The Hyundai Tucson is a leading option in the SUV market, and here at Huffines Hyundai McKinney, we believe that the Tucson is one of the best SUVs to buy in McKinney, Texas. One area where the Hyundai Tucson truly excels is in the technology available to drivers. Whether you’re interested in entertainment or safety technology, the Hyundai Tucson has a lot to offer. This guide takes a look at some of the best features that make the Hyundai Tucson such an excellent option for aspiring SUV owners who want the best entertainment and technology options when buying a new SUV.
Standard and Upgraded Touch Screen Options
Any assessment of the technology and entertainment options in your Hyundai Tucson has to begin with the touch screen on your Tucson’s dashboard. Available in both standard and upgraded varieties, no matter which option you choose, your touch screen provides the hub which allows you to easily access many of the entertainment and technology features of the Hyundai Tucson. The clear graphics on the touch screen device make it easy to navigate and use whatever features you need.
Using Bluetooth technology, you can pair your phone to your car, which enables you to control many of its most useful features without having to look down at it. From sending and receiving calls and messages to playing music or podcasts off of your favorite streaming app, once connected, you can manage these tasks using your touch screen display or wheel mounted controls.
This pairs particularly well with your Hyundai Tucson’s voice activation control system. By using voice activation to dictate messages, and the car’s sound system to play them, you can send and receive text messages, change the music that’s playing, or complete other phone-based tasks without ever taking your eyes off of the road.
When backing out of a parking space (or backing in so that you can pull out more easily when leaving) the better view you have the more easily you can park your Hyundai Tucson. The rear mounted camera on your Tucson engages automatically when you put it into reverse. This camera gives you an unobstructed view of the space behind your car so that you can back up confidently. This helps you avoid accidents and fit into tighter parallel parking spaces without concerns about any bumps or nudges.
Rear Cross Traffic Alert
Although the rear traffic camera is an excellent tool for staying safe when backing up, it’s not the only way the Hyundai Tucson’s technology works to make you safer behind the wheel. Rear cross traffic alert uses sensors to monitor the area behind your Tucson in both directions. When someone or something approaches, the rear traffic monitoring alerts you to their presence even before they have come into the view of the camera or your eyesight. This provides additional protection against collisions when backing up, to keep you and those around you as safe as possible.
Driver Attention System
Remaining alert at the wheel is important, but there are a variety of situations that can cause diminished attention by a driver. With monitoring systems inside of your Hyundai Tucson, the driver alert system notifies you when you begin to show signs of distraction, tired driving, or other potentially hazardous conditions. This allows you to stop the dangerous behavior, or if necessary, pull over to seek additional remedies in order to avoid dangerous situations.
Lane Keep Assist
Staying within your lane on the highway is important for safe operation of your vehicle. The Hyundai Tucson has many technological features designed to help you keep your vehicle where it belongs as you drive. Lane monitoring warnings alert you when you have moved too close to a neighboring lane, while lane keep assist makes adjustments to your heading if needed. This keeps you centered within your lane and minimizes your exposure to accidents with vehicles in neighboring lanes.
Blind Spot Monitoring
Another important consideration when driving on the highway is vehicles in your blind spots when you attempt to change lanes. Whenever a vehicle moves into a location that might make it difficult for you to see it, your Hyundai Tucson alerts you with a light on the mirror that corresponds with that lane change. This ensures you only move over into a neighboring lane when there is space to do so safely in order to avoid accidents.
Forward Collision Avoidance
Another invaluable safety feature that your Hyundai Tucson’s technology provides is forward collision avoidance. This system uses your traveling speed to determine safe stopping distances in the event of a sudden breaking by the car in front of you. The system will alert you to unsafe speeds and make adjustments if needed to keep you safe.
For those who prefer to have enhanced visibility on the road, the optional 360° camera technology in a Hyundai Tucson is a must-have feature. It provides you with live visuals off all sides of your Tucson, in order to help you operate it as safely as possible. It provides you with all the information you need to make informed decisions behind the wheel.
Premium Sound System
For music aficionados, the Hyundai Tucson comes with an optional premium sound system that allows you to enjoy your music with maximum fidelity. Featuring eight speakers capable of infinity surround sound performance, there’s simply no better way to listen to your favorite artist. If you have family enjoying a movie or TV show while you drive, the sound system can provide theater-like surround sound performance to let them fully escape into the experience.
