YOU’RE ALWAYS IN GOOD HANDS
Active safety is all about making the driving of your truck as secure as possible, with the aim of minimising road risks, collisions and other incidents that could lead to injury. Passive safety focuses on design aspects that minimise the consequences resulting from a collision.
Scania brake pads consist of a unique friction material optimised for the patented alloy in the brake disc, which ensures maximum service life with consistent braking behaviour. New brake callipers, allied with improved brake actuation and the more advanced position of the front axle, greatly improve the braking distance of the new truck generation.
See it before it happens
A Scania cab offers unobstructed and panoramic views of the front and sides. Slimmer A-pillars, lower side windows and instrument panel, combined with adjustable driver position, contribute to enhanced visibility for the driver. During the darker hours you can choose to dim the dashboard lights.
When driving at night, automatically levelling halogen headlights, position lights, direction and side indicators improve safety. High-mounted spot lamps are incorporated into the sun shield, while auxiliary lighting includes fog and spot lamps for adverse weather conditions.
Camera systems with full-frontal display monitors are available for an even wider and more centred field of vision.
High crash standards
The structure of Scania’s entire cab range offers outstanding crash performance and includes structural integrity, instrument positioning and dispersion of impact forces. It also significantly reduces the risk of a car ending up under the vehicle in the event of a collision.
Swedish crash test standards are among the most stringent in the world. Our new generation has surpassed them with ease and the new cab structure offer an outstanding crash performance.
Side curtain airbag
Scania’s roll-over airbag targets one of the most serious consequences of rollover accidents, where drivers or passengers are injured in a collision or fatally crushed by their own vehicle.
Available in Scania’s new P, G, R and S-cabs as well as in the CrewCab.
