The different cockpit variants for the Atego are also tailored closely to operational needs. All three are notable for the ergonomic layout of all the controls and a practical array of stowage facilities, with a 320 mm engine tunnel making access easy.
Everything is arranged ergonomically and within the driver's reach. Soft surfaces conjure up a high-class setting. The Mercedes PowerShift 3 automated transmission, for example, is controlled conveniently by means of the right-hand steering-column lever. In the case of the manually shifted Atego, the shift lever is integrated in the instrument support. The equipment includes an ashtray (movable ashtray in vehicles with manual transmission) as well as a cigarette lighter which can also be used as power socket. Additional power sockets for the centre module are available as optional equipment.
With its projecting stowage unit below the instrument support, this optionally available cockpit offers additional space to complement the already generous array of storage facilities. This means that there is a place for everything, even on the longest trips. All the controls are arranged ergonomically within comfortable reach of the driver. Soft surfaces create an ambience of high quality. An environment like this simply makes working and driving more enjoyable.
From the cupholder within reach of the driver to the power socket: everything in the cab is designed to make the job of the driver in the distribution sector easier and more pleasant.
The workplace in the Atego provides a relaxed work environment conducive to good concentration. This is the result of a number of factors: from the comfortable seats and multifunction steering wheel to the on-board computer and ergonomic layout of all the stowage facilities and controls.
All the seats impress with a high level of comfort. The controls are arranged intuitively, the seat cushions are particularly wide and the adjustment range especially large: lengthwise up to 200 mm, height up to 100 mm.
Driver's suspension seat, standard.
The air-suspended seat features a high level of seating comfort, numerous adjustment options and a flat-weave fabric cover.
Air-conditioned suspension seat.
The optionally available air-suspended, ventilated driver's suspension seat provides pleasant seating conditions and a high level of comfort. The integral armrests and the seat heating also contribute to this.

A universal pre-installation for the easy integration of mobile phones, MP3 players or standard navigation systems is optionally available.Voice output is via the vehicle's loudspeakers.
Stowage facilities and compartments.
The stowage design meets the most diverse requirements, making it easier to keep the cab tidy and maintain a high level of organisation and efficiency. The large stowage compartments in the cockpit, on the engine tunnel and in the door panelling are tailored ideally to the items that require to be tidied away.
Stowage compartments - ClassicSpace L-cab.
In addition to the stowage facilities in the cockpit, in the doors and on the engine tunnel, in the ClassicSpace L-cab the compartments above the windscreen and under the bed offer additional stowage space.
