Hyundai’s all–new Genesis wins US safety rating
Dubai, May 12, 2014
Hyundai’s recently launched all-new Genesis Sedan has received the North American Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) highest honor as a 2014 Top Safety Pick+, when equipped with optional front crash prevention.
The all-new Genesis is also the first rear-wheel drive luxury sedan to earn a Good rating in the small overlap crash test.
Launched in Africa and the Middle East this April, the All-New Genesis is the first Hyundai to benefit from the brand’s Fluid Sculpture 2.0 design concept, while also featuring significantly enhanced driving performance and state-of-the art technologies such as Smart Trunk function, Head-Up Display and safety features such as the all-new Automatic Emergency Braking.
The renowned IIHS rates vehicles in a moderate overlap front crash, small overlap front crash, side impact and rollover test, and evaluates seat/head restraints for protection against neck injuries in rear impact collisions.
“The Top Safety Pick+ designation recognizes state-of-the-art safety,” said IIHS president Adrian Lund. “The All-New Genesis is not only engineered to protect people when crashes happen, but with its optional automatic emergency braking system rated superior in our tests, this car can help drivers avoid some of the most common kinds of collisions altogether.” – TradeArabia News Service
