2012 Top Safety Pick
IIHS

Not yet rated
NHTSA




The Hyundai Genesis has been on the market since 2009, but neither of the agencies that regularly perform crash tests has yet announced results for the new model year.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) hasn't tested the Genesis since it updated its test criteria in the 2011 model year, but it has given the sedan a five-star rating for rollover resistance, which it derives from a mathematical formula. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awarded the Genesis its Top Safety Pick designation in the 2012 model year, but hasn't published its list for 2013 as of yet.

We'll update this page when more data is available.

Until then, we're assigning the Genesis' score based on its past performance and its list of safety equipment. On that list are eight airbags, including rear-seat side airbags; stability control; and active headrests. Bluetooth is also standard equipment. However, in this price class, we think a rearview camera should be standard equipment; on the Genesis, you'll have to order one of the optional navigation systems on the V-6 model to get one.

Parking sensors, adaptive cruise control and a lane-departure warning system are optional on the V-6 car, and standard on the R-Spec model.

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.

 

Conclusion

No 2013 crash-test data has been reported; the Genesis has a good track record, but a rearview camera should be standard.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
