Hyundai Santa Fe: Driving Safety / Safe Exit Assist (SEA)

Hyundai Santa Fe (TM) 2019-2024 Owner's Manual / Driver assistance system / Driving Safety / Safe Exit Assist (SEA)

After the vehicle stops, when an approaching vehicle from the rear area is detected as soon as a passenger opens a door, Safe Exit Assist will warn the driver with a warning message and an audible warning to help prevent a collision.

In addition, when the electronic child safety lock button is in the LOCK position and an approaching vehicle from the rear area is detected, the electronic child safety lock button will not unlock even if the driver presses the button to prevent the rear doors from opening.


Warning timing may vary depending on the speed of the approaching vehicle.
