Genesis G80 Sport earns NHTSA five-star safety rating

Muscat: The Genesis G80 Sport sedan 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 a 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 minimise risk and maximise 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.
In prior testing by NHTSA, the G80 sedan also received five-star honours. In addition, both the G80 and the flagship G90 sedans were commended as ‘Top Safety Pick+’ choices by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in 2017.
The G80 3.3T Sport builds on the refined performance of the popular Genesis G80 and adds a 365-horsepower, 3.3-liter turbocharged V6 engine plus unique sport and performance upgrades delivering improved driving dynamics and agility. In addition, distinctive styling elements and features visually differentiate the new 3.3T Sport from the rest of the G80 model line-up.
