Today, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) announced that the 2024 Genesis GV60, GV70, and GV80 SUVs earn TOP SAFETY PICK+ recognition.
“At Genesis, customers are at the center of everything we do, and their safety is our top priority,” said Claudia Marquez, chief operating officer of Genesis Motor North America. “Genesis vehicles offer exceptional safety performance, and we are thrilled that our high standard for safety in our SUV lineup has been recognized by IIHS.”
To qualify for IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ in 2023, a vehicle must earn:
- Good ratings in the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, updated side and original moderate overlap front tests
- Acceptable or good headlights standard across all trims
- Advanced or superior ratings of a front crash prevention system in both daytime and nighttime vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations must be available
GV60 and GV70 were both good-rated for headlights on all trims. GV60 earned superior ratings on the standard front crash prevention system in both vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations, while GV70’s standard system earned advanced ratings in both tests. GV80 earned a superior rating in the daytime vehicle-to-pedestrian test and an advanced rating in the nighttime evaluation.
All Genesis models are equipped with a comprehensive suite of state-of-the-art active and passive safety technologies including Forward Collision Avoidance-Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Keep Assist, Blind-Spot Collision Warning and more. Each vehicle in the Genesis line-up offers a standard suite of advanced safety features that help avoid crashes and provide advanced occupant protection when crashes do occur. These advanced safety systems resulted in the 2024 GV60, GV70, and GV80 earning the IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ awards.
“Every Genesis vehicle is designed and engineered with safety at the forefront,” said Brian Latouf, Genesis global chief safety officer. “These IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ awards further demonstrate the remarkable safety performance and design of our vehicles.”
The 2024 GV60, GV70 and GV80 are equipped with the latest in safety and driver assistance technologies, including:
- Eight or more standard airbags, including front center airbag between the driver and center console, helping to protect front cabin occupants in the event of a collision.
- Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist* which can help mitigate the risks of collisions with detected vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists in certain conditions.
- Blind-Spot Collision Avoidance Assist**, helping reduce the chance of potential impact with a vehicle that is detected in the blind spot.
- An innovative platform – with strong focus on safety – including passenger compartment protection and reinforcement areas using advanced high strength steel for rigidity and safety.
- Genesis Connected Services and Connected Care: Starting with all-new 2023 models, Genesis vehicles now come included with Connected Care, with no expiration. Connected Care provides an always-on connection allowing for peace-of-mind safety features like Automatic Collision Notification, Enhanced Roadside Assistance, and SOS Emergency Assistance when the vehicle has access to a cellular network connection.
*Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA-Ped&Cyc) with Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection helps detect pedestrians and cyclists, but not in all conditions. FCA-Ped&Cyc is designed to assist drivers to avoid, or reduce the severity of, collisions with cars that have slowed or stopped in front of them. The system is not designed to detect certain stationary objects such as trees or poles, and may not detect all vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists under certain road, weather and vehicle conditions. It is a supplemental assist and does not replace the need for extreme care and attention by the driver. FCA-Ped&Cyc may not stop the vehicle completely and will not avoid all collisions. The driver is responsible for being attentive and maintaining control of the vehicle, and should not wait for the system’s alerts before braking as there may not be sufficient time to brake safely. See Owner’s Manual for further details and limitations.
**Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA) helps the driver by warning of other cars in the blind spot region and can apply braking to help prevent an unsafe lane change. It senses the rear side territory of the vehicle when it is traveling over 20 mph. There are limitations to the function, range, detection and clarity of the system. It will not detect all vehicles or objects in the blind spot. Its operation depends on the size, distance, angle and relative speed difference between your car and other cars. BCA may not operate if sensors are obscured in any way. Do not rely exclusively on BCA. BCA is a supplemental system and the driver must still be attentive and exercise caution when driving. It is important to always signal, look over your shoulder and through your mirrors before changing lanes. It is the driver’s responsibility to be aware of the surroundings and ensure it is clear before changing lanes or directions. See Owner’s Manual for details and limitations.
