Adaptive LED Headlights
Designed to work at night, the system automatically analyses vehicles ahead or those approaching in the opposite direction, and automatically adjusts between high and low beams by switching LED bulbs on and off as necessary. This makes it possible to drive with the high beam on at all times, significantly improving visibility when driving at night, without dazzling other drivers. (Available as part of the optional Safety Pack on selected Sport Nav+ models at additional cost)
