2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA LED High Performance Headlamps Features
Mercedes-Benz gave the GLA a redesign for the 2018 model-year, with stylish interior and exterior design updates, and a host of new features, including the high-tech LED High Performance headlamps.
Benefits of GLA LED High Performance Headlamps
The LED High Performance headlamps, which are available optionally on the GLA250 and standard on the AMG GLA45, replace the currently available bi-xenon headlamps. Alongside brilliant illumination, these headlamps are characterized by a color temperature similar to daylight and relieve the strain on the eyes when driving at night. The LED High Performance headlamps also benefit from lower energy consumption. They consume around 60 percent less energy than xenon and approximately 70 percent less than halogen.
Projector Beam Technology of LED High Performance Headlamps
The GLA’s low-beam headlamps work with LED projector-beam technology and the high beam with LED reflector technology. Indicators, daytime running lamps and position lights are designed as multifunctional fiber-optic cables and enable an unmistakable style through higher degrees of design freedom. For added convenience, changing a bulb is no longer necessary over the entire lifetime of the car.
GLA LED High Performance Taillights
The GLA also feature LED High Performance tail lamps. They come with a multi-level function, with modes for full brightness by day, a medium level for driving during the night and a lower level when at a standstill during the night. Also, brake lights and indicators are controlled in three intensities as well. With this multi-level function, the GLA automatically offers the correct level of brightness for all light, weather and traffic situations.
