In a significant achievement for Genesis, the 2024 Genesis G80 and its electrified counterpart, the Electrified G80, have been honored with the prestigious TOP SAFETY PICK+ awards by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). These awards, based on rigorous safety evaluations, underscore the commitment of Genesis to ensuring the utmost safety for its passengers.

To secure the TOP SAFETY PICK+ distinction in 2023, vehicles must excel in various safety tests and criteria. This includes earning “good” ratings in the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, original moderate overlap front, and updated side tests. Furthermore, “acceptable” or “good” headlights must be a standard feature across all trim levels, and a front crash prevention system must be in place, which earns either “advanced” or “superior” ratings in both the daytime and nighttime vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations.

In contrast, the lower-tier TOP SAFETY PICK award requires a vehicle to achieve only an “acceptable” rating in the updated side test and secure an “advanced” or “superior” rating in the daytime vehicle-to-pedestrian test.

Both the combustion-engine and electric vehicle (EV) versions of the Genesis G80 have successfully met all the stringent criteria for the TOP SAFETY PICK+ award. These large luxury sedans come equipped with “acceptable”-rated LED projector headlights as a standard feature on all trim levels. Furthermore, they boast a front crash prevention system that has earned a “superior” rating in the daytime vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluation, and an “advanced” rating in the nighttime test.

This achievement highlights the unwavering dedication of Genesis to providing not only a luxurious driving experience but also a safe one. The Genesis G80 and Electrified G80 have proven themselves as leaders in the field of automotive safety, setting the standard for top-tier safety features and performance in their respective segments.

Genesis customers can now enjoy peace of mind knowing that these vehicles have received the highest safety accolades from the IIHS, reaffirming their commitment to prioritizing passenger protection and vehicle safety in the ever-evolving landscape of the automotive industry.
