tests and it must also be available with a front crash prevention system. The crashworthiness tests evaluate how well a vehicle protects its occupants in a crash and includes testing for driver- and passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints.
The second evaluation tier is a vehicle’s crash avoidance and mitigation features, which refers to available technology that can lessen the severity of a crash or prevent a crash altogether. When testing the Genesis GV80, it excelled in front crash prevention, both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian.
Additionally, TOP SAFETY PICK+ vehicles must be available with good or acceptable headlights across all trim levels and the GV80 scored good visibility on both its low and high beams.
The GV80 comes standard with 10 airbags including a new front-seat center airbag that deploys between the driver and front-seat passenger. It is also equipped with automatic emergency braking, pedestrian and cyclist detection, adaptive cruise control, active lane control, and blind-spot monitors, rear emergency braking, parking sensors, LED quad headlights and LED daytime running lights, and a driver-attention warning.
If you’re in the market for a luxury SUV and safety is a top priority, the GV80 provides the latest state-of-the-art safety and driver assistance technologies for added peace of mind. Earning the coveted TOP SAFETY PICK+ award proves that the Genesis GV80 is one of the most well-rounded vehicles in the luxury midsize SUV market.
