Further autonomous technology comes in the form of the Stop & Go function that can bring all-new GV60 to a stop in traffic and then accelerate away again without any driver intervention.



This system is further enhanced on all-new GV60 by its integration with the satellite navigation, using mapping data to analyse the road ahead and check that your cruising speed is appropriate on motorways and dual carriageways. If it detects an obstacle such as a sharp bend up ahead, the car will automatically decelerate to keep your speed within safe limits, before accelerating back up to your selected speed once it is safe to do so.



The Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) not only reduces the risk of collision with stationary vehicles in the same lane, it also features Junction Turning and Junction Crossing Functions. In addition, the Evasive Steering Assist will actively help turn the car away from a potential collision.



The Multi-Collision Brake (MCB) automatically activates the brake if the driver temporarily loses control of the vehicle after a first collision. The Pre-Active Front Seat Belt protects passengers by fastening the seat belt in advance when encountering a dangerous situation.



Like all Genesis models, a front centre airbag is fitted as standard. Located in the driver’s seat on the centre console side, this airbag deploys in just 0.03 seconds in the event of a side collision to help prevent the two front passengers from colliding with each other. In total, all-new GV60 features eight airbags as standard.



Another technological highlight is the Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA), which allows you to remotely park in, or leave, a tight space simply by pressing the button on the key fob. Activated from outside the vehicle, it works for both parallel and perpendicular parking.




All-new GV60’s state-of-the-art, advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) include the availability of:



    Highway Driving Assist II (HDA II): This system helps assist the driver in a wider variety of situations than before, including during lane change maneuvers when the turn signal is used, and when others merge in front of you.

    Smart Cruise Control with Machine Learning (SCC-ML): A world first, SCC-ML incorporates artificial intelligence (AI) within the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) feature that helps the car to independently learn the driving characteristics of its driver.

    Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA): This system may help automatically bring all-new GV60 to a stop in certain situations where there is a risk of collision with an approaching vehicle detected on the left or right side of the intersection. GV60 may also help detect potential collision risks in certain situations where a pedestrian is sensed in close proximity to the vehicle while in motion, for example.

    Blind-Spot Collision Avoidance Assist (BCA): BCA is essentially a Blind Spot Monitor with active capabilities. BCA helps reduce the chance of potential impact with a moving vehicle and may alert the driver if a vehicle is detected in the driver’s blind-spot

    Lane Follow Assist (LFA) - Helps maintain vehicle position in the center of its lane by recognizing both lane markers and vehicles traveling ahead

    Safe Exit Assist with Power Child Lock Function (SEA)

    Junction Turning (JT) — Automatically applies the brakes if an oncoming vehicle is detected in the opposite lane when making a left turn at a junction.

    Junction Crossing (JC) — Automatically applies the brakes if a vehicle crossing from the left or the right is detected when entering a junction.

    Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Avoidance-Assist (RCCA) — Warns driver of vehicles coming from the left or right while backing up and automatically brakes if a collision seems imminent



*Not available in all markets

**Available from Q4 2022
