The electronically controlled MAN ComfortSteering system enhances the hydraulic steering system of your MAN truck with additional steering torque from an electric motor. The electronic control unit ensures that the ideal amount of electric steering force is provided in every driving situation.
The sensors of the assistance system evaluate the steering inputs as well as vehicle data such as speed and loading. Depending on the driving situation, the active comfort steering supports your steering manoeuvres by adding or subtracting steering torque. If released, the steering wheel automatically returns to the central position.
When manoeuvring, you benefit from the power-assisted support of additional electronic steering torque. Your MAN truck can be manoeuvred with particularly high precision and little effort.
At higher speed, the active steering system: reduces the steering force automatically by subtracting the electronic steering torque. This makes maintaining directional stability easier for you.
MAN ComfortSteering offers you a significant improvement in comfort when steering. Independent of the axle configuration, we always offer you the system in conjunction with a small steering wheel diameter of 460 mm and a more direct steering transmission ratio. With MAN ComfortSteering your truck also has the required basic equipment to be able to benefit from other MAN assistance systems – for example the MAN Lane Return Assist (LRA) .
