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 LED headlights, available for the FABIA, OCTAVIA, KAROQ and KODIAQ. 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 TAIL LIGHTS
LED technology also plays an important role in the tail lights and can be found among standard or optional equipment in the FABIA, 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 FRONTLIGHT SYSTEM (AFS)
Adaptive front headlight AFS is an integral to the safety lighting systems. It controls the intensity and geometry of headlights for dipped 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.
