A world first in coach manufacturing: AquaBlade

The new AquaBlade flat-blade windscreen wiper system at the front of the vehicle, which distributes the washer fluid along the edge of the wiper blade, also helps to improve the aerodynamic drag. The water-distribution channel is incorporated into the wiper blade itself, ensuring an even distribution of the washer fluid. At 1000 millimetres in length, the wiper blades on the AquaBlade system represent a world first in coach manufacturing.

A wider entrance area

In the ComfortClass 500, space has not been saved at the expense of passenger comfort. Instead, it has been achieved using a fully integrated approach. This is clearly evident at the front entrance area with three steps, which is now noticeably wider thanks to a front-end extension.

On the right-hand side next to the tour guide's seat, the ComfortClass 500 features an additional stowage compartment for brochures and other information material. On the other side of the entrance, a grab rail runs up the steps and sweeps harmoniously into the cockpit section. Inside the bicolour cockpit, the entrance area is in 'greige'. This colour combination is made up of grey and beige shades and creates a sense of warmth throughout the entire passenger compartment in the new generation of vehicles.

The front steps are a convenient 184 mm high up to the driver's area, and 220 mm high from there up to the walkway. In conjunction with the higher base frame, this step design means that the walkway no longer slopes in the front section of the vehicle. The steps at the rear entrance are 250 mm high.
