Comparing LEDs with Halogen Headlights

One of the simplest and most cost-effective upgrades to an EcoSport’s headlight would be the replacement of the stock bulb with an LED emitter (some refer to this as “LED bulb” but technically, it is not a “bulb”, but rather, an “emitter”). About a year ago, I’ve upgraded our headlights to an LED, and performed a comparison with the stock halogen bulb.

Clearly, LED emitters illuminate the road far better than stock bulbs. Always install LEDs properly by directing the low beam to the ground, to avoid causing glare to oncoming vehicles.
