The redeveloped Actros completely redefines terms such as freedom of movement, sense of spaciousness and atmosphere, without losing sight of the driver’s everyday operation.
A modern workplace, an attractive living area and at the same time room for restful sleep – the redesigned cabs for the new Actros meet this standard in every respect. This is especially true of the GigaSpace. It offers an exciting way of experiencing the new dimension in long-distance transport, with its impressive headroom* of 2.13 m, for instance, and the optimum ratio of stowage capacity and freedom of movement. The new Actros sets benchmarks where its width is concerned, too, because the 2300 mm wide variants are available with a level floor throughout as an option. The storage compartments in cabs with 2500 mm width are set back on the co-driver’s side to create impressive headroom above the windscreen.
Better ergonomics with practical solutions was the remit when it came to creating the new workplace – and what sounds so simple and feels so good when out on the road is actually the result of a whole series of finely matched components – in ergonomic and functional terms. These include the new cockpit projected towards the driver, the newly developed seats, the new multifunction steering wheel, and the stowage compartments which are easy to reach from the driver’s seat. In short: everything can be operated intuitively and is precisely tuned to workflows in long-distance transport.
Key factors ensuring a pleasant atmosphere in the Actros include the welcoming interior design and attractive colour scheme, distinctive styling, and the high-quality easy-to-clean materials. There is a clear distinction between the workplace and living area. The carefully designed living concept and, in particular, the new SoloStar Concept offers maximum relaxation during breaks. The new beds guarantee restful sleep. Numerous practical details and optional interior concepts increase the driver’s sense of well-being and add a personal touch to the cab.
