    2023 Hyundai Palisade airbags

    Airbags: The Palisade comes with six airbags including a pair of front airbags for the driver and passenger, a pair of side airbags protecting the pelvic & thorax, and left and right curtain airbags giving head protection to occupants.

    ABS: Anti-lock braking system helps the driver steer in emergencies by restoring traction to the tyres.

    ESC: Electronic Stability Control helps prevent loss of control at curves and emergency steering maneuvers by stabilizing the car.

    VSM: Vehicle Stability Control provides enhanced vehicle stability and steering response in conditions like slippery roads and changes in the coefficient of friction between left and right wheels.

    EBD: Electronic Brakeforce Distribution ensures correct brakeforce to each wheel equally.

    TCS: Traction Control System here detects loose traction among the car’s wheels and upon identifying a loose grip the system automatically applies the brake or cuts down engine power.

    Hill-Start Assist Control: This feature automatically stops the car from rolling back when the driver presses and releases brakes on a hill by holding the brake pressure.

    Downhill Brake Control: This feature is designed to prevent the driver from entering an unsafe speed while the car travels uneven terrain or goes downhill.

    Multi Collision Brake: The system gets activated in event of a frontal or side collision which leads to airbag release. It then applies appropriate braking force to prevent secondary accidents.

    Trailer Stability Assist: The function continuously monitors car movements, especially lateral movement. In case snaking is detected, the front wheels are individually braked.

    The SUV also benefits from the Hyundai SmartSense suite of advanced driver assistance systems which include -

    Blind-spot Collision-Avoidance Assist: When the turn signal is switched on or when a forward collision risk is detected, the system provides a warning. If that doesn’t help, the system automatically offers assistance via emergency braking.

    Rear Cross Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist: This advanced driving assistance system informs the driver in case a vehicle is detected approaching from the left or right when the car is in reverse.

    Lane Keeping Assist: The LKA keeps track of where the car is within the lane; in case the car strays too close to a lane it steers the Palisade back towards the center.
