Aerodynamics

Right from the start and during the entire period of use.

The design of the new Actros has been optimised right down to the finest details in order to reduce wind resistance. Engineers even developed a special cab variant with aerodynamically-optimised design and therefore low fuel consumption: the StreamSpace cab. Features such as the door extensions and aerodynamic wind deflectors1) also save fuel.”

When designing the new Actros we tested every individual part extensively - in the wind tunnel and on many million miles of test routes – for minimal drag and low fuel consumption.
