Even though the bus is one of the safest vehicles overall and the risk of accident during bus journeys is very low – mishaps can still occur.
Mercedes-Benz has ensured that the consequences of an accident are minimised as much as possible. For example, the Tourismo's sidewall reinforcement makes a significant contribution to its high level of passive safety.
In addition the Tourismo has partition walls, grab rails and special seating which absorb the energy during impact or if the vehicle overturns. This provides essential protection for the occupants.
