Ioniq 5 lane assist

You’re all set for an affordable electric car with Hyundai’s newest IONIQ 5 and its futuristic design.
Starting at around $40,000, the IONIQ 5 offers clean emissions and a considerable amount of electronic safety features, giving a better driving experience and greater road safety.
However, there are times when you’ll want to turn certain assists off, as these can hinder rather than enhance your trip.
This brief guide will look at Lane Assist on the Hyundai IONIQ5 and how you can turn it off. It’s here to give you a quick overview. For detailed information, consult your owner’s manual.

How does Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) work on the IONIQ 5?

As you’d expect from the terminology, the Lane Keeping Assist helps your IONIQ 5 to stay within lane markings.
If your car leaves the lane without indicating, the assist will intervene, helping you get back into your lane.
This works via a front camera above the windshield that detects the markings on the road. Therefore, it knows when you stray too far toward the outside of your lane. A visual indication on your car’s dashboard shows you which way you’re drifting.
When you drift too far to the left or right, the green indicator light will flash green, and the steering wheel will make adjustments to keep your car in your lane. If you indicate, though, the Lane Keeping Assist won’t intervene, allowing you to change lanes to overtake or exit a highway.
This feature is turned on if you’re going at least 40 mph.

Safety first!

LKA doesn’t mean you can take your hands off the steering wheel! It isn’t a self-driving system!
If you take your hands off the steering wheel for several seconds, a warning will pop up on your dashboard. This instructs you to keep your hands on the steering wheel and comes with an audible alarm.
At all times, it’s imperative to keep safety standards high. Lane-Keeping Assist can help you drive safer and prevent accidents, so make sure you’re always aware and alert if you turn it off!

Turning off Hyundai IONIQ 5 Lane Keep Assist

Before disabling your Lane Keeping Assist entirely, consider opting for a warning instead of steering assistance.
To do this, follow the instructions below:

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Select Driver Assistance.
  3. Choose Lane Safety.

Here, you’ll see three options. You can choose from the following:

  • Active
  • Warning only
  • Off

Here’s where you can turn the IONIQ 5 Lane Assist Off entirely. The lane indicator light in your instrument cluster will disappear.
If you select Active, your car will steer and warn you from swerving on roads.
Should you choose Warning only, you’ll receive an audible warning when you drift out of your lane. The Lane Keeping Assist won’t intervene with your steering.

How to change the warning volume for the IONIQ 5 Lane Assist

You can adapt the warning volume level by following these instructions:

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Go to Driven Assistance.
  3. Choose Warning Volume.
  4. Adjust your desired alert volume.

Hyundai IONIQ 5: turn off Lane Assist

The easiest way to turn off IONIQ 5’s Lane Keeping Assist is as below:

  • Press and hold the lane-driving assist button on your steering wheel for at least 3 seconds.
    • If you don’t hold the lane driving assist button long enough, only the lane following assist (LFA) will be turned on or off.
  • The indicator light on the wheel will turn gray.

Repeat this process to turn the Lane Keeping Assist back on.

Repeat this process at every restart

When you restart your IONIQ 5, the LKA (Lane Keeping Assist) turns on. You might find that frustrating, but there’s – unfortunately – no way around it.
Your best option is to add disabling Lane Keeping Assist to your startup routine. Instructions for this can be found above.
