2015 Hyundai Genesis Awarded IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus

The 2015 Hyundai Genesis sedan has gathered up another accolade.

Hyundai’s latest Genesis sedan has become the first and only rear-wheel drive luxury sedan to be awarded an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ rating when equipped with optional front crash prevention. The 2015 Genesis sedan was also the first rear-wheel drive luxury sedan to earn a “Good” rating in the small overlap crash test.

The all-new 2015 Genesis features new sensory surround safety technology including a Hyundai first, automatic emergency braking (AEB). It uses sensor fusion technology to help avoid a potential collision or reduce its impact. In addition, the sedan combines available lane departure warning (LDW) with lane keep assist (LKA) to provide a driver-adjustable level of steering assist, helping to prevent inadvertent lane departure.

“The TOP SAFETY PICK+ designation recognizes state-of-the-art safety,” said IIHS president, Adrian Lund. “The new Genesis is not only engineered to protect people when crashes happen, but with its optional automatic emergency braking system rated superior in our tests, this car can help drivers avoid some of the most common kinds of collisions altogether.”
