What Is Hyundai Forward Collision-Avoidance?

Hyundai Forward Collision-Avoidance is an advanced system designed to outright prevent or to reduce the effects of a forward collision. By using a high-resolution camera to scan the road, the system will alert drivers and if needed apply the brakes automatically to avoid a collision. So whether you're in the city or on the freeway, Hyundai Forward Collision-Avoidance system gives an added layer of frontal protection for everyday driving.

Many new vehicles sold today have proximity or radar sensors built-in to the front and rear. These tiny sensors can scan to the front and rear of the vehicle, looking for large objects or potential hazards. Unfortunately, however, this functionality stops above 5 MPH. Carmakers like Hyundai have since advanced this technology, developing it to work not only while parking, but at freeway speeds, too. By combining the low-speed radar sensors, and high-speed camera systems, Hyundai Forward Collision-Avoidance gives you collision protection at both low and high speeds. Best of all, you can customize the warning settings to your preferred level, with individual settings for Early, Normal, and Late.

How to Activate Forward Collision-Avoidance

  1. With the ignition on, press the Mode button on the right side of your steering wheel. For reference, the Mode button will look like a stack of papers. Keep pressing this button until your see User Setting on your instrument display.
  2. Navigate to Driver Assistance and select Forward Collision-Avoidance. Make sure the box next to Forward Collision-Avoidance is now checked.
  3. From the same menu, navigate to Forward Collision Warning and select from Late, Normal, and Early. Early is best for high-speed travel, and Late is best for city driving.
