The new Hyundai Santa Fe has plenty of quality features, many of which come standard. On range-topping models like the Limited and Ultimate here at Colonial Hyundai of Downingtown there's plenty of standard options, and that includes rear parking sensors. Many people ask us how they work and what they allow you to do, and today we're explaining it in greater detail.

Rear parking sensors on vehicles like the 2019 Santa Fe are the little circles on the bumper of your vehicle, and when you're in reverse gear, the sensors are activated and will scan the area behind you for any other vehicles or objects in your path. If you start backing toward an object, the rear parking sensors will give you an audible alert, which gets louder and more frequent as you get closer until it turns into a continuous tone if a collision is imminent.

The sensors are positioned to see behind you and around the sides on the curved end of the bumper, so when combined with a standard rearview camera, you're going to have plenty of added confidence backing up and into different parking spaces or going in reverse. The sensors on Hyundai vehicles like the Santa Fe use electromagnetic waves over ultrasonic and optical rear parking sensors from other brands, which means they'll be able to function clearly at a high level in variety of conditions, while also blending in and not drawing attention to your vehicle as rival brands might.

You can learn more about rear parking sensors, standard on the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited and Ultimate editions here at Colonial Hyundai of Downingtown, where we'd be happy to provide you with all the details, answer any questions you might have, and arrange a test drive at your convenience.
