Small overlap front: driver-side

Rating applies to 2018-24 models

Tested vehicle: 2019 Genesis G70 2.0T 4-door

The Genesis G70 was introduced in the 2019 model year. The G70 is derived from the G80, but is smaller and lighter. Driver-side small overlap frontal ratings are assigned by the Institute based on a test conducted by Hyundai as part of frontal crash test verification. The ratings also apply to the structurally similar Kia Stinger, which was introduced in the 2018 model year.
