Adaptive Front Lighting: What It Does, How It Works, and Which Models Have It

Many new cars have so many features that its hard to keep them straight. The names of these features aren’t always self-evident either. For instance, Pre-Collision System. If you don’t know that this feature detects object in front of the vehicle, warns the driver, and applies braking pressure, then the name probably won’t help you figure it out.

What Adaptive Front Lighting Systems Do

Simply put, adaptive front lighting turns your headlights in the direction that your wheels are pointed. It also takes vehicle speed into account. This helps increase visibility, particularly on winding roads and dimly lit intersections. If you do a lot of night driving, this is a feature you’ll want to get.
