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.
