English   The new Mercedes-Benz Citaro regular-service bus
19.06.2011 von admin

Harmonious and practical styling of the front section

At the same time, the enlarged overhang presents an excellent opportunity to move away from the angular basic shape of conventional urban regular-service buses. Apart from adding to the bus’s overall length, the extension of the front section also provides the basis for the harmonious and rounded design of the new Citaro’s front. With a view to preserving the still unsurpassed manoeuvrability of the Citaro, however, the distance from the A-zero pillars and the corner bumpers to the front axle remains unchanged despite the front end’s extra length. This means that in practice, the front end does not swing out any further in bends and when manoeuvring.

The bumper is split into three sections for greater ease of repair. There are now new shoe-shaped scuffing protectors on the left and right in front of the hem sections to prevent the overhang of the Citaro from being damaged should it come into contact with the ground, e.g. when performing tight manoeuvres close to the kerb. The scuffing protectors can be simply replaced.

The Citaro Ü features an elegant windscreen similar to a touring coach

Mercedes-Benz continues to employ a design that differentiates the urban and rural regular-service versions of the new Citaro from the front. Whereas the destination display on the urban regular-service bus still juts forward between the two A-zero pillars from above the windscreen to make it easier to read, the Citaro Ü for rural regular-service routes is fitted with a high windscreen which covers the destination display too. The extended front end means that the glass has a more pronounced three-dimensional convex form, whose elegant curvature is highly reminiscent of the windscreens on luxury touring coaches.

New lighting technology with daytime running lamps and low beam, plus bi-xenon

The new H7 headlamps generate an impressively high light output from their large reflectors. The new optional LED daytime running lamps are integrated into the headlamp assemblies along with the LED indicators. Not only do these increase safety, they help to make the new Citaro unmistakable out on the road too. The list of options also includes bi-xenon headlamps, which are just as distinctive, as well as front fog lamps with an integrated cornering light function.
