You’re driving along the highway and notice how beautiful the scenery is to your right. You hear a chime, look ahead, and see that you’ve begun to stray over the right lane markers, but are returning to your own lane. That was Hyundai’s Lane Keep Assist system alerting you and nudging you back before you crossed into the path of other vehicles.


Of course, as the driver, you are responsible for the safe operation of your vehicle, but the Lane Keep Assist system is there to help. It uses a camera on the front windshield to help detect lane lines and assists with steering to help keep you in your lane.

Slight steering adjustment with warning

When the system detects that you are straying, it issues a visual and audible warning. It also applies a slight steering adjustment to try to prevent the vehicle from moving out of the lane. Of course the system doesn’t interfere if you have turned on the turn signal.

Activating Lane Keep Assist

To activate the Lane Keep Assist system, make sure the ignition is switched on. Press the Lane Keep Assist button located on the instrument panel on the left side of the steering wheel.

An indicator in the instrument cluster will appear in white. This means that the Lane Keep Assist system is ready, but not enabled. In addition, gray lines will appear on either side of the vehicle symbol at the center of the instrument cluster.

Once your vehicle speed is over 40 miles per hour, if lane lines are detected on both sides of your vehicle, the Lane Keep Assist symbol will turn green. That means all required conditions are met, and the system is fully enabled. It will provide warnings and help control vehicle steering to assist you in staying in your lane.
