Continuing with the tradition of having a reliable braking system, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra and its 4-wheel anti-lock braking system feature a variety of systems in place that can help you stay in control and come to a stop when needed. The Vehicle Stability Management works with the Electronic Stability Control and the Traction Control System to help keep your vehicle on track during slippery conditions or rough terrain.

The Electronic Brake-Force Distribution is a system that varies the amount of force of brake pressure that's applied to each wheel. The Brake Assist is also a helpful active safety feature. It provides added force to help you come to a complete stop in an emergency. 

Passive Safety Features

The exterior of the 2017 Honda Elantra was designed with collision protection in mind. The front and rear crumple zones are equipped to handle an impact. They help disperse the force of impact during a crash.

As for passenger protection, the Hyundai Elantra is outfitted with an advanced airbag system. The front airbags will actively adjust their inflation pressure to compensate for the severity of impact. The Hyundai Elantra also includes seat-mounted side-impact airbags, side curtain airbags, and a driver's knee airbag. 

Optional Driver-Assist Technology

You can easily upgrade your Hyundai Elantra to feature a variety of helpful safety systems that can add a little ease and security to your driving. The Smart Cruise Control will let you set a speed and distance from the vehicle ahead, allowing you to maneuver your vehicle effectively. The Forward Collision Warning utilizes front sensors that provide a warning if it senses that a collision is imminent unless you apply the brakes.
