Safety: The SUV of the Year surrounds you with protection

The editors of MotorTrend named the first-ever 2022 Genesis GV70 at Genesis of West Knoxville the SUV of the Year. Much of the honor is due to the GV70's many strengths, including its over-achieving performance, its stately yet assertive exterior design, its spacious interior and its remarkable best-in-America warranty. But a sizeable portion of the credit must go to the many safety features that create a higher level of security for all.

Forward Collision Avoidance Assist

The new 2022 GV70 deploys a sophisticated array of well-coordinated cameras as well as sensors for sonar and radar to detect hazards before you're even aware of them. The Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist teams with a system that monitors oncoming lane changes and junction turning as you drive around Knoxville or Maryville TN keeping track of vehicles ahead of you. This electronic choreography gives you advance notice of issues ahead.

This onboard sensing network can manage incoming data instantly, analyzing movement of other vehicles on the road ahead. The system can respond to potential accidents, unexpected lane changes and other events, proactively intervening to keep you and your passengers safe. In addition, it helps protect pedestrians and slower vehicles ahead of you on the highways around Sevierville and Oak Ridge TN.

The power to help you park safely

When you're backing out of a parking space, do you ever worry that someone might be about to walk behind you just as you're pulling out? Your new 2022 Genesis can address that issue very capably. It's equipped with Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist (Rear), known as PCA-R, helping this SUV to remain in constant surveillance mode to see and warn you of pedestrians or other vehicles you can't see, and then apply brakes if needed.

A clear view of your blind spot, appearing right before your eyes

Another common concern for responsible drivers is the blind spot on your right where other vehicles can approach in a way that's difficult to see. The Genesis GV70 places a live camera view of your blind spot in the instrument gauge cluster right in front of you. That means your blind spot is no longer so blind, now that you can clearly see an approaching vehicle and have confidence as you change lanes.

Lane Keeping Assist

With all the distractions inside and outside your vehicle, even very good drivers can discover they're inadvertently making an unsignaled, unintended lane departure. That can create a very real hazard for you and others around you. In the new Genesis GV70 at Genesis of Grayson, a camera mounted on the windshield keeps track of lane markings and initiates corrective steering when needed to keep you safely in your lane.

Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA)

While the PCA-R system is especially helpful in avoiding passengers walking behind you as you're reversing out of a parking space, this system is adept at detecting other vehicles crossing behind you that may be largely hidden by surrounding vehicles. The RCCA function sends out audio and visual warnings to alert you if another vehicle is about to enter your rear pathway out of the parking space and brake forcefully when needed to avert a collision.

National recognition for safety excellence

As the ultimate affirmation, the first-ever 2022 Genesis GV70 won honors from the national insurance organization that evaluates highway safety as one of the nation's elite Top Safety Pick+ vehicles. The evaluation process assesses a vehicle's effectiveness in avoiding collisions and other safety criteria, ranking the new 2022 Genesis GV70 as one of the safest vehicles in the country.

Reviews from Automotive Media

The GV70 doesn't have the same household name recognition, but it does deliver a refined look and a beautiful interior that are impressively upscale.
