2015 Hyundai Genesis IIHS Top Safety Pick+Enlarge Photo
2015 Hyundai Genesis
“With respect to active-safety features, the 2015 Hyundai Genesis has now caught up to the best from Germany, Japan, or Detroit.”
The Genesis serves as the flagship luxury model for Hyundai’s range of vehicles; but it deserves to make shoppers’ shortlists as much for safety as for features and creature comforts, The available Automatic Emergency Braking system that’s available in the Genesis, as part of the Technology Package, is one of the few active-safety systems to be rated as ‘Superior’ in IIHS testing. Furthermore, the fully optioned Genesis has a critical mass of active-safety items (what Hyundai calls the Sensory Surround Safety System), including things like Blind Spot Detection (BSD), Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA), and Lane Change Assist (LCA)—as well as Lane Keep Assist (LKA), which will actually make mild steering corrections to help keep you in your lane if attention lapses.
