When the all-new 2014 Cadillac CTS showed its face at the 2013 New York Auto Show, one of the design elements that stood out immediately was the sleeker, more stretched out design of the head lights. And within each of these headlamps, are a legion of light emitting diodes (LEDs) that put Audi to shame.
In each headlamp housing of the 2014 CTS, there are 16 indirect fire LED lights, with eight LEDs beginning on the fender of the car and an additional eight LEDs continuing down the front bumper. The eight LED lights on the front bumper also double as turn signal indicators, helping eliminate additional lights while making for a clear appearance. The 2014 CTS is the first Cadillac to do so.
Together, these LEDs function as day-time running lights, allowing a safety feature to double as an element of drama to the front of the car. The single HID projector lamp also doubles as both the low and high beam light, while Active Forward Lighting assists the driver through the corners at night.
Just imagine the lighting goodness that the increased surface space of the full-size Cadillac LTS will almost definitely bring.
