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.

Passive safety

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.

Economic efficiency

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.

Active safety

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.

* Within the limits of the system.

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.

MAN D15 engine – the powerhouse

Our powerhouse: the MAN D15 engine

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.

The MAN D08 engine – the economical lightweight

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.

To the MAN Bus Designer

MAN Lion’s Intercity: The Star in Saving

Efficient due to low TCO/LCC (Total Cost of Ownership / Life Cycle Costs).

A lightweight among buses

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.

  • Mounting of six tyres (rear axle with twin tyres) on aluminium rims
  • Lightweight and particularly efficient air-conditioning system
  • Use of lightweight 6-cylinder engine of the D08 model series

High efficiency

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.

Idle shut-down: An engine that is not running is not consuming any fuel, nor does it produce any emissions or noise


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
