Safety

The 2011 Genesis is a Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. A spokesman from IIHS says that typically a car that does not undergo significant structural changes from one model year to the next, like the Genesis, will carryover the Top Safety Pick designation. However, the IIHS has not done so for the Genesis at this time.

Neither the 2011 nor the 2012 has been tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The 2012 Genesis is equipped with eight standard airbags, including seat-mounted side airbags for front and rear passengers. Rear-seat mounted airbags are not the norm for any class of vehicle. Side curtain airbags for both rows are also standard. You can see the rest of the car's safety features and specs here.
