2015 Porsche Macan S: Optional Lights
August 26, 2014
Because we upgraded our 2015 Porsche Macan S with the optional Premium package, it has adaptive headlights, or the Porsche Dynamic Lighting System as it's called.
It consists of bi-xenon lights that feature both dynamic and static cornering lights. The dynamic low beams swivel toward corners based on steering angle and vehicle speed while the static lights simply light up when the wheel is turned hard to one side or the other in tight quarters.
Together they make for a very effective system that rarely fails to provide excellent lighting coverage in almost any situation. The swivel rate of the headlights isn't overly jumpy like some systems, and even the static lights have enough power to make them useful. Can't say the same about every such system of this sort. I don't how much better it is than the standard setup, but this is one option I would go for on a Macan of my own.
