Standard SmartSense™ safety.
A generous suite of SmartSense™ advanced safety technologies features in every 2021 i30 hatchback, joined by additional systems in the Elite variant.
Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist - City/Urban/Interurban/Pedestrian/Cyclist.
Standard in 2021 i30 hatchback, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) utilises the front radar sensor and windshield-mounted camera to detect vehicles and pedestrians in front the vehicle.
If a potential collision is detected, the FCA system will sound a warning chime and display a warning in the Supervision cluster.
Additionally, FCA is capable of automatically applying the vehicle’s brakes in the case of a potential collision (where no driver intervention is detected after a FCA system warning).
Dependent on both the speed of the vehicle and the object detected, the system will either attempt to apply full braking to bring the vehicle to a complete stop or apply partial braking to reduce the severity of a collision.
Please see the table below for the operational speed range of the different FCA braking modes for various detected objects.
Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go (Automatic and DCT variants).
SCC utilises the front radar sensor to detect the speed and distance of vehicles ahead of i30. SCC then automatically maintains a safe distance to the vehicle ahead, up to a speed pre-set speed by the driver (between 30km/h and 180km/h).
The Stop & Go function allows SCC to work in stop/start traffic, bringing the vehicle to a complete stop when appropriate, and automatically (if within three seconds of stopping) accelerating it back to the original set speed.
If the vehicle is stationary for more than three seconds, SCC with Stop & Go will prompt the driver to continue cruise conditions via the steering wheel switches.
Lane Keeping Assist - Line.
Lane Keeping Assist – Line (LKA-L) system consists of two modes - Lane Departure Warning (LDW) mode, and Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) mode.
At speeds of 60km/h or above, LDW uses the windshield-mounted camera to detect lane markings and monitor the vehicle’s position in the lane.
Should the vehicle stray from the intended lane without indicators being activated, audible and visual warnings will be issued.
LKA can be activated at speeds of 60km/h or above where lane markings on both sides of the vehicle are detected. LKA helps prevent the vehicle from straying from the lane by providing steering intervention should the driver not react to warnings from the LDW system.
Both LKA & LDW are momentarily deactivated whenever indicators are active. Additionally, the driver must maintain control of the vehicle by holding the steering wheel at all times.
LKA & LDW can be activated via a long press of the Lane Keeping Assist / Lane Following Assist button the steering wheel.
Lane Following Assist.
Lane Following Assist (LFA) uses the front windshield-mounted camera to detect lane markers as well as vehicles ahead, and provides steering assistance to ensure the vehicle stays in the centre of the lane.
LKA & LDW can be activated by a long press of the Lane Keeping Assist / Lane Following Assist button the steering wheel, and is operational when lane markers are detected at speeds up to 180km/h.
Driver Attention Warning.
At speeds of 60 km/h or above, Driver Attention Warning (DAW) uses the windshield-mounted camera to monitor the vehicle’s position within the lane, whilst tracking steering/braking inputs and time since last break.
Should the system detect careless driving (such as sudden steering/braking inputs and/or inability to keep within the lane), the ‘Attention Level’ indicator on the cluster will continually decrease. Should the level decrease to a certain threshold, the DAW system will recommend that the driver takes a break.
The system now also features Leading Vehicle Departure Alert, which monitors the vehicle ahead when i30 is stopped in traffic. If the vehicle drives off, and the i30 driver fails to accelerate away, the system will sound a gentle chime to alert the potentially inattentive driver.
High Beam Assist.
Using the front windshield-mounted camera, High Beam Assist (HBA) scans the road ahead of i30, monitoring for street lights, as well as the headlights and taillights of vehicles in front. Upon detection, the system automatically adjusts headlight range, switching between high and low beam.
HBA is operational once the light switch is placed in the Auto position, with the lever pushed forward (away from the driver.)
Blind-Spot Collision Warning - Elite variant.
At speeds of 20km/h or above, Blind-Spot Collision warning (BCW) uses radar sensors on either side of the rear bumper to detect vehicles next to and diagonally behind the i30. If a vehicle is present in i30’s blind spot, BCW displays a visual alert in the exterior mirrors. If the driver proceeds to activate the corresponding indicator lights, a flashing visual warning is provided and an alert is sounded.
Additionally, the Lane Change Assist (LCA) feature scans for vehicles approaching rapidly from the rear, and uses the same BCW warning measures to alert the driver of rapidly approaching vehicles that may soon enter i30’s blind spot.
Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning - Elite variant.
Using the BCW system’s radar sensors, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW) monitors for traffic approaching on either side of the i30 when reversing out of perpendicular parking spaces. Should RCCW detect a vehicle approaching, an alert is sounded and a visual warning is displayed in the cluster.
