Comprehensive Look at Hyundai's Latest Features!

When it comes to safety and innovation, Hyundai is a leading brand that continues to impress. With their latest lineup of vehicles, Hyundai has introduced a range of advanced features and technologies designed to enhance the driving experience and prioritize the safety of both the driver and passengers. In this blog post, we will take a comprehensive look at some of the top features offered by Hyundai.


Hyundai SmartSense

One of the standout features of Hyundai vehicles is the Hyundai SmartSense suite. This comprehensive safety package includes several advanced driver assistance systems that work together to provide a safe and confident driving experience. Let's explore some of the key features included in the Hyundai SmartSense.


Driver Attention Warning

Driver fatigue is a serious issue that can compromise safety on the road. Hyundai addresses this concern with the Driver Attention Warning (DAW) system. By tracking the driver's attention, DAW can detect signs of fatigue or distraction and provide an alert to ensure the driver remains focused on the road.


Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection


Hyundai equips its vehicles with Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA), featuring Pedestrian Detection to prevent potential accidents. Using radar and camera sensors, this system can detect potential collisions with other vehicles or pedestrians in front of the car and automatically apply the brakes if necessary.


High Beam Assist


High Beam Assist (HBA) is a convenience feature that automatically adjusts the vehicle's headlights between high and low beams based on surrounding traffic conditions. This ensures optimal visibility without dazzling drivers in oncoming cars.


Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keeping Assist


To help prevent unintentional lane departures, Hyundai vehicles are equipped with Lane Departure Warning (LDW) systems. LDW uses sensors to monitor the vehicle's position within the lane and provides audible and visual alerts if the vehicle starts to drift out of the lane. In addition, Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) can intervene and make steering adjustments to bring the vehicle back into the lane if necessary.


Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning


Backing out of a parking space can be challenging, especially when there are other vehicles or pedestrians approaching from the sides. With Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW), Hyundai vehicles can detect approaching traffic from either side when reversing and provide an alert to the driver to prevent potential collisions.


Safety Superstructure

Hyundai's commitment to safety goes beyond advanced features. Their vehicles are built with a safety SUPERSTRUCTURE, a foundation that enhances rigidity and crash protection. This innovative design helps redirect and absorb energy in the event of a collision, thereby minimizing the risk of injury to occupants.


In recognition of Hyundai's dedication to safety, several 2022 Hyundai models have received prestigious safety awards. These achievements include 5 out of 5 stars for overall safety in the NHTSA 5-Star Overall Safety Ratings program for the following models: Kona, Palisade, Sonata, Sonata Hybrid, Elantra, Elantra Hybrid, Santa Fe, and Santa Fe Hybrid. 


Additionally, the 2022 Elantra/Elantra Hybrid, Sonata/Sonata Hybrid, Venue, and Santa Cruz have been named 2022 TOP SAFETY PICK, while the 2022 Nexo, Palisade, Tucson/Tucson Hybrid, and Santa Fe/Santa Fe Hybrid (built after July 2021) have been awarded the 2022 TOP SAFETY PICK+.



Hyundai vehicles are equipped with Navigation-Based Smart Cruise Control (NSCC), an intelligent feature that adapts the vehicle's speed to match changing road conditions. NSCC uses map data and GPS to automatically slow down the vehicle when entering a new speed limit zone or approaching curves in the road. Once the new speed limit or curvature is passed, NSCC seamlessly brings the vehicle back to the previously set speed.


Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA)


Blind spots can pose a significant risk when changing lanes. Hyundai addresses this concern with Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA). BCA uses sensors to detect vehicles in blind-spot areas and provides an alert to the driver. In addition, if the driver attempts to change lanes when a vehicle is detected in the blind spot, BCA can apply braking intervention to prevent a potential collision.


Blind-Spot View Monitor (BVM)


Hyundai offers the Blind-Spot View Monitor (BVM) to enhance visibility in the blind-spot areas further. When the turn signal is activated, BVM displays a live video feed from side-view cameras on the instrument cluster, providing a clear view of the blind spot area. This assists the driver in making safer lane changes.


Parking Assistance

Parking can be stressful, especially in tight spaces. Hyundai vehicles come equipped with advanced parking assistance features such as rearview cameras, parking sensors, and even automatic parking systems. These technologies provide drivers with enhanced visibility and guidance during parking maneuvers, making parking a breeze.


10-Air Bag System

To provide comprehensive protection in the event of a collision, Hyundai vehicles are equipped with a 10-Air Bag System. This system includes front airbags, front seat-mounted side-impact airbags, roof-mounted side-curtain airbags, and a driver's knee airbag. The 10-Air Bag System helps safeguard occupants by strategically deploying airbags based on the impact's severity and location.
