Stay Safe with Hyundai SmartSense

Hyundai SmartSense is our cutting-edge driver assistance system, built to provide you with more safety. From braking to avoid collisions, to detecting vehicles in your blind spot, the Kona Hybrid is constantly monitoring your environment to protect you from potential hazards while driving.

Hyundai i20 SmartSense Autonomous Emergency Braking

Lane Keep Assist (LKA)

The Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) uses the front camera to monitor the lines of the road. In case of an unintended lane departure, it will warn the driver and can apply counter steering torque to guide the car back to the lane.

Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with pedestrian and cyclist recognition

Optional on SE and Premium and standard on Premium SE, the AEB system uses a front mounted camera and radar sensor to monitor the traffic ahead. If the system detects a potential collision with a vehicle, pedestrian or cyclist, it will warn the driver, automatically slowing or stopping the vehicle if required.

Blind Spot Detection (BSD)

Optional on Premium and standard on Premium SE, the system informs the driver of vehicles in the blind spot and passing cars. It keeps the driver informed of cars that are following and potentially passing, but may be in a hard-to-see blind spot that can’t be easily viewed using the rear view mirror or wing mirrors. It informs drivers with a graphic in the wing mirror.

Smart Cruise Control (SCC)

This optional system can make driving easier and safer. At speeds higher than 5 mph, the Kona Hybrid uses the front-mounted radar sensor to monitor vehicles ahead and automatically maintains a pre-set speed and safe distance to the vehicle in front, by regulating the throttle and applying the brakes when needed.
