Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW).

At speeds of 30 km/h or above, Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW) uses radar sensors on either side of the rear bumper to detect vehicles next to and diagonally behind Kona. If a vehicle is present in the Kona’s blind spot, BCW displays a visual alert in the exterior mirrors. If the driver proceeds to activate the corresponding indicator lights, a flashing visual warning is provided and an audible alert is sounded.

The system also scans for vehicles approaching rapidly from the rear, and uses the same warning measures to alert the driver of vehicles which may be entering Kona’s blind spot at a higher rate of speed.

These features are standard on Active with Safety Pack, Elite and Highlander variants.
