[THE INVESTOR] The Genesis G80 and G90 sedans earned the highest safety rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for the year of 2018, Hyundai Motor said on Dec. 14.

Hyundai produces the luxury Genesis models under an independent marque separate from other vehicles.

The two Genesis models earned the Top Safety Pick+ awards within the large luxury car segment, the company said in a statement. 

“Among the awards Genesis has earned for design, customer appeal and appreciation, this IIHS designation confirms our commitment to build vehicles whose safety is rock solid,“ Erwin Raphael, general manager of Genesis Motor America, said in the statement.

To qualify for the IIHS highest safety rating, a vehicle has to earn a high score in several test categories that include the driver‘s side small overlap front, roof strength and front crash prevention, the statement said.
