20TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL EDITION Earlier this year, Mercedes-Benz Trucks MENA launched a new special 20th anniversary edition of

the power transfer to the two driven rear axles via a twin-plate clutch and the reliable and efficient 16-speed Mercedes PowerShift automated gearshift. The Mercedes PowerShift provides specific driving modes

that support the driver in mastering

all traffic situations with ease and convenience, thus facilitating the driver's level of concentration.

Key highlights of the Actros 20 Years Edition are the various state- of-the art safety features, providing maximum active and passive safety -- an area that Mercedes-Benz has been pioneering in the industry for more than 50 years. Besides the standard electronically controlled TelligentAaAaAeAa braking system with Anti-lock braking system (ABS) and Accelerati skid control (ASR), the truck is also equipped with the optional Active Brake Assist. The Active Brake Assist system operates with three radar beams, which constantly scan an area of 1

to 200 meters ahead of the truck. Radar detection of a collision with a moving obstacle would result in the driver been given a visual and audile alert by the system. Depending on the severity of the situation, the system will react with a partial braking maneuver and, if necessary, even initiates an emergency braking to standstill. Thus, the Active Brake Assist helps to avoid dangerous rear- end collisions, for instance at the end of a traffic jam, and minimizes the impact for occupants in case a collision is inevitable.

Accident prevention is also assisted by the Bluetooth radio enabling hands free use of a mobile phone whilst driving.

The Actros 20 Years Edition is available to order from Mercedes- Benz Oman Commercial Vehicles network in Muscat, Salalah, Suhar and Haima. When purchasing

an Actros, a professional driver training is also offered by Zawawi Trading Company to instruct fleet managers and drivers on how to operate the truck and its features focusing on maximum safety

and efficiency.
