The 2017 Genesis G80 holds two of the highest safety honors in the auto industry – the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) 2016 Top Safety Pick + and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) five-star rating.
IIHS Top Safety Pick+ and NHTSA’s Five-Star Safety Ratings help consumers pick vehicles that offer the highest level of crash protection and identify those with the most active and passive advanced safety technology.
With one of the most rigorous vehicle safety testing environments, IIHS rates vehicles in a small overlap front crash, moderate overlap front crash, side and roof strength, and head restraint tests, as well as a standard or optional front crash prevention system.
Winners of the Top Safety Pick+ award must earn good ratings for occupant protection in all five of the crashworthiness evaluations and an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention.

NHTSA is the only organization that rates rollover resistance, in addition to frontal and side crashworthiness.
New aspects of the ratings system include side pole testing, using different sized crash-test dummies, offering a single Overall Vehicle Score per vehicle and highlighting new crash avoidance technologies.
The 2017 Genesis G80 offers a host of standard advanced safety technology features that are unsurpassed in the mid-luxury segment.
These features cover the full spectrum of safety, from driver awareness to total occupant safety, and even the safety of other drivers on the road.
