Leather seats, air-suspension and traction control come as standard

Scania Philippines has just introduced a new commerical bus that they claim will deliver a comfortable and luxurious ride. Called the Marcopolo, Scania's latest bus features good build quality and improved sound insulation.

With an emphasis on passengers, the Marcopolo has luxurious leather seats and extensive noise insulation ensuring first class passenger comfort according to Scania. Adding to the excellent design of the coach is Scania’s fully engineered chassis.

Standard features include full air-suspension, Electronic Braking System (EBS), Traction Control (TC) to improve traffic safety and mobility in slippery roads and Bodywork information in Instrument Cluster (ICL).

Scania buses and coaches are inspired by the people who travel in them and those who drive them. We're dedicated to creating vehicles that provide the best results possible, whether that's happy passengers on the daily commute or profitable solutions for fleet managers,” said Marie Sjodin Enstrom, Managing Director of Scania Southeast Asia.

The launch of the Scania Marcopolo further strengthens Scania’s presence and commitment to the Philippine market. Since the opening of its showroom last year, Scania is on track to surpass its target of selling 125 trucks in 2016 in celebration of its 125th founding anniversary.

We hope that our line of buses will be as well-received by the local market. We invite everyone to come visit our showroom and check out the Scania Marcopolo as everything about it is designed to make ordering, owning and running it as easy as possible, with minimum lead-time and maximum uptime,” said Leilani Lim-Tan, Vice President of BJ Mercantile, Inc., the local sales and services dealer of Scania.
