The Mercedes-Benz Atego
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 16 t rating and broad scope of body mounting options.
A total of 15 different wheelbase lengths, ranging from 3020 mm to 6260 mm, 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 4- or 6-cylinder Euro VI engine, creating a fuel-efficient, cost-effective and economical yet powerful vehicle.
Powerful, reliable and economical, the new Atego is provided with the same excellent engine technologies as available across the range. Two engine options are available with 7 power ratings from 115 kW (156 hp) to 220 kW (299 hp) each designed to provide high-performance abilities and low fuel consumption; the new Atego boasts a 50% fuel saving compared to its predecessor model.
A true 21st century vehicle, the Atego offers great performance abilities with exceptional economical drive qualities.
Available with a choice of 6-, 8- or 9- speed transmissions and Mercedes Powershift 3; an automated transmission which ensures precise gear selection and short shift times. Select from "power" of "off road" drive modes for ideal driving dynamics.
Available with a powerful engine brake, offering up to 235 kW 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.
An additional 160 kW (at 80 km/h) (depending on vehicle and variation) is supplied via the Atego's permanent magnet retarder; a wear-free auxiliary brake.
Axle variations available throughout, including both driven and non-driven front axles allowing for all wheel drive options for greater handling where required.
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
Differential locks are fitted as standard to all tipper and all-wheel-drive models.
Body Mounting Ability
Simplified for Speed and Stability
Manufactured with bodybuilding in mind, the Atego is provided from the factory with a number of pre-installation, such as side underrun guards, to help improve the speed and quality of mounting, so that you get your finished vehicle quicker than expected.
Also featured from the factory is the parameterizable special module, which enables the tailor-made programming of complex bodies and power take-offs. It also provides for perfect data processing and the exchange of information between vehicle and body.

To enable the Atego to be tailored as closely as possible to its field of work, it is available with four cabs and three cockpit variants. All the cabs offer well thought-out ergonomics, a high level of comfort and convenience and make working in and with Atego particularly easy. The lower mounted cab, provided because of the z-profile front section allows for easy access to the cab.
A choice of two cabs are specifically designed for the new Atego in construction site operation, The S-Cab ClassicSpace and S-Cab ClassicSpace with extended rear panel are characterised by easy access, compact exterior dimensions and excellent visibility. The standard roof height allows for easy access to tight locations, whilst providing an excellent working space for construction site work. These cabs are also available with the option of a centre seat.
In addition, some models are available with the option of the L-Cab, both as ClassicSpace and BigSpace versions, offering comfort for overnight stays and up to two beds. These cabs also offer seat/bunk combinations as an option. Also available by special request is a crew cab.
A choice of four cabs are specifically designed for the new Atego in distribution operation, The S-Cab ClassicSpace and S-Cab ClassicSpace with extended rear panel are characterised by easy access, compact exterior dimensions and excellent visibility. The standard roof height allows for easy access to tight locations, whilst providing an excellent working environment for distribution work. These cabs are also available with the option of a centre seat.
Where more space is required, the L-Cab ClassicSpace and L-Cab BigSpace cabs are available, providing one or two beds, increased storage space and the option of additional seating with the seat bunk combination. A crew cab is also available by special request.
Standard fitment across all 4x2 new Atego models, Stability Control Assist helps to maintain driving stability of the truck in potentially dangerous driving situations such as skidding or swerving. The system acts to redress the balance by adjusting the truck’s power supply and braking. Through systematic adjustment of the engine torque, precisely metered braking for the prime mover and trailer, the system is there to help drivers avoid dangerous situations.
Combined with an alert and careful driving style, Stability Control Assist can make a significant difference to safety for both vehicles and personnel.
Manoeuvring lights are optionally available to assist the driver when manoeuvring in darkness. The lights are installed behind the side underrun guard and illuminate the ground in the area of the rear axle thus making it possible to avoid rim or tyre damage as a result of high kerbs. Manoeuvring lights are particularly helpful for rigid vehicles with a long wheelbase, since the rear axle "cuts in" when driving through tight spaces.
