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, located at the rear of the rear-view mirror, are not blocked or obstructed.

ADB evaluates the road scene ahead of the vehicle. ADB automatically adapts the high beam light distribution according to the position of the preceding and oncoming traffic.

ADB is enabled when Adaptive Front Lighting System (AFS) is enabled.

ADB activates 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).

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

  1. Select Exterior lighting in the Vehicle settings menu via the instrument panel.

  2. Select Headlights High Beam.

  3. Select Adaptive Driving Beam ON or OFF or AHBA.

Pull and release the lighting control to manually override to dipped beam from ADB. Push the lighting control and hold for more than one second to return to ADB. The instrument panel warning lamp illuminates.

Push and release the lighting control to manually select normal high beam. Push the lighting control and hold for more than one second to return to ADB.

Rotate the lighting control to the dipped beam position 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.
