A diverse range of vehicle systems and functions can be operated and information called up by swiping and pressing the Touch Control Buttons. The Touch Control Button on the right-hand side serves to operate the primary display (instrument cluster), while the Touch Control Button on the left is used for the secondary Multi-Touch-Display.
Leather steering wheel.
The leather steering wheel with a diameter of 450 mm increases comfort and also contributes to an individual, homely atmosphere. Leather, a natural material, quickly compensates major temperature differences. The insert and the multifunction buttons are available in two versions: black grained and silver shadow chrome. In the area of the spokes, the leather is perforated.
With the high-quality remote control key, the vehicle can be conveniently opened or locked from a distance of up to 50 metres. The radio remote control features direction-independent operation and does not therefore need to be aimed directly at the vehicle.
To start the vehicle, the key does not need to be inserted but must simply be in the vehicle or within a maximum radius of two metres around the start-stop button. The engine is switched off by pressing the start-stop button. A surface-mounted, chrome-plated Mercedes star ensures an attractive appearance of the key.
The driver's and co-driver's doors can be locked and unlocked by radio remote control. The driver's and co-driver's doors can still be conveniently locked and unlocked from the inside using the manual switch in the doors. With the comfort opening/closing system, the side windows and sliding sunroof are operated by means of the remote control. A receiver in the dashboard console converts the radio commands accordingly and controls the locking system.
Convenience central locking system.
In conjunction with the new convenience key, the locking system increases operating convenience and security of vehicle locking.
In addition to the legally required light check, the driver's and co-driver's doors, the side windows and the sliding sunroof can be conveniently opened and closed, or unlocked and locked, by pressing a button on the convenience key using radio remote control.
Engine start/stop button.
Parking brake, electronic with hold function.
The new, electronic parking brake with HOLD function combines simpler handling, greater comfort and a high level of safety.
The electronic parking brake is automatically released when driving off in transmission position "D" or "R" and automatically engaged when the engine or ignition is switched off. The integrated HOLD function is activated when the vehicle is stationary – at a red light, for example – simply by depressing the brake pedal with greater force. The function is released once the accelerator pedal is operated again.
Remote online & Remote Truck App244.
Remote Online makes it possible to connect a mobile device, such as the driver's smartphone, to the vehicle's own network.
With the associated Remote Truck app, the driver can check or control a wide variety of vehicle functions from a distance of up to 25 metres. From fuel level, tyre pressure to radio settings and interior lighting.
Radio infotainment system262.
The new Actros comes as standard with an integrated radio infotainment system that conjures up a whole new feeling in the cab. A digital radio featuring Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) is also optionally available. Numerous connection options are available for integrating external devices.
Thanks to the digital receiver, terrestrial digital DAB and DAB+ programmes can also be received in addition to conventional radio programmes. Therefore, depending on the country, a large selection of other stations in CD quality is available. Other advantages include excellent reception characteristics and valuable additional information, for example on the radio programme.
Multimedia Radio Touch.
The Multimedia Radio Touch with its 17.7 cm colour display can be operated intuitively via the touchscreen and offers numerous convenience features. These include the Bluetooth interface for hands-free calling and audio streaming, as well as convenient access to smartphone content via Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink.
First-class sound and optimum surround sound in the cab. The sound system is made up of 7 + 1 speakers and offers a consummate sound experience in Dolby Digital 5.1 format as well as a full-sounding playback in the bass range, starting at a frequency of 20 Hz. In comparison to the standard broadband speakers, the bass/mid-range speakers deliver optimised treble and bass reproduction.
The speakers are arranged as follows: one tweeter in each of the A-pillars, one bass/mid-range speaker (160 mm) in each of the doors, one broadband speaker (100 mm) in each of the side walls above the bed, a central speaker (100 mm) in the stowage compartment above the windscreen and one active subwoofer (100 Watt) in a 20-litre bass reflex speaker in the left-hand stowage compartment.
The speakers of the sound system have been specially tuned to one another and are only available in conjunction with the Multimedia Cockpit (J6B) or Multimedia Cockpit, interactive (J6C) and are only available for L-cabs with a level floor (F1F/F1H/F1I/F1J).
Navigation system and Traffic Sign Assist244, 262.
In combination with the Mercedes-Benz Truck Navigation for truck-specific, dynamic route guidance and Live Traffic Information, the Traffic Sign Assist function is available as an option. This information is presented on the primary display.
State-of-the-art driver support through optimum, traffic-dependent route planning. The system, with Mercedes-Benz Truck Navigation for truck-specific, dynamic route guidance and live traffic information, also uses the data from the Traffic Sign Assist system and displays it on the touch display.
For its optimised route planning, the navigation system makes use of precise maps from 49 European countries. Live Traffic Information is currently available in 27 countries. Map updates can be downloaded and installed independently if required.
Convenience telephony, wireless charging.
For easier handling and better voice quality, the new Actros can be equipped with the Convenience Telephony Plus and a mobile phone cradle.
An external telephone aerial and the integrated hands-free set with dual Bluetooth, to which up to two mobile phones can be connected, ensure perfect transmission quality. Wireless charging for smartphones of up to 6 inches (15.2 cm) via the mobile phone cradle.
The connected smartphones are operated via the new multifunction steering wheel or alternatively via the multi-touch display. Connections for charging with a cable are, of course, also present.
Interactive operating instructions.
Detailed interactive operating instructions are available online as a source of comprehensive information for users and any other interested parties, with descriptions, images and videos. It is also possible to download the instructions as a PDF file.
Comfort suspension seat.
The air-suspended seat can be adjusted to meet the individual occupant's requirements and provides the best ergonomic basis as well as a great deal of comfort. The integrated seat heating contributes to this comfort. The comfort suspension seat is equipped with pneumatic height adjustment, seat cushion angle and depth adjustment and an integrated headrest with an integrated, height-adjustable 3-point automatic seat belt.
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. The active ventilation system in the backrest and cushion of the climatised suspension seat reduces heat and moisture build-up. The numerous individual adjustment options make for optimal ergonomics.
