Dynamic bend lighting (AFS)
The dynamic bend lighting can be switched on and off using the Volkswagen information system .
When driving round bends, the road is automatically better lit by the swivelling bulbs. The dynamic bend lighting works only at speeds above approximately 10 km/h (6 mph) and when the dipped beam headlights are switched on.
Static cornering lighting
When cornering slowly or in very tight bends, the static bend lighting integrated in the headlight will also be switched on automatically. The static bend lighting works only at speeds under approximately 40 km/h (25 mph).
The static bend lighting may, depending on the equipment option, be integrated in the fog light or in the front headlight.
WARNINGAccidents could be caused if roads are not sufficiently lit and the vehicle cannot be seen or is very difficult to be seen by other road users.
In cool or damp weather, the headlights, rear lights and turn signals may mist over briefly on the inside. This is normal and does not affect the service life of the lights on your vehicle.
