I have yet to drive my Crosstrek (2018) in fog. Isn't an issue where I live, only get fog very occasionally.

So...question is.....is there any other reason to use fog lights?

Thx.

cosmetic for me basically we rarely get Fog in New Jersey. i have 6000K LED Headlights Hi and low beam+ Fogs. If i lived where it gets foggy often then definitely would do yellow fogs. Oh and i also have 4 x 6 inch Round LED lights on the SSD light bar wired and all i barely turn those on either once again its more cosmetic then anything yet still wired and functional.

They do spread light in a very short area below the headlight beam. So they add a small bit of clarity at night, but not really enough to bother flicking the switch. I too live in an area that rarely see fog, so plan to swap them for a strong set of driving LEDs in the future.

The fog light also useful when driving at night during rains, it will help to find white road marker easier. Of course on this scenario yellow fog light is better, however during dry night driving, the light with white bulb may give better peripheral visibility.

In Italy use of fog lights without fog is illegal.
Anyway... I find XV LED fog lights not so powerful compare to others.
We have lots of fog days (Milan area), and they are useful.

I think that what the case when I lived in the UK and why I don't think to use them unless it's foggy.

i keep mine on all the time. in foggy conditions i do note a bit of more light. to be frank i go them as an add on to my base model because i like the way they look and the small assist in foggy conditions.

I replaced the bulbs with LEDs that are a bit brighter than the original bulbs but not annoyingly bright. They are useful when it's raining, which is common here in Georgia. They help show up the white lines and reflectors on the road.
