2017 Hyundai Tucson Active Safety Features

The Hyundai Tucson features a variety of active safety systems in place that'll help keep you in control and your vehicle on track. The anti-lock brakes work with the Vehicle Stability Management system. This system, featuring both traction and stability control, helps provide control during times of wheel slip. This system will add brake pressure to the wheels that experience slip while sending more torque to the tires with traction to help keep the vehicle on its path.

The Hyundai Tucson also features Electronic Brake-Force Distribution. This system varies the amount of brake pressure added to each wheel to provide superior control when braking. Brake Assist, also equipped in the Hyundai Tucson, will detect emergency braking and will help you come to a complete stop. 

2017 Hyundai Tucson Passive Safety Features

This SUV is outfitted with an advanced airbag system. This system will measure the severity of impact and adjust the inflation pressure of the airbags to compensate for the force of the collision. These airbags also feature occupant sensors, which will prevent the airbags from deploying to empty seats. The Hyundai Tucson features dual front airbags, front seat-mounted side airbags, and side curtain airbags for both rows.
