Variety is the trump card for Mercedes-Benz Citaro inter-urban buses. With 5 models in 3 model series and countless equipment options, the Ü inter-urban bus family has a suitable vehicle for almost all requirements.
No matter what route: The right Citaro inter-urban bus is ready to go.
The Citaro Ü.
Charming celebrity with economic benefits.
Quality, flexibility and comfort - and above all overall economy. With these convincing arguments, the Citaro Ü is the ideal solution for overland connections to the urban network.
The face of the Citaro Ü with its large headlamps and curved windscreen radiates sympathy and friendliness. The low-mounted windows stand for transparency; distinctive wheel housings underscore the dynamic performance. The rear of the Citaro is also dominated by curves, and radiates modernity with its styling. The economic use of space also impresses in terms of functionality as well as design. The vehicle shows itself as an ambassador for attractive public transport: a positive image which will reflect well on your company whilst also ensuring a healthy bottom line.
Swift turnover guaranteed.
Comfortable low access height and convenient low-floor design ensure fast boarding and alighting and thus excellent passenger flow. Thanks to the folding ramp, strollers and people with restricted mobility also have easy access in the Citaro Ü inter-urban bus.
A true top performer.
Your passengers enjoy the bright and spacious interior as well as the high-quality equipment of the Citaro Ü inter-urban bus. You yourself benefits from the high passenger carrying capacity. This means that even heavily frequented peripheral lines can be operated with confidence. And because the Citaro Ü has spacious luggage racks, it is also the ideal solution for city tours, excursions or as a shuttle bus. However, the Citaro Ü is not only an economically-effective inter-urban bus, it also generates new income: Advertising spaces on the outer ceiling flaps and the driver's partition offer you an additional source of income.
One of the most agile in its class.
Thanks to independent wheel suspension on the front axle, the turning circle of the 12-metre solo wagon is just 21.21 metres. For you this means: highest manoeuvrability and maximum driving safety even in difficult situations. This is supported by an excellent suspension that ensures smooth running and maximum driving comfort.
Economic efficiency meets driving dynamics.
The Citaro Ü is equipped as standard with the compact OM 936 h in-line six-cylinder engine in Euro VI version. With its powerful 220- or 260-kW engine, not only will you get moving quickly, you will also be doing so frugally. And while its dynamism will make your driver's heart beat faster, its economic operations make it even more valuable to your fleet.
The Citaro LE Ü.
A clever connection.
The Citaro LE Ü is the uncompromising extension of the Mercedes-Benz Citaro inter-urban bus model range: By an intelligent combination of the strengths of low-floor and high-floor vehicles, it provides additional scope in your fleet.
The special feature is the combination.
A real low-floor bus as far back as the second door and then a high-floor bus to the rear of the bus: The Citaro LE Ü inter-urban bus combines comfortable low-floor design with economical high-floor technology. This makes it a real asset for your fleet. As you can use the Citaro LE Ü very flexibly, it allows you to fully exploit its potential. Not only in inter-urban traffic, but also on short excursions at any time.
Versatility in three varieties.
Like all the vehicles in the Citaro family, the Citaro LE Ü is also equipped with economical, low-emission Euro VI engines. Protects the environment and your budget. The flexible multi-income earner is available in several variants in line with your wishes and requirements. Besides the 12.20 meter long Citaro LE Ü, the Citaro LE MÜ is one meter longer and offers more space for up to six people. Whereas the Citaro LE Ü has as standard two entrance doors, the Citaro LE MÜ is available as a 2- or 3-door model.
As the engine can be installed vertically in the rear thanks to the high-floor design, the Citaro LE Ü offers more seats and a higher passenger capacity than comparable low-floor vehicles. In this respect, too, it is helping to achieve economic goals.
High-tech to optimise torque.
The 260-kW OM 936 h engine variant is equipped with the Power Boost System (PBS). It shortens the torque build-up in the lower engine speed range by injecting compressed air. This is how the compact engine convinces with the starting characteristics of a large-volume engine.
Low Entry: Passenger-friendly and economical.
Low Entry means: These buses feature a low-floor design from the front section up to and including the centre entrance, and a raised floor behind the centre entrance (2nd door). This "composite design principle" provides a high level of passenger comfort, including for passengers with restricted mobility. You also benefit from the uncomplicated and maintenance-friendly location of the assemblies in the rear area.
Your passengers will be delighted with the clear, spacious interior and the comfortable suspension of the Citaro LE Ü. The overland seats, which are arranged uniformly in the rear area in the direction of travel, offer pleasant seating comfort also for extended journeys. The access in the rear area is also extremely easily accessible thanks to the two low steps, as well as providing good passenger flow.
Typical Mercedes‑Benz look.
With its unmistakable, modern design, the Citaro LE Ü is recognisable from afar as a genuine Mercedes-Benz and an image carrier for your transport provider or bus company. The smooth, well-proportioned sides with harmonious transition to the roof and the rear with dynamic lines create a convincing overall impression.
The Citaro GÜ.
Consummate expertise in inter-urban transport.
The Citaro GÜ is the logical extension of what constitutes economical and reliable inter-urban transport. Designed for high passenger capacities. Made for your business.
True greatness comes from within.
Handling large numbers of passengers is the area of competence of the 18.12 m long Citaro GÜ. Up to 128 passengers will find ample space. Continuous low-floor design from the first to the last row of seats ensures high comfort and enables fast passenger flow. The comfortable, robust overland seats and the flexible handrail system are also designed to meet the demands of modern transportation businesses.
A spacious wonder with unique curve technology.
Unique ATC safety technology.
Front and rear carriage of the Citaro GÜ are joined by a tried-and tested low-floor articulation. The maximum articulation angle is 54 degrees. The ATC (Articulation Turntable Controller) developed by Mercedes-Benz sets a new standard for driving dynamics and safety. It controls the hydraulic damping of the articulation demand-oriented, depending, among other things, on steering angle, angle, speed and load. The result is convincing: While the conventional damping of the articulation leads to strong tendency to understeer in curves and higher tyre wear, the articulation of the Citaro GÜ is almost free in a normal stable driving situation. Damping is only through the friction of the component elements.
Comfortable and agile.
Despite its length, the Citaro GÜ can also be manoeuvred safely in dynamic situations. The driver can even manoeuvre comfortably in reverse gear, too. This is aided by the independent wheel suspension on the front axle. It makes the Citaro GÜ one of the most manoeuvrable in its class.
Great overall economy.
In terms of cost-per-passenger, the Citaro GÜ results in particularly favourable acquisition and operating costs. This makes it a highly economical solution for lines with high passenger volumes.
Capacity plus quality equals economic efficiency.
With the Citaro GÜ you benefit not only from its considerable transport capacity on heavily frequented peripheral lines, but above all from its high reliability. The Citaro GÜ is manufactured from the proven, high-quality components of the Citaro modular system and displays its compelling quality right down to the last detail. Add to this the particularly frugal Euro VI engines with 26 kW and 290 kW (OM 470). Their efficient, clean fuel burning process means they will soon pay off for you. In addition, the outstanding ease of maintenance of the Citaro GÜ significantly reduces downtimes. All in all this leads to an outstanding sustainable overall economy.
