ŠKODA Yeti - Lights
The LEDs, used as daytime running lights, also combine with the Bi-Xenon Curve Projector headlights to create a striking presence for the new Yeti. Increased light output and natural white colour of Xenon light (for low and high beam) causes less fatigue in low light conditions.
Highway driving requires a long spot reach, illuminating both the right and left lanes. The Interurban mode switches seamlessly to Highway mode so that the change in the light beam is fluent. Activated from 90 km/h.
This mode is closest to a normal passing beam, with both the right and the left headlight modules in default position. Activated at speed ranges of 0-15 km/h or 50-90 km/h.
Responding to the steering wheel angle and the speed of the car, the cornering light provides better illumination of the curve, enabling the driver to respond faster to any unforeseen obstacles. Activated from 10 km/h.
In the City mode, the light pattern distribution – wider and shorter than the Interurban mode – illuminates the whole of the road and the adjacent pavement. Activated at 15-50 km/h.
The static cornering light is integral to the front fog lights with the Corner function, offering better illumination in tight curves and casting more light on adjacent pedestrian crossings or parking spaces. Activated up to 40 km/h.
The cornering function uses the front fog lights to automatically illuminate the area in the direction the car is turning towards. It provides better illumination for curves with a small radius, adjacent pedestrian crossings and parking spaces.
The Electronic Differential Lock is best appreciated on a road with different surfaces on either side, for example dry tarmac on one side and ice, snow or water on the other. This system works together with the ABS sensors of the car.
The Electronic Control Unit (ECU) continually receives data from ABS wheel speed sensors on the driven wheels. If the ECU detects that one wheel is slipping, it applies brake pressure to match its speed to the second, non-slipping wheel. It also directs torque to the wheel with better traction.
The advantages of EDL are most obvious during acceleration or driving uphill with low traction under one of the driven wheels.
