Xenon dual function directional headlamps - Angled lighting

Citroën C5 / Citroen C5 Owner's Manual / Driving / Xenon dual function directional headlamps - Angled lighting

With dipped beams or main beams, the Directional headlamps function turns the headlamps in the direction the road ahead is taking. Your vision on bends is considerably enhanced.

This function is activated once your vehicle speed reaches 10 km/h (6 mph) and stops when your speed decreases to 5 km/h (3 mph).

Note: An automatic correction of the beam height enables you not to dazzle other drivers.

Activation/Deactivation

Activated by default, this function can be activated/deactivated in the Main Menu of the instrument panel screen. To do so, select Vehicle parameters / Lighting / Directional headlamps.

The activated/deactivated status is retained when you switch off the engine.

Note: This function is not active when the vehicle is stationary, moving at very low speed, or in reverse gear.

This device is linked with the Angular lighting which lights up the inside of a bend when the vehicle speed is lower than 40 km/h (25 mph). This maximises the lighting at intersections and when parking, for example.

The angular lighting is deployed:

When the direction indicators are activated, and/or from a certain angle of rotation of the steering wheel.

Note: The angular lighting is deactivated when the directional headlamps are deactivated
