Six Vehicles With The Most Eye-Catching Lighting Page 3

February 8, 2015

Acura TLX
Jewel-eye headlamps

Acura hasn’t exactly seduced shoppers with some of its recent styling and design efforts; the most notable misstep was the poorly received ‘beak’ grille that made its debut with the last-generation TL. Yet we see plenty of signs of hope that the brand is carving out a new design identity, and it’s the ‘jewel-eye’ headlight design, destined for its entire lineup, that we find particularly attractive and eye-catching.

The array uses a set of outer LEDs for low beams with less ‘dazzle’ than HIDs, while inner LEDs serve as high beams with a longer range than halogens, and it uses the entire array at lower power for a very distinctive DRL. In all, there are 10 light sources and 20 beams of light in the RLX, or 8 LEDs and 16 lenses in the TLX and other models.
