Active bending lights*

Updated 7/23/2018

Active bending lights are designed to provide maximum illumination in bends and junctions.

Cars with LEDLED (Light Emitting Diode) headlamps* can have active bending lights, depending on the car's equipment level.

P5-1507 Light pattern ABL

Headlamp pattern with function deactivated (left) and activated (right) respectively.

The LED headlamps can include the Active bending lights function, depending on the car's equipment level. Active bending lights follow steering wheel movements to provide maximum illumination in bends and junctions and thereby increase safety.

The function is activated automatically when the car is started. In the event of a fault in the function, the symbol illuminates in the driver display at the same time as the driver display shows an explanatory text.

The function is only active in weak daylight or darkness and only when the car is moving and dipped beam is switched on.

Deactivating/activating the function

The function is in activated mode when the car is delivered from the factory and can be deactivated/activated via the centre display in two ways:

Via the function view
