5 Must-Have Safety Features on the First-Ever Hyundai Kona


With new driving assist technologies emerging every model year, advanced vehicle safety features have become a must-have for car shoppers, and the first-ever Hyundai KONA doesn’t disappoint.

The KONA’s safety features are designed to help make roads safer by monitoring the vehicle’s surroundings, warning of potential dangers, and even applying autonomous technology to correct human errors. Here are some of the best safety features the KONA has to offer:

Driver Attention Warning 

A feature only recently introduced in top-of-the-line luxury cars, the Hyundai KONA’s Driver Attention Warning feature is one shoppers won’t find on any other vehicle in its class. Designed to help keep the driver alert behind the wheel, the KONA monitors and analyzes driving patterns and will signal an audible alert and visual message on the instrument cluster if it detects driver fatigue or inattention. By suggesting that the driver should take a break when necessary, the KONA helps ensure the driver is operating the vehicle safely, with full attention.

Blind-Spot Collision Warning

Giving drivers the opportunity to react to what they can’t see, available Blind-Spot Collision Warning assists the driver by indicating when a vehicle enters their blind spot with a yellow indicator light. If the driver attempts to change lanes while the vehicle detects a car in their blind spot, an audible alert and a flashing indicator light will warn the driver of a possible collision.

Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning

The Hyundai KONA has its driver’s back when reversing, with the Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning feature, designed to notify drivers of approaching cross-traffic behind the vehicle. When in reverse, the KONA’s rear sensors actively scan the area and notify the driver with an audible and visual warning when it detects a vehicle crossing its rear path. This feature gives the driver peace of mind by assisting in reversing, especially in low-visibility areas with potential oncoming traffic.

Lane Keeping Assist

To improve safety for the KONA driver as well as other drivers on the road, Hyundai offers available Lane Keeping Assist that helps keep the KONA positioned safely in the center of its lane. If the driver has a lapse in attention and drifts from the center of their lane without signaling, Lane Keeping Assist will kick in and apply corrective steering assistance for the driver.

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection

Another safety feature that can potentially save lives, the KONA’s Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection constantly monitors the vehicle’s driving path for other vehicles and pedestrians. If the KONA senses an oncoming collision with a person or another vehicle, it will alert the driver as it applies the break automatically – a must-have feature in the world of advancing safety technologies.
