Hyundai Creta Facelift ADAS
As per a source, Hyundai is planning to introduce Intelligent Safety Features for its range of SUVs in India. MG Astor comes powered by a plethora of such functions and the other products in the segment will need to follow suit to remain competitive. Hyundai offers all these features in many of its international models and hence, bringing it to India seems like the logical step. With people getting more and more safety conscious in our market lately, Hyundai aims to standardise some safety features like 6 airbags, ESC with VSM (Vehicle Stability Management) and ISOFIX child seat mounts on Creta and Alcazar. It is expected that these SUVs will borrow the ADAS functions from the next-gen Tucson as well.
The ADAS functions are designed to aid the driver and take some responsibility off his/her shoulders. The most common ADAS features include Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Monitoring, Adaptive Cruise Control, Park Assist, Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Warning, High-Speed Warnings, Driver Drowsiness Detection etc. All these features could warn drivers of various perils and also intervene if need be. Such functions could be extremely helpful on Indian roads where sudden obstacles can come at any time and the driver might not be able to react fast enough.
