New Headlight option?


Maybe OT, maybe not.
I had an A service on one of the cars yesterday and saw these headlights on a 2019 C sedan as i was leaving. I have nevar seen them on MB before. Can anyone shed some light? Yeah, pun intended.

They look like the LED option headlights. There are also Active/advanced LED headlights which I have on my 19 C43, they turn as the steering wheel turns and self level. I'll try to take a pic tomorrow, they do look different externally.

For the 2019 model year, this was the new active LED lighting system for the C Class Mid-Cycle refresh. Whether they'll head over to the E Class is unknown, but it wouldn't surprise me to see them on the E when the E is refreshed.

These are the high performance standard LED lights on the facelifted C, equivalent to the standard LED on the E.

The upgraded ILS MULTIBEAM headlights are an option beyond this.

As stated these are facelift headlights. To me...they look like teeth.

To me, it looks more like MB copied the look Acura has used recently:

I hate the look. If they put them on the E, I'll have to move up to an S or a Bentley.

They look similar to Honda/Acura in that they use multiple segments. Honda/Acura uses a single row, where as the facelifted C lights are dual row, hence teeth.

I'm not sure about the look either. As mentioned, they look like MB copying Acura. But then again, once upon a time they all looked alike. Any info on the benefits of these over the existing 84 led matrix?

Not sure which one is "butt ugly" in your terms but to each his own opinion.
Here's what I got on my new 2019 C43 with the 319 Intelligent LED lighting package and I happen to love then, they look nice and the function of turning actively when the vehicle turns and gradually moving the beam outward and wider as conditions are appropriate is great instead of just going from low beam to high, they multi-focal.

Your headlights are way different from the original post of this thread.

And our intelligent lights on the W213 also turn as you corner.
