Among the cleanest vehicles in the world, the hybrid Toyota Prius has become symbolic of a greener future. This particular model, the Prius XW20, was unveiled at the New York International Auto Show om 2003, providing yet more environmentally friendly features than its predecessor – including the trademark aerodynamic Kammback body. With the development leading to some 530 unique patents, the Prius XW20 remained in production until 2012. But the lighting technology used in these cars is more than 15 years old today.
Factory-fitted option was a halogen headlight with an H4 reflector that produces an average light beam even when new. In many cases, its light output has been further compromised as bulb heat and general ageing cause the reflective layer to peel off.
Needless to say, buying new or used original headlights for your Toyota Prius XW20 is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with H4 halogen headlights, there are upgrade kits that will fit inside your existing headlights.
These complete retrofit kits not only provide you with superior brightness and durability; they are also more affordable than average Toyota Prius xenon headlights with bulbs and ballasts, and since all components are brand new, they come with a 2-year warranty. Additional benefits over OEM headlights include Canbus-proof designs and effortless halogen-to-xenon conversions. What’s more, the levelling systems will work without any adjustments to the headlight connectors, and you can use any ballasts that you might already own to save further on xenon upgrades.
No matter which retrofit upgrade kit you pick, you will improve the light output considerably, making for safer and more enjoyable driving. And, of course, your Toyota Prius will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
