New standards for trucks in long-haul transport: the Actros.
A star for long-haul transport: The Actros.
A truck ahead of its time. The Actros is meeting the constantly increasing demands of long haul transport. Whatever your priority may be – whether it be economy, comfort, safety of reliability – the Actros is guaranteed to deliver.
The Actros at a glance.
- Greater safety - This is the second pillar of RoadEfficiency and an attribute of our trucks to which the Actros attaches even greater emphasis.
- Comfort - Work better, drive better, live better - the new Actros shows how.
- Efficiency - The Actros stands for reliable, fuel-saving vehicle technology, lower costs and higher profitability. In short: greater efficiency.
- Reliability - During the construction of our trucks, we always use the strictest quality standards: Real-life requirements. Or in short: Your requirements.
In place of the conventional rear-view mirrors, the Actros is fitted with the innovative, aerodynamically refined MirrorCam*. This saves fuel and offers improved visibility to the rear and in the area of the A-pillar.
MirrorCam* also provides for added safety during manoeuvring, turning off and changing lanes, for example by panning** the camera image in accordance with the vehicle’s movements. As an alternative to the MirrorCam2,6,10, a classic mirror system is also available.
*Within system limits and in certain situations, assistance systems can assist the driver in the driving task. However, the responsibility for driving the vehicle safely remains entirely with the driver. Optional equipment. Not for vehicles with the ADR categories EX111, FL.
**Only with CAN-equipped trailers.
Active Brake Assist 5
Our trucks put safety first. That’s why Active Brake Assist 5* comes as part of the standard equipment. It assists drivers* in certain situations by initiating a full application of the brakes if stationary and moving objects are detected. It can also initiate a partial or full application of the brakes in response to moving pedestrians being detected – thus reducing the consequences of an accident or completely preventing one from happening in the first place.
*Standard for vehicles where an advanced emergency braking system is a legal requirement. Within system limits and in certain situations, assistance systems can assist the driver in the driving task. However, the responsibility for driving the vehicle safely remains entirely with the driver.
Active Sideguard Assist
The Active Sideguard Assist* can assist the driver when turning or changing lanes by detecting moving and stationary objects in the warning zone on the right or in the tracking pattern in certain situations** and providing visual and audible warnings for the driver.
The system can also contribute to a reduction in the severity of accidents within the system limits by means of automated braking to standstill. In ideal situations, it can even prevent accidents altogether.
*Within system limits and in certain situations, assistance systems can assist the driver in the driving task. However, the responsibility for driving the vehicle safely remains entirely with the driver. Optional equipment. In conjunction with three-part wing.
**Within the system’s limits. Under optimal conditions.
Active Drive Assist 2
Active Drive Assist 2* is available for certain Actros models and assists the driver not only in maintaining as safe a distance as possible to the vehicle travelling in front, but also in staying in the middle of the lane. Particularly on long, monotonous stretches of road, it therefore offers greater safety as well as stress-relieving comfort and can better driver-fitness safety.
The new features of Active Drive Assist 2* make a major contribution to road safety. If the driver does not hold the steering wheel for a prolonged period of time, either by choosing to ignore legislation or as a result of becoming unwell, a warning cascade starts and within the system’s limits, it can even decelerate the vehicle staying within its current lane down to a standstill if the driver fails to react.
Active Drive Assist 2* extends the functionality of Proximity Control Assist**. In addition to automatic distance control with stop-and-go function, it can also actively help the driver to stay in lane. To do this, it combines the enhanced radar and camera technologies of Active Brake Assist 5* with the electrically assisted steering and Lane Keeping Assist***.
*Within system limits and in certain situations, assistance systems can assist the driver in the driving task. However, the responsibility for driving the vehicle safely remains entirely with the driver. Special equipment, only for certain vehicle configurations. Special equipment, only in conjunction with Servotwin steering, Proximity Control Assist, Active Brake Assist 5, Stability Control Assist and Multimedia Cockpit/Multimedia Cockpit, interactive.
**Within system limits and in certain situations, assistance systems can assist the driver in the driving task. However, the responsibility for driving the vehicle safely remains entirely with the driver. Optional extra, only in conjunction with Active Brake Assist 5.

For a high level of driving, working and operating convenience, the Actros is equipped with the innovative Multimedia Cockpit*. A high-resolution 26 cm (10.25-inch) colour display replaces the conventional instrument cluster and provides a clear display of all driving and vehicle information. It is supplemented by the Multi-Touch Display in the same size in the instrument panel on the right.
*Optional item for S- and M-cabs.
Multimedia Cockpit, interactive*
The Multimedia Cockpit, interactive* is an expansion of the Multimedia Cockpit. The primary display has a size of 30.5 cm (12.3 inches) and permits a choice between two screen designs. It also includes a navigation system, Traffic Sign Assist and Remote Online for the control of various vehicle functions via the smartphone.
Also integrated is Remote Connect for storage volume and access to the Fleetboard Store, which offers many convenience- and efficiency-enhancing apps for the Multi-Touch display.
*Standard for L-cabs, otherwise optional extra.
If you travel long distances in a truck you need enough storage space and freedom of movement. This is why Actros cabs offer particularly spacious interiors – with plenty of space for your personal freedom of movement.
Beyond the extensive scope of stowage facilities which comes as standard, additional stowage compartments* are available to make individual and efficient use of the available space.
*Depending on cab variant.
Predictive Powertrain Control
Save fuel when driving – with Predictive Powertrain Control.
A means of saving even more fuel with your truck, now as standard equipment. On motorways as well as on A and B roads.
The system integrates a driving style optimised for the route topography into the operating mode of the automatic transmission and, in conjunction with the precisely coordinated shift strategy, allows fuel savings of up to 5% to be achieved. The new extended functions of Predictive Powertrain Control now enable use of the system’s benefits on A and B roads, too. In addition to the satellite-based positioning system and precise 3D maps, Predictive Powertrain Control also uses the Traffic Sign Assist feature.
With Mercedes-Benz Uptime* we are pursuing a clear objective: to permanently minimise unscheduled vehicle downtime and to make repairs predictable resulting in increased vehicle availability.
*Can be combined with all Fleetboard services. Fitted as standard with option to deselect.
