Adaptive Front Headlights

I have seen these mentioned on here and even on the Costco build configuration tool but I have not found any Toyota official words on it. So what is the deal on these?

On the Limited HV, you have the option to get the Adaptive Front Headlight System (AFS). As far as I have found out, you can not get AFS with the panoramic moon roof.

AFS allows the headlights to tilt and pan. The tilt can compensate for such as things as weight in the vehicle. Pan is used to turn the headlights into the corner as you turn. I haven't seen how far the RAV4's will pan, but the usual in other brand seems to be about 15%.

They are described in the hybrid owner's manual but it is pretty generic.

An important question is whether the adaptive headlights will be available right away. I plan on getting a hybrid Limited but wonder whether asking a dealer to try to get one will delay the process, we'll see.

Auto leveling is more of a courtesy to other drivers... but also helps you since you won't get all the flashing high beams in anger...

I'm going to get them for the pan controls. It also fits well with the build I want. One of the packages will just be Adaptive Headlights and JBL, which is exactly what I want.

Here's a Toyota and Lexus video on AHS, first one is several years old and high beam only apparently, I expect the Lexus system will be what the '19 Ltd HV will have or be similar..

From what I've seen on my order, JBL and AFS are not in a package. You can order either or both. And there is no prerequisite packages.

On my dealer's website build option for the Limited HV, adding AFHS($415) also adds JBL ($580) automatically, JBL can be added by itself, adding pano roof ($200) adds technology package($1025) and JBL. It appears they've finished with the website update, there are prices for all options now.

Is the owners manual available on this site or can you point me to it? Thanks!
