Viseon’s C10 midicoach is now available with two powertrain options

GERMANY

Viseon has revised the specification of its 10.4m C10 premium midicoach which will now be equipped with a 400bhp (294 kW) MAN engine as standard.

The 10.5-litre six-cylinder D2066 LOH 28 is installed vertically in-line at the rear. Its maximum torque of 1900Nm is available over a wide speed range of 1000 min to 1400rpm and ensures a powerful yet economical performance – even at full load and in the mountains. Thanks to a cooled EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) and a closed particulate filter, the MAN engine achieves EEV emission standard without the need for AdBlue. The 6.9-litre six-cylinder MAN D 0836 LOH with an output of 290 hp (213 kW) is still available as an option.

Viseon has also revised the chassis and, in keeping with the full sized C11 and C13 models, the C10 is now fitted with the latest generation of ZF axles. Independent ZF RL75E suspension is employed at the front while the ZF A132 drive axle is installed at the rear. Cruise control and Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) are fitted as standard. Further electronic drive assist programmes, such as lane guard system (LGS) with vibration alarm integrated in the driver’s seat are available as options.

Depending on the door layout the four-star version of the C10 can seat up to 36, while the three-star has a maximum capacity of 41.

The C10 is not to be confused with Viseon’s new two-axle 11.38m C11 coach, featured in CBW996.
