Comfort reinvented

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 assist with counteracting fatigue, we have redefined comfort once again.

Comfort is more than just luxury. It is our answer to the need for higher standards in long-distance haulage and heavy-duty distribution haulage, providing for pleasant working and driving conditions. On the move and on breaks alike, the interior of the new Actros is a continual source of fresh motivation for the tough job in long-distance haulage and heavy-duty distribution haulage.

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 storage space. With the SoloStar Concept and 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.
