Standard Genesis Safety Technologies
Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA-A) With Pedestrian Detection
One of the greatest challenges of driving is not being able to control the driving behaviors of the people around you. While no technology can force others to use safe driving habits, FCA-A changes how you respond to these drivers.
Using a forward camera and radar sensors, FCA-A identifies other vehicles, bicycles, and pedestrians directly in front of you to determine if you are in danger of a frontal collision. If a possible collision is detected, an audible and visual alert will be activated so that you can respond as quickly as possible. If necessary, FCA-A will activate the brakes automatically to avoid or mitigate collision. Full braking assistance is available between 5 and 110 mph for vehicles and 5 and 45 mph for pedestrians.
Smart Cruise Control With Stop & Go
Cruise control is wonderful when you’re traveling on the highway, but it can be irritating when traffic suddenly slows or even stops, causing you to have to hit the brakes and reset your speed. Smart Cruise Control will adapt your speed automatically to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle ahead of you. Even if the car comes to a complete stop, your Genesis will also pull to a complete stop and will reengage to reach the preset speed once the vehicle in front of you starts moving again.
Blind-Spot Collision Warning
Having to quickly merge into another lane if there is an unexpected lane closure can cause unnecessary stress. It’s not always easy to gauge the amount of space you have available to merge into, especially when someone is traveling in your blind spot.
With Blind-Spot Collision Warning, you will be alerted by an indicator light on the side mirrors if someone is traveling in your blind spot or coming quickly from behind. Front brakes will activate automatically to help steer you back into your respective lane.
