BMW 3: Adaptive light functions

Concept

Adaptive light functions enable dynamic illumination of the roadway.

General information

The adaptive light functions may consist of one system or multiple systems, depending on the equipment version:

  • Adaptive Light Control.
  • Cornering light.

Activating

Press the button on the light switch element.

The LED in the button lights up.

The adaptive light functions are active when the drive-ready state is switched on.

Adaptive Light Control

General information

Depending on the steering angle and other parameters, the light from the headlight follows the course of the road.

To avoid blinding oncoming traffic, the Adaptive Light Control does not swivel to the opposite lane when the vehicle is at a standstill.

Cornering light

In tight curves, for instance on mountainous roads or when turning, an additional, cornering light is switched on that lights up the inside of the curve when the vehicle is moving below a certain speed.

The cornering light is automatically switched on depending on the steering angle or, where applicable, the use of turn signals.

When driving in reverse, the cornering lights may be automatically switched on regardless of the steering angle.

Adaptive headlight range control

The adaptive headlight range control feature balances out acceleration and braking processes as well as the vehicle load conditions in order to avoid dazzling oncoming traffic. Illumination of the road is optimized.
