Hyundai Santa Cruz: Driving Convenience / Lane Following Assist Operation

Warning and control

Lane Following Assist

If the vehicle ahead and/or both lane markings are detected and your vehicle speed is below 110 mph (180 km/h), the green indicator light illuminates on the cluster, and Lane Following Assist helps center the vehicle in the lane by assisting the steering wheel.


When the steering wheel is not assisted, the green indicator light blinks and changes to white.

Hands-off warning

If the driver takes their hands off the steering wheel for several seconds, the ‘Place hands on the steering wheel’ warning message appears and an audible warning sounds in stages.

First stage : Warning message

Second stage : Warning message (red steering wheel) and audible warning

If the driver still does not have their hands on the steering wheel after the hands-off warning, the ‘Lane Following Assist (LFA) canceled’ warning message appears and Lane Following Assist is automatically canceled.


  • The Lane Following steering wheel effort can be overcome if the steering wheel is held tightly or if the driver steers the vehicle beyond a certain angle.
  • Lane Following Assist does not operate at all times. It is the responsibility of the driver to safely steer the vehicle and to maintain the vehicle in its lane.
  • The hands–off warning message may appear late depending on road conditions. Always have your hands on the steering wheel while driving.
  • If the steering wheel is held very lightly the hands–off warning message may appear because Lane Following Assist may not recognize that the driver has their hands on the steering wheel.
  • If you attach objects to the steering wheel, the hands-off warning may not work properly.


  • When both lane markings are detected, the lane lines on the cluster will change from grey to white.
  • The images and colors in the cluster may differ depending on the cluster type or theme selected from the cluster.
  • If lane markings are not detected, steering wheel control by Lane Following Assist can be limited depending on whether a vehicle is in front or the driving conditions of the vehicle.
  • Even though the steering is assisted by Lane Following Assist, the driver may control the steering wheel.
  • The steering wheel may feel heavier or lighter when the steering wheel is assisted by Lane Following Assist than when it is not.
