Vectra's light moves

The Vauxhall Vectra will become the first modern upper-medium car to have the option of swivelling headlights which illuminate the direction of travel more effectively.

Next year, Vectra drivers will be able to pick Adaptive Forward Lighting technology, which swivels bi-xenon headlight at 90 degrees at intersections, and on narrow corners.

The system also bends light at up to 15 degrees, depending on the steering angle and car speed. It will also be available on all Signum models. Vauxhall eventually wants to offer the technology, developed in conjunction with Hella, on a wide range of its models.

Vauxhall managing director Kevin Wale said: 'The system offers a significant improvement in road safety and driving comfort. It is also further proof of Vauxhall's ability to innovate, because our goal is to make attractive technology affordable in all types of cars.'

Prices have yet to be announced.
