The Adaptive Driving Beam (ADB) system cannot be relied upon to activate or deactivate high beam in all possible circumstances. The driver remains responsible for the correct use of the headlights at all times.


Make sure that the forward-facing sensors on the rear of the rear-view mirror are not blocked or obstructed.

ADB is activated automatically once the vehicle's speed reaches 40 km/h (25 mph) and the camera does not detect an urban environment. ADB automatically deactivates when the vehicle's speed slows to 24 km/h (15 mph), when ambient light exceeds a predetermined level or when the gear selector is in Reverse (R).

ADB is defined as a system that evaluates the road scene ahead of the vehicle and automatically adapts the light distribution according to the position of the preceding and oncoming traffic. ADB is enabled when the lighting control is in the AUTO position and the ambient light level is below a predetermined level.


When ADB is active, the blue high beam indicator lamp remains illuminated, as the headlights will deploy partial or full high beam at this time. See HIGH BEAM (BLUE).

The driver can disable and re-enable the ADB system at any time:

  1. Select Exterior lighting in the Vehicle settings menu, via the instrument panel. See INSTRUMENT PANEL MENU.

  2. Select Headlights high beam.

  3. Select Adaptive Driving Beam ON or OFF.

Pull and release the lighting control to manually override to dipped beam from ADB. The instrument panel warning lamp illuminates.

Push and release the lighting control to return to ADB. The instrument panel warning lamp illuminates. See HIGH BEAM (BLUE).

Repeated pushing of the lighting control toggles the operation of the high beam between automatic and manual.

Rotate the lighting control to the dipped beam to switch the ADB system off.

The following may affect operation of the ADB system:

  • Highly reflective road signs.

  • Dimly lit road users, e.g., cyclists or pedestrians.

  • Adverse weather conditions, e.g., rain or fog.

  • A dirty or obscured sensor.

  • A dirty, damaged, or misted windscreen.

  • Oncoming vehicles, partially obscured by a central motorway barrier.

  • An icy or frosted windscreen.
