Quick reflexes.

Stay one step ahead with available driver-assist technologies. Designed to detect and monitor the vehicle in front of you, Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) automatically applies the brakes when it senses a frontal crash will occur. And the Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS) alerts you when its radars detect a foreseeable impact with an object ahead.

The Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) system uses radar to automatically activate the brakes when detecting a potential collision.

Advanced Smart Cruise Control in the Optima Hybrid

Available Advanced Smart Cruise Control (ASCC) does more than help you maintain a constant speed. Using radar-based technology, ASCC will automatically slow down or accelerate your Optima Hybrid, as needed, to maintain a predetermined distance between you and the vehicle ahead of you.
