Accolades like these will surely be welcomed particularly in the market where safety is the number one demand and feature and with the award garnered, Hyundai can surely expect an increase of sale of its vehicles and in this case the Hyundai Genesis sedan in the next coming months or so.

Apart from the ESC, it also comes with EBD (Electronic Brake-Force Distribution), electronic active head restraints as well as a total of 8 airbags installed which is the standard set by the company in safety. These world-class active and passive features are installed in Hyundai cars (Genesis in particular) to ensure that the passengers are well protected in a collision and to help prevent accidents as well.

According to Derek Joyce, the Manager of Product Planning of Hyundai Motor America, "Genesis was designed to be one of the safest vehicles on the road and includes features such as ESC and Hyundai's first electronic active front head restraint system, which helps prevent whiplash,"

For the 2010 edition, to be awarded the ‘Top Safety Pick’, apart from the same elements which will be evaluated as per the previous year, IIHS has made it a bit tougher this year by adding in roof strength test where the Genesis sedan topped as well. The 2009 model also won the 2009 edition as well. This means that the roof must be “more than double the strength of current federal requirements in order to better maintain vehicle integrity in the event of a rollover accident”.

Other areas being evaluated is on the crash-worthiness in front at 40mph in the crash tests while on the side, the crash test would involve the car at 31mph striking a barrier which comes in a form of an SUV or a pickup. 2 step procedures are involved in the rear crash test it involves the rear of the stationary car is hit at 20mph speed.
