The next generation Mercedes-Benz Intouro raises the bar for coach and coach safety to a whole new level. The new model is the first bus to be equipped with the unique Active Brake Assist 5 – or ABA 5 – emergency braking system.
In the event of a threat of collision with pedestrians or cyclists, the system can automatically apply braking until a complete stop. In addition, the ABA 5, like its predecessor ABA 4, can automatically brake up to a stop when a stationary or moving obstacle is detected.
Another optionally available advanced safety feature for the new Intouro is Sideguard Assist, a cornering assist system with pedestrian detection. It assists the driver primarily when cornering in built-up areas. Sideguard Assist uses radars to warn of moving objects such as pedestrians or cyclists, as well as stationary obstacles.
The new Mercedes-Benz Intouro range covers a huge range of tasks: from a practical bus with a luggage compartment to school and shuttle buses, as well as official transport for transporting employees to the workplace, as well as a comfortable liner for day trips and weekend excursions. Optimized aerodynamics and weight parameters provide even greater fuel efficiency. Depending on the operation of the vehicle, fuel consumption is reduced by 3% as standard, and with the use of additional systems, even greater efficiency is achieved.
