Hyundai Kona N Safety Features

In addition to being stylish and fun to drive around Knoxville, TN, the Hyundai Kona N also comes standard with safety features to give you peace of mind every time you go out on the road. Here are some of the most notable safety features that come standard on the Hyundai Kona N.

Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Avoidance Assist

If you want peace of mind when backing out of a parking space in Maryville, TN, this feature can help you by sensing if another vehicle is behind you when your vehicle is in reverse.

Blind-Spot Collision Warning

When driving around Farragut, TN, it can be stressful to change lanes in traffic. Blind-Spot Collision Warning monitors traffic behind you and alerts you if you change lanes when another vehicle is in your blind spot.

Rear Occupant Alert

If you are a parent of a small child or you have a pet you occasionally need to take in your vehicle inside a carrier, it's essential to always check the back seat before exiting your vehicle. Rear Occupant Alert senses when the back door has been opened and closed before the car is started and alerts you to check the rear seat when you exit the vehicle.
