Arrive safely – with the support of innovative assistance systems to improve driving safety which actively relieve the strain on the driver and treat the vehicle and the load with sufficient care, thereby contributing to higher efficiency. On every journey.
Safety is at the root of our DNA.
Trucks that are very safe are not just an important development for all road users. They are also more efficient, because they are less often put out of action by accidents and they relieve the driver's workload. This is why we have been focusing for over 45 years now on developing innovative assistance systems.

Further Assistance systems.
Trailer Stability Assist2.
This system enhances driving safety by performing preventive braking of the vehicle and trailer in exceptional driving situations, thereby stabilising the truck and trailer combination.
High Performance Engine Brake.
The three-stage, wear-free auxiliary brake is optionally available for even greater safety, offering up to 300 kW of braking power depending on the installed engine variant.
Lane Keeping Assist.
Lane Keeping Assist continuously monitors the distance between the sides of the vehicle and the lane markings and warns the driver when the vehicle is unintentionally drifting out of its lane.
Stability Control Assist.
Stability Control Assist identifies situations such as skidding or swerving and counteracts them as far as physically possible. This can prevent dangerous driving situations, thus enhancing safety.
The optionally available LED daytime running lamps help to improve recognition of the vehicle during the daytime for enhanced safety. LED clearance lamps and LED tail lamps are also optionally available.
 Available as standard from 9.5t.
 Only in conjunction with trailer with ABS/EBS.
