The Mercedes-Benz Atego takes the DNA from his larger counterparts, the Actros and Antos and compacts into a true midsized specialist vehicle. The Atego can be positioned seamlessly into a variety of industries, whether it be distribution or construction, thanks to its generous 7.5 to 16t rating and broad scope of body mounting options. 

A total of 15 different wheelbase lengths, ranging from 3020mm to 6260mm, present a huge array of bodybuilder solutions, working in conjunction with our bodybuilder partner Alloy Bodies. The Atego can be presented to you fully built to support your business requirements.

Following the form of the New Mercedes-Benz truck, the Atego is provided with a fuel-efficient four or six cylinder Euro VI engine, creating a fuel-efficient, cost-effective and economical yet powerful vehicle.

Brake Systems

Available with a powerful engine brake, offering up to 235kW of braking power, reducing wear on the service brake or with a high-performance engine brake available on select engine variants, offering up to 300 kW of braking power for even greater safety.

Front axles from 4.1 to 6.0t fitted as standard with options available depending on weight class. Rear axles range from 6.2t to 11.0t capacity, dependant on model. All steel-sprung Ategos are equipped with a rear axle guide, which reduces roll understeer

Body Mounting Ability

Simplified for Speed and Stability
