The new Actros.
Welcome to a
new dimension.
Anyone wanting to stay ahead needs vehicles which meet this standard
in every respect. In order to be able to offer you a vehicle that is optimal for
long-distance transport both today and in the future, and in view of the
­constantly increasing demands where comfort, economy, driving dynamics
and variety are concerned, we decided to completely redevelop and rebuild
the Actros.
The result is a truck that puts everything that has gone before it in the
shade. With its new cabs it offers you maximum comfort. You will be more
profitable than ever before when out on the road in it, thanks to many
­fuel-saving technical innovations and expertly coordinated services. It is
easier and safer to drive and more outstandingly capable than any other
truck that’s gone before. It offers a perfectly configured vehicle for just
about every application in long-distance transport, thanks to the vast range
of equipment, appointments and model variants. Climb in and experience
the new dimension in long-distance transport.

Perfectly tailored to the demands of the future –
and, therefore, to yours too.
From the front apron and the radiator grille right up to the
roof: the striking exterior design with its specific longdistance transport style also lends the newly developed
Actros a new dimension in visual terms, whilst documenting its inner strengths to impressive effect. Take, for
example, the light and friendly ambience and the clear
distinction between the workplace and the living area.
With its cabs geared to various operating profiles the
new Actros opens up hitherto unattained dimensions of
working, living and sleeping in long-distance transport.
All 2500 mm wide cabs come with a level floor as standard.
The headroom between the seats is as much as 2.13 m.
What’s more, there is considerably more room and stowage
space than in the predecessor model. Depending on their
intended end use, the 2300 mm wide cabs can optionally
be fitted with a level floor throughout or with an engine
tunnel in two different heights.
In order to make the new Actros a highly economical
truck it has been equipped with many innovative and
consumption-reducing features, and with particularly
frugal engines: the Euro V model has up to 7% lower
consumption than its predecessor. In addition to Euro V
and EEV, the new Actros is one of the first vehicles on the
market with engines which meet the requirements of
Euro VI as standard – giving a consumption advantage
of up to 5% over the Euro V model. And now a brand
new feature is available: Predictive Powertrain Control,
an innovative system which takes into account the road
ahead when changing gear, allowing for any inclines,
and in so doing can reduce consumption by as much as
a further 5%.
Alongside the innovative technology on board the new
Actros, services tailored to your needs also help to
keep overall costs particularly low: they range from the
telematics-based FleetBoard system and Service Contracts,
through attractive leasing, finance and insurance
­products, to driver training courses for a driving style
that cuts consumption – all measures which result in
fewer costs and increased profit.
For an incomparably good driving feel we have given the
new Actros a new innovative rear axle guide on 4 x 2
­vehicles, a steering system with a precise response and
a wider, tauter frame. The engines are characterised
by their immediate response and are available in four
displacement capacities and a total of 16 output categories
from 175 kW (238 hp) to 460 kW (625 hp). In conjunction
with the standard-specification Mercedes PowerShift 3
automated transmission and additional driving programs
they ensure economical driving enjoyment. Plus the new
Actros puts many other benefits firmly on the road, such
as freely selectable frame overhangs for better bodymounting ability and an extended range of wheelbases.
A tank volume of up to 1420 l in the case of 4 x 2 tractor
units and flexible combination options where the individual
tanks are concerned, increase suitability for various
­operating profiles further still.
In short, with the new Actros you have at your disposal a
vehicle which is perfectly tailored to your requirements
for practically any application in long-distance transport.
Discover all this on the following pages, or pay a visit
to your local Mercedes-Benz Dealer.

The new dimension of comfort.
True greatness right down to the smallest detail – the newly developed Actros completely redefines terms
such as freedom of movement, sense of spaciousness and atmosphere, without losing sight of the driver’s
day-to-day circumstances. In short: working, living and sleeping comfort in a totally new dimension.
A modern workplace, an attractive living area and at the
same time room for restful sleep – the redesigned cabs
for the new Actros meet this standard in every respect.
This is especially true of the GigaSpace. It offers an
­exciting way of experiencing the new dimension in longdistance transport, with its impressive headroom 1) of
2.13 m, for instance, and the excellent ratio of stowage
capacity and freedom of movement. The new Actros sets
benchmarks where its width is concerned, too, because
the variants with a width of 2300 mm are available with
a level floor throughout as an option. And all variants
offer generous headroom.
Better ergonomics with practical solutions was the remit
when it came to creating the new workplace – and what
sounds so simple and feels so good when out on the road
is actually the result of a whole series of finely matched
components – in both ergonomic and functional terms.
These include the new cockpit, the new seats and the
new multifunction steering wheel. Everything can be
­operated intuitively and is precisely tuned to workflows in
long-distance transport. Crucial factors for the pleasant
atmosphere in the new Actros are the homely interior
design with its friendly colour concept, the clear design
idiom and the high-quality, perfectly processed and
easy-to-clean materials, plus the clear separation of
workplace and living area. The well-thought-out living
concept ensures maximum relaxation during breaks.
Restful sleep comes courtesy of newly developed beds,
whilst numerous practical details and optional interior
designs increase wellbeing and add a very personal,
­individual touch to the new dimension when it comes
to cab comfort.

radio, auxiliary heating and auxiliary air conditioning.
Comfort

Comfort and work – a matter of course, as far as
we’re concerned – not a contradiction in terms.
Wellbeing in the workplace. This is one of the fundamental prerequisites for relaxed driving. And the result of the process
in which the driver’s workplace in the new Actros was developed.
Climb in, take a seat and drive off. The workplace in the
new Actros impresses with its perfect ergonomics, the
good accessibility of all the controls and many details
which ensure that work is simply easier.
As of now, pleasure at work begins as soon as the engine
is started, because the new Actros has a start/stop button.
This increases convenience, while at the same time the
immobiliser fitted as standard increases protection against
theft. An optional multifunction key can also be used as
a remote control for lots of other settings and functions –
at a distance of up to 100 m from the new Actros.
Further details in the completely redesigned workplace
are the cockpit oriented towards the driver, the new
­instrument cluster and the standard-specification
­multifunction steering wheel, which has a much larger
adjustment range than that in the predecessor. All the
switches and stowage compartments are clearly arranged
and within easy reach for the driver. As a special detail,
the standard-fit automated transmission is conveniently
operated via the right-hand steering-column lever. With
its graphics-capable 10.4 cm TFT colour display and
many new functions and readouts, the new instrument
The newly designed workplace with its cockpit that is ideally suited to the driver’s needs offers excellent working conditions, for everything is arranged
­ergonomically and within easy reach for the driver: from the engine start/stop button and the switch in the instrument support, to the gearshift which
can now be operated via the steering-column lever. The multifunction steering wheel can be adjusted via a foot-operated switch and moved to an almost
vertical position for climbing in and out. In short: everything ensures that drivers can concentrate on their work in a relaxed manner.

cluster – which also comes as standard – facilitates
fast, comprehensive – not to mention extremely clear –
display of all the readings. These include information
from FleetBoard EcoSupport1), from three trip computers
or shift data for two drivers. The straightforward, intuitive
menu navigation, non-reflective legibility and the
­simplification of the departure check routine are further
characteristic elements of the new instrument cluster.
As an option an instrument cluster with a 12.7 cm TFT
colour display and a variant with a video function are
available. The latter can also display the images from
an additionally connectable reversing camera. They
all have in common the fact that their fundamental
f­ unctions can be controlled via the new multifunction
steering wheel: telephone calls can be taken, for example,
driver assistance systems activated and deactivated,
and radio settings changed. This makes for considerably
greater safety and operating comfort, ensuring that work
and comfort go hand in hand in the new Actros.
Intuitive operation, easier to climb in and out – with its enlarged adjustment
The new instrument cluster with a graphics-capable 10.4 cm TFT colour

All the seats in the Actros have been completely
­redeveloped. As a result, the adjustment range both
lengthwise and for height is larger, the controls are
­arranged intuitively and in such a way that they are
­easily legible, whilst the seat cushions define a new
benchmark in long-distance transport, being 40 mm wider
than those in the predecessor model. The ­suspension
seat impresses with its good seating comfort and many
setting options. All of our long - distance cabs feature
the ex-factory comfort suspension seat with a velour
seat cover as standard. It also boasts integral beltheight a­ djustment, shoulder adjustment and a greater
adjustment range for the seat cushion inclination –
all of which were not present in the previous model.
As an option it is available with covers made of flatweave cloth, man-made leather, high-quality leather
or Dinamica star – a man-made alternative to suede.
Maximum seating comfort comes courtesy of the new
climatised suspension seat, which diverts heat and
moisture from the seat in a targeted manner, and whose
covers are characterised by very good climatic properties.
On request the comfort and climatised suspension seat
are available with a back-massage function and a leather
seat featuring sophisticated workmanship.
But the new Actros also shows what makes an optimum
workplace with a range of details, such as the optional,
upholstered armrest on the driver’s door1), and the
­practical stowage compartments, perfectly positioned
within reach of the driver’s seat and just the right
shape and size for the objects that need to be stored.
There is a wide choice of radios. All the radios have a USB
and Aux-in interface for connecting other devices. The
standard unit includes CD and Bluetooth connectivity.
There is an option which includes navigation and an
­excellent sound system with eight loudspeakers including
a subwoofer 2) which meets the most discerning
­requirements.
The comfort suspension seat and the climatised suspension seat with
a massage function are available to prevent tension. Seven air cushions are
inflated and then deflated again one after the other, producing a wave
The new heating system creates an optimum working
climate thanks to several innovations: for example,
the cab can be heated using the standard-specification
hot-water auxiliary heating. Optionally available is
the innovative residual engine heat utilisation, which
provides cosy heat for up to two hours after the engine
has been switched off without using any additional fuel.
An ­optional hot-water auxiliary heating system is also
­available which can heat both the cab and the engine,
as required.
All the cabs are equipped with an air-controlled heating
and air conditioning system. Automatic climate control
is also available for all cabs as an option.

An outstanding working climate – in the new Actros all the cabs are equipped as standard with an air-controlled heating and air conditioning system which is
characterised by its immediate response and facilitates draught-free ventilation thanks to the diffuser vent located in the instrument support. Options available
to enhance cab comfort include automatic climate control and auxiliary air conditioning 2). And the new optional residual engine heat utilisation system –
unique in long-distance transport – enables the cab to be heated for up to two hours after turning off the engine.

Lying down, sitting, standing –
it all just gets more comfortable from here.
The new Actros brings to the road everything you’ve previously had to do without in the way
of living comfort in long-distance transport – and everything you won’t ever want to miss again.
Freedom of movement aplenty, lots of stowage space,
maximum functionality and a pleasant atmosphere
throughout – where living comfort is concerned, too, the
new cabs for the Actros leave virtually nothing to be
­desired. In short: during breaks the new Actros offers
drivers far more headroom than is usual and a huge
amount of legroom when they are sitting down. Thanks
to the folding table on the underside of the bed with an
integral cutlery compartment and an optional refrigerator,
drivers will be less dependent on service stations. A few
simple steps are all it takes to convert the area from
a living room to a bedroom. The standard-fit comfort bed
on the bottom can be folded against the rear panel
of the cab. The comfort mattress – which also comes
as standard – is made of cold foam with 7 zones, so
­drivers can look forward to an excellent night’s sleep.
The multi-zone PremiumComfort cold-foam mattress
is available as an option. An optional 600 mm-wide
­ pper bed can be folded up by 90° in the GigaSpace for
u
optimum freedom of movement. With many individual
equipment items that are available on request the
new Actros not only offers optimum working and living
comfort – it also ensures that the needs of the driver
and any co-drivers are taken care of.
All cab variants combine a generous sense of spaciousness and superb
home comforts for working, resting and sleeping.

A better way of life when out on the road, too –
as of now.
At first glance – and after thousands of kilometres: the new interior design with the well-thought-out living concept ensures
maximum relaxation during breaks. What’s more: it even makes it possible for drivers to unwind at crowded service areas.
The new Actros stands for a new dimension of living
comfort – because the drivers’ best interests lay at the heart
of the development process for the new cabs: it wasn’t
only more room and more stowage space that were the
focus of attention – it was all about the effective, functional
interplay of both. Then it was necessary to select colours
and materials which underline this philosophy to optimum
effect – both to the touch and visually. By way of example,
the light colour scheme makes for a totally new, pleasant
sense of spaciousness, whilst at the same time emphasising the distinct separation of the workplace and living
area. And to ensure that everything stays looking this
good for a long time, only high-quality, easy to clean
­materials have been used.
The optionally available Home-Line and Style-Line interior
designs highlight the spacious ambience and increase
the individual feeling of wellbeing with lots of details
­inside and outside the cab.
A dazzling appearance – the optionally available Style-Line interior design featuring chrome-look trim parts lends the cab an up-to-the-minute ambience.
From the door handles and the edging around the air vents to the steering-column switch, the trim strips in the instrument support, the instrument cluster’s
white backlit graduated rings and the multifunction steering wheel – everything blends into a harmonious whole. Eye-catching flair on the exterior comes
­courtesy of the chrome strip on the sun visor, the chromed exterior-mirror cover and the illuminated Mercedes star.
Comfort | Living and sleeping comfort

High comfort is also reflected in lots of small details,
such as the standard-fit sockets in the instrument support
and in the co-driver’s footwell, which can be used for
plugging in additional items of electrical equipment such
as a television set or coffee machine. More sockets are
available on request. The comfort-enhancing details also
include the new standard-specification step lighting1),
which makes entering the vehicle easier and safer, plus
the optional ambience lighting. This subtle, blue interior
lighting has a total of 14 illuminated points on the cab’s
roof lining, on the instrument panel and in the footwell to
ensure a particularly cosy effect, not to mention better
orientation during overnight stays or when driving through
the night.
Details like the folding table on the co-driver’s side which
can be integrated into the instrument support as an
­option also take account of the driver’s need for optimum
living comfort. Meanwhile three different Comfort Packs,
all very favourably priced and available ex factory, make
it possible to fit the cab of the new Actros with many
more comfort-oriented features. The Top Comfort Pack,
for example, comprises 16 items of equipment in total,
including the refrigerator with a capacity of 36 l, an
electric pop-up roof, sunblinds for the side windows,
the ambience lighting mentioned above and last but
not least the automatic climate control.

A new dimension of stowage space.
For a new dimension of free space.
Space and stowage space galore – for applications in national and international long-distance transport.
For one or two drivers – and to meet the most discerning standards.
Quality and quantity – anyone who spends a lot of time out
and about on the road needs their own free space – and
space for the essentials needed on long journeys. This is
why the new cabs for the Actros offer more ­interior capacity,
more stowage space and more freedom of movement
than their predecessors. What’s more, there is now up to
2.13 m of headroom between the seats. The GigaSpace,
BigSpace and StreamSpace cabs have three large stowage
compartments above their windscreens, of which the
right-hand compartment ­contains an extendable, tilting
shaving mirror as standard. The stowage compartments
which can optionally be ­f itted with a hinged lid 1) are
­illuminated on the inside, fitted with anti-slip felt and,
in the case of the StreamSpace cab with a width of
2300 mm, for instance, provide approximately 137 l of
stowage space. The open stowage facilities directly
­beneath them round off the varied range of stowage space
available, ensuring that things are kept even tidier.
With its huge amount of stowage space the GigaSpace cab even offers two occupants enough room for storing everything they need to take with them.
The stowage compartment concept above the windscreen not only offers outstanding stowage capacity, it also provides previously unattained freedom of
­movement. As standard the three large stowage compartments are illuminated on the inside and fitted with hinged lids. As an option a reinforced,
break-in-resistant valuables compartment can also be integrated on the co-driver’s side.
Comfort | Living and sleeping comfort
18
The stowage compartments in the cabs with a width of
2500 mm offer yet more comfort and more stowage space.
They combine maximum headroom with an impressive
stowage capacity above the windscreen in the GigaSpace
and BigSpace cabs. For a better overview and more flexible
use of the stowage space, the centre compartment in
the GigaSpace and BigSpace cab can be equipped with an
optional additional shelf. A lockable hinged lid or an antitheft compartment for valuables add further scope for safe
storage as an option. As well as the generous amount of
stowage space above the windscreen, cabs with a level
floor include a drawer beneath the instrument support
as standard, creating further easily accessible space for
storing things. A second, lower drawer is optionally
available. For cabs with a 170 mm engine tunnel a drawer
is available on request. Additionally, for the Actros with
an engine tunnel, an open storage tray with cupholders, a
high-level closed stowage compartment and a refrigerator
on the engine tunnel with a volume of 25 litres are also
available. Plus, there are other practical details available
for all the cabs, helping to ensure that the available
space can always be used effectively and to suit individual requirements.

More stowage space – all the cabs with a level floor have
two illuminated stowage compartments which are accessible from the inside and outside and have a capacity
of up to 420 l. The outer stowage compartment flaps are
designed so that even large drinks crates can be loaded
through them. As part of the standard specification, one
or two – depending on the cab width – easily accessible
drawers with a capacity of up to 138 l are integrated into
the centre section beneath the bed. As an option a refri­
gerator can also be included here. In conjunction with a
level cab floor the refrigerator, which is in easy reach
of the driver’s seat, has a capacity of 36 l, and 26 l in the
case of vehicles with an engine tunnel. A luggage rack
available as an optional extra, or the stowage nets available
on request for the rear panel, as well as for the side wall
adjacent to the upper bed, increase stowage capacity
further still. The beds have been completely redeveloped
and they too offer plenty of space, which means lots of
comfort. In the cabs with a width of 2300 mm the comfort
bed on the bottom is 750 mm wide, and 2000 mm long.
In the cabs with a width of 2500 mm the bed’s width is
750 mm and the length 2200 mm. The lower comfort bed’s
back section can be raised in stages to allow a customised
resting position. For applications requiring two drivers,
a 750 mm wide comfort bed with levelling control is
available on request for the top. Simply practical: an upper
comfort bed with a width of 600 mm available as an
­option can be folded out during the journey. For a really
good night’s sleep the new beds are fitted as standard
with the 110 mm-thick comfort mattress made of cold
foam and with 7 zones. And for even more comfort when
lying down and sleeping the PremiumComfort mattress
is available as an option. To create an excellent climate
for sleeping it is equipped with a vertical tube system
of cold foam – this includes various hardness grades all
over for optimum comfort when lying down. All the
­mattress covers are suitable for people who suffer from
allergies. Further comfort features of the new-generation
beds include the good rear ventilation through a mesh
fabric and the enduring quality.

The new dimension of economy.
We called everything into question when developing the new Actros, the result being a significant reduction in fuel consumption.
Another consequence can be seen in the particularly low overall costs through closely meshed services which have been
specially tailored to the new Actros, such as the Mercedes-Benz telematics system FleetBoard, which is fitted as standard.
All these measures have a common objective: to increase your profitability.
With up to 7% less fuel consumption than its predecessor,
the new Actros with the Euro V in-line engine is an
­extremely economical vehicle. The standard Euro VI
­engines also set benchmarks – with up to 5% lower
­consumption than their predecessors with a Euro V engine.
The Euro VI engines are available in four displacement
capacities and a total of 16 output levels, from 175 kW
(238 hp) to 460 kW (625 hp). Through the interaction
of these newly-developed, low-consumption engines
with a whole host of further innovative solutions, the new
Actros sets benchmarks where economy is concerned.
Consumption-reduced auxiliary consumers, for instance,
also contribute to the significant saving, as does the
­optimised standard-fit Mercedes PowerShift 3 automated
transmission, the sophisticated aerodynamics and the
innovative Predictive Powertrain Control assistance system.
An extremely profitable global solution – to enable you
to exploit the technical potential of the new Actros
to an even better degree, we are placing more emphasis
on interlinking our trucks and our services: this covers
various services which have been specially tailored to
the newly developed Actros and which help to achieve
particularly low overall costs and therefore a very
­profitable global solution. Examples include the use of
state-of-the-art telematics solutions as standard, a
­comprehensive Service Contract, favourable terms and
conditions for leasing and financing with high residual
values plus consumption-reducing training measures.
In everyday terms this all adds up to low overall costs
and more profitability for you – right from day one.
Trucks cost money. The Actros helps to save it – through the combination of
innovative vehicle technology and custom-designed services your operations
will be particularly cost-efficient with the Actros out on the road for you.

Many innovations – one objective: less consumption.
Up to 7% less fuel consumption with Euro V and up to 5% less with Euro VI – these are the pioneering fuel savings made possible
by the new Actros compared to its predecessor. It is not just the completely redeveloped engines that make this possible – there are many
other optimised components which contribute directly and indirectly towards lower consumption. The innovative assistance system
Predictive Powertrain Control enables further fuel savings of up to 5% to be made.
From the engine, transmission and axles to the auxiliary
consumers, wind and rolling resistance – no stone was
left unturned to cut consumption when the new Actros
was being developed. Alongside the frugal in-line engines
and the higher engine cooling capacity, other factors
contributing to lower consumption include a wide choice
of rear axle ratios matched to various operating profiles
offered as standard. The optionally available, innovative
Predictive Powertrain Control system integrates an
­additional mode to the automatic transmission system that
adapts to the topography of the road ahead: drawing on
satellite positioning technology and a 3D map, the system
identifies the road ahead and any upcoming inclines and
reacts accordingly by optimising gear-shift points and
cruise control speeds in anticipation of these topographical
changes. This can result in additional fuel savings of up to
5%. An economical driving style is further supported by
reduced gear-shift times and the “economy” and “fleet”
driving modes. The savings potential from auxiliary
­consumers has also been exploited: the on-demand
­compressed-air control system, for example, saves fuel
when decelerating through well-directed provisioning.
The power-steering pump makes savings because the
support it provides is controlled at low engine speed.
The optional innovative residual engine heat utilisation
system also saves fuel. With the optional hot-water
­auxiliary heating, the engine and cab can now also be
heated separately and therefore more economically.
The design of the cabs has been optimised right down
to the smallest detail to give reduced wind resistance.
Aerodynamic detachable body parts which can be ordered
on request cut consumption even further. The new
­Actros can be equipped with a tyre pressure monitoring
system – as tyre pressure that is too low can result in up
to 4% more fuel consumption. And the super-wide tyres 1)
available on request for the drive axle on 4 x 2 tractor
units reduce the rolling resistance further still. With up to
7% less consumption than its predecessor in the case of
Euro V and up to 5% less in the case of Euro VI, in technical
terms the new Actros offers the best preconditions
for more profitable operation than any model before it.
The consumption-optimised two-stage air compressor with power
loss-optimised idling is just one of many examples which contribute to the
new Actros’s low consumption. Its lower weight and higher reliability
are further advantages.

Investment.
The best truck is the truck that suits you to a T.
The investment in a truck must be carefully planned. So
as to ensure it meets all your requirements, we fitted out
the new Actros with everything that makes a truck for
long-distance transport state-of-the-art. What’s more, we
optimised it further for specific end uses. The Actros
Loader and Actros Volumer, for example, ensure greater
economy from the start for end uses requiring a greater
payload or a particularly large volume. You’ll find out more
about these models on pages 42 to 47. But in addition to
outstanding vehicle technology, tailored services also help
to save money. The starting point for most services is
FleetBoard: this is a telematics-based internet service
which, in conjunction with FleetBoard Vehicle Management
or FleetBoard Time Management for example, represents
leading-edge vehicle and transport management. The
FleetBoard driving analysis very often gives pointers to fuel
savings of up to 10%. There is an additional cost advantage
to you if you sign up for a full Service Contract and use of
the FleetBoard “Service” module. Mercedes-Benz Finance
can offer finance and leasing solutions to suit your needs.
Mercedes-Benz Contract Hire ensures you get the repair

There are numerous benefits to choosing Mercedes-Benz
Contract Hire, not least extra maintenance cover for your
commercial fleet. With a Contract Hire agreement you can
choose from a wide variety of options including, collection
and delivery of vehicles for scheduled maintenance, tyre
replacements and also replacement vehicles in the event

An accomplished driver can make a good truck great.
In long-distance transport, the outlay for fuel is the
­largest cost factor. Through an excellent combination of
vehicle technology and services such as FleetBoard
­driving analysis and extra driver training, impressive
cost savings can be achieved: the new Actros with
Euro V, for example, can use up to 7% less fuel than its
predecessor; and up to 5% less with Euro VI. And with
the optionally available Predictive Powertrain Control
assistance system, further fuel savings of up to 5% are
possible. The FleetBoard driving analysis provides an
­objective assessment of driving styles and prevents drivers
sliding back into old driving habits which use more fuel.
And with the help of the FleetBoard EcoSupport system,
drivers can continue to optimise their driving styles.
­Additionally, with Mercedes-Benz Eco Training, a way of
driving is taught that saves up to 10% fuel. In short:
an accomplished driver can make a good truck great.

As a proud owner of a Mercedes-Benz, we’re sure
you want to look after it. To get the best out of your
truck and to keep it running how the Mercedes-Benz
engineers intended, we recommend that you have it
maintained and serviced at regular intervals at any
one of our Mercedes-Benz Authorised Dealers located

Residual value.
A first-class truck is an investment in the next truck.
The residual value of your truck is almost as important
as the initial investment. The higher the residual value
at the end of a truck’s period of use, the lower your
overall procurement costs will be for that new truck.
To provide certainty on the future value, and so
that you know what resale value to incorporate into
any whole-life-cost calculation, we can – if you
wish – guarantee the buy-back price to you either

The new dimension of driving dynamics.
Precisely tuned drive system configurations, immediate power delivery, increased driving stability, improved steering characteristics and,
last but not least, numerous, and new, assistance and safety systems – all of this palpably eases the burden on drivers, giving them a totally
new driving feel. In short: no other truck drives in such an outstandingly capable, safe way as the new Actros.
The new Actros is characterised by superb driving
­dynamics, because the optimum balance between comfort,
direct road feel and very good driveability and control
has been found: in order to achieve this, many of the
components for the drive system, chassis and suspension
were redeveloped and significant improvements were
made to tried-and-tested elements. For example, the optimised response of the new high-torque in-line engines
and the shift strategy of the standard-fit automated
transmission which works in perfect harmony with them
ensure much more immediate, more comfortable moving
off than was the case with the predecessor. The hypoid
rear axle has also been further optimised, the power
produced in the engine now being transferred to the road
more efficiently than ever before – for optimum suitability
for operating profiles, low consumption and thus greater
economy.
When it comes to ride comfort, too, everything is perfectly
coordinated: from the new steering system, the wider
frame with its more rigid design and the new 4-bellows
air suspension to the unique, innovative rear axle
guide1) which is responsible for better understeer/over­
steer characteristics and more transverse stability. High
levels of safety as standard come courtesy of the proven
Electronic Braking System and the Stability Control
­Assist. Over and above this there are safety and assistance
systems available on request to help the driver in stressful
situations, including the new Attention Assist, the
­enhanced Active Brake Assist 3 and Proximity Control
Assist with a stop-and-go function. Optionally available
features such as the bi-xenon headlamps, cornering
light function, LED daytime running lamps and the
standard LED tail lights increase passive safety. For the
person behind the wheel this means maximum ride
comfort and a very safe and stress-free drive – from the
start of the journey to the destination.

More about this on pages 38/39.
Driving dynamics
35
This is where driving enjoyment
and economy pull together.
Engines, transmissions, axles – in the new Actros all the components are perfectly coordinated:
for greater economy, high performance and a tangibly improved driving experience.
It becomes clear just from moving off that the new hightorque 6-cylinder in-line engines featuring common-rail
high-pressure injection with injection pressure of up
to 2400 bar are characterised by their refinement, their
immediate, comfortable response and high performance.
The enhanced, standard-specification Mercedes PowerShift 3 12-speed automated transmission, conveniently
operated via the right steering-column lever, immediately
and efficiently transmits the tremendous power to the
rear axle through precise gear selection and fast gearshifts.
The improved shift strategy is co-responsible for this,
taking into account factors such as the combination weight,
the angle of inclination of the road and the position of
the accelerator when selecting the optimum gear. If need
be the driver has the option of intervening manually. The
selectively engageable “economy” driving mode supports
a particularly economical driving style, the “power”
driving program a very dynamic one. Additional functions,
such as the opportunity to shift rapidly from 1 to R and
high-ratio reverse gears, ensure that manoeuvring is
smooth and rapid. And moving off is now significantly
more comfortable, thanks to the new crawl function.
The hypoid rear axle with single-stage reduction supports
the especially good driving feel in the new Actros too.
The lower hypoid gear causes less friction and therefore
saves fuel. Meanwhile, there are virtually twice as many
rear axle ratios to choose from than for the predecessor –
ensuring an optimum, fuel-saving solution for practically
any application in long-distance transport. Whether rigid
vehicle or tractor unit – the new Actros ensures that you
are always economical when out on the road – and that
the driver experiences a comfortable, smooth drive every
day. The optionally available, innovative Predictive
­Powertrain Control system integrates an additional mode
to the automatic trans­mission system that adapts to
the topography of the road ahead: drawing on satellite
positioning technology and a 3D map, the system identifies
the road ahead and any upcoming inclines and reacts
accordingly by optimising gear-shift points and cruise
control speeds in anticipation of these topographical
changes. This can result in a­ dditional fuel savings of
up to 5%.
Tangible dynamism, easy handling and low consumption: the proven gearbox
and standard-fit Mercedes PowerShift 3 12-speed automated transmission
ensure high levels of ride comfort and optimum economy in practically every
driving situation, thanks to precise gear selection and very short shift times.

standard-fit 4-bellows air suspension also does its bit.
Another decisive role is played by the new innovative
rear axle guide1), whilst the conventional wishbone has
been given a discrete design: the points at which the
two trailing arms are connected to the rear axle have been
positioned further outwards, which means that the rear
axle is guided more stably. In conjunction with the new

On the new Actros several innovations – all perfectly tuned with one another – ensure optimised road holding and an outstandingly capable, safe driving feel:
these features include the wider, more rigid frame, the 4-bellows air suspension and the innovative rear axle guide1). The new wishbone guides the rear axle
more stably as the connection is positioned further outwards, resulting in the best possible degree of transverse stability. An extremely high level of steering
­accuracy and very good understeer/oversteer characteristics are further advantages which mean that less corrective steering is necessary, and thus ensure
more safety and outstanding capability.

steering system this leads to more transverse stability,
fewer rolling movements, less need for corrective steering,
plus better understeer/oversteer characteristics for
an outstandingly capable, safe driving feel. In short:
we haven’t just improved driving characteristics –
we’ve revolutionised them.

Feel safe – from the start of your journey
to the final destination.
More safety in any driving situation – through assistance and safety systems which actively
ease the burden on the driver, treat the vehicle and its cargo with care and thus help inject
more profitability into long-distance transport – on every single journey.
In the new Actros you’ll be a significant step ahead when
it comes to safety, too. Alongside the proven Electronic
Braking System with the anti-lock braking system ABS,
acceleration skid control ASR, Brake Assist and hill holder,
Stability Control Assist (fitted as standard) and Proximity
Control Assist with the stop-and-go function (fitted as
an option) provide a high level of safety. The new Attention
Assist 1) system can further increase safety. It monitors
certain factors such as steering characteristics and can
recognise when the driver is becoming increasingly tired
or inattentive and give out a visual and audible warning
with a recommendation to take a break. Attention Assist
is available in conjunction with the optional Lane Keeping
Assist system. Other functions are available to take the
load off the driver further still: the rain/light sensor,
which is fitted as standard; and as options, the co-driver
mirror with a manoeuvring function, the tyre pressure
monitoring system and a sensed fifth-wheel coupling,
whose locking status is indicated in the instrument cluster.
The highly luminous headlamps on the new Actros are
optionally available as a bi-xenon version. LED tail lights
are standard and on request, safety can be increased
further by the new cornering light function and the
LED daytime running lamps. The standard-specification
­follow-me-home lights show the driver the way when
getting into or out of the vehicle. To keep wear on the
brakes low, a powerful engine brake is fitted as standard.
Over and above this the Actros can be equipped with the
new High Performance Brake 2). For even more comfortable
braking a newly developed, more powerful – yet at the
same time quieter – retarder is available, which is now
cooled with the engine’s coolant instead of oil, and is
more efficient and lighter. It is fully integrated into the
brake system and provides a braking torque of up to
3500 Nm. Safety Packs available on request enhance safety
and with their low-cost package prices and attractive
­f inancing or leasing terms and conditions, they also play
a part in ensuring greater profitability. Further details
on pages 54/55.
The new Attention Assist 1) system, which is available as an option, can detect
signs of increasing tiredness and inattention. It can issue a visual and audible
warning sign and recommend the driver takes a break.

The new dimension in payload capacity:
Actros Loader and Actros Volumer.
Ensuring that, when it comes to payload and volume, you get more of both: in the new Actros Loader
and the new Actros Volumer you have two specialists at your disposal that can transport more – as standard.
With the new Actros, you can have even more economical
long-distance transport operations than before. And so
that the same can be said for payload-sensitive trans­
portation and high-volume haulage, we have developed
the Actros Loader and the Actros Volumer. For as we
all know, special jobs need special tools for the job –
or rather, special vehicles.
For the new Actros Loader, every possibility to reduce
weight was examined and – if it made technical sense –
systematically implemented. The result: payload-optimised
tractor units and rigid vehicles which are amongst the
lightest in the long-distance transport sector. Ex-factory.
With high-performance, economical Euro VI engines,
cabs matched to the jobs they have to do – and without
taking anything away from the high safety standards of
the Actros. The new Actros Volumer also makes it possible
to operate even more economically. As a high-volume
haulage specialist, it meets the exacting requirements
of low height Eurotrailers, thanks to its coupling point
height of under 900 mm. In practice, this means a
clear loading height of 3 m. In addition to the large
­cargo volume, powertrain configurations which are
­particularly efficient with fuel and the larger available
tank volume on the new Actros Volumer all contribute
to greater economy. Job-matched cab variants such
as the CompactSpace, which is particularly well-suited
to car transportation, also play their part. On the next
few pages we would like to present some of the defining
characteristics of the Actros Loader and the Actros
­Volumer to you. For more information, and for your own
very specific vehicle configuration, please contact
your Mercedes-Benz Dealer.

The new Actros Loader:
For those who want more payload.
Lower weight, more payload – from the radiator grille to the end crossmember. The new Actros Loader was specifically designed to meet
the requirements of payload-sensitive sectors. For that reason it is one of the lightest trucks in long-distance transport, regardless of whether
you go for a tractor unit or a rigid truck. Quite simply, you can pack more onto the new Actros Loader. And that pays dividends. Every trip.
The concept of a payload-oriented long-haul truck is not
new – but it has never been realised before in such a
­systematic manner. The result: despite the significantly
more weight-intensive Euro VI technology deployed, the
Actros Loader is considerably lighter than the existing,
and proven, Euro V Actros. This has been brought about
by a series of large and small weight-reducing measures,
implemented as standard. In order to give you the greatest
possible flexibility when configuring your vehicle, you
can also choose not to have certain measures implemented.
In short: you decide for yourself how much you need to
fully exploit the payload potential of the Actros Loader
and thereby operate with extremely low unladen weight.
Both as tractor unit or rigid, the new Actros Loader models
are offered with a wide range of frugal engine options
to suit the task at hand: 7.7 l displacement and an output
of 200 kW 1) (272 hp) up to 260 kW (354 hp), or 10.7 l
displacement and an output of 240 kW (326 hp) up to
315 kW (428 hp), all with 8 or 12-speed Mercedes
PowerShift­ 3 transmissions and super-wide tyres on
­aluminium rims 2) as standard.
There is a choice of ClassicSpace or StreamSpace cabs,
with 170 mm or 320 mm engine tunnels – offering the
ultimate in flexibility to suit the operation. The fact that
the new Actros Loader is one of the lightest trucks in
long-distance transport doesn’t mean that you have to
do without the high levels of safety so typical for the
­Actros, however. As with all Actros models, the Actros
Loader is available with a complete range of safety
­systems – either singly or bundled in appropriate and
particularly reasonably-priced optional Safety Packs.
For it’s clear: large payloads don’t pay off until they
have arrived safely at their destination.
Just one of many weight-reducing measures: in order to make the Actros
Loader even lighter, the cab will be delivered without external access to the
storage lockers unless specified.

The new Actros Volumer:
For those who need more space.
Huge transportation volumes, fuel-saving powertrain configurations, an increased range and perfect alignment
to the application for which you intend to deploy it – the new Actros Volumer shows how tractor units and rigid trucks
need to be built today, to make high-volume haulage especially profitable.
True greatness – as a real high-volume haulage specialist
the new Actros Volumer gives you some major benefits:
huge transportation volumes, an increased range and
high levels of economy.
The Actros Volumer can optionally be configured, in
conjunction with 315/45 tyres, to offer a coupling point
height of under 900 mm on air-sprung 4 x 2 tractor units,
giving a clear loading height of 3 m – and therefore the
possibility of stacking three standard crates on top of
each other. What’s more, the Actros Volumer combines
the low coupling point height with other important
­benefits. The maximum fuel tank volume, for example,
has been increased to 990 l, and is thus some 10% larger
than in the predecessor model – and this despite having
Euro VI exhaust technology, which requires more space.
Low-frame rigid trucks have a maximum fuel tank volume
of 1000 l, an increase of 70%. That saves money through
removing the need to retro-fit tank add-ons, for example.
And the economical 6-cylinder in-line engines, available
in 12 power bands from 175 kW (238 hp) to 350 kW 1)
(476 hp), play their part in increasing the range. Over
and above this, the powertrain configurations that have
been optimised for their end-use applications make the
Actros Volumer a truly economical haulage solution – for
the wide range of rear axle ratios available means that,
even with 315/45 tyres, the Actros Volumer can always
be fitted with direct drive transmission. And that saves
up to 1% fuel compared to overdrive transmission. In
­addition, a range of eleven different cab variants – from
the GigaSpace through to the CompactSpace cab, which is
ideal for car transportation – provides the right amount of
space for practically every requirement in international
and domestic high-volume haulage. In short: the new
Actros Volumer brings together three decisive advantages
in one vehicle: huge transportation volume, increased
range and excellent economy.
Large volumes and Euro VI as well – with a fuel tank volume of up to 990 l
for tractor units and up to 1000 l for low-frame platform trucks, the Actros
Volumer provides an especially long range for high-volume haulage.

More efficiency through more transparency.
FleetBoard: Vehicle Management, Logistics Management and Time Management – all from a single source,
making your job that much easier.
With FleetBoard inside, the new Actros offers you the best
prerequisites to make your transport operations even more
profitable. What’s more: new FleetBoard customers can
test the system free of charge for the first four months1).
FleetBoard Vehicle Management cuts fuel costs and
wear, and facilitates longer maintenance intervals of up
to 150,000 km – not to mention higher vehicle uptime.
You can read more about all this on pages 30 to 33. The
optional FleetBoard Logistics Management helps achieve
more efficiency in logistics processes. The basis for this
is the DispoPilot.guide. It is permanently installed in the
cab and has a 185 x 120 x 25.5 mm (W x H x D) screen. Its
benefits include the ability to send order data to the vehicle
in real time, transfer addresses directly to the navigation
system and manage journeys efficiently. Plus: at all times
you are kept fully updated on the vehicle, journey and
order status. This also helps to ensure optimum capacity
utilisation for your new Actros. A further means of
­optimising your logistics processes comes in the form
of the optional DispoPilot.mobile. In contrast to the
­DispoPilot.guide it can also be used outside the vehicle, for
example for scanning in goods and recording the ­digital
The optional FleetBoard Logistics Management enables efficient communication with the driver – the direct transmission of all the order and journey details
to the DispoPilot.mobile prevents detours from having to be made, as well as misunderstandings. Further advantages: with the integral barcode scanner

signature. Over and above this, FleetBoard Logistics
Management can be integrated into your company’s
own job scheduling, logistics and ERP system – whilst
maintaining full process reliability – meaning that
­logistics managers can use the software they are familiar
with, yet still include all the FleetBoard data.
With FleetBoard Time Management you comply with all
the legal regulations regarding the archiving of driving
times and rest periods – this practically takes care of itself,
because the recording of driver-card and mass-storage
data happens at the press of a button or completely automatically from the distribution manager’s workstation,
without the driver and vehicle having to return to your
transportation company. This saves money and reduces
the amount of administration work. With the FleetBoard
app for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch you are kept
­informed wherever you are about whether the journeys
are going as planned or if measures need to be taken
at short notice – including at night in case of emergency.

through full galvanisation – that results in fewer costs
for you: it’s also down to the design of the new Actros,
which attaches particular importance to ease of repair

The perfect financing arrangement for every business.
Mercedes-Benz Finance is the international financial services, Contract Hire and fleet management arm of Mercedes-Benz.
We provide a range of finance options, vehicle service plans and specialised insurance cover to HGV and LGV operators of all sizes
and in all business sectors through our extensive Mercedes-Benz Dealer network.
At Mercedes-Benz Finance, our aim is simple: to deliver an
unparalleled level of service to each and every one of our
customers. This applies equally whether you’re a business
owner operating a single commercial vehicle, or a main
fleet buyer responsible for a large number of vehicles.
So as well as offering a superb range of high quality commercial vehicles, we also bring you the perfect financing
arrangement. We can also provide you with a service
plan that’ll keep your fleet running smoothly and cost
effectively for years to come.
All of our dealerships have dedicated Finance Specialists.
With their extensive knowledge they can talk you through
all aspects of finance and Service Contracts, ensuring you
get exactly the solution your business needs. The most
widely-used finance arrangement for commercial vehicles
is Contract Hire, and there are many other options avail­
able to suit your requirements. If you’re considering
ownership, you can select Hire Purchase or our Agility
scheme.

Or perhaps a lease would be more suitable. If you want the
use of high quality vehicles for your business, but you
don’t want to spend too much of your capital in acquiring
them, an Operating Lease or Finance Lease might be what
you’re looking for. We can also provide Service Contracts
which are designed to help you keep your vehicles running
with maximum cost-efficiency. We’ll take care of all the
repairs and maintenance you require for a fixed monthly
sum, which means any variable and unforeseen running
costs simply disappear.
Contract Hire can be seen as a combination of an operating
lease, plus repair and maintenance agreement, all
­arranged into one simple monthly payment. It requires no
capital investment and the vehicle is not shown on your
balance sheet. Instead of owning the vehicle or vehicles,
you hire them for a fixed period, usually three to five
years, for a fixed monthly fee. This fee is based on the
difference between the initial value of the vehicles
and their projected value at the end of the agreement.
So you only repay a portion of the vehicle’s costs –
good news for your cash flow.
With a Contract Hire agreement, you avoid any concerns
about the future value of your vehicle – at the end of your
agreement you simply hand it back.
Mercedes-Benz Contract Hire –
the business benefits.
–– Throughout the life of the arrangement,
you’ll know exactly what your outgoings
are every month
–– Benefits to choosing Mercedes-Benz Finance
Contract Hire include fixed costs for running
your vehicle or fleet, outsourced administration
and management and additional credit lines
–– With Contract Hire you can choose from
a variety of options to complement the
basic operating lease. Typically a Contract
Hire agreement would cover all scheduled
maintenance, all necessary repairs including
brake pads and clutches and 24-hour roadside
assistance 365 days a year
–– Depending on what suits you and your
­business, you can also add items such as
­replacement vehicle in the event of breakdown,
tyre replacements, maintenance for vehicle

For the most discerning of requirements –
genuine accessories.
The new Actros sets benchmarks in every respect – a standard also met by Mercedes-Benz genuine accessories.
They are versatile, functional and attractive – right down to the smallest detail.
The new Actros offers working, living and sleeping comfort
like virtually no other vehicle in long-distance transport.
With the genuine accessories you can lend this comfort
the perfect finishing touch and give your new Actros a
very personal feel. For an elegant look, for instance, the
chrome louvres are ideal, underlining the striking design
and the distinctive lines of the new Actros. A further
­example of elegant detail: the entry emblem in stainless
steel with Mercedes-Benz lettering, which, depending
on the version chosen, for example in illuminated or
­reflected blue, is visually very striking.
But the genuine accessories do not just add emphasis
in visual terms: the mobile phone cradle for the iPhone 4
connects your iPhone to the outside aerial and can be
operated through the multifunction steering wheel. The
universal cradle will hold many other mobile phone
types securely while driving, and charge them, too. The
cradle can be used in conjunction with a pre-installation
available ex-factory. The roof-mounted auxiliary air
­conditioning system will help you keep a cool head when
temperatures are high. It has a cooling output of up
to 850 W and ensures a pleasant interior climate, also
through the additional dehumidifying feature. Details
such as the hard-wearing ribbed floor mats which were
specially designed for the new Actros or the mats for the
stowage lockers help ensure that everything remains in
fine condition and as good as new. Meanwhile, additional
items of equipment like a coffee machine with a stainlesssteel vacuum flask, plus a kettle with a capacity of 0.75 l
and an automatic shut-off mechanism make you more
independent of what are often expensive service stations.
Over and above all this our genuine accessories range
offers many items of equipment and details which enable
you to personalise your new Actros further still. You
can find an extensive overview in the separate Actros
accessories brochure. Or just ask your local Mercedes-Benz
Dealer – who will be delighted to see you and happy
to advise you.
Stylish appearance: with the chrome louvres you can embellish the striking,
dynamic design of the new Actros with even more distinctive lines.

Everything you need for long-distance transport.
The new Actros. The most important facts in brief.
A higher level of comfort – the new Actros offers
­maximum comfort for driving, working and living.
Increased economy. The new Actros impresses with
considerably reduced overall costs – from day one.
Impressive driving dynamics – the new Actros is
­simple, safe and almost effortless to drive and steer.
•Five cabs: CompactSpace, ClassicSpace, StreamSpace,
•Pioneering fuel savings of up to 7% with Euro V and
•Through the optimisation and redevelopment of all
BigSpace, GigaSpace. With more interior capacity,
stowage space and freedom of movement than their
predecessors
•Eleven cab variants for use in national and international
long-distance transport
•The completely redesigned workplace with newly
­developed seats in a light, friendly ambience facilitates
concentrated, stress-free work
•All controls are ergonomically arranged, and can
be operated easily and intuitively; the standard-fit
­automated transmission enhances ride comfort
even further
•The well-thought-out living concept and the homely
interior design ensure a high degree of relaxation
­during breaks
•Newly developed, very generously sized comfort beds
encourage restful sleep – on both the top and bottom
up to 5% with Euro VI in comparison with their Euro V
predecessors. The optimised drive system with very
frugal, efficient engines, sophisticated aerodynamics
and many further technical innovations form the
basis for these.
•The innovative Predictive Powertrain Control assistance
system can save as much as a further 5% of fuel
•Through the optimised combination of innovative
­vehicle technology and leading services the new Actros
represents a lower-cost, particularly profitable global
solution in long-distance transport
•The combination of different services increases
