    ADVANCED SAFETY TECHNOLOGY

    •  Automatic Emergency Braking — A Hyundai first: Genesis employes automatic braking
       when it detects a slower or stopped vehicle ahead: This system utilizes the Smart Cruise
       Control system (radar) as well as the camera from the Lane Keep Assist


  • Haptic Steering Warning System — A
        Hyundai first: turned on or off by Lane Keep
        Assist and Blind Spot Detection switch; alerts
        drivers with a vibration through the steering
        wheel due to inadvertent lane departure or blind
        spot detection with turn signal



  • Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) — Monitors both broken and solid lanes on the
        highway using a camera mounted near the interior mirror; at speeds above 43 mph, LDWS
        alerts the driver when the vehicle leaves the lane without using the turn signal by "shaking"
         the steering wheel and providing an audio and visual warning
         — Bad weather and skid marks on the road may cause a false indicator
         — System can be turned on or off with a switch

  • Lane Keep Assist: Detects lane departure and applies slight corrective steering measures
        to keep vehicle from drifting out of lane; provides haptic feedback through steering wheel
        vibration when vehicle departs the lane
        — Driver can set the steering assistance level

  • Blind Spot Detection (BSD): Detects vehicles
        in the driver's blind spot; provides driver
        with an audio and visual alert when an
        obstruction is detected
        — A visual alert can also be displayed on
            vehicles equipped with Heads-up Display
            (segment first)

  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert: Detects vehicles in
       the rear cross path and alerts the driver
       when an obstruction is detected

  • Lane Change Assist: Provides a warning of a
        vehicle that is rapidly approaching from the rear

  • Smart Cruise Control: Radar assisted, automatically maintains a preset distance between
       vehicles at a pre-selected speed: SCC operates like regular cruise control when there are no
       other vehicles in front
       — When there is another vehicle in front, SCC engages the brakes automatically and slows
           down the vehicle to maintain speed with the vehicle in front while retaining the preset
           distance
       — Driver can select one of four distance settings
       — Includes Stop/Start Function. When activated, Genesis will automatically come to a
           complete stop when vehicle ahead stops. The driver does not need to engage the brake.
       — The vehicle will then restart automatically if the vehicle ahead starts within 3 seconds.
           After 3 seconds, the Genesis can resume speed by tapping the accelerator pedal or
           pressing the Resume button on the steering wheel

  • High-Intensity Discharge (HID) Headlights: With LED turn signal indicators; more
       effectively illuminate the road at night; Includes:
        — Adaptive Front Lighting System (AFLS) with auto-leveling and automatic headlights. Lights
            point into a turn using steering angle sensors for added illumination of the road
       — High Beam Assist: Automatically switches from high to low beams when an oncoming
           vehicle is detected or when approaching another vehicle

  • Electronic Parking Brake (EPB): Replaces hand or foot pedal parking brake; EPB releases
        when the transmission is shifted out of Park.
       — Automatic Vehicle Hold: Assists the driver at a stop by holding the vehicle on an incline
           or decline; releases when accelerator is applied

  • Front and Rear Parking Assist System: Sensors in the front and rear bumpers assist as
       the driver parks the Genesis.

  • Dual power-folding heated side mirrors: With turn signal indicators and approach
       lamps; can be operated by the interior door-mounted switch or with the Proximity Key lock
       and unlock buttons.
