Also astounding are the exemplary safety features of the Intouro hybrid. As a true Mercedes-Benz, the new Intouro offers a hitherto unparalleled level of safety in its sector. The key focus here is accident avoidance. Of particular note is the unique emergency braking assistant, Active Brake Assist 5 (ABA 5), a further milestone celebrating its début in the Intouro. For the first time, ABA works with a combination of radar and camera systems. The assistance system, available on request, can execute an automatic full brake to standstill, within the system limits, when mobile and stationary obstacles are detected. As the world’s first emergency braking assistant for buses and coaches, ABA 5 can also execute full braking when a moving person is detected ahead. Further assistance systems, such as Sideguard Assist (for turning), are also available.
