Vehicles have come a long way since the days when a seat belt was the most advanced safety feature. These days, new Hyundai cars here at Lester Glenn Hyundai Toms River are packed to the brim with a suite of advanced safety features. We know that if you haven’t driven a new vehicle in the past few years, learning how these features work can be intimidating. Luckily, our friendly team of dealers is happy to explain the function of these three essential safety features.

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist: Found in Hyundai vehicles like the 2019 Hyundai Sonata, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist detects a slowing or stopped vehicle in your path. When this happens, it warns you of a potential collision with an audio notification. If you don’t stop in time, it automatically applies the brakes to reduce the chance of a collision. Some Hyundai models also have a pedestrian detection component that can also detect pedestrians in your path and apply the brakes if necessary.

Driver Attention Warning: The Driver Attention Warning system monitors your driving patterns in order to detect drowsy or inattentive driving. Once the system has detected that the driver is drowsy, it alerts you with a sound cue coupled with a warning message on the instrument panel.

Safe Exit Assist: This new safety feature prevents your passengers from stepping onto the road when its radar detects a vehicle approaching from behind. If necessary, it will override attempts to deactivate the Electronic Child Safety Lock until it is safe for your child to open the door.

Head on over to Lester Glenn Hyundai Toms River to test out these Hyundai SmartSense safety features. We look forward to seeing you soon!
