2011 Hyundai Genesis Safety

9.0
Safety
The Hyundai Genesis has extensive safety equipment and has received top safety scores in testing from NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) and the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety).

Top 'good' results in all categories—frontal, side, and rear impact, along with roof strength—apply from the IIHS, and the 2011 Genesis has been named one of 66 IIHS Top Safety Picks. And while the federal government awarded the 2010 Genesis top five-star scores in frontal and side impact, this model hasn't yet been tested according to stricter tests and ratings that are being phased in for 2011.

The 2011 Hyundai Genesis comes with eight airbags in all—dual front, side curtain, and front and rear-seat side bags—along with stability control and anti-lock brakes.

The 2011 Hyundai Genesis is likely one of the safest luxury sedans.

Outward visibility is good, and the Genesis now offers adaptive cruise control to go with its available rear camera and front and rear parking sensors.
