Active Brake Assist ( ABA )
ABA can save lives: if the Active Brake Assist (also known as the emergency braking aid) recognises the acute danger of a rear-end collision with a slow vehicle in front, after emitting an escalating warning signal it makes a full brake application.
The Active Brake Assist is based on the DISTRONIC. It uses the DISTRONIC's radar sensor, which has three radar joints to recognise any obstacles which come within a defined area in front of the bus. The distance and relative speed to the preceding vehicle are continuously measured and analysed.
Front Collision Guard (FCG)
Front Collision Guard FCG is a unique passive safety system for protecting the driver and tour guide in the event of a front collision. Front Collision Guard is made up of a complex safety system. It begins with a transverse profile which creates an underride guard to protect other road users in the event of an accident and can for example intercept a passenger car. The frame under this profile is composed of crash elements which absorb energy in a targeted manner if impact occurs.
Lane Assistant (SPA)
With the help of a camera system behind the windscreen the Lane Assistant (SPA) recognises when the vehicle is in danger of inadvertently straying from the traffic lane. The SPA continually monitors the distance of the bus to the lane marker lines on the road surface. If the vehicle starts drifting towards the marker lines, the driver is warned via pulsating on the corresponding side of the seat. The SPA is activated from a speed of 70 km/h and switches off when the indicator is operated, for example when the driver initiates an intentional lane change.
The new generation of coach seats.
The Travego also impresses through its attractive coach seating. The modern design of the seats is visually more appealing and noticeably more comfortable. The side panel and support arm are made of high-grade aluminium. The new elegant armrest is large and ergonomically shaped. The mechanism for adjusting the seats and folding back the newly sculpted backrest is intuitive to operate and could not be simpler. In the zero position, a more upright backrest angle makes it easier for passengers to stand up.
Whether it's music or films: the Travego offers a whole range of high-quality options to entertain your passengers. The impressive sound system is a treat for the ears. Radio and CD along with a DVD player come as part of the standard specification. And if you want to make things even easier, simply replace the DVD player with a DVD changer. The two 19-inch flat screens round off the audio/video equipment, providing a first-class feast for the eyes wherever you're sitting.
Components & Parts
Each part of the Travego is thoroughly tested before it goes into production. And after each production stage, strict checks ensure a perfect finish. Ultimately, the Mercedes-Benz quality philosophy also sets out to continually test and optimise manufacturing processes. And incidentally, deadline compliance for delivery is equally part of our quality aspirations. So that you can count on being able to include your Travego in your upcoming schedule.
The Travego sets standards. It boasts outstanding environmental credentials both in terms of production and operations: the cathodic dip priming process is largely solvent-free. Economical, low-emission engines along with the long maintenance intervals bring environmental benefits, too. And if at some time the Travego has come to the end of the road after a long, successful life, many of its components can be recycled. Quality thought through to the end: hallmark Mercedes-Benz.
The new class in your fleet.
As the flagship Mercedes-Benz, the Travego earns your company wide recognition wherever you go. It not only impresses with its cutting-edge technology, stylish design and refined comfort, but also thanks to the Mercedes star.
