The best illumination near or far: xenon light for full and dipped beam headlights gives you bright, clear illumination of the road ahead on both high and low beam.
Also known as bi-xenon lights, this feature uses xenon technology for both the dipped and full-beam settings of the headlights. Both the high beam and the dipped beam come from the same source: the light arc produced by the ionised xenon lamp. In contrast to conventional incandescent lamps, the bluish xenon light is brighter, clearer and offers better visibility.
The full beam is activated by lightly tapping on a control stalk mounted on the steering column. The bi-xenon system folds away a screen located in the path of the beam of the ellipsoid-technology xenon headlight.
Overall, this results in an even better visibility range and improved roadside illumination. An added benefit: the bi-xenon headlight system using ionised noble gas consumes less energy than conventional halogen headlights and has a much longer service life.
