Setra MultiClass 400: the right inter-city bus for every application
Never has there been more choice: for anyone looking for an inter-city bus that is functional, profitable and comfortable in equal measure, it is hard to beat the Setra MultiClass 400. Whether it be the barrier-free low-entry variant, or a classic floor height with an emphasis on profitability, whether the focus is on comfort or the H version for excursions and touring – the Setra MultiClass 400 has the right answer to every question.
The MultiClass 400 business models combine classic Setra strengths with equipment suitable for public tender. They blend maximum functionality with optimum profitability, whether as the low-entry model or with the classic floor height.
The UL and H models impress with their universal range of possible applications. This is reflected in the look with the choice of a steep inter-city or curved touring coach windscreen. The same is true of the equipment in the interior: two cockpits, different seating, characteristic luggage shelves for the inter-city route or touring coach stowage spaces plus nozzle ventilation and reading lamps – the MultiClass 400 leaves nothing to be desired and certainly lives up to its name.
The Setra LE business is available in three lengths from 12.3 m to 14.6 m, the Setra UL business with a continuous floor as a two-axle version in three lengths from 12.2 m to 13.4 m. The classic UL is especially versatile, and comes in six sizes from the compact S 412 UL with 10.8 m to the long S 419 UL with 15 m. As the H version the Setra MultiClass 400 has two axles and a length of 12.2 m and 13.0 m.
At the tail end, six-cylinder inline engines with displacements of 7.7 litres and 10.7 litres are at work in output categories from 220 kW (299 hp) to 290 kW (394 hp). Hallmark MultiClass 400: buyers have virtually a free choice when it comes to the transmission: a six-speed manual transmission, fully automated eight-speed Mercedes‑Benz GO 250‑8 PowerShift, two automatic torque converter transmissions – the tailor-made inter-city bus is a reality at Setra.
