I see your car has double projectors? I have a 2014 f sport and it came with only one projector. In all it has the blinker, low beam and high beam.

These are the LED headlights that were an Option at the Dealer.

I find it odd that the Prius/Corolla has brighter lights than the luxury branded CT.

2016 was the first model year that the CT200h halogen headlights were evaluated and rated by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). They got the lowest of five ratings - Poor - but so did the headlights of some models from Mercedes, BMW, Tesla, etc.

The 2017-up Corolla headlights got the second highest IIHS rating of "Acceptable". There doesn't seem to be much correlation between light source and headlight performance. Plenty of HID and LED headlight systems get IIHS ratings of Marginal or Poor.

Here is a link to the IIHS ratings for the 2016 CT200h with halogen headlights: https://www.iihs.org/iihs/ratings/ve...hatchback/2016

The IIHS didn't rate the CT200h LED headlights - maybe due to them being so rare.
