Top Safety Pick
full complement of active and passive safety features
The 2010 Hyundai Genesis has extensive safety equipment to go with its class-leading safety scores.
The Genesis was new last year, and both major crash-test organizations gave it the highest scores available. NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) awarded the Genesis five stars in all front, rear and side-impact tests. The IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) gave the Genesis "good" marks for its more rigorous tests, and with the fitting of standard stability control, the Genesis earned its Top Safety Pick award.
The 2010 Genesis sports eight airbags in all-dual front, side curtain, and front and rear-seat side airbags-as standard equipment, along with stability control and anti-lock brakes. Edmunds calls that a "full complement of active and passive safety features."
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.
The 2010 Hyundai Genesis is among the safest vehicles of its kind.
