Vauxhall Astra's IntelliLux LED Matrix headlights adapt in accordance with driving environment

With winter well upon us, and the nights continuing to draw in, the British built Vauxhall Astra IntelliLux LED Matrix headlights can help drivers keep safe on the roads this cold season.

The lights, which boast adaptive, glare-free permanent high-beam lamps help drivers to see further ahead in the dark, allowing them to recognize potential hazards earlier, before they would appear in the cone of normal headlights.

The lights are consisted of 16 LED segments, eight on each side of the vehicle. As soon as the vehicle exits an urban area the system switches the high beam on and then automatically and constantly adapts both the length and shape of the light cone for every traffic situation.

Stuart Harris, Vauxhall's Head of Carline Brand commented: "Vauxhall has always strived to make technological innovations affordable and available, and IntelliLux LED Matrix lighting is the latest example of this. The Brit-built Astra is the first car in its class to get this technology that provides outstanding night time performance, enhancing safety for the driver and those around them."
