    Steering Responsive Headlights

    Those of you with Limited’s, do you think SRH makes a difference? Do you see a benefit? Do they really work?

    I was skeptical, but I've found them useful. Not so much when I'm tooling around town and the suburbs where street lighting is abundant. But driving on rural roads they are a benefit.

    Yeah, I disable them on the freeway or in lighted areas. But in rural areas where it’s dark, unbelievably helpful on winding roads! You can see all the way around. Been tempted to take some video. Will try and do that later this week.

    What is the benefit of disabling them? What does that do for you?

    I live in a semi-rural area and find them to be very helpful as well.

    I just do it not knowing the longevity of the moving parts.

    The SRH feature is secondary to the fact they are LED headlights which are superior to the halogen lighting on the other Crosstrek models. The halogen lights are rated "Poor" whereas the LED lighting is rated "Good"

    If you go to the Institute for Highway Safety website and view their page about the Crosstrek headlights https://www.iihs.org/iihs/ratings/ve...k-4-door-wagon, slide down to the details and view both tabs. The difference is tremendous and having LED headlights may be lifesaving.

    You will quickly understand why it is one of the reasons to consider buying a Limited model. The SRH feature is really a bonus.

    YES to all 3. The lighting on my 19 Limited is some of the best I've ever had (as long as the lenses are clean). Auto High-Beams is a nice feature too. VERY happy with the exterior lighting all around.
