Lighting

The following lighting functions are

available with light switch in position

AUTO or 9.

Town light

Activated automatically at a speed up

to approx. 55 km/h and in situations

with exterior ambient light. The light is

wide and symmetrical. A special

beam pattern is designed to avoid

glare for other road users.

Country light

Activated automatically at a speed

above approx. 55 km/h when driving

in rural areas. The illumination of the

current lane and the side of the road

is improved. Oncoming and

preceding vehicles are not dazzled.

Curve light

Particular LEDs, based on steering

angle and speed, are additionally

triggered to improve lighting in

curves. This function is activated at

speeds from 40 km/h to 70 km/h and

reacts to steering angle.

Corner light

When turning off, depending on the

steering angle and the turn signal

light, particular LEDs are triggered

which illuminate the direction of

travel. It is activated up to a speed of

40 km/h.

Reverse parking function

To assist driver's orientation when

parking, both corner lights and

reversing light illuminate when

headlights are on and reverse gear is

engaged. They remain illuminated for

a short time after disengaging reverse

gear or until driving faster than

7 km/h in a forward gear.

High beam assist

This feature allows the high beam to

function as main driving light at night.
The camera in the windscreen

detects the lights of oncoming or

preceding vehicles. Each LED on

right or left side can be triggered or

faded out particulary according to the

traffic situation. This gives the best

light distribution without glaring other

road users. Once activated, high

beam assist remains active and

switches high beam on and off

depending on surrounding

High beam assist includes a special

motorway mode. When driving faster

than 115 km/h on motorways, the light

beam becomes smaller to avoid

glaring of oncoming traffic. When

following vehicles ahead or passing,

mirror glaring for these vehicles is

reduced.
