The new MAN Lion's City with individual wheel suspension for optimum manoeuvrability

Individual wheel suspension

The new MAN Lion’s City is the first city bus from MAN with individual wheel suspension which allows for almost independent wheel movement on either side of the vehicle, thus providing optimum manoeuvrability.

In addition there is minimum transfer of movements cased by imperfections in the road from the wheels and the wheel mounts, via the body, to the opposite side of the vehicle. This means that the driver and the passengers can enjoy a smoother and more comfortable ride in the new MAN Lion’s City.

Aluminium pivot joint in the new MAN Lion’s City

Pivot joint

The pivot joint of the MAN Lion’s City is made of aluminium has a higher torsional moment, and offers increased rigidity and secure footing for passengers.

In addition, new electrics and hydraulics ensure a high and continuously variable damping torque which stabilises the bus at high speeds and when turning sharp corners, making the overall driving experience even more pleasant for the diver and the passengers alike.

Hydraulic shock absorbers

Shock absorbers

The new MAN Lion’s City has a brand new type of shock absorber fitted as standard. The purely hydraulic PCV (Premium Comfort Valve) vibration damper ensures notably smoother driving behaviour while at the same time reducing noise levels.

This ensures high levels of comfort for drivers and passenger and comes as standard in the new MAN Lion’s City.
