Two Genesis Models Rated as Top Safety Pick+.
The Genesis G80 and G90 (shown) have both been named as a Top Safety Pick+ by the U.S. Insurance Institute of Highway Safety’s (IIHS).
The Genesis G80 (when equipped with specific headlights) and G90 have both earned the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety’s (IIHS) highest rating by being placed in the Top Safety Pick+ category.
Both cars earned that rating within the “Large luxury cars” segment.
To qualify for 2018 Top Safety Pick+ designation, a vehicle must earn good ratings in several test categories.
The G80 and G90 achieved those ratings in the driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests, as well as an acceptable or good rating in the passenger-side small overlap front test.
It also must earn an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention and a good headlight rating.
The G80 earned the IIHS’ designation under the provision that it was equipped with the optional Dynamic Bending Lights within its Ultimate package.
This is the second model year in a row for Top Safety Pick+ designations for the G80 and G90.
