Safety

Cutting-edge safety.

Nothing’s more important than the safety of your loved ones, so we gave the Kona Electric Series II an upgrade with advanced driver assistance features from Hyundai SmartSense™.

Smart Cruise Control (SCC)

Cruise control that not only maintains a speed, but also slows and even stops to meet a pre-set distance to the car in front.

Forward Collision-Avoidance (FCA)

Maintain a safe stopping distance with cars, bikes and pedestrians. First a warning will be sounded followed by braking intervention.

Blind-spot Collision Avoidance (BCA)

When driving at a speed of 30km/h or higher, the BCA function will alert the driver to vehicles that enter the blind-spot and will even provide intervention if required.

Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

Having the right tyre pressure is more than just good for your tyres and fuel economy – it’s a safety issue too. The Kona’s Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) displays the pressure for each individual tyre on the instrument cluster, warning the driver if pressure drops.

Electronic Stability Control (ESC)

In an emergency manoeuvre, Electronic Stability Control (ESC) helps keep you on track, while Hyundai’s Traction Control System (TCS) monitors your grip, reducing wheel spin so that you can accelerate on slippery or uneven road surfaces.

High Beam Assist (HBA)

LED high beams and low beams automatically adjust to meet the needs of the environment and surrounds. (Limited model.)

Safe Exit Assist (SEA)

Safe Exit Assist blocks attempts to disengage the child safety lock and prevents the rear door from opening when it is unsafe to do so.

Front & Rear Park Assist

The Kona thinks of everything. To help with parking in tight spots, four ultrasonic sensors at the front (Elite only) and rear of the Kona are automatically activated when you select reverse, giving an audible warning if and where objects are detected.

Driver Attention Warning (DAW)

A driver protection feature which helps monitor driving patterns in order to detect reckless or fatigued driving and prevent potential accidents. The system analyses various vehicle signals such as steering angle, steering torque, vehicle's positioning in the lane and driving time. If the system detects inattentive driving patterns, an audible and visual alert on the display panel will bring this to the driver’s attention. 

 

Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) with Lane Following Assist (LFA)

LKA/LFA keep you safely centered within the lane using its front view camera to monitor lane markers. On detecting an unintentional lane departure, a warning is triggered and, if necessary, LKA will automatically provide corrective steering input to keep you within the lane.

Hyundai Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS)

The usage of advanced high-strength steel alloy has been expanded to 51 percent of the body structure. To attain unprecedented levels of structural rigidity, critical components were fabricated using advanced hot stamping technology.
