The upcoming all-new 2014 Cadillac CTS luxury sport sedan combines light-emitting diode and high intensity discharge lights to create a sleeker new look for Cadillac, befitting the new sedan’s distinction of being the lightest car in its class.
The CTS sedan features 16 indirect fire LED lights on each headlamp 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 a turn indicator, helping eliminate additional lights and keeping a clean aesthetic. Together these LEDs function as day-time running lights, enabling a safety feature to add an element of drama to the front of the car.
The main headlights, called projectors, are also multi-purpose. A single HID element acts as both low and high beams. Active Forward Lighting helps drivers see more clearly through corners by turning with steering direction.
