Highway Driving Assist (HDA)

Highway Driving Assist is designed to control the vehicle distance and speed when driving on the highway. The function assists drivers by receiving information about speed limit of the highway that the vehicle is on and automatically changing the set speed of Smart Cruise Control when it is needed.


  •  Highway Driving Assist is not a  substitute for safe driving practices, but a convenience function. It is the responsibility of the driver to always be aware of the surroundings and drive safely.
  •  Highway Driving Assist relies entirely on the road information provided by the Infotainment System. It is the responsibility of the driver to follow traffic laws and avoid accidents.
  •  For your safety, please read the owner’s manual before using the function.

Highway Driving Assist Operation

The speed is automatically set in accordance with the steering control and the highway speed limit when all the operating conditions are met.

Steering control



If both lanes are recognized properly (lane color: white), the steering wheel indicator () lights up in green and then the steering control is initiated. When the function cannot provide temporary steering inputs, the indicator flashes green and then changes to white. Even when Highway Driving Assist cannot provide temporary steering inputs, it still controls the distance from other vehicles.
Warning related to the steering wheel


The hands-off warning appears when the function detects that the driver’s hands are not on the steering wheel while Highway Driving Assist is in operation.
(First warning: warning message, Second warning: warning message with warning sound)


  • The hands-off warning may be delayed depending on road conditions. Always keep your hands on the steering wheel while driving.
  •  If you hold the steering wheel lightly, it may be perceived that the steering wheel is not held at all and trigger the hands-off warning.

When the hands-off warning lasts for a certain period of time


If you keep your hands off the steering wheel even with the hands-off warning on, the steering assist and Smart Cruise Control will be temporarily released automatically.
If you activate Smart Cruise Control with Highway Driving Assist released, the steering assist will re-start.

Automatic speed setting


In the automatic speed setting mode, the set speed is automatically adjusted to the changing speed limits of highway sections.


If the driver directly changes the speed, it enters the manual speed setting mode and the set speed is displayed in white and the “AUTO” symbol will disappear.

  •  Highway Driving Assist is limited in other countries.
  •  Highway Driving Assist only operates based on the speed limits of the highway but it does not work with the speed cameras.
  •  The time gap could occur between the navigation speed warning and function operation.
  •  If the speed limits of speed cameras exceed the highway speed limits during the automatic speed setting mode, the navigation displays its own warning.
  • The function is not designed to work on expressways, national highways and public roads. The function automatically cancels when you leave the highway.
  •  Highway Driving Assist is deactivated on the user settings in the instrument cluster when it is not in operable condition.
  •  When the vehicle is at a resting area or interchanges or junctions away from the main line of the highway, Highway Driving Assist is automatically turned off so it requires caution to the driver.
  •  When you are 0.3 mile (500 m) before/after an open-type toll gate while driving on the highway, Highway Driving Assist is automatically turned off so it requires caution to the driver.
