Travel at a profit.

The most economical coach is always the one that perfectly suits your area of operation. With the Setra ComfortClass and its wide range of models and equipment, your business will be in an excellent position in the face of tough competition. The perfectly tuned drivetrain, high value retention and highly professional service from OMNIplus additionally increase efficiency. Just like the new, unique assistance systems.

The next generation of the ComfortClass further expands its efficiency with revolutionary assistance systems. The optional Active Drive Assist 2 offers semi-automated driving in all speed ranges for the first time in a vehicle of its type. This means more safety – and more economic efficiency. The intelligent, fuel-saving cruise control Predictive Powertrain Control (PPC) comes as standard and is now even more powerful. With its extended map material, almost all extra-urban roads in Europe are covered in addition to motorways and trunk roads. And the new optional Driver Score assistance system gives the driver constant, up-to-date feedback – for a more economical driving style.

Thanks to many vehicle-specific individual measures, the Setra ComfortClass offers you exceptionally favourable fuel consumption. This is partly thanks to the advanced drive train from a single source. From the powerful and economical engines complying with the latest variant of the Euro VI emissions standard to the fully automated transmission and the smooth-running drive axle, all components bear the Mercedes-Benz star. On the other hand, the intelligent energy and consumption management as well as the exemplary Cd value of 0.33 make a significant contribution to the reduced fuel consumption of the ComfortClass - which also includes body lowering at motorway speeds. The maintenance costs of the ComfortClass are also favourable as usual. The long service intervals, the good accessibility of the components for maintenance and a well thought-out cleaning and replacement system for the exhaust gas aftertreatment all contribute to this. For all aspects of repair and maintenance of your bus or coach, OMNIplus is at your side with Europe's largest bus and coach-specific service network. Whether 24h SERVICE, staff training or digital service innovations – with OMNIplus you can optimise the cost-effectiveness of your Setra ComfortClass even further.

The advanced and predictive cruise control PPC integrates a driving style adapted to the landscape into the automatic gearshift and, in conjunction with the precisely tuned gearshift strategy, enables noticeable fuel savings. With the new, optimised generation, the system is now even more powerful. PPC guides you along country roads, takes junctions and roundabouts into account and is networked with the Adaptive Cruise Control. It can already be used from a speed of 15 km/h. 

Optimised and further developed for the future of intelligent driving, the predictive cruise control PPC is a prime example of the digital networking of buses and coaches. It draws on the topographical data of more than 95 per cent of motorways, trunk roads and interurban roads in many European countries. Via GPS, PPC always knows the current position of the vehicle and its route ahead with its altitude profile or gradient. Based on this data, the current and preset speed, the current vehicle mass and the data on engine power, torque and transmission, PPC regulates the speed and influences the shift strategy. EcoRoll is also used in the process: In worthwhile cases, the technology selects the neutral position of the transmission and thus allows the vehicle to roll longer without drag losses to save fuel. The engine continues to idle. Afterwards, the technology shifts back into gear.

Predictive Powertrain Control recently optimised the driving style even on intercity routes where the use of cruise control was previously not sensible. For this purpose, curve radii, speed limits and right-of-way rules at intersections and roundabouts throughout Europe have been stored in the map material.

Assuming Predictive Powertrain Control, this is shown in the cockpit display by a green shining symbol. Graphics are also shown that schematically announce the route events ahead.

Predictive Powertrain Control controls the cruise control in a fuel-saving manner. Depending on the terrain and situation, the tolerance values above and below the set speed (hysteresis) may be exceeded or fallen short of at certain points.

The new Predictive Powertrain Control now also optimizes the load of the engine on less demanding routes.

Your partner for the long-term.

The OM 470 with a capacity of 10.7 l is convincing all round. The in-line six-cylinder is the optimum engine when compact design with low weight, high performance with high torque and maximum efficiency with low fuel consumption and long maintenance intervals are required. A torque of 2,100 Nm is available from 1,100 rpm. Despite its compactness, the top variant achieves an output of 335 kW. The engine features cast iron alloy crankcases, steel pistons, one-piece cylinder heads with two overhead camshafts, four valves per cylinder and the newly developed X-PULSE high-pressure injection system. This not only minimises fuel consumption, but also maximises the smooth running characteristics of the engines while meeting Euro VI Stage E emission levels. In spite of the considerable additional effort required for exhaust treatment, we have succeeded in reducing the consumption of the engine. Together with longer maintenance intervals and a long service life, the engine meets all the requirements for future-proof and profitable road use.

Driver Score.

The new Driver Score assist system offers the driver important support. The driver’s driving style can be continuously optimised with practical messages in the display. The system scores in four categories – Acceleration, Braking, Smoothness of Drive, Coasting. Also relevant is the information on the vehicle status, such as low levels of fuel, AdBlue or engine oil. Driver Score evaluates the personal driving style according to certain parameters for each of these categories. In the Braking category, for example, the frequency with which the retarder is used at the highest level instead of operating the service brake or the sensible sequence of braking is evaluated. In the Acceleration category, on the other hand, a closer look is taken at how the accelerator pedal is used and the engine speed. With the new generation, the scope of the monitored parameters again increases significantly. Thus, in future, both the new and the existing parameters will be allocated to the four categories Acceleration, Braking, Smoothness of Ride, Coasting. A step that makes efficiency tangible.

Tyre Pressure Monitoring (TPM).

The wireless tyre pressure monitoring with indication in the multifunctional display is an electronic safety system that permanently monitors the air pressure of all tyres. Tyre pressure losses are displayed within the system limits. The right tyre pressure contributes to driving safety and significantly reduced fuel consumption. Even a tyre pressure set 0.5 bar too low can increase fuel consumption by up to 5%. The wheel electronics are positioned on the valve on the inside of the rim. The sensors record the data relevant to the tyre pressure and transmit it to the display instrument.

A Setra ComfortClass pays off for you. The perfectly tuned powertrain, advanced assistance systems and its unsurpassed aerodynamics minimise fuel consumption. Long service intervals, a substantial service network and a highly professional spare parts supply ensure operational readiness. The ComfortClass also impresses when considering its cost balance over the entire life cycle.

The Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) reflects all costs over the useful life of your ComfortClass. After all, what your ComfortClass costs is not just a question of purchase price and financing. That's why we at Setra always look at the big picture when we develop a vehicle. The essential TCO factors include the investment costs, energy costs, costs for maintenance and repair as well as the residual value when selling your vehicle. We optimise all these factors to achieve the best possible overall cost-effectiveness for you. For example, by constantly developing assistance systems and optimising maintenance intervals, but also through customised service and, last but not least, through the well-known quality and durability of our buses and coaches.

For low TCO costs, we work with you to match the equipment of your ComfortClass precisely to the required use. The choice of driver assistance systems in the vehicle plays a central role here. This allows you to specifically avoid accidents and the resulting repair costs and workshop times. They also help the driver to be as fuel-efficient as possible on the road. Another point is also the right service package for your ComfortClass. Whether service contracts, employee training or digital services – our OMNIplus service brand supports you with a customised offer to ensure operational readiness. And if a Setra does have to make a stopover, OMNIplus has the densest bus and coach-specific service network in Europe. Combined with an unrivalled spare parts service including in-house 3D printing. This total package enables you to enjoy your ComfortClass for a long time. A pleasure that even lasts when you want to replace your ComfortClass with a successor model at some point in the future. In this case, you will be pleasantly surprised by the high resale value of your Setra. If you wish, BusStore can also guarantee the residual value of your vehicle and buy it back later. This gives you the greatest possible planning security. Your Setra contact will be happy to calculate it specifically for you.

Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

Looking at the big picture.

There is a lot more that goes into what your Setra costs than its purchase price. At Setra, we always make it a point to look at the big picture when we develop a coach or bus. We optimise all TCO factors in view of achieving the best possible cost-effectiveness for you. These factors include investment costs, energy costs, maintenance and repair costs, as well as the residual value when your vehicle is sold.

The good news is that yes, we can influence them and we do – to the greatest possible extent. For example, by continuing to develop and evolve our drive components, by reducing the need for maintenance, by offering customised services – and of course, through the well-known outstanding quality and durability of our coaches and buses.
