You can expect a great deal from the Atego: excellent handling, ease of body mounting and overall efficiency. This all adds up to just about everything you need, and right from your first trip, you won't want to do without any of these assets.
Ticks all the boxes for the job.
The Atego imparts a very good, self-assured feeling behind the wheel. This stems from Stability Control Assist, the cab mountings, the steering, the rear axle guide and the suspension, all of which work together in exemplary fashion.
The Atego's sensitive steering provides for simple, exact handling during manoeuvring, while at high speeds it ensures reliable straight-line and high directional stability along with a correspondingly reduced need for corrective steering.

The Atego is equipped with weight-optimised single- or multi-leaf parabolic springs. For enhanced ride comfort, it is also available with rear-air suspension. Ategos rated at 12 t or over are also optionally available with full pneumatic suspension.
Cab suspension system, reinforced at rear.
The optionally available cab suspension system with reinforced rear coil springs enhances suspension comfort for steel-sprung cabs when the cab is fitted out with a seat/bunk combination, for example.
Rear axle guide.
For superior handling, air-sprung Ategos up to 10.5 t and 12 t with low frame as well as all Ategos with steel suspension are fitted with a rear-axle guide that reduces roll understeer.
Stabiliser, rear axle.
The robust stabiliser reduces vehicle roll and thus offers greater safety and comfort. It is situated under the frame at the rear axle.
Air-suspended front axle.
An air-sprung front axle (which is available for the Atego rated at 12 t and over) enhances ride comfort, as the vehicle is levelled automatically when carrying an uneven load. It is also adjustable to assist loading/unloading.
Good body-mounting capability.
The optimised layout of all components on the frame and availability of factory fitted pre-installations help streamline the bodybuilding process. Additionally, vehicle integration is improved by the parameterisable special module, which simplifies connection options to the vehicle.
Parameterisable special module.
The optionally available parameterisable special module (PSM) provides excellent information processing and a smooth exchange of information between vehicle and body.
