Macpherson Coaches has acquired a new Mercedes-Benz Tourismo from EvoBus UK.

Director Neil Macpherson said: “This is our first full size, fully automatic, Mercedes-Benz coach after having a range of mini and midi-type Mercedes vehicles previously. Our new vehicle will be used for touring and private hire.”

The new Tourismo delivered to Macpherson Coaches has 49 seats with leather headrests. Power is delivered by a Mercedes-Benz OM 457 (h) LA 260kW Euro 5 engine, coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission. With regards to safety, a variety of systems including ASR, ABS and brake assist are all fitted as standard to provide support to drivers. Some options fitted to this vehicle in particular include alloy wheels and a rear view reversing camera with wash system.

Passengers can stretch out in comfort with Luxline upholstery, while being entertained by the Professional Line 3 Radio/CD/ DVD system, including two 19-inch monitors.
