New safety and driver-assist features in vehicles provide an added peace of mind when driving. At Hyundai of Long Island City, we’ve looked at some of the most popular features so you know which ones you don’t want to go without in your new Hyundai sedan or SUV.

One option you don’t want to skip? The Blind-Spot Detection with Cross-Traffic Alert, which can be found in several of our vehicles, including the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe. Blind-Spot Detection alerts you of any oncoming vehicles via an illumination in the corresponding side mirror, letting you know it’s not safe to change lanes. The Cross-Traffic Alert lets you know when a vehicle is crossing behind you or an object is in your path when you are reversing.

The 2019 Hyundai Sonata is just one of our vehicles that utilizes Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. The feature senses when a vehicle or pedestrian is in your driving path ahead and slows down, or even stops when necessary, to avoid a collision.

Another beneficial feature to add is Lane Keeping Assist. It uses sensors and cameras to detect the lane you are driving in. If you start to veer into a different lane without signaling, it will use corrective steering assistance to guide you back.

Don’t miss these state-of-the-art technologies that make driving easier, and you safer, behind the wheel. Test them out at our Hyundai dealership serving New York, NY with a few test drives. We look forward to working with you soon here at Hyundai of Long Island City!
