The Hyundai Elantra's Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) is getting noticed for its automation technology that features pedestrian, cyclist and junction-turning detection.
It works by using radar and camera sensors to help prevent accidents with other vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists. FCA triggers to reduce speed and alerts the driver of potential on-road collisions. The additional Electronic Stability Control pitches in by applying the brakes at the right time. And, the junction-turning feature can detect an oncoming vehicle when turning left at an intersection to warn the driver and provide braking assistance.
J.D. Power also designated Hyundai as its highest ranked mass market brand in the 2021 U.S. Tech Experience Index Study. The OEM earned a top score of 519 and was praised for offering an above average level of technologies and excellence in execution.
“Based on research, we understand unmet customer needs, and deliver advanced technology solutions to meet their needs,” said Ricky Lao, director, product planning, Hyundai Motor North America. “We are glad customers find these advanced technologies user friendly.”
