Advanced Technology

Hyundai Elantra safety features also include an available invisible co-pilot: Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist technology to help you avoid accidents before they happen. Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection uses camera and radar sensors to detect when vehicles or pedestrians move into your path. If it senses a collision, then it will react for you if necessary; it can brake to a full stop from 5 to 50 mph. If it senses a person in your path, it can stop for you at speeds of 5 to 43 mph. This incredible level of automation helps protect you and your family if you don't react in time. This is a big reason the Elantra is a Top Safety Pick Plus.

Another exciting high-tech safety feature is available for the Limited trim: high-intensity discharge headlights with dynamic bending lights. Dynamic bending lights upgrade your level of driving by turning in same direction as your wheel-it instantly illuminates your path. Not only does dynamic lighting have a cool factor, but it's an innovative safety feature making night driving safer and easier.
