2013 Cadillac XTS Has LED Door Handles [Video]
Despite looking like any other American big sedan, the all-new 2013 XTS flagship has some very important features that it brings to this game. GM engineers have fitted LEDs not only in the headlights, but also in the mirrors, taillights and most impressively the door handles. These greet you in a specific pattern when you unlock the car, becoming ever brighter.
The interior is also something special, as the engineers wanted to create something throughly modern but which does not impede the driver’s vision of the road. The ‘theater’ arrangement is supposed to create a warm atmosphere.
“The new LED offerings now provide a new palette of color to bring more dramatic lighting effects that have never been available before,” said Christos Roustemis, Cadillac interior designer.
“We sketched each phase of the process to carefully choreograph how every important area inside and outside of the vehicle would come up and fade back down, similar to a production crew lighting a theater stage,” Roustemis said.
