The new Mercedes-Benz Citaro is coming



* Numerous interior and exterior innovations

With more than 30,000 examples delivered to date, the bestselling Mercedes-Benz Citaro will soon have a successor. And with numerous innovative features for both the interior and exterior, the new Mercedes-Benz Citaro is sure to make urban public transport even more attractive in the future.

The design of the Citaro leaves no doubt that this is a fundamental, new development, from the headlamps to the tail lights. Brighter colours and an uncluttered roof design make the interior of the new Citaro appear even more spacious and inviting. The driver takes his seat in a new, slightly higher cockpit. The instruŽment cluster meets the requirements of the Association of German Transport Operators (VDV), but is now more airy, considerably more informative and ergonomically exemplary.

The safety concept of the new Citaro also sets new standards. The Electronic Stability Program ESP is available for this urban regular service bus for the first time, and likewise for the inter-urban buses in their low-floor versions. As a unique feature for urban regular service buses, there is also frontal impact protection, as well as an even more rigid body structure.

The new Citaro has adopted the economical and environmentally friendly engines with BlueTec diesel technology in emission classes Euro-5 and EEV (Enhanced Environmentally Friendly Vehicle) from its predecessor.

The new Mercedes-Benz Citaro will be presented to the general public for the first time in May, followed by a gradual market introduction from the end of 2011.
