Junction Turning function will help avoid a collision with an oncoming vehicle in an adjacent lane when turning left at a crossroad with the turn signal on by applying emergency braking.

Detecting sensor

Refer to the picture above for the detailed location of the detecting sensors.


Take the following precautions to maintain optimal performance of the detecting sensor:

  • Never disassemble the detecting sensor or sensor assembly, or apply any impact on it.
  • If the detecting sensors have been replaced or repaired, have your vehicle inspected by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.
  • Never install any accessories or stickers on the front windshield, or tint the front windshield.
  • Exercise extreme caution to keep the front view camera dry.
  • Never place any reflective objects (for example, white paper, mirror) over the dashboard. Any light reflection may prevent Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist from functioning properly.
  • Do not place any objects near the front windshield or install any accessories on the front windshield. It can affect the performance of the defogging and defrosting function of the climate control system, which may prevent the Driver Assistance systems from operating.
  • Do not apply license plate frame or objects, such as a bumper sticker, film or a bumper guard, near the front radar cover.
  • Always keep the front radar and cover clean and free of dirt and debris. Use only a soft cloth to wash the vehicle. Do not spray pressurized water directly on the sensor or sensor cover.
  • If unnecessary force has been applied to the radar or around the radar, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist may not properly operate even though a warning message does not appear on the cluster. Have the vehicle be inspected by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.
  • Use only genuine parts to repair or replace a damaged front radar cover. Do not apply paint to the front radar cover.
