EU: The 4th generation Santa Fe to get new safety features

Hyundai’s in-house developed Rear Occupant Alert feature monitors the rear seats to detect passengers when the driver leaves the car.

To comply with the highest European safety standards, the fourth-generation Santa Fe offers one of the best-in-class safety packages and industry-first safety features. All features are part of of Hyundai SmartSense™ active safety and driving assistance technologies. The innovative Rear Occupant Alert monitors the rear seats to detect passengers and alerts the driver when leaving the car. The Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist is a Hyundai first too. When reversing out of areas with low visibility, the system not only warns the driver if vehicles approach from the rear side – it also applies the brakes automatically. The Safety Exit Assist prevents accidents when vehicles approach from behind by temporarily locking the doors before being opened, so that passengers will exit the car safely.
