Luxury double-deck bus arrives
The Setra bus brand has just unveiled this new addition to their range – the Setra S 531 DT double-decker touring coach.
The German bus manufacturer, a division of Daimler-AG, tell us their new offering boasts supreme comfort and the ultimate in safety.
Those safety credentials include a first for the bus and coach industry – Active Brake Assist 4 and Sideguard Assist.
Safety systems like these are normally found on Mercedes-Benz trucks.
Setra say they have also made the new bus significantly more aerodynamic than the model it replaces.
The S 531 DT boasts a drag co-efficiency of just 0.35, this helps reduce fuel consumption by up to 10% over that superseded model.
While the luxury interior can be kept fresh by way of an optional fragrance dispensing system, as found in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class passenger car, that delivers a “discreet and unobtrusive yet highly pleasing scent”.
No word yet on whether we will see this new bus in Australia, Setra currently only sells buses and coaches in Europe and North America, we will keep you updated though as any further info comes to hand.
