The adaptive wiper system is a world premiere and is featured by a series production vehicle for the very first time. The innovation: the windscreen washer fluid is sprayed and spread directly in front of the wiper blade. Little nozzles in a distributor rail above the wiper blade conduct the washer fluid directly before the blade on its return stroke.
Then the fluid is wiped away without delay so that the driver’s vision is obstructed as briefly as possible, and at the same time the amount of liquid used is reduced. In addition, when driving with an open top, the risk of being wet by the washer fluid is lessened. With the heated windscreen washer system, the washer fluid reservoir, the adaptive wiper system and the washer fluid hoses are heated, thus better protected against freezing up. This makes it easier to clean the windscreen at low outside temperatures.
