Audi A6: Now with all LED headlights

Audi A6

The new Audi A6 is now available with all LED headlights. Awesome looks!

This will be the first time that all-LED headlights will be used on a sedan–the units on the Lexus LS 600h use both an LED element and regular xenons–though the A7 Sportback and new A8 models get them too. The more familiar halogen or bi-xenon lights will still be offered as well.

The benefits of the LED headlights are numerous. The advanced units emit a strong white light that is similar to daylight, and use just 40 watts of electricity each, helping them reduce energy consumption.

They consist of just four one-chip and five two-chip LEDs to create dipped-beam light, and 24 white LEDs to make up the daytime running lights in each headlight. This keeps power consumption and maintenance down, and assures a good service life.
