Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA-R).

At speeds of 30 km/h or above, BCW (standard across all variants) uses the windshield mounted camera to detect if a vehicle is present in the Santa Fe’s blind spot. BCW displays a visual alert in the exterior mirrors and if the driver proceeds to activate the corresponding indicator lights, a flashing visual warning is provided and an audible alert is sounded.

Operational at speeds between 60 km/h and 180 km/h, the Active BCA can initiate the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system to help avoid a collision with an approaching vehicle, next to or behind Santa Fe which it deems as being at a high risk of contact due to its proximity. In initiating ESC, an active avoidance manoeuvre is undertaken with the system gently applying braking force to the wheels on the opposing side of the potential collision point to bring the vehicle away from danger, lowering the chance of collision and or helping to mitigate damage.
