The New Actros - Seven New Core Innovations

Actros truck innovations


Protecting the driver, vehicle and other road users – the Actros L comes with a wide range of safety components as standard equipment. Safety assistants don’t relieve the driver of responsibility, but can effectively support him/her in critical situations. Example Active Brake Assist 51,2,3: Within the system limits, it can automatically initiate maximum full-stop braking for stationary and moving objects in certain situations and is currently the only emergency braking assistant in the truck segment that responds to moving pedestrians at a vehicle speed of up to 50 km/h. There’s also the legally prescribed Lane Keeping Assist1,4 and Stability Control Assist1 as well as other digital aids such as Attention Assist1.

Turning left in an urban location can pose very particular dangers: within the system limits, the optional Active Sideguard Assist1,5,6 can warn the driver in certain situations and initiate automated braking to bring the vehicle to a standstill up to a turning speed of 20 km/h.

What’s more, the enhanced, aerodynamically sophisticated MirrorCam1,7 can make fuel savings of up to 1.3% compared with conventional mirrors and improve visibility in the area of the A-pillars as well as to the rear – especially in difficult lighting conditions. On top of that, the MirrorCam1,5,7 always keeps the relevant field of vision in the driver’s view by digitally shifting the camera image when manoeuvring, turning off and changing lanes.


Comfort enhances driver productivity and helps to combat fatigue. Both are particularly essential for long-haul transport. That is why the new Actros is designed so that concepts such as freedom of movement and atmosphere are given a whole new meaning without losing sight of drivers’ everyday practical work.

Ergonomics and driving comfort

Comfort is more than just luxury. It is our answer to the need for higher standards in long-distance haulage and heavy-duty distribution haulage, providing for pleasant working and driving conditions.

Interior design

Both while driving and during breaks – the interior of the Actros L has everything drivers dream of. Whoever climbs in, notices immediately that this is what a premium workplace in the long-distance haulage sector looks like.

Stowage facilities

Anyone who spends a lot of time on the road needs space of their own. And space for the essentials that are on board during long journeys. This is why the cabs of the Actros L offer particularly spacious interiors with vast amounts of stowage space.

Living and sleeping comfort

With the optional SoloStar Concept and the extremely comfortable beds, the Actros L exhibits an extremely high standard of living and sleeping comfort with all the benefits important to long-distance haulage. The GigaSpace cab also scores points with its new top-quality mattress topper.


The cabs in the Actros L are the perfect answer to virtually any requirement in long-distance haulage. A perfect combination of design and functionality which is also underscored in unique fashion by its striking exterior.


Designed for exceptional economy, in the long-distance transport segment the Actros L stands for reliable, fuel-saving vehicle technology, lower costs and higher returns. In short, increased efficiency. Low fuel consumption is a vital factor in a truck’s cost-effectiveness – an area where the Actros L has proved its worth on a daily basis. And thanks to the third generation OM 471 engine, now even greater savings are possible.

Reduced fuel consumption.

The lower the fuel consumption, the lower the total cost of the truck, particularly in long-distance haulage. With this in mind, we have given our all to reduce fuel consumption as standard on the Actros L.

Low total costs.

Our trucks are especially economical vehicles at your disposal.

High vehicle use.

Intelligent networking of vehicle, Mercedes-Benz Service and your transport company enable vehicle use, vehicle capacity and the efficiency of your logistics processes to be increased noticeably.

Predictive Powertrain Control.

Thanks to the Predictive Powertrain Control, your truck is guaranteed to be even more fuel-efficient in long-haul transport. The system integrates a driving style optimised for the route topography into the automatic transmission. In conjunction with the precisely coordinated shift strategy, this creates fuel savings not just on motorways, but on country roads too.


A one-of-a-kind driving experience.

Thanks to the innovative third generation OM 471 engine, Actros and Arocs offer drivers an unprecedented driving experience – and everyone benefits.
