Saab Bi-xenon cornering headlights function is really outstanding in practice, but some Saab owners inflicts them headaches because of malfunction.
Saab Optional cornering bi-xenon headlights provide better night vision. The steering-linked bulbs can swivel up to 15 degrees when negotiating a bend or corner above 15 kph. In highway driving above 120 kph, the low beam is also automatically raised slightly for improved illumination without dazzling on-coming drivers.
With a system that turns the headlights when you turn the steering wheel. Help further improve visibility on winding roads. At highway speeds the lights are raised slightly to provide a longer beam.
Those cornering headlights – on twisty unlit roads – are a minor miracle, look just below a shining example of this function at night driving on very curvy road (in this example Saab 9-3 Turbo X with Bi-xenon cornering headlights):
New Saab 9-5 is equipped with an intelligent new headlight system designed to sense speed, oncoming traffic and steering direction. It then swivels the beam for better visibility when cornering, and automatically switches between high and low beam. Clearly safer and very convenient.
