Thanks to its innovative vehicle technology, the Tourismo K and the Tourismo RH ensure good balance sheets and frugal fuel consumption. The BlueEFFICIENCY Power engine generation with BlueTEC 6 offers a compellingly high environmental compatibility, but high profitability as well. Despite the more demanding requirements, the engineers have succeeded in keeping fuel consumption to its accustomed low level. The Mercedes-Benz transmissions further ensure low consumption: power is transferred either by a six-speed manual transmission with convenient joystick gearshift in the cockpit or the automated eight-speed Mercedes GO 250-8 PowerShift transmission.
Add to this the sophisticated RO 440 bus drive axle: it is particularly lightweight, operates quietly with optimised gearing and higher efficiency due to lower churning losses due to the oil in the axle. With an integrated water retarder, your bus will continue to save energy. The secondary retarder uses the engine cooling water as a braking and cooling medium, eliminating the need for an oil/water heat exchanger. And the Tourismo remains on the road with long maintenance intervals of up to 120,000 kilometres.
