The news of Tiger Wood being involved in a horrific single-car accident took the whole world by surprise. We learnt he sustained serious injuries and a lot of people have been sending in their prayers towards the legendary golfer’s recovery.
Despite all these, little was known about the brand of car he was driving in the accident. From photos and videos shared online, we could see that Tiger Wood was driving a luxury Genesis Invitational SUV in Los Angeles. This unfortunate incident might have brought the luxury car brand into the spotlight. Can we say in a bad time?
From what we learnt, Tiger Wood suffered multiple injuries on his leg and was taken in for surgery after the accident. Mark Steinberg, who happens to be his agent, while confirming the accident, revealed that Woods was taken away from the wreck using the “Jaws of life”.
The American, who is considered one of the greatest golfers of all time, was in the Genesis GV80, a company that is under Hyundai. Also, the SUV is the only type from the luxury brand.
This story was also corroborated by Jarred Pellat, who is the spokesperson to the luxury car brand. The company had sent in their prayers, wishing the superstar speedy recovery.
The 2021 Genesis GV80 is sold for a starting price of $50,000. It comes with a 14.4-inch touchscreen (horizontal), placed on the center console and a digital instrument panel of 8 inches. The SUV offers ten airbags, evasive steering technology, interior camera that wakes the driver up and a forward-collision warning system.
It is said that the Genesis GV80 has been rated well by auto experts and critics and is expected to pose a serious challenge to the likes of Mercedes GLE, Grand Cherokee, Lincoln Aviator and BMW X5.
We wish him speedy recovery and we hope this incident doesn’t spoil the image of the newcomer in the luxury market.
