Other safety features for the new Travego include cornering lights, a
rain/light sensor, long-lasting LED clearance lamps above the windscreen, and a trailing axle with independent wheel suspension for three-axle models. Travego drivers can look forward to a new-look, user-friendly cockpit. The six-cylinder in-line Mercedes-Benz OM 457 LA engine is optionally available with an output of 335 kW (456 hp). The new Mercedes GO 240-8 PowerShift automatic eight-speed transmission
is also available as an option for the Travego. Mercedes-Benz high-deck touring coaches are now more attractive than ever before.
