The Auto Scan feature helps the driver easily identify the vehicle condition, and includes 157 different codes for ways that the car can break down, 51 types of driving record, and 19 types of sensor information. The Scan Drive feature provides vehicle condition monitoring, eco-index, and black box software, using T-map traffic information. It also has eco-mode, providing a real-time fuel efficiency ranking, and a car diary, providing a periodic driving record.

The Smart Auto Scan feature consists of an exclusive scanner and mobile application set. The driver can easily use it, as they set up the scanner via the On-board Diagnostics (OBD2) port, and download the application. The scanner can be set up in gasoline and diesel vehicles having OBD2.
