The ideal conditions for more job satisfaction
The cabs of the new Actros convince even the most critical test drivers. And the most cost-conscious too.
Because they combine comfort and cost-effectiveness. With exemplary ergonomics, numerous new, practical features
as standard and - not least - through their trailblazing design.

Strikingly attractive and powerful – the new Actros.
From the sun visor right down to the front apron. All
new, but still typical of the Actros. All the more because
the design of the new Actros is not just attractive, but
also leaves nothing to chance where comfort, safety and
economy in day-to-day operations are concerned.
As a driving, working and living environment, the cabs
meet today’s increasing expectations even more fully. The improved corner panels combine better looks with better aerodynamics The geometry of the newly designed exterior mirrors ensures less vibration

which is included as standard, and many other practical

Everything in the new Actros serves a single purpose:
to make your job comfortable, safe and cost-effective.

You can’t put a price on motivation.
But you can on the cabs that provide it
The cabs of the new Actros feature countless examples of how ergonomics, comfort and design
can be combined to produce the one factor that is probably most important of all in international
long-distance operations: the motivation to take pleasure in a job well done.

The interior of the Actros: great freedom of movement
and plenty of working and living space. The L and
Mega­space cabs are equipped with an air-sprung driver’s
suspension seat, manually adjustable air conditioning
and the new lower comfort bed as standard, plus numer-
ous practical shelves and stowage compartments. The
Single Cab is available as an option for solo drivers,
­providing even more comfort during breaks and after the
working day. The more direct steering makes for an
­easier workload in the 4 x 2 semitrailer tractors with
air suspension, and the optional rain and light sensor
­improves both operating comfort and safety. The atmo-
sphere and quality of finish inside the new Actros are
also convincing – high-grade materials and attractively
coordinated colours ensure a high-quality feel and
­appearance. To make sure that the driver feels at his
or her very best on the road.
The Megaspace cab meets the very highest expectations. Both in terms of freedom of movement and working/living comfort. From the completely level floor
with standing room of 1.92 m to the standard comfort suspension seat for the driver and the mature cockpit design, and right up to the first-class beds
and plenty of practical stowage facilities – including two separate, externally accessible stowage compartments for the necessary vehicle tools. In short,
the Mega­space cab has everything you need on a long journey. And everything to make a driver’s heart beat faster
