2012 Hyundai Genesis Safety

9.0
On Safety

The 2012 Hyundai Genesis benefits from a big dose of standard safety equipment.

On that list are eight airbags, including rear-seat side airbags; stability control; and active headrests. Bluetooth is also standard equipment.

The 2012 Hyundai Genesis has earned one top safety score, with federal scores yet to come.

The Genesis comes equipped with a rearview camera when a navigation system is ordered; parking sensors, adaptive cruise control and a lane-departure warning system are optional on the V-6 car, and standard on other models.

In formal crash testing, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) hasn't yet performed all its tests on the Genesis, though it does award it a five-star rollover resistance rating. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has given the Genesis its Top Safety Pick award.

Outward visibility is good, and we recommend opting for one of the navigation systems, for its own use as well as for the rearview camera it brings with it.
