Hyundai Smart Sense.

With Hyundai Smart Sense, our cutting-edge Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, you have a comprehensive range of the very latest safety and driving assist features available to you for added peace of mind. The following glossary will help you to find out more about the various features.

Driving Safety.

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA).

Enjoy the safety of automatic braking to help avoid collisions. FCA stops your car fast, even if you’re distracted. Utilising radar and/ or the front camera, the system scans the road ahead and alerts you to slowing or stopped vehicles, cyclists or pedestrians in your path – and automatically applies full braking power if you don’t react in time.

Basic Function.

FCA alerts you to slowing or stopped vehicles, cyclists or pedestrians in your path – and automatically applies full braking power if you don’t react in time.

Junction Turning (FCA-JT).

To protect you when turning left at an intersection, this system assists with emergency braking if there is a risk of collision with an oncoming vehicle.

Junction Crossing (FCA-JC).

Senses sideways-approaching vehicles at intersections and junctions and automatically assists with emergency braking if there is a risk of collision.

Evasive Steering Assist (FCA w/ESA).

FCA w/ ESA proactively assists with emergency steering to avoid a forward collision with other cars, pedestrians, or cyclists.

Lane-Change Side (FCA-LS).

When changing lanes, FCA-LS automatically assists with avoidance steering if there is a risk of collision with a preceding vehicle in the next lane.

Lane-Change Oncoming (FCA-LO).

When overtaking on roads that have two or more lanes, FCA-LO automatically assists with avoidance steering if there is a risk of collision with an oncoming vehicle.

Lane Keeping Assist (LKA).

LKA sends visual and audible alerts if you leave your lane without signalling and initiates subtle corrective steering assistance to steer you back.

Lane Following Assist (LFA).

When activated, it keeps the car centered in its lane at speeds up to 200 km/h on motorways and city streets.

Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA).

Warns when a vehicle is in your blind spot. If you begin to change lanes, applies differential braking to move the car back to original centered position.

Exiting a parallel parking spot.1

When exiting a parallel parking spot and there is a risk of collision with a rear side vehicle, BCA automatically assists with emergency braking.

Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW).

Warns you with audio and visual alerts when a vehicle is detected in your blind spot and you begin to change lanes.

Safe Exit Assist (SEA).

Detects vehicles approaching from behind, warns you and temporarily locks first and second-row doors, so passengers can only exit when it is safe.

Safe Exit Warning (SEW).

Detects vehicles approaching from behind, and provides you with visual and audio warnings, so that passengers can exit the vehicle when it is safe.

Rear Occupant Alert (ROA).

ROA perceives occupants in the rear seats and reminds the driver when they exit the vehicle so that nobody is accidentally forgotten, even sleeping kids or pets.

Rear Seat Alert.

If movement has been detected in the rear seats, the driver is notified when they open the door: a dashboard message pops up to “check the rear seats” along with an audio message. 

ROA Sensor.

If the driver ignores these messages and locks the vehicle from the outside, ultrasonic sensors on the ceiling automatically start to monitor indoor movement for 24 hours. If movement is detected, the driver is notified in three ways: car honks alarms and flashes emergency lights for 25 seconds; if equipped with Bluelink, a reminder is delivered to cellular devices.

ROA Radar.

The newest ROA system uses high resolution radar sensors. Radars can measure even minute movements of the chest and blood flow of passengers. So the system is sophisticated enough to distinguish adults, infants, and pets.

Intelligent Speed Limit Assist (ISLA).

Reads traffic signs using the front camera and warns if you are driving over the speed limit. Adjusts speed in combination with Smart Cruise Control to match the speed limit when activated.

Driver Attention Warning (DAW).

DAW analyses the driver’s attention level while driving. Provides a warning when signs of driver inattentiveness are detected, and recommends a rest if needed.

Blind-Spot View Monitor (BVM).

When a turn signal is used, the view of that side of your Hyundai is shown in the centre cluster for top visibility and zero blind spots.

High Beam Assist (HBA).

Detects vehicles and automatically switches to low beam. When no more vehicles are detected, it reactivates the high beams, maximising your range of vision.

Driving Convenience.

Smart Cruise Control (SCC).

More safety and less stress. Smart Cruise Control maintains a distance to the vehicle ahead and a speed set by the driver. If a slower vehicle appears ahead, it automatically adjusts the speed while maintaining the distance. 

Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go (SCC w/Stop & Go).

When equipped with Stop & Go, SCC can put your vehicle back in motion after it has stopped. If the vehicle ahead stops, the SCC will stop until the sensors detect the preceding vehicle move again. Very useful in congested traffic.

Smart Cruise Control 2 w/ Emergeny Stop (SCC2).

If the driver is recognized unresponsive (because the hands are off the wheel or the driver is not looking forward), SCC2 maintains the center of the lane and stops in the lane through deceleration control. Warnings are given inside and outside the car.

Smart Cruise Control-Machine Learning (SCC-ML).

SCC-ML uses machine learning to recognize your driving style. It then actively seeks to match it while in cruise control mode by adapting the distance to the vehicle ahead.

Navigation-based Smart Cruise Control-Curve (NSCC-C).2

The Curve function (NSCC-C) uses navigation data to predict incoming curves on the road, reduces the cruising speed, and, upon exiting the curve, returns the speed to the preset level.


Highway Driving Assist (HDA).

HDA maintains a set speed and distance from the vehicle ahead when driving on highways and helps centre the vehicle in the lane, even through a curve.

Highway Driving Assist II (HDA II).

As well as maintaining the set speed, following distance, and position at the center of the lane, HDA II detects and reacts to other cars entering the lane. HDA II will automatically decelerate to quickly regain the desired following distance.

Highway Driving Assist II w/HOD.

HDA II with Hands-on Detection (HOD) includes a sensor for improved hands on/off detection, lane centering, lane change and steering control performance. It changes the steering actuator control method to Steering Angle Control.

Leading Vehicle Departure Alert (LVDA).

This clever feature for city driving alerts the driver when the vehicle in front departs from an idle state, like at a traffic light or in a traffic jam.

Parking Safety.

Rear View Monitor (RVM).3

For safer parking, the situation in the rear of the vehicle is shown on the centre touchscreen when you shift into R or press the Parking/View button.

Surround View Monitor (SVM).

Tight parking garage? No problem. The surround view monitor gives you a 360-degree view of the area to make manoeuvring confined spaces easy and safer.

Parking Distance Warning (PDW).4

Parking made easier. Proximity sensors in the front and rear bumpers warn you if you're too close so you can avoid scratches and park safer.

Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW).

Detects and alerts you when cross-traffic vehicles are passing the rear of the vehicle, while backing out of perpendicular parking spaces.

Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA).

When reversing out of areas, the system warns you if vehicles are approaching from the side or behind and then assists with emergency braking.

Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist Reverse (PCA-R).

When reversing, if pedestrians or objects are detected in the rear, the system alerts you of a potential collision and will apply the brakes if a collision is imminent.

Parking Convenience.

Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA). 

Now you can remotely back into and drive forward out of a parking spot by pressing the forward/reverse button on the smart key – from outside the vehicle. No need to worry about opening your doors into your neighbor’s car. 

With the Entry version of RSPA, you align the car with the parking space, and exit. Once the doors are shut, press the forward/reverse button on the smart key to move the car as desired. 

Remote Smart Parking Assist II (RSPA II). 

With Full RSPA (RSPA II), the vehicle can remotely park itself in several positions such as parallel and diagonal to the pavement as well as perpendicularly back into and drive forward out of a parking spot – with you standing outside of the car.
