Smart Cruise Control (SCC)

What is Hyundai’s Smart Cruise Control? (SCC)

American worker commuter times are currently at an all time high, with the average driver spending over 9 calendar days commuting to work every year.  Since you are spending so much time commuting why not make the experience a more enjoyable and relaxing one? Hyundai has answered the call by developing the Smart Cruise Control (SCC) system, making your daily commute, and long road trips a more stress-free experience. SCC works by using a forward mounted radar system to detect the distance and speed of all vehicles in front of your Hyundai.

The system is able to maintain a set speed like normal cruise control but also will slow down to a complete stop or speed up to maintain a certain distance from the vehicle in front of you. This means that when you set your SCC you don’t have to constantly brake and speed up to adjust your speed to match the traffic and vehicle in front of you. You are able to customize the SCC settings to follow closer or further away depending on the traffic you are currently experiencing. The helplessness of being stuck in a bad traffic jam can cause serious stress, Hyundai’s Smart Cruise Control (SCC) is an easy way to lessen it.

How Does Smart Cruise Control (SCC) Work?

In order to activate Smart Cruise Control (SCC) you will need to:

  1. Make sure the vehicle is turned and the engine is running.
2. Press the “Cruise” button located on the top right of your steering wheel.

3. To activate SCC press the “Set Speed” button. Reduce or increase the speed by pressing up or down.

4. To adjust the distance between you and the vehicle in front of you press the “SCC” (car icon) button. The system is now on and will adjust speed automatically.

Here is a video from Hyundai explaining how to activate and adjust the system in more detail.
