Safety concerns rising about Hyundai Genesis in Korea
Hyundai Genesis got into fatal accident, none of airbag deployed. The car fishtailed in rain, and hit a stone monument on its side. The driver was wearing the seatbelt, however, none of airbags deployed and the driver was killed. The car was fully loaded with 8 airbags, including side curtain. Hyundai rep says "Airbags deploy only if the impact was within 30 degree angle from the sensor at over 30kph (19mph)". In other words, the rep is saying that the airbag was not deployed because the impact was not within 30 degree angle from the sensor and/or slower than 19mph, despite the car is severely damaged (especially on its side), obviously totaled and the driver with seatbelt on was killed. This could be a 'perfect storm' not to fire any of the airbag though. However, the issue is growing up in Korea as well as concerns regarding Hyundai Genesis' safety.
