The current 5 Series BMW is now also available with a variable light distribution. In conjunction with intelligent driver assistance the headlamps are now switched according to the current driving situation.
The ‘town light’ is activated at speeds below 50 kmph and offers a wider light distribution for easy recognition of obstacles, particularly on the left hand side.
For motorway illumination the fog lights add to the spread at speeds of up to 70 kmph. At higher speeds the low beam is raised to reach further.
An adaptive bending light is achieved by swivel according to the steering angle. A cornering function is activated at speeds below 40 kmph either with activation of the indicator or at particularly tight bends..
