Skoda has developed a new adaptive lighting system that takes into account the speed of the car, how long it has been travelling at that speed, the levels of ambient light and even the weather in deciding what beam pattern to adopt.
Up to around 30mph, the lights give a wider beam pattern to illuminate the nearside of the road while avoiding blinding oncoming traffic.
As speeds increase, the beam pattern gets longer and more intense to give a longer field of vision.
If it is raining and the wipers have been on for a couple of minutes, there's a different illumination pattern from the left and right sides to help you pick out white lines in the centre of the road more easily.
There are also cornering lights and foglights that switch on independently to help you find the kerbside when taking bends.
The system has been developed by Skoda with help from Volkswagen Group engineers, and is due to be offered on VWs, Audis and Seats in future.
Our reviews are based on hard data and thorough testing in the real world.
