HD models


Versatility of choice.

Setra high-deck coaches are just right when you set off on extended journeys with VIP passengers and large amounts of luggage. The spectrum ranges from the compact S 511 HD to the manoeuvrable three-axle S 516 HD and the capacity-optimised S 519 HD. In brief: The next generation of the ComfortClass 500 offers you the perfect vehicle for every requirement thanks to its wide range of variants.

No matter which variant of the ComfortClass you choose: Each shines with a convincing price-performance ratio, fair investment costs per seat, exemplary availability and, above all, a high degree of future security.

Enjoy the Setra ComfortClass in its most compact form. The manoeuvrable S 511 HD is the club bus for high-quality travel with small groups.

Discover your options. The popular S 515 HD is in the classic 12-metre class and offers plenty of space for luggage. From excursions to long-distance travel – this is what the ideal coach looks like for a variety of purposes.

Drive more easily into the profit zone. Plenty of seating, ample luggage space, all on just two axles. The S 516 HD/2 pays off for you through particularly low costs per passenger.

Increase the performance of your bus fleet. The S 516 HD shines as a three-axle vehicle with a large passenger compartment, enormous payload and exclusive equipment options. At the same time, it remains amazingly agile.

Discover the volume model for your coach fleet. The S 517 HD impresses with its generous luggage compartment with high payload and plenty of space for up to 59 passengers.

Maximise your transport capacity. The optimised seating capacity of the S 519 HD is ideal when you are carrying lots of passengers. That it also scores highly in cost effectiveness makes it a perfect choice for long distance routes.
