Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)
SUV buyers do not want to compromise when it comes to protecting their passengers, so Hyundai has expanded its SmartSense Safety technologies on the new Tucson. It now offers more features than have ever been available in a compact SUV. This generous suite of advanced safety features goes far beyond the abundance of SUV segment standard safety equipment and includes many innovative driver assistance systems, such as the following:

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (with Pedestrian, Cyclist and Junction-Turning Detection)
The new Tucson offers an enhanced Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) with pedestrian, cyclist and junction-turning detection, an advanced safety feature activated when the vehicle senses a vehicle, pedestrian or cyclist in front of the car with potential for a collision. The available junction-turning feature can detect an on-coming vehicle when turning left at an intersection and may warn the driver and provide braking assistance to help avoid a collision.

Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA)
BCA helps avoid collisions with a rear side vehicle when changing lanes. When operating the turn signal switch to change lanes, if there is a risk of collision with a rear side vehicle, the system provides a warning. After the warning, if the risk of collision increases, the system automatically controls the vehicle to help avoid a collision. If exiting a parallel parking spot and there is a risk of collision with a rear side vehicle, the system automatically assists with emergency braking.

Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist
Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA) helps avoid collisions with oncoming vehicles on the left or right side of the vehicle while reversing. If there is a risk of collision with an oncoming vehicle on the left or right side while reversing, the system provides a warning. After the warning, if the risk of collision increases, the system automatically assists with emergency braking.

Lane Keeping Assist and Lane Following Assist
Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) helps prevent accidental lane departure by sensing road markings, automatically steering the vehicle if necessary. Lane Following Assist (LFA) takes LKA a step further and may automatically adjust steering to help keep the vehicle centered in its lane of travel and can help keep the vehicle centered on both highways and city streets.

Highway Driving Assist
Highway Driving Assist (HDA) is a driving convenience system that assists drivers in maintaining the center of the lane, while keeping a safe distance to the car in front and can help maintain vehicle speeds according to posted speed limits on federal interstate highways. HDA works in conjunction with the navigation system information, smart cruise and lane following assist.

Blind-Spot View Monitor
Blind-Spot View Monitor (BVM) offers the driver an enhanced field of vision, displayed within the gauge cluster. If the driver activates a turn signal, an image of the view from the corresponding side mirror is displayed in the digital cluster display.

Surround View Monitor
The new Tucson uses cameras to provide the driver with an enhanced, downward view of the car’s exterior, giving the driver confidence when maneuvering into or out of spaces.

Ultrasonic Rear Occupant Alert
Ultrasonic Rear Occupant Alert (ROA) monitors the rear seats to detect the movements of children and pets, reminding drivers to check the rear seats when exiting the vehicle; if the system detects movement in the rear seats after the driver leaves the vehicle, it will sound the horn and send an alert to the driver’s smartphone via Blue Link.

Safe Exit Warning
Tucson also offers Hyundai’s Safe Exit Warning (SEW) system helps detect cars approaching from the rear while the Tucson is parked. If a passenger attempts to open the door when a car is approaching from behind, visual and acoustic warnings on the cluster may alert the passengers.

Smart Cruise Control with Stop and Go
Using a radar sensor mounted on the lower front grille, Smart Cruise Control maintains a set distance from the vehicle ahead by automatically adjusting vehicle speed as needed, even in stop-and-go traffic conditions.

High Beam Assist (HBA)
Eliminates the need for drivers to manually switch high beams on and off at night for approaching vehicles in the opposite on-coming lane.

Driver Attention Warning (DAW)
Monitors a spectrum of driver-related characteristics to help detect driver fatigue and alert the driver.

Advanced Infotainment, Connectivity and Convenience

Compact SUV buyers expect a lot from their vehicles. To meet these expectations, Tucson provides seamless connectivity and generous protection from driving hazards. Hyundai’s consumer research tells us that Tucson buyers want an escape from the daily stress of long commutes, heavy traffic, road hazards and distractions. They also expect to stay connected wherever they go, and the Tucson provides this capability better than any SUV in the market.

Tucson’s wireless device charging makes it easier than ever to keep devices charged when on the go. Dynamic Voice Recognition is an advanced voice recognition system that utilizes simple voice commands to conveniently perform specific controls for the cabin, including: temperature adjustment, radio, hatch opening/closing, heated steering wheel, heated/cooled seats, and others. The system can also assist with various points of interest (POI), weather status, and stock market data. The Tucson navigation system offers split-screen functionality that enables multi-tasking capabilities. Tucson also offers an eight-speaker Bose® Premium sound system.

Blue Link® Connected Car System
The new Tucson receives many Blue Link® Connected Car System enhancements. As with most Hyundai models, Blue Link is complimentary for three years and includes features such as Remote Start with Climate Control, Remote Door Lock/Unlock, Stolen Vehicle Recovery and Destination Search by Voice and others. Blue Link features can be accessed via interior controls or through the MyHyundai.com web portal, the MyHyundai with Blue Link smartphone app, the Amazon® Alexa Blue Link skill and the Blue Link Google Assistant app. Some features can be controlled via Android Wear™ and Apple Watch™ smartwatch apps.

I like the safety features but the back up sound is too loud! I’m not talking about the the warning if something is behind you but just putting car in reverse. Any way of getting rid of it or reducing the volume?

I agree with Megacar, the artificial noise (coming from the engine compartment - not the rear of the Tucson) when driving in Reverse on the Hybrid (it only uses the battery in this case) is obnoxiously loud and embarrassing. There is no setting to turn this off, much less lower the volume. Several have commented that this is a safety feature mandated by the NTSB in the US. It sounds more like the Good Humor truck arriving on the scene. Hopefully, someone figures out how to mitigate this sooner than later. There is no individual fuse that controls this behavior and identifying the speaker location is not immediately apparent.

I've been playing with some of the SmartSense driving safety features on my Tucson Hybrid Limited and trying to figure out how the features interrelate. Two of the features that are referenced in the video here include Lane Following Assist and Lane Keeping Assist (starting at the 1:43 mark).

Does anyone know if there's any need to activate Lane Keeping Assist if Lane Following Assist is active?

Also, does activation of Smart Cruise Control automatically activate Lane Following Assist?

^ @Crow - From what I've read and the videos I've watched, Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) on the '22 Tucson is "enabled" (either "Warning Only" or "Assist") by way of Vehicle Settings in the infotainment screen. When set for Warning Only or Assist, LKA will automatically activate when the vehicle reaches 40 mph (64 km/h). The purpose of LKA is to keep the vehicle from drifting out of the lane. The purpose of Lane Follow Assist (LFA) is to keep the vehicle centered in the lane at any speed (below 120 mph). Unlike LKA, LFA defaults to Off on vehicle shutdown and must be reactivated on engine restart.
Activation of Smart Cruise Control (SCC) does not automatically activate LFA. However, when SCC is active and set to a speed while driving on the highway, Highway Driving Assist (HDA) - if enabled in Vehicle Settings - works to keep the vehicle centered in the lane similar to what LFA does.
Hope that makes things a little clearer. If I got something wrong in my explanation, someone please correct me.

Thanks for the explanation. I played with the systems this evening and they are good when they work (requiring well-striped roads). Unfortunately, the camera and radar sensor can quickly lose track of the surroundings when road conditions aren't ideal and give up without warning (haptic feedback under that condition would have been helpful). That can be a bit dicey going around a curve. For that reason, I likely won't use most of it to avoid a future false sense of security. I'll also keep an open mind to it as the system hopefully improves and others are able to demonstrate confidence in it.

By the way, I discovered that LFA can be activated/deactivated using a short press of the Lane Departure button while the LKA feature can be activated/deactivated using a long press of the same button. As you mentioned, LKA retains its setting between trips whereas LFA does not (not sure what the logic behind that decision was).

Likewise, the Smart Cruise Control system can be activated/deactivated using a short press of the Cruise Control button while the old school Cruise Control function (where only speed is set) can be activated/deactivated using a long press of the same button.

^ The lane assist stuff can be pretty off-putting if you haven't had much exposure to it. I have it on my 2018 Audi and I've really come to like it (well, mostly) - except Audi don't do a very good job with lane keep assist (aka 'Active Lane Assist' in Audi speak) and the frequent chime alerts the system emits - drives me crazy.
From what I've read, Hyundai Group (i.e. Hyundai, Kia & Genesis) do a far better job with all the latest driver safety tech stuff than most of their competitors.
Yes, the Tucson owner's manual mentions how to activate/deactivate LFA with a brief press of the 'Lane Driving Assist' button, and LKA can be activated/deactivated using a long press of the same button. Seems straight forward enough.
Thanks for that detail about the Smart Cruise Control (SCC) system. The owner's manual doesn't mention that you can activate/deactivate "old school" (standard) cruise control with a long press of the cruise control button. What a great idea that is, to make available standard cruise control in the event SCC isn't functioning well or not at all.

This noise is incredibly aggravating. Way too loud and unnecessary. Before you buy this car, consider carefully how loud and embarrassing this constant noise is. Hyundai needs to fix this....fast!
