With the Unimog, not only are its users safe on the road, but also other road users. The most important features are: outstanding visibility to the front thanks to the short front-end assembly; directional stability; ABS; precision steering; optimum axle load distribution; and the workplace with three-point seat belt and head restraint, which is mounted in such a way as to ensure minimal vibrations. The exterior design with its short front-end and very wide field of vision over both the driving and working areas make the Unimog a particularly safe commercial vehicle. The windscreen wiper system is mounted above the windscreen and optimises the cleaning of the windscreen, especially in the case of winter service work. What's more, the headlamps featuring daytime driving lights not only help Unimog users to see better, but also to be seen better. The optional front-end camera and monitoring system also improves vision in the immediate vicinity of the vehicle and makes the mounting of implements easier at the front.
The front-end dimensions and the position of the driver are especially important when working with front-mounted implements. The Unimog falls well below the legally prescribed limit of 3.5 m in Germany, even with implements installed.
Its balanced axle load ratio is particularly helpful to the Unimog when cornering on slippery road surfaces.
