Comfort guaranteed

Gearbox technology of the MAN bus chassis

Intelligent gearboxes

MAN has two gearboxes for you to choose from. They increase driving comfort and save fuel at the same tome – perfect for inner-city traffic and travelling across the country.

The automatic gearbox – for 250 hp up to 460 hp – impresses with improved gear-change quality and a new low-friction oil with optimised viscosity. This ensures gentle, quiet gearshifts. Fuel consumption is also reduced considerably thanks to improved retarder output.

The new MAN TipMatic – for 420 hp up to 500 hp – ensures a lower level of inside noise and reduced fuel consumption with an axle ratio of i=2.73. Fast, comfortable gearshifts are possible thanks to Smartshift.

MAN Bus chassis axles - for a comfortable journey

First-class driving comfort

The modern MAN axles provide the highest level of driving comfort which can be immediately felt by both driver and passengers. Whether rigid axle or single-wheel steering: both axle types impress during the first few metres and will please the driver when manoeuvring with small turning circles.

Thanks to the excellent suspension, back pain is a thing of the past, even during long journeys, and low maintenance effort ensures greater convenience.

Fold-out intercooler

Cool ideas

The fold-out intercooler stands out with its high level of reliability and cleverly conceived design; it not only allows good accessibility to all the important areas at all times, but is also easy to maintain and user-friendly. The engine is always reliably cooled by the easy-to-clean intercooler. This significantly increases the service life of the engine, meaning both the engine and the technician can stay cool.

Driver’s workplace

Ergonomic design

MAN chassis always provide their drivers with a practical, ergonomic and appealing place to work. All key information is displayed at a glance on the instrument panel, and the optimised switch layout improves user ergonomics. A continuously adjustable multi-function steering wheel also ensures a relaxed working environment.
