The IIHS Honors Genesis Sedans with Top Marks for Safety

Both the new 2019 Genesis G80 and its full-size counterpart, the 2019 Genesis G90 were named TOP SAFETY PICK+, and as the word of industry experts like the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety go, that's an authoritative rating. So, what are the criteria to receive it, and what does it mean?

For one, a car must earn the expert's highest rating of "Good" in all categories, from driver- and passenger-side small-overlap front to moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints and seats. Secondly, it must get a "Superior" rating for front crash prevention. Both Genesis luxury sedans took home both -- 2019 G80, when equipped with optional dynamic bending LED headlights, and 2019 G90, when outfitted with standard automatic emergency braking.

What this all means is that, no matter where your new Genesis car takes you, whether around Concord, NC, across the way to Huntersville or down to Harrisburg, NC, on the Charlotte commute, up through Cornelius to Mooresville or elsewhere in North Carolina, you can enjoy peace of mind. Of course, you'll have extra help to get there, in both senses. Both models come standard with a comprehensive suite of state-of-the-art driver assistance features, including smart cruise control with stop & go and lane keeping assist. They can even assist in keeping you focused, inform you of traffic approaching in your blind spot, and more.

And there's plenty more under the hood and in-cabin to look forward to. You can discover both firsthand here at Genesis of Concord. Visit our dealer showroom here at 965 Concord Parkway South today, and we'll schedule your exciting test drive!
