Hyundai Elantra: Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW) / Function operation

Function warning

Rear Cross-Traffic Safety system will warn the driver when a collision is imminent.

Collision Warning

  • To warn the driver of an approaching vehicle from the rear left/right side of your vehicle, the outside rearview mirror will blink and a warning will appear on the cluster. At the same time, an audible warning will sound. If the Rear View Monitor is operating, a warning will also appear on the infotainment system screen.
  • The function will operate when all the following conditions are satisfied:
    -- The gear is shifted to R (Reverse)
    -- Vehicle speed is below 5 mph (8 km/h)
    -- The approaching vehicle is within approximately 82 ft. (25 m) from the left and right side of your vehicle
    -- The speed of the vehicle approaching from the left and right is above 3 mph (5 km/h)


If the operating conditions are satisfied, there will be a warning whenever the vehicle approaches from the left or right side even though your vehicle speed is 0 mph (0 km/h).


Take the following precautions when using Rear Cross-Traffic Safety system:

  • For your safety, change the Settings after parking the vehicle at a safe location.
  • If any other function’s warning message is displayed or audible warning is generated, Rear Cross- Traffic Safety system’s warning message may not be displayed and audible warning may not be generated.
  • You may not hear the warning sound of Rear Cross-Traffic Safety system if the surrounding is noisy.
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Safety system may warn the driver late or may not warn the driver depending on the road and driving conditions.
  • The driver should hold the responsibility to control the vehicle. Do not solely depend on Rear Cross-Traffic Safety system. Rather, maintain a safe braking distance, and if necessary, depress the brake pedal to reduce driving speed or to stop the vehicle.
