The new class of handling

Time, load and vehicle – all under control

In developing the new Antos we did everything to make your daily job in heavy-duty distribution transport more convenient. The result:a comfortable, practical work environment, a dynamic drive system with fast response times and impressively good handling performance.

The Antos was developed specifically for distribution transport – to ensure you'll master the steadily increasing challenges in day-to-day operations faster, more conveniently and easier than ever before. The newly developed S cab ClassicSpace, M cab ClassicSpace and M cab CompactSpace, each available with an engine tunnel height of 170 mm or 320 mm, offer the ideal conditions to do so. Because they are geared strictly to each respective type of operations and as a result offer an excellent balance of body length, payload and a comfortable, functional work environment. The uniform width of 2300 mm provides the best possible visibility and the low, stair-type entrance spares the driver's stamina. Once in the truck, the newly developed comfortable driver's seat and the asymmetric driver-oriented cockpit immediately impart a sense of confidence. Sophisticated ergonomics, intuitive operability and practical stowage areas and compartments create a harmonious overall concept that makes work much easier.

Noticeably better handlingOn every trip

The quick-response dynamic drive system of the new Antos is convincing from the very start as well. In conjunction with the standard-specification Mercedes PowerShift 3 automatic gearshift as well as transmissions and final-drive ratios tailored to the specific types of operations, the high-torque standard-specification Euro VI engines provide a dynamic spirit you can feel and economical driving fun in virtually any driving situation.

In addition, the perfect interaction of the very direct and particularly sensitive steering, the wide frame optimised for distribution transport, the new four-bellows air suspension and the innovative rear axle guide provide a uniquely safe and sound driving sensation. Just as much on a country road as in the city or when manoeuvring. Furthermore, a wide variety of safety and assistance systems such as for example Active Brake Assist 3* or Attention Assist** relieve the burden on the driver in stressful situations. For noticeably better handling.On every trip.
