The Genesis G80 Sport sedan has earned five stars overall, the highest possible safety rating, from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The G80 Sport received top marks in a battery of tests in frontal crash, side crash, and rollover scenarios.

To qualify for the prestigious, five-star rating, the G80 Sport excelled in the NHTSA evaluation, earning top marks in front driver-side and passenger-side protection, side barrier and pole impact, and rollover mitigation.

Genesis provides a comprehensive suite of segment-leading safety features that work to minimize risk and maximize protection for the driver, passengers and fellow drivers and pedestrians.

Some of these advanced safety features include:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) with Pedestrian Detection
  • Smart Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-traffic Alert
  • Lane Keep Assist
  • Driver Attention Alert
  • Dynamic Bending Light with High Beam Assist

Previously, both the G80 and the flagship G90 sedans were commended as “Top Safety Pick+” choices by the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in 2017.
