Modern, ergonomic, practical, motivating and not least of all efficiency-boosting. Whether you are a driver or fleet operator, we're convinced you'll be delighted by the workplace in the new Actros. It offers the driver the best possible working and driving conditions.

The Touch Control Button on the right-hand side serves to operate the primary display (instrument cluster), while the Touch Control Button on the left is used for the secondary Multi-Touch-Display.

Steering wheel.

The leather steering wheel with a diameter of 450 mm increases comfort and also contributes to an individual, homely atmosphere. Leather as a natural material quickly adapts to major temperature differences. The insert and the multifunction buttons are available in two versions: black grained and silver shadow chrome. In the area of the spokes, the leather is perforated.

Keyless Start.

With the high-quality remote control key, the vehicle can be conveniently opened or locked from a distance of up to 50 metres. The radio remote control features direction-independent operation and does not need to be aimed directly at the vehicle.

To start the vehicle, the key does not need to be inserted but must simply be in the vehicle or within a maximum radius of two metres around the start-stop button. The engine is switched off by pressing the start-stop button. A surface-mounted, chrome-plated Mercedes star ensures an attractive appearance of the key.

The driver's and co-driver's doors can be locked and unlocked by radio remote control. The driver's and co-driver's doors can still be conveniently locked and unlocked from the inside using the manual switch in the doors. With the comfort opening/closing system, the side windows and sliding sunroof are operated by means of the remote control. A receiver in the dashboard console converts the radio commands accordingly and controls the locking system.

Convenience central locking system.

In conjunction with the new convenience key, the locking system increases operating convenience and security.

In addition to the legally required light check, the driver's and co-driver's doors, the side windows and the sliding sunroof can be conveniently opened and closed, or unlocked and locked, by pressing a button on the convenience key using radio remote control.

Engine start/stop button.

To start the engine with the engine start-stop button it is sufficient for the new convenience key to be located inside the cab.

Parking brake, electronic with hold function.

The new electronic parking brake with hold function combines easier handling and greater safety.

It is automatically activated when the engine is turned off – but can also be turned on and off by operating the lever in the cockpit. The integrated hold function is activated when the vehicle is stationary – at a red light, for example – simply by pressing down hard on the brake pedal. The function is released once the accelerator pedal is operated again.

Remote online & Remote Truck App4.

Remote Online makes it possible to connect a mobile device, such as the driver's smartphone, to the vehicle's own network.

With the associated app, the driver can check or control a wide variety of vehicle functions from a distance of up to 25 metres. From fuel level and tyre pressure to radio settings and interior lighting.

Radio infotainment system2.

The new Actros comes as standard with an integrated radio infotainment system that conjures up a whole new feeling in the cab. A digital radio featuring Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) is also optionally available. Numerous connection options are available for integrating external devices.

Digital radio.

Thanks to the digital receiver, terrestrial digital DAB and DAB+ programmes can also be received in addition to conventional radio programmes. Therefore, depending on the country, a large selection of other stations in CD quality is available. Other advantages include excellent reception characteristics and valuable additional information, for example on the radio programme.

Multimedia Radio Touch.

The Multimedia Radio Touch with its 17.7 cm colour display can be operated intuitively via the touchscreen and offers numerous convenience features. These include the Bluetooth interface for hands-free calling and audio streaming, as well as convenient access to smartphone content via Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink.

Sound system6.

First-class sound and optimum surround sound in the cab: The multi-channel sound system with state-of-the-art technology and a total of nine speakers ensures optimum sound quality, leaving nothing to be desired when it comes to music enjoyment.

With five main channels and a separate low-frequency-effect channel, it offers innovative sound technology in Dolby Digital 5.1 format. Added to this is a full, rich reproduction in the low frequency range from a frequency of 20 Hz.

Playback is via 7 + 1 speakers, all of which are specially coordinated and matched to each other. The bass/mid-range speakers provide better reproduction of treble and bass frequencies than standard broadband speakers. Two tweeters are placed in the A-pillars, two woofers/mid-range speakers (160 mm) in the doors, two full-range speakers (100 mm) in the shelf above the windscreen and an active subwoofer (100 W) in a 20 l bass reflex speaker in the left-hand stowage compartment.

Navigation system and Traffic Sign Assist4,2.

In combination with the Mercedes-Benz Truck Navigation for truck-specific, dynamic route guidance and Live Traffic Information, the Traffic Sign Assist function is available as an option. This information is presented on the primary display.

State-of-the-art driver support through optimum, traffic-dependent route planning. The system, with Mercedes-Benz Truck Navigation for truck-specific, dynamic route guidance and live traffic information, also uses the data from the Traffic Sign Assist system and displays it on the touch display..

For its optimised route planning, the navigation system makes use of precise maps from 49 European countries. Live Traffic Information is currently available in 27 countries. Map updates can be downloaded and installed independently if required.

Convenience telephony, wireless charging.

For easier handling and better voice quality, the new Actros can be equipped with the Convenience Telephony Plus and an inductive charging cradle.

An external telephone aerial and the integrated hands-free set with dual Bluetooth, to which up to two mobile phones can be connected, ensure perfect transmission quality. Wireless charging for smartphones of up to 6 inches (15.2 cm) via the inductive charging cradle

The connected smartphones are operated via the new multifunction steering wheel or alternatively via the Multi-Touch display Of course, connections for charging with cable are also available.

Seats.

Comfort suspension seat.

The air-suspended seat can be adjusted to meet the individual occupant's requirements and provides the best ergonomic basis as well as a great deal of comfort. The integrated seat heating contributes to this comfort. The comfort suspension seat is equipped with pneumatic height adjustment, seat cushion angle and depth adjustment and an integrated headrest with an integrated, height-adjustable 3-point automatic seat belt.

Air-conditioned suspension seat.

The optionally available air-suspended, ventilated driver's suspension seat provides pleasant seating conditions and a high level of comfort. The integral armrests and the seat heating also contribute to this. The active ventilation system in the backrest and cushion of the climatised suspension seat reduces heat and moisture build-up. The numerous individual adjustment options make for optimal ergonomics.
