* Option/accessory.

Active high beam

Active high beams is a function that uses cam-
era sensors in the upper edge of the windshield
to detect the headlights of approaching vehicles
or the taillights of the vehicle directly ahead.
When either of these is detected, the vehicle's
headlights will automatically switch from high
beams to low beams.

Active high beam is enabled by moving the lighting ring
on the steering wheel lever to 

.

The function can also detect street lighting.
When the camera sensor no longer detects an
approaching vehicle or a vehicle ahead, the head-
lights will return to high beams.

This function can be used in dark conditions
when the vehicle's speed is approx. 20 km/h
(approx. 12 mph) or higher.

If active high beams are deactivated when the
high beams are on, the headlights will automati-
cally switch to low beams.

When active high beams are activated, a white

 symbol will be displayed in the instrument

panel.

When high beams are on, the symbol will be blue.
For LED headlights, this applies even if the high
beams are partially dimmed, i.e. if the headlights
are illuminated with slightly more than low beams.

Vehicles with halogen headlights

When the camera sensor no longer detects the
headlights of approaching vehicles or the tail-
lights of a vehicle ahead, the headlights will
return to high beams after a second or so.

Vehicles with LED

 headlights*

If the active high beams are equipped with the
auto on/off function

4

, the headlights will return to

high beams a second or so after the camera sen-
sor no longer detects the headlights of approach-
ing vehicles or the taillights of a vehicle ahead.

Limitations for active high beams

The camera sensor on which the function is
based has limitations.

If this symbol and the message 

Active

High Beam

 

Temporarily

unavailable

 is displayed in the instru-

ment panel, switching between high

and low beams must be done manually. The light-
ing ring on the steering wheel lever can remain in
the 

 position. The 

 symbol will go out

when the message is displayed.

The same applies if this symbol along
with the message 

Windscreen

sensor

 

Sensor blocked, see

Owner's manual

 is displayed.

Active high beams may be temporarily unavailable
in certain situations, e.g. heavy fog or rain. When
active high beams become available again, or the
windshield sensors are no longer blocked, the
message will disappear and the 

 symbol will

be displayed.

WARNING

Automatic high beam is an aid in using the

best possible light based on prevailing condi-

tions.
The driver is always responsible for manually

switching between high and low beam when

traffic situations or weather conditions require

this.
