Scania recently unveiled the newest iteration of its Touring HD coach, which is 10.9 metres long and has a maximum capacity of 42 with a rear toilet and 45 without. The 9-litre, 360-horsepower bus features Kiel Avance 1020 passenger seats with leather head pads and piping as well as three-point seatbelts, seat back tables, USB chargers, a DVD player, and Bosch Smart Series audio equipment. Each bus also comes with a two-year repair and maintenance package and access to fleet management service data.
The new, shorter Touring HD model follows in the footsteps of the original 13.7-metre, 57 to 59-seat Touring, first introduced in 2009, and the more recent 12.1-metre model, which has a 51-seat capacity with a toilet and 53 without.
Scania Already Taking Orders
“We are delighted to announce this new shorter-length Touring coach, which will enter a market segmentation that is growing in demand,” says Lee Wale, UK retail sales manager for Scania. “The coach utilises the full-size Scania K 360 IB chassis, which is standard on the 12.1-metre version of the Touring and which many operators favour for its reliability, high level of specification, and fuel efficiency. We have initially placed an order for a batch of 10 vehicles. These will arrive in the UK late May 2020 and we are already taking orders for them from customers.”
