Tracking-based sliding seat rows for a larger wheelchair space. Simple one-person operation allows up to three rows of seating to slide forward or backward to suit journey requirements.
A standard feature on all Mercedes-Benz Tourismo coaches with factory-fitted wheelchair lift.
A flexible space.
With all three seat rows pushed forward or backward, the wheelchair area at its largest can be a generously sized space. Depending on requirements, the size of this space can be reduced to reinstate another seat row.
Fold out tray tables and footrests remain accessible to passengers wishing to use them.
With consideration for vehicle maintenance, the seat tracking includes clip-in plastic trim inserts. Attached when the seat rows are positioned as desired, they prevent the ingress of dirt into the floor tracking and mitigate additional cleaning duties.
Quick release: a removable pin and pull-handle mechanism.
A one-person operation. Removal of the safety pin while pulling the retractable red handle unlocks the seat row from its existing position. Now, in an easy-slide fashion, the seat row can be moved by hand in either direction and re-locked in its new position anywhere along the tracking.
It is still possible to remove one or more seat rows entirely from the vehicle. However, this task would require more than one person.
