Standard may be attractive! In line with the brand's claim, this intercity bus points the way in terms of engineering and design. Compelling proportions and forward-thrusting dynamics underline its singularly expressive appearance to form a smooth, cW-optimized bus silhouette. The flexible concept as a modular system allows for deployment all week long. A variety of special features is available to turn the bright interior into anything from a school bus to a scheduled-service bus in which driver and passengers alike can enjoy an attractive yet very functional atmosphere. Ergonomically designed, the driver's workplace is clearly structured.

This MAN combi coach is a testament to the fact that it’s possible to solve straightforward design tasks in fantastic ways. The jury was impressed by the coach’s timeless design, its clear lines and balanced proportions. Each detail has been perfectly thought through: the interior matches the exterior and vice versa, windows and doors are beautifully integrated and the color scheme, the materiality and the surfaces are perfectly designed. All that combined makes this coach a modern, timeless vehicle.
