Philips Vision headlamps named Test Winner 2018 by Auto Bild

Suresnes, France – Auto Bild is Germany’s leading car magazine. This best-selling weekly publication carries comparative road tests and industry news alongside features on spare parts and upgrade accessories.

Philips halogen headlamps declared winners

With the approach of long winter nights, Auto Bild recently tested 22 pairs of top-performing H4 headlamp bulbs for light quality, beam length, brightness and accuracy. Philips Vision bulbs, developed by Lumileds, emerged as the victors and have been named Auto Bild Test Winner 2018. In addition, six other Philips headlight bulbs were among the ten best lamps tested[1].

Expressing his satisfaction at the verdict, Thorsten Brodda, Marketing Manager DACH at Lumileds Germany said: "We are delighted to be named Test Winner 2018 for our Philips Vision headlamps, which are engineered for the performance and safety that are vital to drivers and road-users. Road safety starts with seeing and being seen, and that’s where top-quality car lighting counts.

Better vision for safer, more enjoyable driving

Split seconds can make a crucial difference to driver safety, even more so in the dark winter months when visibility suffers. Philips Vision headlight bulbs provide up to 30% more vision[2] together with excellent light-beam performance. These high-quality, ultra-durable headlight bulbs are designed to help drivers spot potential hazards sooner, enabling them to react faster, whatever the road conditions.

A clearer view of the road ahead makes for a more enjoyable drive, too. Placing the vehicle on the road more precisely, judging corners more accurately, and better sight of braking distances all contribute to driver satisfaction as well as safety.

Recognized as among the very best worldwide, Philips automotive lighting products are standard-fit items on many of today’s most prestigious car brands. Philips Vision headlight bulbs enhance both road safety and driving comfort, their performance earning Auto Bild’s seal of approval. As the nights draw in, why choose anything else?

Philips Vision headlight bulbs are available in H1, H3, H4, H7, H11, HB3 and HB4 at major automotive resellers throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
