For any coach operation

The essence of the Volvo 9700 is flexibility. It can be configured to suit any operation. Even allowing you to alter between weekday schedules and weekend charter. It comes with a choice of two equipment levels and four lengths. Add to that three engine specifications, multiple interior options and a range of smart packages, combining features and services in a new way.

Fuel-efficiency and biofuel

The new 13-litre engine and driveline feature several fuel-saving technologies, helping to reduce fuel consumption by up to 9% compared with the previous engine. A new engine compartment layout with a unique cooling system operated by electrical fans and lower engine revs at cruising speed are two examples. The engine is available in three power levels, from 420 to 500 hp. For improved environmental performance, all of them can run on HVO, and the 460 and 500 hp versions also on biofuel.


A Volvo experience

Legendary comfort and safety are a Volvo hallmark. And the Volvo 9700 is no exception. The new 13-litre engine and driveline improve driving and ride comfort still further. Increased stability, less vibration and less noise make every mile a relaxed experience for both driver and passengers.

Onboard experience

A powerful driver experience

Driving the Volvo 9700 is a sensational experience. Perfectly seated in the new driver compartment, you get that special feeling of control. With the new 500 hp engine and updated I-Shift transmission with even faster gear shifting, you have instant power access already from low revs. Now add our unique Volvo Dynamic Steering. The result is extremely smooth power, smooth gear changes and light steering for comfortable and safe driving.

Passenger experience

The Volvo 9700 comes with several comfortable seat versions. Generous, space-efficient and featuring attractive, durable materials. Overhead, there are spacious luggage racks and user-friendly service sets. Perfect climate completes the relaxing interior. And if you specify a wheelchair lift you have two alternative places for installation.


Travel in Volvo safety

In every Volvo, safety is built-in from the start. The Volvo 9700 is equipped with advanced safety systems that help the driver prevent accidents. And of course, all passenger seats can be equipped with 3-point seat belts. For younger passengers there are ISOFIX fittings for child seats and booster cushions, and we can also offer integrated rearward-facing child seats.
