Hyundai Top Safety Features
Now let’s examine some of the top safety features that helped Hyundai win nine IIHS Top Safety Pick awards in 2022.
Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection
When the system detects a vehicle or pedestrian in your path, it warns you of a potential collision. If you don’t begin stopping in time, the system may automatically apply the brakes.
Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist
If your Hyundai detects a vehicle in your blind spot while your turning signal’s on, it will alert you and may automatically apply the left or right front brake before you change lanes.
Blind-Spot View Monitor
When you use the turn signal before a lane change, the digital instrument cluster displays a live video feed of your blind spot from the side-view mirror cameras.
Lane Following Assist
Using the front-view camera to detect lane markers on the road, this feature assists the driver’s steering to help keep the vehicle centered inside the lane.
Lane Keeping Assist
Your Hyundai warns you through audio and visual cues if your vehicle drifts out of its driving lane without signaling. If necessary, it will gently apply corrective steering assistance to keep you inside the lane.
Driver Attention Warning
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 cluster.
High Beam Assist
Constantly turning your high beams off and on can be a hassle, which is why this thoughtful feature automatically does it for you. It can detect oncoming vehicles and toggle between high and low beams accordingly.
Highway Driving Assist
When actively engaged with Smart Cruise Control or Lane Following Assist, it automatically helps keep you centered in your lane and traveling at a safe distance behind the car ahead. It also can keep you driving at the right speeds, automatically setting your pace based on GPS and highway data.
Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist
When you’re going in reverse, it lets you know if its sensors detect a vehicle approaching from the left or right. It may even apply the brakes automatically if needed.
Safe Exit Assist
This pioneering innovation warns the driver when the vehicle is parked and its radar detects a vehicle approaching from behind. If necessary, it will override attempts to deactivate the Electronic Child Safety Lock until it’s safe for your child to open the door.
