sophisticated system of air ducts and strategically arranged air outlets.
Good driving starts with good seating
All seats in the Actros have been redesigned to meet the
special ergonomic requirements of day-to-day operation.
The comfortable, orthopaedically contoured driver’s
suspension seat supports safe, relaxed driving even in
severe terrain. Ergonomically designed controls, extensive
adjustment functions such as seat cushion adjustment for
height and angle, and steering wheel adjustment, allow
drivers to find their ideal driving position. All seats are
upholstered as standard with extremely hard-wearing,
easy-to-clean covers. Backrests with integrated head
restraints and three-point seat belts ensure the utmost
possible safety.

Up to 200% more stowage capacity tells you everything
you need to know. In the Premium sleeper cab with high
roof, the driver will find three spacious open stowage
compartments above the windscreen, hinged lids and
interior lighting. The inside surface of the stowage
compartments is lined with non-slip fleece material. The
open compartment underneath them on the driver’s side
is the perfect place for the extremely easy-to-use radio.

The gearshift lever on the Actros is fitted on the side of
the driver’s seat, on a fold-away console. It is positioned
so that all gear changes can be performed “at the flick of a
wrist”. Not only that, but the lever always remains in the
most ergonomic position whatever the position of the seat.
During breaks and rest periods the console can simply be
folded up out of the way – together with the armrest – to
create more room.

Cab


Real beds, part 1: the luxury bed
After a long, tough day at “the office”, there’s often just one thing that drivers crave: a
nice, comfortable bed. Even the standard lower bed in the Actros sets new standards,
with its single-piece foam mattress with an integrated, point elastic slated mattress
base. The outstanding removable mattress, which is also suitable for fitted sheets, allows
drivers to effectively take their own bed with them if they need to swap over to a different
Actros. The cab is fitted with a curtain which covers the side windows and windscreen.
The result is an exceptionally restful sleep, even during daytime hours.


Real beds, part 2: the comfort bed
At 80 cm in width and 202 cm in length, the dimensions of the luxury bed leave little
to be desired. The same is true of the contour-adaptive, AGR-certified, sprung slatted
frame. In combination with the high-quality foam mattress, it offers optimum sleeping
comfort. Its sliding support elements allow the slatted frame to be adjusted to the weight

Mercedes PowerShift Transmission
Just how confident we are of our further-enhanced
automated gearshift, Mercedes PowerShift, is plain to see
from the fact that it is fitted in the Actros as standard*. It
excels with optimised shift smoothness, fast gear changes
and low fuel consumption. The bottom line of all this is:
more Actros, more economy.

Mercedes PowerShift adapts the rotational speeds of the
main shaft and gear wheel by means of the electronic
engine or gearbox control. This dispenses with the need
for servo-lock synchronisation. A propeller-shaft brake on                                                                     2                     4                      5                   7

Load up easily, drive safely
The standard-fit Telligent® level control allows the frame
to be raised and lowered. In trucks with an air-sprung
rear axle, semitrailers or interchangeable systems can
be attached and detached quickly and easily. The air
suspension offers yet more comfort. It enhances driving
safety, and preserves both the vehicle and delicate loads,
by continually adjusting the damper settings to the road
conditions, load and driving situation.

Safety



Even better all-round safety.
The Actros maintains its usual high levels of safety. This
includes the optimised positioning of the controls and the
large windows. All in all the Actros is equipped to offer a high
level of both safety and security.




Then there is the integrated brake system, which reacts in an
instant to hazardous situations to generate full braking power.
A feature also fitted as standard with the Telligent® braking
system is the hill-holder function, which helps the driver by
preventing the vehicle from rolling forwards or backwards
unintentionally, thereby making light work of hill-starts.

When you’re braking, every centimetre counts
That’s why all Actros models are fitted as standard with
the proven Telligent® braking system with ABS and ASR.
Permanent brake pressure of 10 bar and internally ventilated
disc brakes, or drum brakes, both which don’t lose any of
their effectiveness even after prolonged use, give the Actros
impressive braking power.
Drive more safely: Telligent® Proximity Control
The Telligent® proximity control optionally available on air
suspended vehicles allows more relaxed and safe driving.
The speed and gap maintained by the Actros is automatically
adjusted by the drive braking and cruise control as the
traffic situation changes. Distance to the vehicle in front
is automatically adjusted to the changing traffic situation,
without the intervention of the driver. In addition the
Telligent® Proximity Control operates on the minimum
distances stipulated by law. The combined Cruise Control
system fitted as standard brings together driving and braking
functions.

Lane Assistant: an extra eye on the road
The Lane Recognition system is permanently alert. Its job
is to warn the driver if the vehicle is about to venture out of
its current lane. In the event of this occurring, an acoustic
signal is sent through the radio loudspeaker. This feature
is standard on all air suspended and steel suspended truck
tractors.
