The IIHS Safety Rating
The IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) is one of the main organizations that performs strict safety testing to determine a vehicle’s ability to prevent collisions and protect occupants in the event that one occurs. As stated above, the 2021 Genesis G70 has been named an IIHS 2021 TOP SAFETY PICK+. This means it has received “Good” ratings—the highest possible rating—across the board in terms of crashworthiness. Areas that were covered during the testing process include the following:
- Roof strength
- Head restraints and seats
- Small overlap front: driver-side
- Small overlap front: passenger-side
As a result, you can be confident the G70 is able to provide the necessary protection in the event a crash becomes unavoidable.
2021 Genesis G70 Safety Features: Elements for Extra Support
Features the G70 uses to help keep you and your passengers safe while you’re on the road include Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go and Driver Attention Warning. The available Smart Cruise Control can adjust your speed according to that of the vehicle ahead to maintain a preset safe following distance. The Stop & Go aspect of this feature brings your vehicle to a complete stop if necessary and then takes it back up to speed when traffic resumes.
Driver Attention Warning comes standard in the 2021 G70. It makes longer drives easier by letting you know when it detects that you’re drowsy or distracted. Once it alerts you, you can decide if it’s a good idea to take a break from driving.
A Boost in Awareness
Safety aspects of the Genesis G70 that make it easier to remain aware of your surroundings when behind the wheel include the standard rearview camera with parking guidelines. You can count on it to provide an accurate view of what’s behind your G70 while you’re backing into or out of parking spaces and driveways.
Blind-Spot Collision Warning with Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning is standard as well. The first part of this safety feature helps when you’re attempting to change lanes by letting you know when a vehicle occupies your blind spot zone. The Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning looks out for vehicles crossing into your path whenever you’re driving in reverse.
