2014 Acura MDX: Getting Used to the LED Headlights

November 18, 2013

2014 Acura MDX

At first, I wasn't a fan of the Jewel Eye LED (light-emitting diode) headlights on our long-term 2014 Acura MDX. The five individual elements inside the headlight housing were hard to get used to in the daylight. But over the weekend I discovered that they look much better at night.

When I drove around after dark, the headlight beam was clear, giving a well-lit path down the road and they became much more attractive as well. While the row of LEDs that light up when you remotely unlock our Cadillac ATS are elegant and crisp, and the headlight beams are powered by HID's, Acura's design is appealing too.

All things being equal in terms of headlight functionality, which style of design would you choose?
