The latest advancements in safety
We’ve loaded Santa Fe with brilliant safety features inside and out. These available features include Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist. All in all, features that go beyond standard because there’s nothing standard about our commitment to safety.
Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
The Automatic Emergency Braking system uses both a camera and radar sensor. If a crash is imminent and the driver does not react, the system deploys Automatic Emergency Braking.* The system can even apply full brake-force stopping power from 5 to 50 mph. When a pedestrian is detected, full stopping power is automatically applied from 5 to 43 mph.*Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) is designed to detect vehicles whose taillights are directly in front of the Santa Fe. AEB will not detect objects other than cars. AEB initiates full braking at speeds between 5 and 50 mph. AEB is not a substitute for safe driving. See Owner’s Manual for details and limitations.
Listed below are the conditions referenced in the owner’s manual where the system may not detect a pedestrian:
· The pedestrian is not fully captured by the camera sensor, or the pedestrian does not walk in the upright position
· The pedestrian moves very fast
· The pedestrian abruptly appears in front
· The pedestrian wears clothes in the color similar to the background
· The outside is too bright or too dark
· The vehicle drives at night or in the darkness
· There is an item similar to a person’s body structure
· The pedestrian is small
· The pedestrian has impaired mobility
· It is difficult to distinguish the pedestrian from the surroundings
· The sensor recognition is limited
· There is a group of pedestrians
Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist*
This available radar-based system helps detect when a vehicle is in the driver’s blind spot and provides both an audible and a visual alert to help keep you aware as you move down the road. When reverse gear is selected, Rear Cross-traffic Alert helps identify and warn the driver of vehicles approaching from the side. Lane Change Assist measures the closing speed of an approaching vehicle in the adjacent lane to determine if changing lanes is safe and if it’s not, gives the driver an audible and visual warning.*Blind Spot Detection assists the driver by warning of other cars in the blind spot region. It senses the rear side territory of the vehicle when it is traveling over 20 mph. Lane Change Assist provides an audible and visual alert if the turn signal is activated and another vehicle in the blind spot is sensed. The turn signals must be activated for the Lane Change Assist to function. There are limitations to the function, range, detection and clarity of the system. It will not detect all vehicles or objects in the blind spot. Its operation depends on the size, distance, angle and relative speed difference between your car and other cars. Blind Spot Detection and Lane Change Assist may not operate if sensors are obscured in any way. Do not rely exclusively on Blind Spot Detection. Blind Spot Detection is a supplemental system and the driver must still be attentive and exercise caution when driving with it. It is important to always signal, look over your shoulder and through your mirrors before changing lanes. It is the driver’s responsibility to be aware of the surroundings and ensure it is clear before changing lanes or directions. Blind Spot Detection is only meant to assist the driver in these responsibilities. See Owner’s Manual for further product details and limitations.
The Rear Cross-traffic Alert system is designed to notify drivers of approaching cross-traffic behind the vehicle. When a vehicle is detected, it provides an audible warning and visual display warning. Rear Cross-traffic Alert is a supplemental system and the driver must still exercise extreme caution when backing up. Drivers must always turn and view oncoming traffic before backing up.
Rear Cross-traffic Alert is active when the vehicle is in reverse and backing at a speed less than 6 mph. It may not detect all vehicles, depending on the size, angle, distance and speed of the other vehicle. In addition, Rear Cross-traffic Alert does not detect stationary objects or slow moving objects near the car, including pedestrians (including children), shopping carts, bicycles or baby strollers. The sensor will not function if foreign material, bicycle racks, luggage carriers, bumper stickers, mud or snow blocks it. Please see Owner’s Manual for additional information.
Rear parking sensors
Along with the standard rearview camera, Santa Fe’s available rear parking sensors* make backing up easier. Sensors in the rear bumper give you an audible warning that increases in frequency and tone as you get closer to objects it detects in the area behind your vehicle.*The optional Parking Assistance System is a supplemental system and not a substitute for proper parking and/or backing-up procedures. The system is designed to audibly warn the driver of objects 39 inches in front of the vehicle or 47 inches behind the vehicle. When active, the system operates when you are in reverse at up to 6 mph and moving forward at up to 12 mph. System may not detect every object in front or behind you. Always check your surroundings before moving the vehicle. When backing up, always look over your shoulder and use the rearview camera and mirrors to confirm clearance. System effectiveness depends on many factors. See your Owner's Manual for details.
Lane Departure Warning
Drift outside your lane without signaling and this available system is designed to inform you with an audible and a visual cue. It turns technology into a tool that helps drivers maintain vehicle control and lane positioning.*Lane Departure Warning will not work under all circumstances. It functions when it is able to detect painted lane markings. It cannot function if the lane markings cannot be seen clearly, if the lines are faded, or during dusk without headlights on, with snow, rain, sleet, dust, leaves or standing water on road, sudden changes in brightness such as shadows, tunnel exits/entrances, low sunlight angle causing reflections, multiple lane markings or criss-crossed lines, tar crack sealer and cracked or broken road surfaces. It also may not function on very rough roads, when walls, curbs or concrete barriers are close by, or if following another car too closely. Since it “sees” the lane markings using a camera in the upper windshield area, it is imperative this area be clear and free of blockage such as stickers, dirt, snow, tinting material, markings and labels. Avoid putting objects on the dashboard that may reflect light or images onto the system camera area.
