Hyundai Tucson: Safe Exit Warning(Sew) / Safe Exit Warning Operation

Collision warning when exiting your vehicle

When an approaching vehicle from the rear is detected while a door is being opened, the warning light on the side view mirror may blink, a warning message may appear on the instrument cluster, and an audible warning may sound.

  • Safe Exit Warning may warn you when your vehicle speed is below 2 mph (3 km/h), and the speed of the vehicle approaching the rear of your vehicle is above 4 mph (6km/h).


Safe Exit Warning may not operate in all situations and cannot avoid all collisions. To prevent serious injury or death:

  • Always check the surroundings before you or your passengers exit your vehicle.
  • Only change the settings after parking your vehicle at a safe location.
  • When other system’s warning message appears or audible warning is heard, Safe Exit Warning may not warn you.
  • You may not hear the audible warning of Safe Exit Warning if the surrounding environment is too noisy.
  • Safe Exit Warning may stop operating, or may not operate, or operate unnecessarily depending on the road conditions and surroundings.


  • After the engine is turned off, Safe Exit Warning may detect approaching vehicles for up to 10 minutes, but does not function after the doors are locked.
  • The images and colors in the instrument cluster may differ depending on the cluster type or theme selected from the settings menu.
