“Shoppers seek core safety features when buying a family SUV," said Brian Latouf, Chief Safety Officer, Hyundai Motor North America. “This is why we use sensorfusion technology to make Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection and Lane Keeping Assist standard features in the Palisade. Occupant safety isalways top of mind at Hyundai."

Palisade offers a number of advanced safety technologies, including Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Blind-Spot Collision-AvoidanceAssist, Lane Following Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Avoidance Assist, Safe Exit Assist, High Beam Assist, Driver Attention Warning and Smart Cruise Controlwith Stop and Go.

Hyundai’s standard Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA) enhances driver awareness to the rear of the Palisade. Using the Blind Spot Detection system’s radar sensors when backing up, the system can not only warn the driver if vehicles approach from the rear side in certain situations, it may also automaticallyapplies the brakes.

An available safety feature includes Rear Occupant Alert (ROA). The system monitors the rear seats using an ultrasonic sensor that helps to detect the movements ofchildren and pets. The system first reminds drivers to check the rear seats when exiting the vehicle with a message on the centre instrument cluster display. If thesystem detects movement in the rear seats after the driver leaves the vehicle and locks the doors, it will honk the horn and send a Blue Link alert to the driver’ssmartphone via Hyundai’s Blue Link connected car system. The system is designed to help prevent children and pets from being forgotten in the car, but it may alsohelp in cases where children accidentally lock themselves in.

The Palisade also features an optional Safe Exit Assist system. To enhance the safety of Hyundai’s passengers, Safe Exit Assist uses radar to help detect carsapproaching from the rear and cautions passengers looking to exit the vehicle. If a passenger attempts to open the door when a car is approaching from behind, avisual and acoustic warning on the centre cluster may alert the driver. In addition, if the driver attempts to deactivate the Electronic Child Safety Lock feature,Safe Exit Assist may override the driver and ensure the rear doors remain locked until the approaching vehicle has passed. Once the road is clear, the driver canthen deactivate the Electronic Child Safety Lock and successfully unlock the rear passenger doors.
