How Safe is it to Travel in the 2021 Genesis GV80?
According to the federal and independent crash-testing agencies Genesis has not posted the latest results till now. But from the users ratings and feedback, that we gathered from the Camden luxury SUV dealer that the 2021 Genesis GV80 models bodes its safety pedigree pretty well. Every Genesis GV80 vehicle that got tested by the IIHS has won a Top Safety Pick+ award from the IIHS while the NHTSA earned it a rating of five stars. All this prove that the joint effort of the safety and driver assistance systems help avoid every probability of a crash altogether. Every GV80 comes with the following technology features that save you from every drive hazard and risks.
Automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection:
This feature installed in the 2021 Genesis GV80 is meant to automatically detect the presence of a pedestrian or a cyclist and start applying the brakes, in the event when the driver fails to act in time. This feature first starts with sending an alert t the driver about the probability of a runover if there is a pedestrian or a cyclist in front of him. If the driver fails to engage the brake in time, the feature will first slow down the vehicle and then bring it to a complete stop, if required.
Adaptive Cruise Control:
This is a safety measure that automatically controls the vehicle speed and maintain it within a set limit, when there is a vehicle driving ahead. This prevents the driver from over-speeding when there is a traffic congestion and is placed between two vehicles. It doesn’t allow he driver to accelerate if there is a car ahead whom it is following. The other advantage of this feature is that one does not need to keep pressing the brakes when the vehicle has to be driven at a snail slow speed.
Active Lane Control:
To prevent the 2021 Genesis GV80 from changing its original lane without proper indication, this feature comes handy. This way it prevents the driver from suddenly changing the original lane, which is one of the most common reasons behind collisions, since the following cars do not get the hint that you will be changing the lane and can bump onto you without controlling their speed.
Blind-Spot Monitors with Rear Emergency Braking
Knowing well that while reversing the car, it can collide with anyone, or crash into a concrete, Genesis has installed blind spot monitors as a standard safety feature on all 2021 GV80 model. This feature comes with an added advantage of rear emergency braking that applies the brakes for the rear wheels moving backwards, once the monitor senses the presence of any living or non-living obstacle on its driveway, demonstrated the test driver we know, from the Camden luxury SUV dealership.
