The new Actros. Ready to set a new standard.

To this end, we have equipped it with pioneering technical innovations which markedly reduce fuel consumption, further boost vehicle use and safety and offer the driver even better support in carrying out their work. Unique, future-oriented connectivity and the harmonious interaction of intelligent assistance systems are additional defining attributes of the new Actros, on the basis of which we are able to offer you an excellently configured, highly efficient vehicle for practically any type of operation in long-distance haulage and heavy-duty distribution haulage. The new Actros.

Comfort reinvented.

Work better, drive better, live better – the new Actros shows how it’s done.

Comfort. The new Actros lends concepts such as freedom of movement and atmosphere a whole new meaning without losing sight of drivers’ everyday work. To promote drivers’ productivity and counteract fatigue, we have redefined comfort once again. From the new workplace designed for intuitive use with Multimedia Cockpit and MirrorCam through cutting-edge connectivity and networking to the broad range of driving and assistance systems, such as Active Drive Assist, which is optionally available for certain Actros models – everything serves to offer the driver an outstanding environment for work and relaxation that makes breaks equally as comfortable as the time spent at the wheel. We call this a new dimension of comfort.

Ergonomics and driving comfort.

Your workplace in the Actros. Modern, ergonomic, practical,motivating and not least of all efficiency-boosting. Whether you are a driver or fleet operator, we’re convinced you’ll be delighted by the workplace in the new Actros. It offers the driver the best possible working and driving conditions. And through intelligent networking with headquarters and logistics processes it contributes to even better performance. This promise is borne out by the new Multimedia Cockpit and the new multifunction steering wheel with Touch Control Buttons, for example. Plus the new MirrorCam1), which replaces conventional rear-view mirrors to make lane changing, turning off and manoeuvring safer. Plus the new, electronic parking brake, which is activated automatically when the engine is
switched off. Driving and assistance systems, the familiar high standard of ergonomics and intuitive operation are further attributes that help to ensure that working with the new Actros is above all easier. Enhanced driving comfort. Relaxed. And efficient. The enhanced driving comfort in the new Actros is the result of
optimum ergonomics and innovative technology. This covers proven components such as the excellent suspension, the highly responsive steering and the Mercedes PowerShift 3 gearshift system, as well as systems such as enhanced Predictive Powertrain Control, the new Traffic Sign Assist feature and new Active Drive Assist, which is optionally
available for certain Actros models to conjure up a uniquely safe and assured feeling at the wheel.

Efficiently relieving the driver’s workload. Particularly in long-distance haulage, delegating tasks relieves the strain and reduces stress. New Active Drive Assist is available for certain Actros models as an efficient means of relieving the driver’s workload. Active Drive Assist combines the functions of various driving and assistance systems to boost driving safety. This results in added safety due to a reduced risk of accidents, combined with an economical, fuel-saving driving style. In a nutshell: reduced stress and strain all round.

Stowage facilities.

Anyone who spends a lot of time on the road needs space of their own. And space for the essentials that are on board during long journeys. This is why the cabs of the Actros offer particularly spacious interiors – with vast amounts of stowage space.

Living and sleeping comfort.

With the SoloStar Concept and the extremely comfortable beds, the new Actros has all the qualities that really count when it comes to living and sleeping comfort in the long-distance transport sector.

Exterior.

With its cabs, the new Actros offers an ideal option for virtually every type of requirement in long-distance haulage and heavy-duty distribution haulage. A perfect combination of design and functionality which is also underscored in unique fashion by its striking exterior.

Active Brake Assist 5

The fifth generation of the system assists the driver in that, under ideal conditions and within the system’s capabilities, it can perform emergency braking when approaching stationary and moving objects, and perform partial or full braking for moving pedestrians, thus mitigating or even preventing accidents entirely.

MirrorCam*

Instead of using conventional mirrors, the new Actros comes equipped with the innovative, aerodynamically designed MirrorCam. Besides cutting fuel consumption by up to 1.3%, it provides an ideal view rearward and around the area of the A pillar. In addition, the MirrorCam improves safety, for example by automatically panning the camera image when manoeuvring, turning corners or changing lanes.

* Not available on all ADR vehicles

Multimedia Cockpit*

For a high level of driving, working and operating convenience, the new Actros is equipped with the innovative Multimedia Cockpit, a high-resolution (10") colour display that replaces the conventional instrument cluster and provides a clear display of all driving and vehicle information. It is supplemented by the Multi-Touch-Display in the same size on the dashboard.

* Not available on all models

Enhanced Predictive Powertrain Control

The system integrates a driving style optimised for the route topography into the operation of the automatic transmission and, in conjunction with the precisely coordinated shift strategy, allows fuel savings of up to 5% to be achieved. The new extended functions of Predictive Powertrain Control now enable use of the system's benefits on A and B roads, too. In addition to the satellite-based positioning system and precise 3D maps, Predictive Powertrain Control also uses the Traffic Sign Assist feature.

Enhanced Uptime

With Mercedes- Benz Uptime we are pursuing a clear objective: to permanently minimise unscheduled vehicle downtime and to make repairs predictable resulting in increased vehicle availability.
