First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

Main beam control (Light Assist)

The main beam control switches the main beam on and off again automatically within the limits of the system depending on environmental and traffic conditions as well as travelling speed  . The function is controlled by a sensor located on the inside of the windscreen above the interior mirror.

Automatic main beam control (Dynamic Light Assist)

The automatic main beam control (Dynamic Light Assist) can, working within the limits of the system, minimise or even stop dazzling of other road users  .

The system identifies other road users as well as their distance from own vehicle and covers part of the headlights appropriately to prevent disturbing other road users. If dazzling other road users cannot be prevented, the light distribution is automatically set to dipped beam headlights. The function is controlled by a camera located at the base of the interior mirror.

The automatic main beam control automatically switches the main beam on as of speeds of approx. 60 km/h and off again at speeds under approx. 30 km/h depending on whether there are vehicles ahead, whether there is oncoming traffic and also on other general and traffic conditions.

If the dynamic bend lighting is deactivated   or the headlight switch-over   is activated, the full beam lights are only switched on and off automatically. This is done depending on the vehicles ahead, oncoming traffic and the road lighting.
