What Is Hyundai Smart Cruise Control?

The Hyundai Smart Cruise Control system is an advanced driver's aid, designed to make freeway driving safer and easier. By scanning the road ahead, the Hyundai Smart Cruise Control system automatically maintains a safe driving distance between you and the traffic ahead, and can even account for traffic and slowdowns.

Now although cruise control comes standard on just about every new car sold today, the functionality and operation remains quite cumbersome. Requiring constant user input, and no ability to account for other vehicles, a standard cruise control system is best used on empty, open roads. Hyundai Smart Cruise Control on the other hand uses high-tech software to constantly scan the road, and adjust speed to account for other vehicles. This means that whether you're on the open road, or cruising behind another vehicle, your Hyundai will adapt to the traffic conditions. The system can be quickly adjusted to account for speed and following distance, thanks to easy-to-use controls mounted on the steering wheel.

How to Use Hyundai Smart Cruise Control

  1. While driving, press the Cruise Control button on the steering wheel. For reference, it will will say "CRUISE" or be a speedometer icon.
  2. Confirm that the Cruise Control light has appeared on the instrument display, and accelerate to your desired speed.
  3. Once you have maintained speed, press down on the Set switch. The cruise control will now be active, and you can let off the accelerator.
  4. To set your following distance, press the Smart Cruise Control button, which is to the left of the Set switch. Each press of the button will change the following distance, which will be displayed on your instrument cluster.
  5. To exit cruise control, simply press down on the brake pedal or press the cruise control button on the steering wheel.
