The new dimension in comfort.

A modern workstation and attractive living space, coupled with room for restful sleep – the newly designed driver's cabs in the new Actros live up to this standard in every respect. Particularly the GigaSpace, which provides a most fascinating way to experience this new dimension in long-distance transport. For example thanks to its impressive floor-to-ceiling height of 2.13 m and generous stowage capacity which doesn't prevent the cab from offering ample freedom of movement. The new Actros sets standards in its width as well: the new 2300 mm variants are available with a full-length level floor on request. And with the recessed stowage bins above the windscreen, the 2500 mm cabs offer generous headroom on the co-driver's side.

Improved ergonomics with practical solutions was the requirement for the new workstation – and what sounds so simple and feels so good on the road is the result of a whole series of ergonomic, perfectly coordinated components. These include the new cockpit, the new seats and the new multifunction steering wheel, for instance. Everything is intuitive and precisely attuned to long-distance operations.

A key component of the pleasing ambiance in the new Actros is the clear separation between workstation and living space, alongside the comfortable interior design with its friendly colour concept, crisp design idiom and high-end, beautifully crafted and easy-to-clean materials. The well-considered living concept, and the new SoloStar Concept in particular, ensure maximum relaxation during break times.

Redesigned beds ensure deep sleep. Countless practical details and optional interior concepts enhance the feeling of well-being and give the new dimension in cab comfort a completely personal, individualised character.

Comfort | Working comfort in the interior

Outstanding working conditions.

A sense of well-being at the workstation. This is one of the essential conditions for a relaxed driving experience. And the result of the development of the driver's workstation in the new Actros.

Newly designed workplace.

Wellbeing in the workplace. The newly designed workplace with its cockpit that is ideally suited to the driver’s needs offers optimum working conditions, for everything is arranged ergonomically and within the driver’s area of reach: from the engine start/stop button and the switch in the instrument support to the gearshift. The multifunction steering wheel can be adjusted via a foot-operated switch and moved to a virtually vertical position for climbing in and out. In short: everything ensures that drivers can concentrate on their work in a relaxed manner.

Multifunction key.

Remote control for many settings and functions. The optional multifunction key provides all the functions of an enhanced central locking system and allows the driver to perform such tasks as checking the tyre pressure* and the lighting. It also serves as a remote control for the radio, auxiliary heating and auxiliary air conditioning.

* In conjunction with the tyre pressure monitoring system

Instrument cluster and multifunction steering wheel.

Clear display of all the readings. With its graphics-capable 10.4 cm TFT colour display and many new functions and readouts, the new instrument cluster – which also comes as standard – facilitates fast, comprehensive – not to mention extremely clear – display of all the readings. These include information from the standard-specification FleetBoard EcoSupport*, from three trip computers or shift data for two drivers. The straightforward, intuitive menu navigation, non-reflective legibility and the simplification of the departure check routine are further characteristic elements of the new instrument cluster. As an option an instrument cluster with a 12.7 cm TFT colour display and a variant with a video function are available. The latter can also display the images from an additionally connectable reversing camera.

They all have in common the fact that their fundamental functions can be controlled via the new multifunction steering wheel: telephone calls can be taken, for example, driver assistance systems activated and deactivated, and radio settings changed. This makes for considerably more safety and operating comfort, ensuring that work and comfort go hand in hand in the new Actros.

The new standard-specification multifunction steering wheel is also optionally available in leather or a wood/leather combination.

Heating and air conditioning system.

High-comfort climate. The new heating system boasts several innovations and creates an optimum working climate: the standard-specification hot-water auxiliary heating, for instance, can be used to heat the cab. The innovative residual engine heat utilisation system is available as an option and ensures that cosy warmth is available for up to two hours after the engine has been switched off. Hot-water auxiliary heating is also available on request – it can heat the cab and the engine simultaneously or separately as required.

All the cabs are equipped with an air-controlled heating and air conditioning system which is characterised by its immediate response and facilitates draught-free ventilation thanks to the diffuser vent located in the instrument support.

Radio and navigation system.

Good entertainment while on the move, too. Thanks to the standard-specification radio with a USB connection there is always good entertainment on board. Two CD radios with and without Bluetooth connectivity are available as an option, as are the radio/navigation system with Bluetooth and an excellent sound system with eight loudspeakers including a subwoofer* which meets the most discerning requirements. All the radios have a USB and Aux-in interface for connecting other end devices.

* In conjunction with the level floor

Stowage compartments.

A tidy stowage concept.

The new Actros has what it takes to make an optimal workstation, with its practical stowage facilities which are ideally situated within easy reach of the driver's seat and perfectly suited for the objects to be stowed. They ensure more order and hence greater comfort.

Even more stowage space.

For the driver's cabs with engine tunnel, optional stowage features on the engine tunnel include an open stowage tray with cup holders, a tall, enclosed stowage compartment and a 25-litre refrigerator.

Comfort | Seats

Redesigned seats.

All seats in the new Actros have been completely redesigned. The result: the adjustment range for the height as well as for the fore and aft position is greater, the controls are intuitively arranged and easily visible and the seat cushions, having gained a full 40 mm in width, set a new standard in long-distance transport.

The new Actros can be equipped with the standard suspension seat, a luxury suspension seat or a climatised suspension seat variant. A leather seat finished to a high standard of craftsmanship is available on request.

Luxury suspension seat.

In our two largest driver's cabs, the GigaSpace and the BigSpace cabs, the standard equipment includes the luxury suspension seat with a velour seat cover. Compared with the previous model, this seat also has an integrated belt-height adjustment feature, a shoulder adjustment feature and a greater adjustment range for the seat cushion angle. It is also available with a high-grade leather cover and a back-massage function on request.

The illustrations and descriptions provided here may include accessories and optional extras. Ask your Mercedes-Benz Trucks salesperson.

Climatised suspension seat.

The new climatised suspension seat provides excellent seating comfort by selectively dissipating heat from the seat and removing moisture. And the seat covers likewise have excellent climatic properties. The climatised suspension seat can also be fitted with an optional back-massage function.

Massage function.

The comfort seat and the climatised suspension seat are available with a back-massage function to prevent muscle tension. Seven air cushions inflate and deflate in succession, creating a rising wave which massages the driver's back.

Seat covers.

All seats in the new Actros are ready for delivery with a number of different seat covers. The standard suspension seat is available with the standard flat-weave covers and optional velour or synthetic leather covers. The luxury suspension seat comes in velour or with optional high-grade leather covers. The climatised suspension seat is equipped with Dinamica star covers. They are distinguished by excellent climatic properties and are available in anthracite or anthracite/beige. A leather seat finished to a high standard of craftsmanship is also available on request.

Outstanding working conditions. Even outside.

A sense of well-being at the workstation. This is one of the essential conditions for a relaxed driving experience. And the result of the development of the driver's workstation in the new Actros.

Step.

Cab access is easy and safe.

The large door opening angle and long grab handles on both sides make it easy to access the cab. The new standard-specification step lighting* makes entering the vehicle easier and safer.

Safe and convenient.

Even more convenience comes courtesy of the new standard-specification step behind the cab. It makes mounting brake and electrical connections on semitrailer tractors simple and safe.

Tilt cab.

Simply practical. Depending on the cab variant the driver can tilt the cab either automatically or manually.

Cleaning the windscreen.

Practical foothold. The windscreen can be reached easily via two fold-out steps, whilst two ergonomic handles give the driver additional support. This facilitates cleaning of the windscreen and brings added convenience.

Comfort | Living and sleeping comfort

Living and sleeping comfort.

A better life on the road, too – as of now.

The new interior design with the well-thought-out living concept ensures maximum relaxation during breaks.

Restful sleep.

The completely redeveloped beds for the new Actros are totally geared towards comfort when lying down and sleeping. They offer lots of room and ensure restful sleep.

SoloStar Concept.

More comfort when lying down, sitting and standing. The newly developed SoloStar Concept sets new benchmarks in long-distance transport: the central element of the generous living area is the extremely comfortable chair-like seat on the cab’s rear panel. It invites drivers to stretch out their legs when taking a rest and offers a homely place to sit and eat.

Thanks to the folding table on the underside of the bed with an integral cutlery compartment and an optional refrigerator, drivers will be less dependent on service stations. A few simple steps are all it takes to convert the area from a living room to a bedroom. The standard-fit comfort bed on the bottom can be folded against the rear panel of the cab. The comfort mattress – which also comes as standard – is made of cold foam with 7 zones, so drivers can look forward to an excellent night’s sleep. The multi-zone PremiumComfort cold-foam mattress is available as an option.

In the SoloStar Concept there are also three upper beds with widths of 750 mm and 600 mm and various comfort appointments available as an option. For example, an optional 600 mm-wide upper bed can be folded up by 90° in the GigaSpace for optimum freedom of movement. With many individual equipment items that are available on request the SoloStar Concept not only offers optimum working and living comfort – it also provides unrestricted opportunities for using the Actros for applications involving two drivers. It is available for the GigaSpace, BigSpace and StreamSpace cabs with a width of 2500 mm.

Interior designs.

A dazzling appearance. The cab can be given a fine, individual look with the three interior designs which can be ordered for the new Actros: Standard, Style-Line and Home-Line.

The optionally available Style-Line interior design featuring chrome-look trim parts lends the cab an up-to-the-minute ambience. From the door handles and the edging around the air vents to the steering-column switch, the trim strips in the instrument support, the instrument cluster’s white backlit graduated rings and the multifunction steering wheel – everything blends into a harmonious whole. Eye-catching flair on the exterior comes courtesy of the chrome clasp on the sunblind, the chromed exterior-mirror cover and the illuminated Mercedes star.

With the Home-Line interior design the new Actros offers another opportunity to add a personal touch to the cab. In addition to the leather steering wheel with wood appliqué sections, the specification includes the wood trim strips in the instrument support and door pulls in wood. Combined with the interior colour almond beige the Home-Line creates a warm and extremely homely atmosphere.

Lighting systems.

Let there be light. The subtle, blue interior lighting available on request has a total of 14 illuminated points on the cab’s roof lining, on the instrument panel and in the footwell to ensure a particularly cosy effect, not to mention better orientation during overnight stays or when driving through the night.

The new Actros’s cabs are also available with work lighting and a night-light system. With their pleasant light they ensure relaxed, eye-friendly working.

Stowage compartments.

Everything in its place. Quality and quantity – anyone who spends a lot of time out and about on the road needs their own free space – and space for the essentials that are on board during long journeys. This is why the new cabs for the Actros offer more interior capacity, more stowage space and more freedom of movement than their predecessors.

The GigaSpace cab, for example, sets benchmarks: with 920 l more capacity and 50 l more stowage capacity. With its asymmetrical configuration the stowage compartment concept above the windscreen not only offers 332 l of stowage capacity; it also provides previously unattained freedom of movement on the co-driver’s side. As an option a reinforced, break-in-resistant valuables compartment can also be integrated on the co-driver’s side. But the ClassicSpace, StreamSpace and our BigSpace cab also stand for a new dimension of stowage space, for applications in national and international long-distance transport, for one or two drivers – and to meet the most discerning standards.

Table for co-driver.

Table for one. The optionally available folding table for the co-driver’s side is integrated into the instrument support. It can be folded out and in again in next to no time – very handy for working or eating at, for instance.

In the cabs with a width of 2300 mm the comfort bed on the bottom has a width of 750 mm and a length of 2000 mm. In the cabs with a width of 2500 mm the bed’s width is 750 mm and the length 2200 mm. For applications requiring two drivers, an equivalent comfort bed with levelling control is available on request for the top. Simply practical: an upper comfort bed with a width of 600 mm available as an option can remain folded out during the journey.

For a really good night’s sleep the new beds are fitted as standard with the 110 mm-thick comfort mattress made of cold foam and with seven zones.

And for even more comfort when lying down and sleeping the PremiumComfort mattress is available as an option. To create an excellent climate for sleeping it is equipped with a vertical tube system of cold foam – this includes various hardness grades all over for optimum comfort when lying down. All the mattress covers are suitable for people who suffer from allergies. Further comfort features of the new-generation beds include the good rear ventilation through a mesh fabric and the enduring quality.
