2017 Range Rover Evoque


The Auto High Beam Assist (AHBA) feature 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.


It is not recommended that AHBA is used while driving off road.

For AHBA to become operational, the lighting control must be in the AUTO (5) position, with dipped beam headlights selected.

The instrument panel warning lamp illuminates when AHBA is selected. See AUTO HIGH BEAM ASSIST (AHBA) (GREEN).

AHBA only activates when the vehicle's speed exceeds 25 mph (40 km/h). The system deactivates when the vehicle's speed drops below 15 mph (24 km/h).

To manually select high beam, move the lighting control to the high beam position, as normal. To return to AHBA, move the lighting control back to the central position.

To manually override to dipped beam from high beam, pull the lighting control to the flash position (2). AHBA is canceled. To return to AHBA, push the lighting control to the high beam position (1) and then return it to the central position.

To switch AHBA off, turn the lighting control from AUTO to headlights.

This feature can be disabled or enabled via the Vehicle Settings menu. See INSTRUMENT PANEL MENU.

The hand of traffic can also be selected within the instrument panel menu. As default, this is set to be opposite the hand of drive, so if the vehicle is Left Hand Drive (LHD), the hand of traffic is Right Hand Drive (RHD).


For vehicles fitted with a navigation system, following each ignition cycle the hand of traffic resets according to the region in which the vehicle is being driven.

The following may affect the operation of AHBA:

  • Highly reflective road signs.

  • Dimly lit road users, e.g., cyclists or pedestrians.

  • Adverse weather conditions, e.g., rain or fog.

  • Dirty or obscured sensor.

  • Dirty, damaged or misted windshield.

  • Oncoming vehicles partially obscured by a central highway barrier.

  • An icy or frosted windshield.


Make sure to defrost the windshield during winter conditions.


The system cannot be relied upon to activate or deactivate high beam in all possible circumstances. It remains the driver’s responsibility to use the headlights correctly at all times.


Make sure that the forward-facing sensors on the back of the rear-view mirror are not blocked or obstructed.
