Hyundai Canada strives to engineer vehicles that are modern, efficient, affordable, attractive, and most of all, safe. With a series of advanced safety upgrades to their 2017 inventory, Hyundai has incorporated a suite of useful technologies that are guaranteed to keep drivers safe at all times. From built-in adaptive cruise control, emergency braking systems and blind-spot detection, Hyundai has covered every angle with this year’s models of cars, SUVs and cross-overs.
Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross-Traffic AlertNever worry about your rear vision and keep your eyes on the road with confidence, knowing you are protected from all angles. Hyundai’s available Blind Spot Detection is an advanced safety system that helps to detect vehicles in the driver’s blind spot. In reverse, the built-in Rear Cross-Traffic Alert identifies and warns you of other vehicles that are approaching from the side. Available on the 2017 Hyundai Elantra, Sonata, Sonata Hybrid, Sonata Plug-in Hybrid, Genesis, Tucson, Santa Fe Sport, and Santa Fe XL, drivers who use the Blind Spot Detection and Rear Traffic Alert systems will never have to worry about anything except the open road ahead.
Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
Using a forward camera and radar sensors, your Hyundai can quickly detect rapidly-closing speeds between you and other vehicles or pedestrians in your path. If grounds for a potential collision are detected, the Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection will launch audible and visual signals to the driver. If the driver fails to respond to avoid the impact, this system will automatically deploy full braking assistance at speeds under 80 KM/hr or 60 KM/hr to help avoid an accident. Available on the 2017 Hyundai Elantra, Sonata, Tucson, Santa Fe Sport and Santa Fe XL, Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection means your Hyundai will sense things big and small and work to keep you protected no matter where you are.
Adaptive Cruise ControlIn order to maintain a safe distance from vehicles in front of you, Hyundai’s Adaptive Cruise Control technology automatically and continuously adjusts your driving speeds. This feature can also bring your vehicle to a complete stop and automatically accelerate again without driver input. Available on the 2017 Hyundai Elantra, Sonata, Sonata Hybrid, Genesis, Santa Fe Sport and Santa Fe XL, Adaptive Cruise Control remembers your driving habits behind the wheel, and adjusts them as necessary for a safer, smoother ride.
Lane Departure Warning System with Lane Keep AssistIf your vehicle drifts outside of its lane without signalling while driving at speeds of 70 KM/hr or greater, the Lane Departure Warning System will issue audio and visual signals. Lane Keep Assist will provide steering assistance to maintain your place within the outlined driving lanes should your vehicle continue to approach a breach in the lane. Available on the 2017 Hyundai Elantra, Sonata, Sonata Hybrid, Genesis, Tucson, Santa Fe Sport, and Santa Fe XL, the Lane Departure Warning system with Lane Keep Assist keeps ensures you’ll always be in control no matter where the road takes you.
HID Headlights with Adaptive Cornering System
Never lose your way again. Hyundai’s High Intensity Discharge (HID) Headlights provide increased visibility through an intense white light. These advanced lighting systems also include an Adaptive Cornering System which allows the headlights to rotate alongside the direction of your steering wheel, which lets you illuminate the path ahead even better than your average headlights. Available on the 2017 Hyundai Elantra, Santa Fe Sport, Santa Fe XL, Genesis Coupe, Genesis, Sonata, and Sonata Hybrid, the HID Headlights let you take advantage of a safer, brighter nighttime drive while reducing energy on your vehicle.
