As lighting advances, so too do headlight options used in luxury automobiles. While laser headlights have gotten a lot of attention in 2014 after Audi and BMW have incorporated them in their latest models, Mercedes isn’t about to follow.
Instead, the German automaker has developed the next generation of LED headlights that are said to provide superior illumination compared to the 24 LED headlights currently found on CLS models. This is thanks to the incorporation of additional LED bulbs, which total at 84. But will these new headlights outshine impressive laser alternatives?
“LED technology achieves this performance at markedly lower costs and with a manageable degree of complexity.”
Mercedes is continuing to explore the potential of this bulb type with High Range LED high beams which may be available on Mercedes headlamps in the near future.
Do you agree with Mercedes approach to LEDs as the more practical choice for new auto headlights?
