Active Dual Xenon Headlights

  • Active Dual Xenon Headlights swivel to follow curves in the road, which helps provide the best possible light distribution when driving in the dark.
  • They provide 200% more luminosity with xenon and 90% more light in bends than halogen.


  • The light pattern adds comfort and reduces night driving stress and fatigue.
  • The dynamic leveling system reduces the glare of headlights for drivers in oncoming cars, making it safer for everyone on the road.


  • Fully automatic Active Dual Xenon Headlights are on as soon as the vehicle starts.
  • When they’re not needed (e.g., in daylight or in reverse), the light sensor automatically switches them off.
  • A mini processor measures and analyzes steering wheel travel and rate, road speed, and lighting conditions; a small stepping motor reacts and adjusts the dynamic lighting quickly and precisely.
