There is hardly any more important protection for passengers than a well-focused driver. That is why Mercedes-Benz has made every effort to make the driver's workplace in the Tourismo coaches as clear and ergonomic as possible.

The size of the Tourismo is also obvious behind the wheel. It offers two user-friendly cockpits with joystick gearshifts, high-quality finishing and outstanding comfort. Both the Basic Plus Cockpit functional version and the more comfort-oriented Comfort Plus Cockpit version are available. Both versions are characterised by a Basic Key electronic key system. Optionally, the system can be extended to the Standard Key system with remote-controlled central locking.

Tailored equipment: Cockpit Basic Plus.


No time for boredom on even the longest journeys: Cockpit Comfort Plus.

The basic design, including the multifunction steering wheel and state-of-the-art instrument system, is identical in both models. All instruments are clearly arranged and easy to reach without altering the seating position.

The multifunction steering wheel and the high-resolution TFT colour display with intuitive, easy-to-use Stacks and Cards menu make working behind the wheel easier.

The dazzle-free display provides all essential information at a glance and, if desired, can support drivers with additional information such as tour data or fuel consumption. This allows drivers to direct their full attention to the road – a major contribution to increased driving safety. The driver will also find stowage facilities including spacious stowage compartments.

Cockpit Comfort Plus offers the driver even more convenience than the standard configuration. The refrigerator* holds 67 litres, and two more stowage spaces in the centre console keep the cockpit tidy. Beside the exceptionally comfortable driver’s seat** there is a driver’s companion seat, which offers plenty of space near the entry.

The Cockpit Comfort Plus offers the driver even more amenities than with the standard equipment. The refrigerator* now holds 67 litres and two further stowage compartments in the centre console help keep the cockpit tidy. In addition to the highly comfortable bus driver's seat**, there is a new attendant's seat that offers more space and comfort

Spacious, friendly and well equipped. – that's how the new Tourismo welcomes its passengers. The wide doors in the extended front-end and curved handrails facilitate entry, as does the kneeling function, which is already a standard feature of the Tourismo.

Numerous racks and stowage options make for a tidy, spacious interior. The multipanel roof dome blends seamlessly into the luggage shelves at the sides. The spacious feeling is particularly pleasant thanks to the powerful air conditioning system* with fully automated two-zone control. Two separate circuits for heating and climate control ensure a uniform temperature inside the vehicle. Special service sets and optional charging facilities with USB and 230-volt sockets at every seat ensure a pleasant journey and enough power for electronic devices. Also, the onboard galley makes long journeys comfortable.

Depending on the application, the passenger compartment can be equipped with a focus on comfort or functionally. Features include the popular TravelStarEco (TSE) seating, which is available with swivel armrests, lateral adjustment of the side seats, adjustable backrests and footrests. There are also two additional upholstry variants. In the stylish Softline version the configuration options are almost limitless. The Luxline upholstery meets the requirements for maximum comfort.

Whether in classic touring coach applications or for long-distance bus routes: the expectations of passengers are increasing, especially with regard to connectivity and passenger information systems. The Tourismo is a hotspot on wheels: It can be equipped with a Wi-Fi router for a fast Internet connection that allows your passengers to surf the web comfortably while on the move.

For best entertainment, the Coach MediaRouter can also provide a selection of music or films for the passengers. The router also contributes to the safety of the coach: the anti-theft function uses GPS data and sends you an e-mail or SMS with the current position each time the vehicle is switched on and off.
