Hyundai Tucson: Convenience Features / High Beam Assist (HBA)

High Beam Assist automatically adjusts the headlights between high beam and low beam depending on the light detected from oncoming vehicles or vehicles in front using the front view camera.


Refer to the "Driver Assistance Sensors" section in Chapter 7 for the location and the general precautions of front view camera.

High Beam Assist Settings

With the ignition switch ON, go to the Settings menu to turn on High Beam Assist and deselect to turn off the function in the instrument cluster or infotainment system.


  • User Settings > Lights > High Beam Assist (for cluster type)
  • Setup > Vehicle > Lights > High Beam Assist (for infotainment system type)


Only change the settings after parking your vehicle at a safe location.

High Beam Assist Operation

  • After selecting High Beam Assist from the settings menu to operate High Beam Assist:
    - Place the headlight switch in the AUTO position and push the turn signal lever toward the instrument cluster. High Beam Assist () indicator light illuminates.
    - When High Beam Assist is enabled, high beams turn on when the vehicle speed is above 25 mph (40 km/h) and the High Beam () indicator light illuminates. When the vehicle speed is below 15 mph (25 km/h), high beams do not turn on and the indicator light illuminates in white.
  • When High Beam Assist is operating:
    - If the turn signal lever is pulled toward you when the high beams are off, the high beams turn on. When you let go of the turn signal lever, High Beam Assist operates again.
    - If the turn signal lever is pulled toward you when the high beams are on by High Beam Assist, the low beams turn on and High Beam Assist turns off.
    - If the turn signal lever is pushed away from you, the high beams turn on and High Beam Assist turns off.
    - If the headlight switch is moved from AUTO to another position (headlight/position/off), the corresponding light turns on and High Beam Assist turns off.
  • When High Beam Assist is operating, high beam switches to low beam if:
    - The headlights of an oncoming vehicle are detected.
    - The tail lights of a front vehicle are detected.
    - The headlight or tail light of a motorcycle or a bicycle is detected.
    - The surrounding ambient light is bright enough so high beams are not required.
    - Streetlights or other lights are detected.


The images and colors in the instrument cluster may differ depending on the cluster type or theme selected from the settings menu.
