Your Hyundai is packed full of technological advances designed to make driving easy. Across South Central Minnesota, you rely on your vehicle to get you through year-round. Each of these great technology features inside your Hyundai were made to ensure you get to where you need to be safely and surely.

As proof of how Hyundai have delivered on the promise of infusing the latest technology into your vehicle, J.D. Power designated Hyundai as its highest ranked mass market brand in the 2021 U.S. Tech Experience Index (TXI) StudySM. Hyundai earned a top score of 519 and was praised for offering an above average level of technologies and excellence in execution. Hyundai Elantra is also the mass market model receiving the emerging automation award for front cross traffic warning technology, which Hyundai calls Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) with Pedestrian, Cyclist and Junction-Turning Detection.

The TXI Innovation Index Study measures how effectively each automotive brand brings technologies to market, measured on a 1,000-point scale. The index combines the level of adoption of new technologies for each brand with excellence in execution. The execution measurement examines how much owners like the technologies and how many problems they experience while using them.

The TXI Study analyzes 36 technologies, which are divided into four categories: convenience; emerging automation; energy and sustainability; and infotainment and connectivity. Only technologies classified as advanced are award eligible.

In addition, the Hyundai Elantra was awarded the Emerging Automation Award for the Front Cross Traffic Warning Technology equipped on the reigning North American Car of The Year.

The Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) with Pedestrian, Cyclist, and Junction-Turning Detection uses radar technology and camera sensors to help prevent accidents with other vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists. FCA automatically reduces speed and alerts the driver of potential on-road collisions. With Electronic Stability Control (ESC), FCA ensures greater protection by automatically applying the brakes at the right time. The available junction-turning feature can detect an on-coming vehicle when turning left at an intersection and may warn the driver and provide braking assistance to help avoid a collision.
