Choosing the right color foglights for your Chevy Cruze
Once you have decided what style you want, the next choice is color. There are usually 3 choices available for Cruze Fog Lights for both the OEM and Halo Projector styles: Clear, Smoke, and Yellow.
Clear Chevy Cruze Fog Lights: The standard choice
Clear is the color of lens that the dealer fog lights came in and for good reason. Clear Cruze Fog Lights put out the most light of all the colors since colored fog lights have to add some material to the lens, blocking overall light. Also, Clear Foglights, both halo and OEM style kits, look great no matter what color your Cruze is. Also, if you are planning to add colored bulbs of HID kits to your Cruze fog lights, clear is the way to go if you want to maximize the effect of the new color.
The only downside to clear Cruze Foglights is that their “clearness” can be a liability if your foglights start getting old and worn looking after a few years.
Smoke Chevy Cruze Fog Lights: A different take on a classic option
Unless you are going for that Japanese JDM look, Smoke Foglights are probably the nicest option available for your Cruze. At the expense of a marginal loss of brightness, you get a slick looking light that looks perfect on white and most dark colored Cruze. They are a perfect complement to tinted windows, especially on black Cruze going for the full tinted Knight Rider-ish look.
Being the darkest foglight, they hide wear and tear the best, but that also makes them a less than desirable option if you are planning to add colored bulbs or HID kits to your Cruze.
Yellow Chevy Cruze Fog Lights: Aggressive and functional
Yellow is the preferred color for drivers going after the Japanese “JDM” look. They look exceptionally nice on high contrast color Cruze like black, white, or blue. Yellow Cruze fog light kits might not be the best look for Cruze with yellowish colors though (yellow, orange, some reds, etc.).
Another thing to consider with yellow Cruze fog lights (both OEM style and Halo Projector versions) is that they actually do the best job in foggy or inclement weather. Due to the wavelength of the light spectrum of yellow light, they produce the least glare against fog, rain, puddles, etc. making them the SAFEST color of foglight to get…assuming you are really buying fog lights because you are planning on driving your Cruze in the fog.
