‘Magic’ Astra lighting system wins top European award

The new Opel Astra has won the ‘Safetybest 2015’ award with its trendsetting adaptive IntelliLux LED matrix light system.

The prize is awarded by the Autobest jury consisting of specialised independent journalists from 26 European countries. The opinion of the jury was: “The matrix light technology is a breakthrough in car lighting.”

After extensive tests performed by Autobest jury members, the system proved to be so effective it earned the nickname ‘magic.’

The groundbreaking IntelliLux LED matrix light system enables driving with glare-free high beams and will be available in the compact class for the first time in the Astra at a surcharge comparable to that of conventional lighting systems.

The system is much more than a pure LED high beam as offered by competitors. The intelligent and dynamic system automatically adapts to the current traffic conditions and always offers the best possible illumination. With the introduction of the powerful LED matrix light, Opel is making state-of-the-art light technology previously only available in more expensive luxury class vehicles available to a wider audience.
