A foggy-morning drive proved to be the perfect way to illustrate the adaptive front lighting system (AFS) in the 2014 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring.

    Very neat. However, I saw no other traffic so why weren't you running your high beams? I have noticed a marked reluctance to do so amongst quite a few folk in America. What's with that?

    wow, those move a lot more than I thought they would.

    and agentorange, it might have been low beams because " on a foggy morning " Although it wasn't thick fog it was still enough to see where the beams were pointing so it likely would have lit up nice and bright under high beams (I find my Mazda high beams actually glare off traffic signs too much even)

    that or they just ran with them because it was a perfect chance to get a video of how they work :)

    That is so neat, never seen a video of them actually in action before. Way to go Mazda.

    I am not impressed. The wandering beams are too slow to catch up with the car's speed through the curves. Also, there isn't enough cutoff on the left side. Any car approaching is going to hit their high beams and mutter "what the hell!"

    Looks like lighting is one area the CX-5 has a leg-up on over the CR-V!
