Features adjustable air suspension, wheelchair ramp

Columbian Manufacturing Corporation (CMANC), the official distributor of Daewoo Bus in the Philippines, has officially revealed the BS120SN low floor bus (LFB) at this year's Philippine International Motor Show.

According to the company, this bus features the latest in powertrain tech and passenger amenities. At the heart of the BS120SN is a 7.7-liter inline-six turbo-diesel that produces 300 PS @ 2,200 rpm and 1,127 Nm of torque at 1,200 rpm. Power is then transferred to the rear wheels via a 6-speed automatic gearbox with retarder and auto neutral.

Inside, the bus can seat 39 passengers, along with 49 standees. It also has security CCTV cameras, interior ambient lighting, and anti-jam doors.

Better ingress and egress was made possible with the use of the electronically controlled air suspension system. This allows passengers to enter and exit with ease. Disabled passengers also benefit from the air suspension system.
