Default Full LED Headlamps

2010 CLS Full LED Headlamps

Another distinguishing feature comes in the form of the full LED headlamps, which are the world's first to offer all of the regular dynamic light functions using LED technology. This innovation boasts an impressive design - inside they are divided into three arrow-shaped layers from top to bottom: the upper layer contains an LED indicator, beneath which is a striking LED side light offering low beam functions.

The side light can also be seen when the dipped beam function is switched on, thereby creating a novel and separate night-time design and distinctive look. The lowest level of the headlamp houses the main beam and night-view functions. A total of 71 LEDs not only provide an unmistakable appearance, but also a significantly enhanced view of the road compared with previous systems.

There are manufacturers offering full LED headlights for some time, few are Lexus LS series, Audi R8 and Cadillac Escalade. Of-course everyone have their own versions but technology is old now and new version will keep coming and Mercedes is offering LED headlights for the first time in their models.

CLS has full LED Head lamps as standard - Up front Mercedes-Benz opted for full LED headlamps, the full range of turn signals, running lamps, low and high-beam functions purely from LEDs. In CLS all of the regular dynamic light functions use LED technology.

In Lexus LS 600h Low beam, front position light and sidemarker functions are performed by LEDs; high beam and turn signal functions use filament bulbs.

In the case of Audi R8 V10, you are right. This was the first head light with first All LED headlamps, but are optional, with additional cost of 5000 USD.

Cadillac Escalade Platinum do not have LED for turn signals and fog lamps.
