New Intellilux LED Headlight

Vauxhall will launch the next-generation of IntelliLux LED lighting with the all-new Insignia Grand Sport in 2017.

 

In addition to award-winning matrix technology, the more refined and sophisticated IntelliLux LED headlights feature new functions that significantly improve night-time visibility.

 

Having developed its matrix lighting technology in recent years, Vauxhall has introduced a 32-light system within the Insignia Grand Sport’s ultra-slim headlamps.

 

The additional LED segments in the headlamps give smoother transitions between lighting patterns to suit every driving condition.

 

By automatically and constantly adapting the range and distribution of light from the headlamps, the new Insignia Grand Sport delivers a brighter light in a precise manner. Without dazzling other road users.

 

New functions include curve and spotlight illumination. When taking a curve with the full beam engaged, the light intensity automatically rises based on the steering angle, in order to increase the illumination and help the driver to see the road situation ahead.

 

Each headlight also features a high-beam spotlight for additional illumination up to 400 metres ahead, which further improves the Insignia Grand Sport’s long-range visibility.

 

“The new Astra shows the benefits of our IntelliLux LED headlights, and our engineers have been able to take it to another level with the Insignia Grand Sport,” said Ingolf Schneider, Engineering Group Manager, Exterior Lighting. “The second generation of this innovative technology introduces new features that improve visibility, and therefore safety, when driving at night.”

 

The IntelliLux LED Matrix headlights first featured on the Vauxhall Monza concept in 2013 and were then introduced on the award-winning Astra last year.

 

Initially featuring a 16-light system, Vauxhall has been able to enhance the technology significantly with the second generation, incorporating twice as many LED segments while maintaining an ultra-slim appearance.
