Rain-Sensing & Headlight Integrated Wipers
RLX models have sensors to detect rainfall. When the wipers are set in the AUTO position, they automatically engage depending on the amount of detected rainfall. When the headlights are set in the AUTO position and the wipers are used several times within a certain interval, they also automatically turn on. The headlights automatically go off a few minutes later if the wipers are stopped, unless the headlights are set in the AUTO position and the light sensors command the headlights to remain on.
