15-metre long MultiClass 400 variant with 69 seats
With a length of 14.98 metres, the S 419 UL is the longest variant in the MultiClass 400 series. Its 69 seats make it a true large-capacity vehicle that impressively demonstrates how a high level of quality, flexibility and economy can also be achieved in the inter-urban bus segment. Generously sized luggage compartments, comfortable seats and a wide choice of appointments make the S 419 UL ideal for combined regular service and touring operations.
The test vehicle has a straight front end and is equipped with the Mercedes-Benz OM 457 hLA engine developing 300 kW (408 hp) plus the servo-assisted Mercedes-Benz GO 210 six-speed manual transmission, and already meets the Euro 5 emission standard coming into force in the autumn.
Other features include a roof-mounted 35 kW air conditioner with automatic climate control and cockpit climatisation, as well as fire alarm systems in the engine and luggage compartments. The 69 individual "Tourist" seats are fitted with grab handles, a rigid backrest and a 2-point seat belt. There is a pushchair space with a removable platform opposite the rear entry door. The interior standing height of the S 419 UL is 2170 mm.
