Outstanding safety and greater flexibility in long-distance transport
MAN Lion’s Intercity will inspire you – offering improved safety and comfort for passengers, a cockpit consequently oriented to the needs of the driver and maximum efficiency.
The high flexibility of the configuration allows our MAN Lion’s Intercity to be tailored to deployment as an intercity bus, in shuttle transport or as school bus. When it comes to the transport of school children, safety is a top priority. That’s why the MAN Lion’s Intercity meets the ECE R66.02 standard, applicable since 2017, which sets particularly stringent requirements for the strength of the body in buses.
The MAN Lion’s Intercity and its many possible uses
It connects cities, suburbs and the surrounding areas
First class comfort even on longer routes, a high level of functionality and outstanding safety: The MAN Lion’s Intercity is the perfect long-distance vehicle.
Safely on the way to school
Perfect for use as a school bus: high efficiency, solid workmanship and uncompromising safety.
Flexible use in shuttle transport
Featuring a large luggage compartment and low LCC (life cycle costing), the MAN Lion’s Intercity is an economic miracle for regular service and shuttle transport.
Made for everyday use
Whether with its distinctive aerodynamic design, or with its bright and lavish passenger area with continuous colour scheme, the MAN Lion’s Intercity is sure to impress with its broad range of applications across the line.
Your benefits at a glance
Processing with the highest MAN quality
Materials, production and processing for the MAN Lion’s Intercity are consistently designed for long service life. The high MAN quality standards ensure that the bus is very well equipped for the demanding long-distance travelling – every day anew.
The MAN Lion’s Intercity already meets the ECE R66.02 standard, applicable as of 2017, for roll-over rigidity and thus provides an even higher level of passive safety.
The MAN Lion’s Intercity impresses with its low fuel consumption. For this, lightweight construction was consistently pursued in the development. After extensive testing, we were successful in showing a measurable reduction in the aerodynamic drag. In addition, the maintenance- and repair friendliness of the bus reduces downtimes to a minimum.
In road traffic, accidents can never be ruled out – it’s good if passengers, driver and other road users can count on it, that everything is done for your protection. For the MAN Lion’s Intercity, safety is a top priority.
In addition, accidents lead to increased costs due to repairs and downtimes. The intercity bus is equipped with numerous safety systems. The risk of accident is reduced significantly and the economic efficiency is maximised.

Powerful and efficient drive
The MAN Lion’s Intercity has a powerful and efficient drive. Over mountains, through valleys, on rough terrain or paved surfaces – the intercity bus has what it takes.
With up to 360 hp (265 kW), the highly efficient nine-litre D15 engine in the MAN Lion’s Intercity brings a lot of power to the road. Compared to the tried-and-tested lighter D08 engine, the D15 engines features higher torque and delivers the power necessary for challenging routes.
The common-rail engine meets the Euro 6 standard and also has highly effective exhaust gas cleaning with SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction), which assists in almost entirely eliminating nitrogen oxide emissions – your plus when it comes to eco-friendliness.
Economical powerhouse: the MAN D08 engine
Small but with plenty to offer! The MAN D08 engine is a sturdy lightweight among MAN bus engines and can handle very high payloads. The exhaust gas treatment system with SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) also significantly reduces nitrogen oxide emissions. The compact design makes the D08 very easy to access, which means that maintenance effort will be significantly reduced.
In the design of the vehicle, lightweight construction was consistently applied. The use of lightweight components ensures a particularly low vehicle weight for the MAN Lion’s Intercity.

Features such as automatic engine shut-down during idling or the air compressor with automatic idling system ensure high efficiency.
Two-stage air compressor with idling system
The two-stage air compressor with automatic idling system (SLS) automatically switches to idling in the non-delivery phase and thus contributes noticeably to a reduction in fuel consumption.
Idle Shut Down
The automatic engine shut-down during Idle Shut Down avoids CO2 and vehicle-related noise emissions.
Air resistance plays only a minor role at low speeds in city traffic. However, in long-distance travel at speeds up to 100 km/h, it contributes to a large portion of the fuel consumption. Through numerous wind tunnel tests and simulations, it has been possible to significantly reduce consumption to ensure maximum efficiency and economy in use as a long-distance bus.
The aerodynamically developed design with vaulted, slightly inclined panoramic front window provides less contact area to the headwind. The air flow is optimally deflected by the rear separation edge.
Low downtimes, low maintenance costs
The free access to all service points simplifies servicing and repair work. This effects a reduction in downtimes for the MAN Lion’s Intercity and at the same time cuts down on repair and workshop costs:
Daily checks can be carried out in a few simple steps thanks to the quick to find service points
The compact design of our reliable engines, spaciously dimensioned side flaps and an angled floor panel offer optimum access to the engine compartment
Easy access to the spare wheel and the front lighting through the large and wide-opening middle section of the front hood
MAN quality standards
Highest quality standards for materials, manufacturing and processing ensure minimum life cycle costs (LCC) for the MAN Lion’s Intercity:
Extremely robust plastics with a pleasant touch
Easy-to-clean and resistant surfaces with high UV resistance
Proven stable construction and compounds that reliably withstand high and frequent loads
Optimum protection against corrosion by cathodic dip coating (CDC).
