Vehicle profile: Mercedes-Benz Tourismo 15 RHD

Equipment (excerpt): The show vehicle underscores the versatility of the Tourismo: on the one hand, the two-axle high-decker Tourismo 15 RHD in French specification takes on missions as a long-distance touring coach. On the other, with its passenger information system and its LED school bus signs at the front and rear it is also predestined as a day-in, day-out workhorse. A typical feature for the French market is that the bus is equipped with a lavatory but does not have a galley.
The Tourismo is painted brilliant silver. The wheel trim is also finished in silver. On both sides pantograph locker doors with lifting mechanisms provide access to the luggage compartment. Despite all the functionality of this Tourismo the 49 Travel Star Xtra passenger seats with Luxline upholstery and a leather head section are very comfortable. The entertainment features include a DVD player with a 48.26 cm (19-inch) screen in the front end above the centre entrance.
The safety equipment of the model is impressive. As is standard for every touring coach from Mercedes-Benz, the bus is equipped with the Electronic Stability Program ESP including acceleration skid control (ASR) and Brake Assist (BA). Furthermore, this high-decker is equipped with an alcohol interlock system, a tyre pressure monitoring system and a fire extinguishing system in the engine compartment. A reversing camera facilitates manoeuvring.
The bus is powered by the new in-line six-cylinder Mercedes-Benz OM 470 engine, here with a power output of 290 kW (394 hp). The power is transmitted by a six-speed manual gearbox.
