SAFETY

Keeping you and your passengers safe on New Zealand’s varied roads is always our number one priority, so the Tucson surrounds you with excellent chassis rigidity, as well as all the latest safety technologies.

safety aeb
Autonomous Emergency Braking with pedestrian detection (AEB)

You can never be sure what other drivers might do on the road, so the Tucson’s Automatic Emergency Braking system activates the brakes if it detects sudden braking by another vehicle or the presence of a pedestrian directly ahead (Limited models only).

safety LCA
Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS) and Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)

To help you stay in the centre of your lane, the Tucson’s Lane Keep Assist automatically provides gentle steering compensation to keep you in your lane. If the Tucson drifts outside the lane without signalling, Lane Departure Warning will alert the driver with a warning sound (Limited models only).

anchor points
ISOFIX Child seat anchor points

The Tucson is designed to keep Kiwi families as safe as possible, with tether child seat anchor points in the second row and ISOFIX child seat anchor points on second row outside seats.

VSM1
Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) with Electronic Stability Control (ESC)

Designed to help on wet and slippery roads, Vehicle Stability Management works with Electronic Stability Control to give the Tucson more stability, so you can drive with added confidence on tricky surfaces.

safety
Six Airbags

If you’re unfortunate enough to have a collision on the road, it’s reassuring to know that you and your passengers have all-round protection from the Tucson’s six airbags: driver, front passenger, two front side airbags and two side curtain airbags.

Advanced High-strength steel (AHSS)

With an increased use of advanced high strength steel, you have added assurance that the Tucson is ahead of the game when it comes to chassis rigidity.

TL EXT MAIN 10 WHITE AUS RHD 2016 234x226
Lane Change Assist (LCA)

Changing lanes is an important manoeuvre, so when you use the Tucson’s indicators, Lane Change Assist gives a visual and audible alert if a vehicle is approaching quickly from behind.

TL DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHT FOG LAMP SILVER 2016 234x226
Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) with fog lamps

Stylish, bright fog lamps, which sit above the LED Daytime Running Lights, make sure you are seen whenever fog and mist close in.

RCTA
Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)

It’s difficult to see vehicles approach from either the rear left or rear right when you’re reversing out of a driveway, so Rear Cross Traffic Alert warns you with an audible alert if a moving vehicle is detected while the Tucson is reversing (Elite & Limited models only).

safety tsa
Trailer Stability Assist (TSA)

A further improvement to Electronic Stability Control, Trailer Stability Assist detects any instabilities caused by trailer movement and prevents an incident by reducing the Tucson’s speed.

TL BLIND SPOT DETECTION BSD SILVER AUS RHD 2016 314x294
Blind Spot Detection (BSD)

Sometimes, when you look into your rearview and side mirrors you can miss other vehicles in your blind spots. Thanks to Blind Spot Detection technology, these areas are constantly monitored, so when another vehicle is present, you are warned in two ways: a warning symbol illuminates in the side mirrors, and there’s an audible alert if the indicator is used and another vehicle is in your blind spot (Elite & Limited models only).

safety dhb
Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) and Downhill Brake Control (DBC)

There's no need to worry about rolling backwards on a hill, HAC keeps the Tucson still while you move your foot across to the accelerator. When you’re going downhill, it can be easy to build up speed without noticing it. The Tucson is equipped with Downhill Brake Control which, when engaged, maintains a constant and safer speed all the way down.

safety sensors
Reversing camera and sensors

To make reversing easier and bump free, a reversing camera is standard across the range. When reversing, simply look at the monitor on the dashboard to get a clear view of behind. The Tucson also has sensors on the front and rear bumpers to help with parking and manoeuvring into tight spaces (Elite & Limited models only).
