New ŠKODA OCTAVIA RS - Adaptive Lights
The system is automatically activated by the light sensors, which switch the headlights on in low light conditions. The AFS headlight control system changes the geometry of the light beam, adapting the light pattern on the road to different driving situations like: Load,Steering angle, Rain and Speed.The AFS optimises illumination and enhances safety by enabling quicker response to obstacles. It gradually shifts the light patterns so that it does not disturb the driver.
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 in the speeds 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 precision finish is a testament to the tradition of Czech glass grinders. Each taillight features two C-shaped light strips.
