Mercedes Atego is the perfect truck for distribution work in town. It comes with low fuel consumption, outstanding reliability and superb agility. Customers can order a total of five different cabs for the Atego, and each of these comes with a choice of three different cockpits.

The Atego comes with a choice of 4 and 6-cylinder in-line engines with outputs between 150 and 279 hp. It comes with a choice of three different 6-speed gearboxes or a new 9-speed direct-drive gearbox (with eight forwards gears and one crawler gear). The latter’s hydraulic/pneumatic gearshift ensures easy gear changes. Precise low-speed manoeuvrings is also possible thanks to the low crawler and reverse gear ratios. And servicing is easier, since the gearshift hydraulic oil is maintenance-free for the entire truck service life.

There are four cabs, covering a wide range of applications. The two S Day-Cabs are ideal for town – compact on the outside and spacious on the inside. The two L Sleeper-Cabs have space for comfortable beds – for overnight stops.
