① Instrument and switch lighting

When the headlights are switched on, the brightness of the instruments and switch lighting can be regulated to suit your requirements by turning the control  .

② Headlight range control

Depending on what level it is set to, the headlight range control   adjusts the position of the light cones in the headlights according to the load that the vehicle is carrying. This gives the driver the best visibility possible and means that oncoming traffic will not be dazzled  .

The headlights can only be adjusted when the dipped beam headlights are switched on.

To adjust, turn the control   to:
Setting Vehicle loada)
Front seats occupied and luggage compartment empty.
1 All seats occupied and luggage compartment empty.
2 All seats occupied and luggage compartment fully loaded. Towing a trailer with a low drawbar load.
3 Only the driver seat occupied and luggage compartment fully loaded. Towing a trailer with maximum drawbar load.

Dynamic headlight range control

There is no control ② for headlight range if the vehicle has dynamic headlight control. The headlight range is automatically adapted to suit the vehicle load as soon as the headlights are switched on.

Instrument cluster lighting

In vehicles with daytime running lights, the instrument cluster lighting switches off automatically in darkness and, for example, when driving through a tunnel. In this way, the driver is prompted to switch on the dipped beam so that the vehicle's rear lights are switched on   .

WARNING

Heavy objects in the vehicle can cause the headlights to dazzle and distract other road users. This could lead to accidents and serious injuries.

a) If you have different loads, you can select a position between the settings.
