The NHSTA Gives The 2009 Hyundai Genesis Five-Star Scores

images-17.jpgThe 2009 Hyundai Genesis has received nothing but praise by everyone who has driven it.  This car comes at a great price with a large auto warranty and can hold its own with the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class.  Now it has also received a seal of approval by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, getting five-star crash-test ratings across the board.

The Hyundai Genesis actually received something that the BMW and Mercedes weren’t able to achieve- five stars in both side-impact and frontal impact crash tests.

According to John Krafcik, who is the V.P. of Strategic Planning and Product Development at Hyundai, the five-star results that the Genesis received are just one indication that Hyundai engineers are dedicated to safety.

Krafcik is making reference to the rigid body structure, active head restraints, and eight airbags in the Genesis.  Also included in the airbag count are rear side-impact airbags, which are uncommon for a vehicle costing $30K.

The five-star ratings by the NHTSA are just one added selling point to a vehicle that has lots going for it, such as a good price and new car warranties, as well as a great ride and look.
