In total, Hyundai offers up 11 different safety systems as part of its overarching SmartSense suite. They are as follows:
Designed to prevent a collision, FCA alerts you to any slowing or stopped vehicles in your path, in addition to automatically braking if you are unable to respond or react in time. Opting for FCA with Pedestrian Detection takes this system a step further via your vehicle's forward camera and radar apparatus to detect and avoid pedestrians.
Worried about the potential risks that come with inattentive or drowsy driving? Then DAW is the safety feature for you. Created to detect fluctuations in your driving patterns that could be caused by the aforementioned issues, DAW recaptures your focus and helps you keep your eyes on the road via a sound cue and warning message that appears on the instrument panel.
Never worry again about other motorists lurking in your blind thanks to Hyundai's BCW system. From a visual alert that goes off when radar detects a vehicle in your blind spot to an audio warning that sounds when you attempt to merge into an occupied lane, this feature keeps you moving forward safely with ease.
Leave drifting between lanes in your rearview mirror for good with the power of LKA. Thanks to audio and visual cues, as well as subtle corrective steering assistance when necessary, this safety feature helps limit the chance of having your vehicle drift out of its lane without properly signaling.
Who says you constantly have to toggle your headlight settings up and down as you make your way along the roads of Long Island at night. With HBA at your command, your favorite Hyundai vehicle will thoughtfully dim and raise the intensity of your headlights as needed in accordance with current road conditions and oncoming traffic.
Nothing is scarier than opening your vehicle door out onto the road and having oncoming traffic fly past you. Thankfully, the SEA system prevents this potentially dangerous situation from ever occurring by sensing approaching vehicles and keeping your vehicle doors locked and closed until the coast is clear.
Keep a safe distance between you and the cars ahead by utilizing SCC from Hyundai. After setting your preferred speed, this feature uses radar to maintain an appropriate distance from the car ahead. If you opt for the SCC Stop & Go enhancement, your cruise control will intelligently reactivate if the vehicle in front of you begins to move again within three seconds of stopping.
Avoid the hassle and concern that comes with backing out of a parking spot via the power of RCCW. With access to multiple sensors, this tool can let you know if a vehicle is approaching from the left or the right as you exit a parking space – especially one with limited visibility.
The first of its kind in the industry, ROA ensures that you never accidentally leave a pet or child in the rear seating area of your vehicle. Should the sensors detect movement after you exit the vehicle, an alert will be sent via Blue Link to your smartphone, in addition to engaging the vehicle's horn and lights.
Designed to park your vehicle autonomously, Remote Smart Parking Assist helps your vehicle navigate into a parking spot on its own. Even if you are not in the vehicle, simply pressing the corresponding smart key button engages this feature and allows you to enjoy a taste of the future as your vehicle parks itself.
Leveraging GPS and highway data, all while working in conjunction with Smart Cruise Control and Lane Following Assist, the Highway Drive Assist feature is your "co-pilot" on the highways of Long Island that keeps you centered in your lane and traveling a safe distance behind the vehicle ahead of you.
Now that you are up to speed on all that the SmartSense suite of features has to offer, there is really only one question left to answer: How can you take advantage of this industry-leading approach to your safety on the roads of Long Island? Fortunately, the answer is quite simple.
