What Is Hyundai Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance?

Hyundai Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance is a high-tech safety system that can detect oncoming vehicles when reversing. By using sensors mounted at the rear of the vehicle, this system helps avoid and prevent rear collisions when backing up, even in low visibility.

Parking lots and driveways are some of the most high-risk areas for low-speed collisions. From increased distractions, poor visibility, and high traffic, these areas can be stressful to navigate. Fortunately with Hyundai's Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance system, rear-end collisions can be significantly reduced while backing up. Now although all new cars today feature a backup camera as standard, they can only help see what is directly behind you, leaving you vulnerable to vehicles coming from the left or right. By using advanced scanners, Hyundai's rear-traffic alert system can detect oncoming traffic up to 65-feet away, giving an early-warning to help prevent a collision. If an oncoming vehicle is detected, the system will play an audio alert, as well as display a "Brake Now" message on the instrument cluster. For added safety, this system can even apply the brakes automatically to prevent an imminent collision.
