– 2017 Genesis G90 3.3T flagship sedan awarded IIHS Top Safety Pick+
– Genesis G90 provides uncompromised standardized safety with comprehensive suite of cutting-edge technology
The 2017 Genesis G90 obtained one of the market’s finest safety awards as the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) labelled it a Top Safety Pick+. This achievement is a result of its outstanding performance throughout the trials. The Genesis G90 personifies a more intelligent, sophisticated approach to comfort and security by holding technology and sophistication as major goals.
“Security is a characteristic of the Genesis brand with state-of-the-art safety systems standard on the G90 and a collection of functions that are unrivaled in the premium luxury category,” said Erwin Raphael, general manager of Genesis in the U.S. “We have the utmost respect for our customers and their passengers and work tirelessly to offer cars and SUVs with first-rate safety advancements.”
To provide driver assurance and passenger safety, the G90 utilizes the most extensive assortment of standard safety systems in the premium luxury category. These systems include Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) with Pedestrian Detection, Driver Attention Alert (DAA) and Smart Blind Spot Detection. The automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection uses a camera and radar indicator to activate automatic braking between 5 and 50 miles per hour. Additionally, the G90 brings traveler protection to the forefront by automatically tensing up seatbelts during fast turns, when on wet streets, high acceleration or sudden change in direction. Mechanical and technological innovations also enhance the safety of the G90 as a result of its sophisticated high strength steel and inflexible platform. A Multi-view Camera System provides four cameras surrounding the vehicle.
The IIHS performs automobile assessments to establish the overall crashworthiness. It determines how effectively an automobile secures its passengers during an accident. It additionally evaluates for frontal collision mitigation and features that alert the driver or brake on autopilot to minimize or prevent a crash. To get approved for 2017 Top Safety Pick+, an automobile needs to get “good” scores in the five crashworthiness evaluations, an “advanced” or “superior” score for frontal collision mitigation and an “acceptable” or “good” headlight score. The automobiles that function best in the trials qualify for Top Safety Pick+, an award that’s been handed out since 2013.
