Lane Keeping Assist (LKA)
Your vehicle warns you through audio and visual cues. If your vehicle drifts out of its driving lane without signaling. It will gently apply corrective steering assistance to keep you inside the lane.
Standard on all trims.
*Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) will not work under all circumstances. It functions when it is able to detect painted lane markings. It cannot function if the lane markings cannot be seen clearly, if the lines are faded, or during dusk without headlights on, with snow, rain, sleet, dust, leaves or standing water on road, sudden changes in brightness such as shadows, tunnel exits/entrances, low sunlight angle causing reflections, multiple lane markings or criss-crossed lines, tar crack sealer and cracked or broken road surfaces. It also may not function on very rough roads, when walls, curbs or concrete barriers are close by, or if following another car too closely. Since it “sees” the lane markings using a camera in the upper windshield area, it is imperative this area be clear and free of blockage such as stickers, dirt, snow, tinting material, markings and labels. Avoid putting objects on the dashboard that may reflect light or images onto the system camera area. Lane Keeping Assist is not a substitute for safe driving practices, but is a supplemental assist only. The driver is responsible for always maintaining command and control of the vehicle and must keep hands on the wheel at all times. See Owner’s Manual for further details and limitations.
Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection (FCA-Ped)
When the forward camera and radar detect a vehicle or pedestrian in your path, it warns you of a potential collision. If you don’t begin stopping in time, the system will automatically apply emergency braking.
*Standard on all trims. The Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection (FCA-Ped) is intended to be a supplement to safe driving practices. The system is not designed to detect certain stationary objects such as trees or poles, and may not detect all vehicles or pedestrians under certain conditions. The system is a driver assistance system and is not a substitute for safe driving. The driver is responsible for being attentive and maintaining control of the vehicle, and should not wait for the system’s alerts before braking as there may not be sufficient time to brake safely. See Owner’s Manual for further details and limitations.
Driver Attention Warning (DAW)
To help prevent potential accidents, this system monitors your driving patterns to detect drowsy or inattentive driving. Once detected, it alerts you with a sound cue coupled with a warning message on the instrument panel.
*Standard on all trims. Driver Attention Warning (DAW) is only a warning to inform the driver of a potential lack of driver attention or drowsiness. It does not detect and provide an alert in every situation. It is the driver’s responsibility to remain alert at all times. See Owner’s Manual for further details and limitations.
Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA)
If your Hyundai detects a vehicle in your blind spot while you’re turning signal’s on, it will alert you with an audible and visual warning and also automatically apply brakes, if necessary.
*Standard on SEL, SEL Premium, and Limited trims. Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA) assists the driver by warning of other cars in the blind spot region. It senses the rear side territory of the vehicle when it is traveling over 20 mph. There are limitations to the function, range, detection and clarity of the system. It will not detect all vehicles or objects in the blind spot. Its operation depends on the size, distance, angle and relative speed difference between your car and other cars. BCA may not operate if sensors are obscured in any way. Do not rely exclusively on BCA. BCA is a supplemental system and the driver must still be attentive and exercise caution when driving. It is important to always signal, look over your shoulder and through your mirrors before changing lanes. It is the driver’s responsibility to be aware of the surroundings and ensure it is clear before changing lanes or directions. See Owner’s Manual for further details and limitations.
Rear Occupant Alert (ROA)
Reminds you to check the backseat area to ensure a child or pet isn’t accidentally left inside after you park.

When the vehicle is parked and the engine has been turned off, the Rear Occupant Alert can help to alert the driver if the rear door(s) have been opened at any point after the vehicle was unlocked at the beginning of the journey. Upon turning the engine off, Rear Occupant Alert will provide a visual alert on the instrument cluster. Rear Occupant Alert is not a substitute for driver attentiveness. Never leave a child unattended in a vehicle. See Owner’s Manual for further details and limitations.
Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go (SCC)
While traveling at a speed set by you, it uses radars to maintain a safe distance from the car ahead. When your Hyundai slows down to 6 mph or less, the cruise control automatically turns off. The cruise control also intelligently reactivates if the vehicle in front of you starts moving again within 3 seconds of stopping.
*Standard on Limited trim. Smart Cruise Control (SCC) is not a collision avoidance or warning device. SCC is for highway use only and should not be used in poor weather, heavy or varying traffic, or on winding or slippery roads. Driver remains responsible to slow or stop the vehicle to avoid a collision. See Owner’s Manual for further details and limitations.
When you’re going in reverse, it lets you know if its sensors detect a vehicle approaching from the left or right. It will even apply the brakes automatically if needed.
*Standard on SEL, SEL Premium, and Limited trims. Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA) can alert the driver of a potential hazard by providing an audible warning and/or applying braking. RCCA is active when the vehicle is in reverse and operating at low speeds. Never rely exclusively on RCCA. RCCA cannot prevent all collisions and may not provide alerts or braking in all conditions. Always look over your shoulder and use your mirrors to confirm rear clearance. There are limitations to the function, detection, range and clarity of the system. See Owner’s Manual for further details and limitations.
Highway Driving Assist (HDA)
When you’re using Smart Cruise Control and Lane Following Assist, this technology automatically helps keep you centered in your lane and traveling at a safe distance from the car ahead. It also keeps you driving at the right speeds, setting your pace based on GPS and highway data.
*Standard on Limited trim. Highway Driving Assist (HDA), when used in conjunction with Lane Following Assist and Smart Cruise Control, is for highway use only and can help keep the vehicle centered in its lane while maintaining a safe distance from the vehicle ahead only when the lane markings are clearly visible on the road and should not be used in poor weather, heavy or varying traffic, or on winding or slippery roads. HDA will not work under all circumstances and will not prevent loss of control. Driver remains responsible to slow or stop the vehicle to avoid a collision. See Owner’s Manual for further details and limitations.
Lane Following Assist (LFA)
