The New Hyundai i20: Connected and caring

- The revised Hyundai i20 range offers new and advanced connectivity features.

The new 7-inch Display Audio offers affordable connectivity: passengers can easily mirror content from their smartphone to the system’s display using Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. As a result, they can navigate using their smartphone without the need for built-in car navigation. Furthermore, the i20 is available with an updated 7-inch colour navigation system that seamlessly integrates all media and connectivity features and supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as Live Services.

A new USB charger provides passengers with the option to recharge their mobile devices as they drive.

Safe and reliable: Introducing Hyundai SmartSense for the i20

To comply with the highest European standards, Hyundai now introduces the latest Hyundai SmartSense active safety and driver assistance systems for the New i20. These include: Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS), Driver Attention Alert (DAA), Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) and High Beam Assist (HBA).

Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)

The i20 can be equipped with the Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS). The LDWS alerts drivers with clear visual and acoustic warnings if the car begins to drift outside its intended lane. This can help prevent potential collisions with other vehicles.

Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Recognition (AEB)

AEB is an advanced active safety feature that alerts drivers to emergency situations and brakes autonomously if required. Using a front camera, AEB operates in three stages. Stage one warns the driver visually and acoustically. Stage two modulates the brakes if there is danger of a collision. Stage three applies maximum braking force to avoid a collision, or to minimise the damage if a collision is unavoidable.

Driver Attention Alert (DAA)

DAA is a driver protection feature that monitors driving patterns in order to detect fatigued driving and prevent potential accidents. The system analyses various vehicle signals, such as steering angle, steering torque, the vehicle’s position in the lane and driving time. In addition, the driver can adjust a user-selectable setting for the system’s sensitivity. If the system detects inattentive driving patterns, a sound and message on the instrument display panel will alert the driver.

Lane Keeping Assist (LKA)

Lane Keeping Assist alerts the driver of unsafe movements at over 60 km/h by sensing the car’s position. The system warns the driver acoustically and visually before inducing corrective steering to guide the driver back to a safe position.

High Beam Assist (HBA)

When set to automatic mode, High Beam Assist detects both oncoming vehicles as well as vehicles in the same lane ahead at night, and switches to low beams as appropriate, thereby reducing blinding effects on other drivers. When no more vehicles are detected, the system automatically reactivates the high beams, maximising the driver’s range of vision.
