6-speed automatic transmission 6 gears are better than 5 – especially if the 6-speed automatic transmission is more compact, smoother and quieter than the 5-speed automatic transmission it replaces. And that’s just what Hyundai has done, adding an extra gear to boost fuel economy.

If the system senses the car is about to skid and risks spinning out of control, Electronic stability control (ESC) automatically intervenes, applying the brakes over individual wheels to prevent loss of directional control.

Lane keeping assist system (LKAS)

Designed primarily to alert drivers who are dozing off at the wheel.
