Bi-Xenon headlamps are a top-end solution available for the RAPID and SUPERB. The source of light radiation for both high and low beams is a Bi-Xenon discharge lamp, which offers excellent visibility, thrifty running and a long service life.
A winning combination of power, economic use and design is offered by full LED headlights, available for the OCTAVIA, KAROQ and KODIAQ. Full LED headlights use only highly luminous diodes as a light source. Their advantages include their longer life, greater resistance to shocks, lower power consumption due to high efficiency, and colour temperature more similar to daylight (and less tiring on the driver’s eyes). In other models, diodes are used for daytime running lights.
LED technology also plays an important role in the tail lights and can be found among standard or optional equipment in the RAPID, OCTAVIA, KAROQ, KODIAQ and SUPERB. The key benefits of LED include energy efficiency and, primarily, fast light-up that is mainly important for the brake lamps – the driver of the vehicle behind has more time to react. Other positive factors include long life and resistance to vibrations.
Adaptive front headlight AFS is an integral to the safety lighting systems. It controls the intensity and geometry of headlights for both dipped and high beam. The lighting automatically adapts to the different driving situations (urban traffic, country roads, motorways and off-road driving according primarily to the speed of the vehicle), driving modes and weather. Consequently, it offers optimal illumination of the road and hence a higher level of safety.
This system automatically turns the high beam off and on. The multi-function camera recognises oncoming traffic and vehicles ahead in the darkness and Auto Light Assist automatically dips the beam so as not to dazzle other road users.
This system provides improved safety by optimising illumination in all traffic situations. Instead of automatically switching the high beam off, a “mask” is projected onto the road in the area of the vehicle ahead or oncoming vehicles, if necessary. This means it is always possible to drive with high beam and take advantage of its long reach without dazzling other drivers or oncoming vehicles.
