The Hyundai Ioniq 5 has many reasons why it can become a winner of the 2022 World Car Award. Its driving quality is proven to be above the average electric car. In addition to its electric drive technology, the Ioniq 5 is also equipped with a series of advanced features, especially in terms of safety.
The active safety feature package, packaged as Hyundai SmartSense, is complete in the Ioniq 5. This electric crossover is a model that has the full features of SmartSense from all other Hyundai products. Therefore, the Ioniq 5 can accommodate the needs of driving both inside and outside the city.
The first, Hyundai embeds Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) in the Ioniq 5. The computerized system warns of the potential risk of a collision from the front. If needed, the car automatically brakes if the system judges that a collision is imminent. If we are late or the level of braking is still lacking, this device immediately gives a warning. Even immediately heaved his own pace when the safe distance was considered too close.
In addition, there is also Lane Keeping & Lane Following Assist (LKA & LFA). The system helps the car stay within the road markings through visual and audio information. As well as returning the vehicle speed to the ideal position when out of the lane markings. Press the button to the right of the steering wheel to turn it on or off.
Another feature is Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA). The device can detect and monitor vehicles coming from behind. As well as helping to avoid potential collisions or collisions by activating the brakes automatically if needed. This security system now also covers situations when parallel parking is being carried out.
Then the Ioniq 5 is also equipped with a Blind-Spot View Monitor (BVM). Can display a blind spot area on the back of the car. Visual BVM is located on the car cluster panel when the driver activates the turn signal. If in a situation the driver wants to change lanes while driving. Furthermore, Driver Attention Warning (DAW) is useful for warning drivers who lack concentration. So with this feature it makes you more alert and reduces the potential for accidents on the highway.
Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA) is also available. Its function is to detect vehicles approaching from the right or left rear. A warning sign will appear, informing you that a vehicle is coming from behind. The system also automatically engages the brakes if needed.
There is also a Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go Function (SCC w/ S&G). This is interesting, in order to maintain the specified distance from the car in front. The feature automatically reduces or increases the speed to a predefined limit. In “stop & go” mode, a stable distance tends to be maintained. Even when used in city traffic jams. Adaptive Cruise Control can work from 30 km / hour. In other cars, it can usually only be used at 60 km / h and above.
Another SmartSense device is High Beam Assist (HBA). Innovation that can detect headlights from vehicles in the opposite direction. Then adjust the position of using the near and far lights alternately. When driving at night or in areas with limited visibility. This electric car also has a Surround View Monitor (SVM). Capable of providing a 360-degree view of the entire vehicle. So, adding to the practicality of the driver when parking the vehicle. Especially in a relatively narrow area.
Hyundai, of course, has also installed a series of other advanced safety features on the Ioniq 5. Among them is the Brake Assist System (BAS). Namely a system that increases braking force and shortens the stopping distance of the vehicle during an emergency situation. Then there is Vehicle Stability Management (VSM). A system, helping the vehicle to remain in a stable condition when increasing speed or braking suddenly. For example in wet, slippery and not smooth road conditions.
If the car brakes suddenly, the Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) feature automatically turns on the hazard lights. There is also a Rear Occupant Alert (ROA), which alerts the driver to check if there are still passengers in the back. When getting out of the used car. Lastly, the sound of pure electric vehicles tends to be quiet. Of course it can affect the awareness of other road users. Hence, Hyundai has installed the Virtual Engine Sound System (VESS) feature. It can produce a unique sound or audio for the Ioniq 5.
