What's Not To Like?

An uncomplicated, light but durable chassis design; a modern, proven engine - the D9B 9.36 litre; the highly acclaimed, latest generation, smooth and efficient Volvo I-Shift 12-speed fully automated mechanical gearbox; tested components and systems allied to technology B12M and B12B, all united to present a superb mid range coach, ideal for a range of operations.

 

Safety As Standard

Along with Volvo's VR3250 compact retarder offering very powerful auxiliary braking and the anti-lock braking system (ABS) with anti-slip regulation (ASR), Volvo's electronic braking system (EBS) combines with powerful all round disc brakes to give a rapid reaction time and shorter stopping distance.

EBS also encompasses a range of safety and comfort enhancing functions such as Hill Start Aid, Emergency Braking Assistance and Brake Blending, whilst all-round air suspension and roll stabilizers, both front and rear, contribute to a high level of comfort and good road holding.
