The RLX was the first luxury sedan to be equipped with standard Jewel Eye® LED headlights, which provide a whiter, brighter beam than High Intensity Discharge (HID) or halogen headlights while using less energy and lasting significantly longer.
- The low beams are comprised of eight LEDs that shine through 16 lenses. Each pair of lenses is precisely aimed to focus the LED beam over a longer and wider surface area, enabling you to see the road more clearly, without blinding oncoming traffic.
- The high beams activate and enable you to identify distant objects 200 milliseconds more quickly than conventional lights. At 60 MPH, the car will have traveled over 17 feet by that time.
- During the day, the 16 low-beam lenses act as daytime running lights, giving the RLX the same 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.
