New to the third generation i30 is Hyundai’s comprehensive SmartSense™ driver assistance package offering significant passive and active safety technology upgrades.
Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) and Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
Forward Collision Warning (FCW) utilises the front radar sensor and windshield-mounted camera to detect vehicles and pedestrians in front the vehicle. FCW is active above 10km/h and up to 64km/h (pedestrians) and 180km/h (vehicles). If a potential collision is detected, the FCW system sounds an audible warning chime and displays a visual warning in the Supervision cluster.
Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) works in conjunction with FCW to automatically apply the vehicle’s brakes in a potential collision (where no driver intervention is detected after a FCW system warning). AEB is active above 10km/h and will attempt to bring the vehicle to a complete stop if activated up to 64km/h (pedestrians) or 80km/h (vehicles). Between 80-180 km/h AEB slows down the vehicle in order to reduce the severity of the collision.
AEB and FCW is standard on SR (DCT only), Elite and Premium models.
Blind Spot Detection (BSD) with Lane Change Assist (LCA)
Blind Spot Detection (BSD) operates above 30km/h and uses radar sensors on either side of the rear bumper to detect vehicles travelling next to the new i30 or diagonally behind it. If a vehicle is present in the i30’s blind spot, BSD displays a visual alert in the exterior mirrors. If the driver proceeds to activate the corresponding indicator lights, a visual warning in the side mirror flashes and an audible alert sounds.
Standard on SR, SR Premium, Elite, and Premium variants, Lane Change Assist (LCA) scans for vehicles approaching rapidly from the rear, and uses the same BSD warning measures to alert the driver of vehicles entering the i30’s blind spot at a higher rate of speed. BSD and LCA is standard on SR, Elite, and Premium models.
Driver Attention Alert (DAA)
At 64km/h or above, Driver Attention Alert (DAA) uses the windshield-mounted camera to
continually monitor the vehicle’s position within the lane. It also tracks steering inputs, brake pedal inputs, as well as time since the last driver break. Should the system detect careless driving – such as sudden steering/braking inputs and/or inability to keep within a lane – the ‘Attention Level’ display on the cluster continually decreases until the DAA system recommends a driver break. DAA is standard on SR (DCT only), Elite, and Premium models.
Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS).
All-new i30’s three-mode Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) incorporates Lane Departure Warning (LDW) mode, Standard LKAS mode, and Active LKAS mode.
At 64km/h or above, LDW monitors the vehicle’s lane position using the windshield-mounted camera to detect lane markings. Should the vehicle stray from the intended lane without indicators being activated, an audible and visual warning will be sounded.
LKAS also can be activated at 64km/h or above where lane markings on both sides of the vehicle are detected. LKAS features two modes (Standard & Active) to help prevent the vehicle from straying from the lane. Standard LKAS mode provides steering intervention if the vehicle is about to leave the lane, while Active LKAS mode provides earlier steering intervention to help the vehicle stay in the centre of the lane.
Both LKAS and LDW are momentarily deactivated whenever indicators are active. Additionally, the driver must maintain control of the vehicle by holding the steering wheel. LKAS is standard on SR (DCT only), Elite, and Premium models.
Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)
Using the BSD system’s radar sensors, Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) monitors for traffic approaching on either side of the i30 when reversing out of perpendicular parking spaces. If an approaching vehicle is detected, RCTA sounds an audible warning, and displays a visual warning in the instruments cluster. RCTA is standard on SR, Elite, and Premium models.
Smart Cruise Control (SCC)
When activated, Smart Cruise Control (SCC) uses front radar sensors to detect the speed and distance of vehicles travelling ahead of the i30. SCC then automatically maintains a safe distance to the vehicle ahead, up to a pre-set speed by the driver (between 30km/h – 180km/h).
SCC also functions in stop/start traffic, bringing the vehicle to a complete stop when appropriate, and automatically (if within three seconds) resuming the original set speed without driver intervention. If the vehicle is stationary for more than three seconds, SCC prompts the driver to resume cruise conditions by pressing the steering wheel switch. SCC is standard on SR (DCT only), Elite, and Premium models.
Emergency Stop Signal (ESS)
Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) helps warn surrounding traffic when emergency braking on the i30 is detected. The system flashes the rear brake lights whilst braking, and automatically activates the hazard lights once the vehicle has stopped.
Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) warns the driver of any abnormal tyre pressures and displays pressure read-outs for individual tyres. It is standard on all i30 grades.
