Do I need beam converters for driving in France?

I have a 2019 Suzuki Vitara SZ-T 1.4 boosterjet, do I need to get beam converters for my lights to drive in France? When buying the car the sales and service manager said it had flat beams so I would not need to get converters, is that correct?

This is questionable. Most newer cars can have the beam adjusted (or at least lowered) from inside the cabin rather than use converters, but unless the car has LED headlights then technically you should use beam adapters to avoid glare toward incoming drivers.
