Hyundai Sonata Safety Features

So, why will the 2021 Hyundai Sonata safety ratings meet or exceed the high standard of the 2020 model? Each Sonata is equipped with the Hyundai SmartSense® system to protect Round Rock drivers from the unexpected on the roads. Driver assistive features like Blind-Spot monitoring and Highway Drive Assist act as a second set of eyes, so you don’t miss a thing – even on the busiest Cedar Park mornings! Here is a sampling of the fantastic safety features available for 2021:

  • Remote Smart Parking Assist: No need to sweat while pulling into a tricky parking spot. Your Sonata will practically park itself with just a click of your Smart Key.
  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection: If an obstacle or pedestrian suddenly appears in your path, your Sonata will signal with both visual and audible warnings – even applying the brakes if you get too close.
  • Lane Following Assist: Using sensors embedded in your windshield, this system monitors your lane as you navigate the roads. If you start to veer out of your lane markings, the Sonata will alert you and even correct your steering if needed.
  • Blind-Spot Collision Avoidance Assist: This system monitors your blind spots automatically, and if you attempt to change lanes at an unsafe time, your Sonata will alert you and apply the brakes in an emergency situation.
  • Rear-Cross Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist: When reversing out your driveway, this system will scan for anything behind the vehicle. If any obstacles are detected, your car will alert you and apply the brakes.
