FOUNTAIN VALLEY, California, March 18, 2021 – Today, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) announced that the first-ever 2021 Genesis GV80 SUV has been designated as TOP SAFETY PICK+ (TSP+) for 2021. GV80 joins the 2021 G70 sport sedan and 2021 G90 flagship sedan with top honors and prior to this, G70, G80, and G90 all received TOP SAFETY PICK+ designations for two years in a row in 2019 and 2020.
“At Genesis, the customer is at the core of everything we do, and safety is our top priority,” said Mark Del Rosso, President & CEO of Genesis Motor North America. “The GV80 is our latest entry in the Genesis line-up of vehicles that places customer safety first.”
All Genesis models are equipped with a comprehensive suite of state-of-the-art driver assistance and 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 sure-footed handling thanks to the rigid chassis construction that ensures firm stability even under the most challenging driving conditions.
“Winning the IIHS TSP+ award for GV80 demonstrates the exceptional safety performance and design of our vehicle,” said Brian Latouf, Chief Safety Officer of Genesis Motor North America. “The GV80 body structure was engineered with energy absorbing front and rear crumple zones and high strength structural load paths to maintain occupant compartment integrity during severe crash impacts. The GV80 structural safety design protects occupants with the seatbelt systems, pre-tensioners and 10 airbags including a new front seat center airbag that deploys between the driver and front seat passenger. We are proud that the GV80 design effectively protects its occupants and performed well in the IIHS tests.”
