Regular service operations during the week and the ideal vehicle for excursions at the weekend: the MultiClass 400 impresses with outstanding flexibility and economy. A total of seven models are available to bus operators in this Setra product segment.
With a length of only 10.80 metres the S 412 UL is the most "manoeuvrable", and was specially designed for regular service with 45 "Transit" seats from in-house production. Thanks to its compact length, it is ideally suited to cost-effective regular service operations in topographically difficult regions with steep and narrow mountain roads. The other models in the MultiClass 400 are the 12.20-metre long S 415 UL, the S 417 UL with a length of 14.05 metres and the S 419 UL measuring 14.98 metres. Generously sized luggage compartments, comfortable seats and a wide variety of available interior features, e.g. a kitchen, toilet and air conditioning, make these vehicles ideal for combining regular service with touring operations.
And if low-floor operation is required, the entry heights in the twelve-metre long S 415 NF and 13-metre S 416 NF are only 360 mm when size 11 R 22.5 tyres are used all-round, leading directly into the level interior. Two vehicles tailor-made for regular service with a high passenger throughput and enormous practicality. Features available include innovative door systems, cockpit variants, different destination displays and a wide variety of seating options.
The latest product is the S 416 UL, which makes the MultiClass 400 product range even more versatile with a new vehicle length. The wheelbase of the 13.04-metre long S 416 UL was extended to 6920 mm versus the S 415 UL (6080 mm).
This creates space for an even larger luggage capacity of 5.5 cu. m.
With a wide range of equipment and seating alternatives, plus a modern appearance, the "newcomer" is likewise the ideal solution for inter-urban regular service in combination with excursions.
Operating a Setra bus or coach means keeping abreast of the future. The models in the MultiClass 400 are already equipped with Euro 5 engines, which become mandatory from 2009, as well as an NOx sensor. This nitrogen oxide sensor is installed downstream of the SCR catalytic converter, and measures the proportion of nitrogen monoxide (NO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) in the exhaust gases to ensure that the legally prescribed nitrogen oxide limits defined by the Euro 4 and Euro 5 emission standards are not exceeded.
