Range Rover Evoque: High beam assist

This feature of the Xenon lighting automatically selects and deselects high beam, under specific conditions of road lighting and in the absence of other vehicle’s lights. The system is only active when the ambient light drops below a predetermined level.

Note: It is not recommended that high beam assist is used while driving off road.

For High beam assist to become operational, the main lighting switch must be in the AUTO position (5), with low beam headlamps selected.

High beam assist will activate only when the vehicle speed exceeds 40km/h (25mph). The system will deactivate when vehicle speed drops below 24km/h (15mph).

To manually select high beam, move the stalk to the high beam position as normal. To return to High beam assist, move the stalk back to the central position.

To manually override to low beam from high beam, pull the stalk to the flash position (2) and High beam assist will be cancelled. To return to High beam assist, push the stalk to the high beam position (1) and then return it to the central position.

A green lamp in the instrument

A green lamp in the instrument pack illuminates when High beam assist is selected.

To turn off High beam assist, turn the main lighting control from Auto to headlamps.

This feature can be disabled/enabled via the Vehicle settings menu. See 56, VEHICLE INFORMATION AND SETTINGS MENU.

Note: The following may affect the operation of High beam assist:<>
- Highly reflective road signs.
- Vehicles with dim headlamps.
- Adverse weather conditions.
- Dirty sensor.
- Dirty, damaged, or misted windscreen.

Note: The system cannot be relied upon to activate or de-activate high beam in all possible circumstances. It remains the driver’s responsibility to ensure correct use of the headlamps at all times.

Note: Ensure that the forward facing sensors on the back of the rear view mirror are not blocked or obstructed.
