2018 Genesis G80 Safety Features

When you're driving around Cerritos, Long Beach, and Anaheim, safety is always a top priority, and you want your vehicle to be equipped to handle whatever the road may throw at you. This guide to the 2018 Genesis G80 safety features is brought to you by your friends at Norm Reeves Genesis. We'll give you an in-depth look at what the G80 has to offer to keep you safe on all of your drives. 

Passive Safety Features

These features are designed to protect you in the event of a collision. The body of the 2018 G80 is forged from 51.5% advanced high-strength steel, giving the body of the car a rigid structure to keep you safe inside. The advanced airbag system features front and rear seat-mounted side airbags, dual front airbags, roof-mounted side-curtain airbags, and a driver's knee airbag to surround and cushion you from all sides in the event of a crash.

Active Safety Features

These features are intended to prevent a collision from occurring in the first place, using modern, intuitive technologies to assist drivers. On the 2018 G80, all of these incredible advanced systems are standard features!  

  • Lane Keep Assist: This system is able to detect lane markings in order to provide a flashing display and a steering wheel vibration to alert you to direct your vehicle back into your lane. If necessary, the system may automatically steer the car into the center of your lane for you.
  • Smart Cruise Control with Stop/Start: This system is similar to traditional cruise control, with the added benefit of keeping up with traffic for you. Simply set your desired speed and a safe following distance that you'd like to maintain from the vehicle ahead, and the car will remain at that speed, accounting for the need to brake and accelerate in order to keep your set following distance. Even after coming to a complete stop, the system will reengage once the car ahead starts moving again.
  • Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert: Blind spot detection alerts you when there is a vehicle in the way during a lane change, and will also provide a secondary alert when you attempt to activate the turn signal while the car is still in your blind spot area. Rear Cross-Traffic Alert warns you of vehicles approaching in the lane behind you as you reverse out of a parking space or driveway.
  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection: Uses both a radar and a camera to detect slower or stopped vehicles ahead, as well as pedestrians. If you do not react to their presence, the system will automatically engage the brakes for you in order to avoid a collision.
  • High Beam Assist: When driving in the dark, you'll likely need your high beams to see, but they can impair the vision of oncoming drivers. This system detects oncoming and leading drivers, and automatically switches between high beams and low beams. 
  • Driver Attention Alert: This intuitive system can analyze driver patterns and the car's position in the lane in order to detect driver distraction or fatigue. A visual and audio alert will be issued to let you know that you may need to take a break.
