Adaptive Light Control
Depending on the steering angle and other parameters, the light from the headlight follows the course of the road.
To avoid blinding oncoming traffic, the Adaptive Light Control does not swivel to the opposite lane when the vehicle is at a standstill.
In tight curves, for instance, on mountainous roads or when turning, additional, cornering light is switched on that lights up the inside of the curve when the vehicle is moving below a certain speed.
The cornering light is automatically switched on depending on the steering angle or, where applicable, the use of turn signals.
When driving in reverse, the cornering lights may be automatically switched on regardless of the steering angle.
Adaptive headlight range control
The adaptive headlight range control feature balances out acceleration and braking processes as well as the vehicle load conditions in order to avoid blinding oncoming traffic.
Automatic High Beam Assistant
The Automatic High Beam Assistant detects other road users early on and automatically switches the high beams on or off depending on the traffic situation.
The Automatic High Beam Assistant ensures that the high beams are switched on, whenever the traffic situation allows. In the low speed range, the high beams are not switched on by the system.
The system responds to light from oncoming traffic and traffic driving ahead of you, and to ambient lighting, for instance in towns and cities.
