Cost-effectiveness

The bottom line - exceptional cost-effectiveness.

With the TopClass, you benefit from a surprisingly low total cost of ownership (TCO). For example, several technical features and customised service offerings ensure low maintenance costs - and therefore result in a high overall cost-effectiveness. You'll also capitalise on the high value retention of a Setra. Your Setra contact will gladly show you how the TopClass will pay off for you.

State-of-the-art engines from Mercedes-Benz.

The current generation of BlueEFFICIENCY Power engines with BlueTEC 6 exhaust gas aftertreatment doesn't just combine low fuel consumption and low emissions. Its latest, top-of-the-range technology also impresses thanks to phenomenal performance and high torque for particularly powerful starts across a broad driving range.

Economical maintenance costs.

The maintenance costs of the HDH model are pleasingly low. You'll benefit from the remarkably long service intervals, the easy accessibility of the components for maintenance, as well as a sophisticated switching system for exhaust aftertreatment.

PPC (Predictive Powertrain Control).

PPC (option) is a GPS cruise control, which also engages in the automatic control of the PowerShift 3 transmission.* Because the system knows the topography ahead, it enables the automatic gear switching before declines, on mountainous terrain, before hilltops and in valleys - for a predictive selection of gear and speed. The PPC therefore contributes to the optimisation of fuel consumption and makes the TopClass even more cost-effective.

More cost-effective on the road.

The Eco Driver Feedback (EDF, optional) gives the driver individual feedback on his personal driving style with more cost-effective driving in mind.

A long-term investment, economical consumption, favourable maintenance costs: the TopClass doesn’t only stand out with its design, comfort and versatility. It will also impress you when you consider its cost-effectiveness throughout its entire lifecycle and beyond – the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

With the TopClass, you are investing in a coach with the greatest possible value retention. To ensure optimal cost-effectiveness, we make sure to adapt the coach’s equipment to your needs, as well as financing, service and service contracts to your specific business application. If you wish, BusStore will even guarantee the residual value of your coach and buy it back at a later date. This enables the greatest possible planning security.

The highly efficient engines in our TopClass coaches ensure low fuel consumption with maximum performance. The Mercedes-Benz GO-250 PowerShift 3 transmission, which is ideally optimised to the engine, further enhances fuel consumption. The outstanding aerodynamics of the TopClass, as well as OMNIplus DriverTraining programmes also contribute to favourable consumption values.

Long maintenance intervals and the high availability of your TopClass will keep your maintenance costs pleasantly low. Thanks to the full-coverage OMNIplus Service Network with coach-specific Service Points, you can count on remaining mobile at all times with your TopClass.

We are continuously optimising all these cost factors. Of course, there are costs which we cannot influence. In all cases, your TopClass not only performs brilliantly for passengers, but also for your bottom line. Your Setra partner will be happy to go through the figures with you in detail.
