It hasn’t arrived in Australia yet – it’s due to do so this month – but the new Hyundai Genesis has been rated as Australia’s safest car ever by the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP).

The Hyundai Genesis scored 36.88 out of a possible 37 points, to be assessed as even safer than the highly-rated Mercedes B-Class in 2012 which had a score of 36.78.

In responding to the results, Hyundai said that structural integrity and strength was a top priority when development of this new second-generation Genesis began six years ago.

As with many of its more premium rivals, high-strength steel features throughout the Genesis sedan’s body, with a focus on achieving top results in worldwide safety tests.

The record-breaking ANCAP score is drawn not only from the Genesis sedan’s performance in impact tests, but also the list of safety features equipped with the car.

“This is one of the first times we have seen the word ‘Standard’ listed against almost every safety feature on our checklist,” ANCAP Chairman Lachlan McIntosh said.

Standard inclusions with the Australian-delivered Genesis sedans will include:

  • nine airbags
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Electronic Brake Distribution
  • Electronic Stability Control
  • Autonomous Emergency Braking
  • Lane support system
  • Pre-safe systems
  • Reversing collision avoidance
  • Active lift bonnet
  • Emergency Stop Signal
  • LED daytime lights, and
  • Tyre pressure monitoring system.

The cost of the Genesis expected to start from around $55,000.
