The ultimate power pack

The driveline with Volvo’s 13-litre diesel engine will take you all the way. 420 or 460 bhp

in Euro 5 and EEV configuration with a massive torque of 2100 or 2300 Nm is perfectly matched by the Volvo I-Shift transmission and Volvo’s single-reduction rear axle. The benefits are Volvo hallmarks: first-class driveability, outstanding fuel efficiency and low environmental impact.


Volvo I-Shift

Volvo’s legendary I-Shift transmission combines smooth and silent shifting with fuel efficiency and lets the engine run under optimised conditions.



Powerful, EBS-controlled disc brakes are well-known Volvo safety components. For top-of-the-line safety you can opt for a retarder and our Electronic Stability Program (ESP).


Front suspension

Rigid or individual front suspension is available, offering excellent comfort and handling as well as a tight turning circle.



Automatic function check

The multiplexed electronics system keeps track of the basic functions. All safety features are automatically checked at every start-up.

Driver’s environment

Volvo means world-class ergonomics. Comfortable, clear instrumentation and logical control panels help the driver stay alert, focused and in control of the coach.


Trouble-free maintenance

The B13R is designed for long service intervals and swift and simple maintenance. Oil change intervals are extended and many critical components are maintenance-free. In addition, Volvo’s multiplexed electronics system functions as a preventive maintenance and diagnostics tool.


Simple service

With Volvo, service and maintenance are simple matters. All service points are easily reached and, thanks to component sharing within the Volvo family, your spare parts logistics is simplified. You also benefit from our extensive service network, which we share with Volvo Trucks.
