Genesis safety record
With this award, the entire Genesis lineup has officially earned top honors from IIHS for the 2021 model year. The other three Genesis models to have earned top praise from IIHS include the Genesis G90 flagship sedan, the Genesis GV80 SUV, and the Genesis G70 sport sedan.

The G70 and G90 also received Top Safety Pick+ honors for the third year running; the GV80 is new for this model year, so this is the first year it was eligible.
