New at the IAA: Mercedes Actros Edition Black Liner and White Liner


The Actros Edition Black Liner and White Liner is the most exclusive and attractive form of star-branded long-distance truck. On the outside perfectly attired, from the metallic paintwork to the decorative stripe, and inside perfectly equipped, from special leather seats to Active Brake Assist, the new Mercedes-Benz Actros Edition showcases the brand.

Actros Edition exterior: a superlative truck
Take a look at the exterior of the Actros Edition, and it is immediately clear that this is a superlative truck: available with diamond white (Actros White Liner) or obsidian black (Actros Black Liner) paintwork, each cab features a broad, vertical double stripe in elegant grey. The distinctive look is underlined by exterior mirror trim with chrome details (Actros Black Liner) or painted in white (Actros White Liner), steps in stainless steel (Actros Black Liner) or with a black paint finish (Actros White Liner), headlamp trim in black (Actros White Liner) or chrome (Actros Black Liner), LED daytime driving lights and LED position lights. The Edition lettering and the door emblem emphasise the special character of the Actros Edition. (The Actros White Liner also has steel wheels with a black paint finish.)

Actros Edition interior: a driver’s dream
The interior proves to be a genuine driver’s dream. The brown climate-controlled leather seats and leather door panels with special topstitching, the leather steering wheel and leather armrests create an exclusive atmosphere. Other leather features include the centre floor mat and the mat in the open stowage tray on top of the instrument panel. The trim on the instrument support and the ventilation outlets is in matt black fine wood. Brown velour floor mats round off the overall impression of comfort and exclusivity.

Further standard equipment with air horns, illuminated star logo, sun visor, electric tilting/sliding sunroof, electrically operated sunblinds for the windscreen, automatic climate control, ambient lighting and coolbox combine comfort, function and looks to optimum effect. The Actros Edition can be fitted with silver-coloured or black painted aluminium wheels.

Safety and cost-effectiveness as standard
Safety and cost-effectiveness are other factors which are not in short supply when it comes to the Actros Edition. The already extensive standard equipment for the Actros is enhanced in the Actros Edition Black Liner and White Liner with features such as Active Brake Assist 2 (also known as emergency braking assist) which also recognises stationary obstacles, Lane Assistant, stability control, and the driver’s airbag. Retarder and proximity control are available as an option. Air deflectors with cab-side extenders and aerodynamic side trim panels further lower the already favourable fuel consumption. A pre-installation for the FleetBoard telematics is also already on board.

Mercedes-Benz delivers the Actros Edition Black Liner and White Liner in conjunction with L-cab and Megaspace cab and all engine variants. The number of trucks being produced is as exclusive as the equipment: the Edition is limited to 500 vehicles.

The Mercedes-Benz Actros Edition will make its debut at the IAA Commercial Vehicles in Hannover at the end of September.
