The Mercedes Benz Atego is a leader in light-duty short-radius distribution. Whenever space is tight, whether in inner-city areas or on a construction site, the compact Atego will achieve what others cannot. The 12-23 tonne Atego is an ideal work partner with low costs, outstanding reliability and excellent driving comfort.
To be successful in the distribution sector, a truck needs to provide lower fuel consumption, longer service intervals and a high degree of reliability; three areas of achievement in the development of the Atego powertrain.
With the Atego, you will be able to appreciate the long service intervals, the long product life, and the truck's good re-sale value.
The Atego is equipped with the fuel-efficient and reliable BlueTec® engines, designed for economical operation and are optionally available with a Euro 5 rating. The Telligent® engine management system further supports the engine's economy.
The new engine start/stop system cuts fuel consumption even further. The engine start/stop system switches the Atego off when it is idling for longer periods of time, for example, at a red light it switches the engine off and automatically restarts it when it needs to move again. The system makes the vehicle more cost-effective and environmentally compatible.
With a choice of four cab variants, three different cockpits and an array of equipment options, the Atego can be your ideal truck for many jobs in the light-duty distribution sector.
The Atego is available in the following models:
1224 L 4x2
1624 L 4x2
2324 L 6x2
The Atego comes standard with the S-cab, a day cab particulary suited for short-radius distribution work. In addition, there are other cab options with the Atego, making it suitable to a variety of applications.
Choose from four cabs for a wide range of applications. The two L-cabs have space for comfortable beds for jobs that call for extended resting periods. While the two S-cabs are ideal for city distribution – compact external dimensions yet spacious on the inside.
The L-cab with raised roof offers outstanding comfort and room for two beds. For operations where rest is essential, the comfortable L-cab is equipped with a single bed. The S-cab variant extended at the back offers additional stowage and an even greater sense of space. The standard-specification S-cab is the perfect choice for city distribution.
A host of equipment variants and configurations are available to give your cab the personal touch.
The Atego delivers on economical operation with it's high-torque 6-cylinder engines, gearshift systems, transmissions and axles - all aligned for your specific application. Effective power transmission is largely dependent on the fine tuning of the engine output, transmission and rear-axle ratio. With that in mind, Mercedes-Benz gives you four transmission choices to get your Atego powertrain just right.
The low-noise, low-maintenance drive axles have a positive effect on fuel consumption. And boasting a large number of different ratios, they deliver optimum drive configurations to handle virtually all applications.
The Atego frame was specially designed with the demands of short-radius distribution in mind. It comprises a two-piece design with the front section made of two downward-sloping longitudinal members with a Z-profile. This enables the front part of the frame to be lowered and also allows more room for attaching assemblies. No frame reinforcements or sub-frames are required for the addition of a tail lift (with a load-bearing capacity of up to 1.5 t).
Bodies can be pre-assembled and easily fitted with the 50mm hole pattern, and no further drilling required when mounting any attachments and other units, such as tanks, exhaust systems and batteries. With the cathodic dip priming and no extra drilling, the truck's frame is better protected against corrosion, thereby maximising a trucks's service life.
Three types of suspension are offered with an Atego. Parabolic springs and maintenance-free rubber molecular bearings are fitted as standard and provide a comfortable drive and excellent stability. Enjoy even greater comfort and handling with the maintenance-free air suspension – with rear-axle wishbone for all Atego trucks weighing 12 t and above. Choose either as air-sprung rear axle in combination with steel springs at the front axle or, optionally as full air suspension from 12 t. The Telligent® level control system comes as standard, which allows the frame to be raised and lowered with ease.
The Atego is available with disc brakes all round or drum brakes for AWD vehicles, depending on the vehicle model, each with ABS as standard. Feel confident of short stopping distances with a constant-pressure system operating at 10 bar on a permanent basis. There is no fade or delayed response, even after the brakes are used repeatedly in quick succession. An engine brake and constantly-open throttle valve are available as standard.
