Now that the clocks have gone back it’s more important than ever to light up so that you can be safe and be seen.
Headlamps have come along way since the days when everyone used the same Lucas sealed-beam unit. Today headlamps are a work of art in their own right. With that in mind Diesel Car picks out the top 5 car headlamp designs.
High-end headlights with LEDs are usually the preserve of more premium motors (like two others on our list) yet the SEAT bucks that trend. The new Leon boasts LED headlamps producing a light closer to natural daylight. It makes it easier to see, less dazzling for other drivers and looks cool too…
The Audi A8 is right at the very top end of the Executive ladder. It’s packed with some incredible award-winning technology, too. Such as the LED headlights. These aren’t any old LED headlights though. These are ‘Matrix Beam’ LED headlights. Or at least they are if you chose the red pill, Neo…
Peugeots, by their very nature have always had something of a feline look to them. The 308 carries on the lion look of Peugeot with its finely sculpted headlamps that look very much like the eyes of a cat. Meeow!
Mercedes-Benz S Class
