Mercedes-Benz Trucks, the European arm of the Daimler Trucks business, has launched an updated Actros heavy-duty truck flagship, packed with new technologies, vehicle safety and driver-assistance features. While this fifth-generation Actros may have changed little in outward appearance, there have been significant updates under the skin.

Active Drive Assist, MirrorCam and Active Brake Assist 5 are all new, along with updates to Sideguard Assist and Predictive Powertrain Control. Actros comes with a new multimedia cockpit and is the first truck on European roads to replace conventional rearview mirrors with a camera and screen system, called MirrorCam.
