Awesome! We have that on our '20 Equinox too and I find it very useful. What I wish they ALSO had was if you hold the lock button that it would put all the windows UP too!

I have the SE w/ AWD... and yes the remote can open the tail gate. You just have to hold it a moment, as printed on the remote. The tail gate is balanced or assisted very well. Easy to close.

How about the windows down feature on the SE. Can you hold the unlock button and have driver and passenger windows both go down?

Also, I think I read only the drivers window had auto down and up using the door switch, and the passenger window does not have the automatic feature. Can you confirm this?

Thanks!

I could not make the front windows roll down by holding down the unlock button. The passenger window does not have the auto down functionality, just the driver's window. This is an SE AWD trim level.

Thanks. I can live with that. Drivers window auto down/up is almost a requirement these days for parking garages and fast food. I do know the SEL I looked at had the unlock-hold both window down feature. That's great for cooling your car down when entering on a hot day, but it isn't going to be a deal killer for me on an SE AWD. (y)

Can confirm this works on my SEL w/ Activity. I have to hold down the "unlock" button for at least five seconds before they open. That being said, I have to hold it down - as soon as I let go of the button the windows stop. It has auto-open for both front windows - maybe it's so you can crack the windows instead of all the way down.

I have a premium edition and I can confirm both front windows will go down if holding the unlock button. Like the above poster said it stops as soon as you let go of the button though.

I just walked out of a store and found my windows down. Played with the remote and couldn't get them to roll up. Opened the door and pushed the button to turn on the car, still nothing. I loaded my stuff into the bed then when I got in and started the car they worked normally.

Thank goodness I had a vague memory of reading something about this here and was able to find it. Guess I had too much stuff in my pocket with my key fob and accidentally pressed unlock from inside the store. And also thank goodness my iPhone was still in the center console, I left it because I was just running in quickly. I know, I shouldn't do that.

I think it's useless. why would you ever want to use that feature? They should have made it to set each remote for the user settings and move the seats.
It keeps you from being blasted with hot air like an oven when opening the door.

To move the seats requires memory seats which for reasons unknown (chip shortage?!?) frustratingly :mad: Hyundai did NOT put in despite having them in the Tuscon.

I guess if in a hurry on a hot day in a parking lot. Normally I would remote start with the AC on.

Tucson is a world car, made in various plants (five I think) around the world - I'm sure Hyundai made it a priority for it to have memory seats, being one of their volume sellers with much completion to keep up with/fend off- The SC is only made in bammy, and only sold in US/Can, and as a partial halo/odd duck car it gets what it needs to turn (some) heads and maybe bring footfall to the dealership and likely due to the chip shortage the memory seat was on the chopping block (i've never had them so I don't miss them and its no big deal for me)

I haven't tested the SC, but many windows (particularly with 1 touch auto up) are auto-reversing if they contact anything.
The USDOT has very strict rules on raising the windows via remote (and they get stricter almost every year).
For example, it has to use a second sensor that's range limited, so you have to be standing very close to the car. Theoretically, it's so you can see if anyone/anything gets pinched by the window, in case all the safety systems on the window fail. Mercedes accomplished this by having a separate infrared sensor in the door handle, so you had to be within a few feet of the door.

There's lots of things we don't get to have here here. My old car, overseas if the wiper rain sensor detected rain, it would close all the windows and sunroof. Closing windows and sunroof at a distance. Etc etc. All not available in the US due to stupid DOT rules.
