Hyundai says it has upped the safety quotient on the new Tucson. The SUV gets an Autonomous Emergency Braking system with three operation modes: pedestrian, city and inter-urban, Lane Keeping Assist System, Rear Traffic Cross Alert system which uses radar to scan a 180-degree area behind the vehicle and alerting the driver to any approaching cross-traffic, Blind Spot Detection, Speed Limit Information Function which monitors roadside speed limit signs and an Active Bonnet System which raises the vehicle’s bonnet in a frontal impact with a pedestrian or cyclist.

Other features on the SUV include ventilated and heated front seats, powered tailgate, parking assist, a new gen navigation system with a 7-year subscription to TomTom Live and LED headlights.
