All MDX models are equipped with Jewel Eye® LED headlights. In addition to giving the MDX an elegant appearance, the five LEDs on each side provide a whiter, brighter beam, use less energy and last significantly longer than HID or halogen headlights.
- The low beams are comprised of the outer three LEDs on each side. Each lens is precisely aimed to focus the LED beam over a longer and wider surface area so you see the road more clearly while not blinding oncoming traffic.
- When the high beams activate the two inner LEDs on each side, you can identify distant objects 200 milliseconds sooner than with conventional lights. At 60 MPH, the vehicle will have traveled over 17 feet in that time.
- During the day, all ten lenses act as daytime running lights, giving the MDX a distinctive light signature both day and night.
- Even when turned off, the reflective surfaces behind the lenses give the lights a bright, jewel-like appearance.
