On the 1st anniversary of the launch of its latest generation TGX, MAN presented the Individual Lion S yesterday. The German truck manufacturer claims the new model boasts a sporty appearance and exclusive interior.
MAN says outside of the LION S stands out with its carbon visual effects on the bumper and mirrors, as well as a classy radiator design with black paint and chrome trims highlighted in red.
The exterior sports an optional roof bar with LED lamps, stainless steel front and sidebars, black wheel trims, and a sunblind.
As for the interior, MAN says a red decorative seam on the multifunctional leather steering wheel emphasizes the sporty character of the Lion S. The seat covers are made of genuine Alcantara leather and feature red diamond stitching, with the armrests and door inserts made to match. The headrests feature an appliqué of a red lion. The Lion S lettering adorns the chrome door mouldings and the red seat belts enhance the dynamic overall impression that the truck makes, says MAN.
MAN also argues that the lorry’s standard driver comfort package with its premium seats, generous steering wheel adjustment range and fully digital 12.3-inch instrumentation, ensures that the working environment in the spacious Lion S cab is a pleasant one.
Numerous assistance functions such as Adaptive Cruise Control Stop & Go, MAN ComfortSteering, Lane Return Assist LRA, lane change and turn assist or high beam assist are also installed to help drivers.
The optional MAN Individual comfort provides a spacious wall unit in place of the second bed for up to 1,400 litres of additional storage space. There’s also the option of fitting a kitchen unit with microwave and coffee machine. An optional 22-inch television on the side wall above the bed can be added to the interior too.
The new MAN TGX Lion S is equipped with an engine power of 510 to 640 hp.
