Cab features – where the real flexibility lies

Four-point cab suspension 
Choose from coil springs with dampers, front coil springs and rear air suspension, or air suspension all round.

Air intakes 
Positioned on the left side in either a high or low position, depending on assignment. Front air intake is also available.

Colours
Take your pick, and look the part. Available in around 650 colour variants.

Upholstery
Several styles are available. Vinyl, textile and plush. Some seat trims (excluding vinyl and textile) can be specified to include a ventilating function.

Driver’s seat
Choose from three different levels of comfort: Progressive (plush or leather),Dynamic (textile) and Robust (vinyl). Extra freedom comes through flexibility - the total adjustment scope fore to aft is 240 millimetres, and vertically 100 millimetres.  The driver’s seat is fitted as standard with a head restraint, adjustable and fold-down backrest, vertical and fore-aft adjustment, adjustable lumbar support and angle-adjustable seat.

Passenger seat 
Choose from three different levels of comfort: Progressive (plush or leather),Dynamic (textile) and Robust (vinyl). The passenger seats are equipped as standard with head restraints. A moving passenger seat is also available.

Beds 
Built to provide a comfortable night's sleep. Bed sizes: 74×200 centimetres, with 81.5 centimetres wide middle section, or 74×200 centimetres, extractable to 88×200 centimetres with 95.5 centimetres wide middle section. The bed in the Globetrotter XXL cab is 213 centimetres long. The width at head, middle section and feet are 99/106.5/91 centimetres respectively. 
Equip your cab with a foam mattress or a 16 centimetres mattress, with pocket springs and excellent comfort. Three options of firmness are available: Soft, Semi-firm and Firm.
We also provide two options of overlay mattress protector: improves comfort and allows you to square things away quicker.
Also available: recline with adjustable backrest, and the Upper Comfort bed (dimensions 60×190 centimetres or 70×190 centimetres).

Interior storage 
The cab contains a front shelf with four DIN-standard recesses and two large storage compartments with roller-blind doors on the driver and passenger sides. The rear wall is equipped with a light weight upper rear shelf with excellent illumination.
Under the bed, you can find two pull-out drawers with a total volume of 130 litres. Additionally, there are two smaller storage compartments under the mattress at the foot (10 litres) and head (15 litres) of the bed, and a storage compartment at the foot of the bed for a PET bottle.

Exterior storage 
On both sides of the cab you'll find large storage compartments that can be opened from outside or within. An additional unheated storage space of 30 litres is available under the cab on both sides.

Sky window/roof hatch 
Each cab is equipped with a fixed sky window or an optional roof hatch that can be opened to 50 millimetres. This also serves as an emergency exit. Roof hatch adjustment can be done either manually or electrically.

Steering wheel
Comes in two different sizes – 450 mm or 500 mm in diameter, depending on your truck's specification. The steering wheel’s height can be adjusted by up to 90 mm and the angle can be adjusted by 28°. With neck tilt (option) the steering wheel can be adjusted in vertical position between -5° and +15° – increasing the driver comfort. Integrated controls in the steering wheel provide safe and comfortable operation of cruise control, horn, phone and the functions in the Instrument Display and Side Display.

Climate system
Three alternative climate systems allow you to control the temperature.
• Fan ventilation with conventional coolant heater.
• Air conditioning with manual control (MCC).
• Air conditioning with automatic temperature control (ECC/ECC2). Also available with sensors for sun intrusion, fog conditions and air quality.
Complement the system with a cab and engine parking heater and I-ParkCool, our cab parking cooler.

I-ParkCool 
The engine doesn't need to be running for you to enjoy an air-conditioned cab. I-ParkCool creates controls cab temperature in a stationary vehicle. It interacts with the cab parking heater to generate a comfortable climate: useful, for example, during nights when the temperature drops sharply and suddenly.
The system checks the battery health so as not to compromise starting ability. And it calculates how much power is needed to heat or cool the cabin. If the batteries aren’t fully charged, the system works out how much can be used.
Furthermore, it's quiet. The system generated roughly 20 dB less noise than competing systems in the market, reducing noise pollution and aiding rest.
The system is fully integrated with the vehicle’s normal air ventilation system* and hot or cold air is distributed through the ordinary vents as needed, distributed equally. Cab aerodynamics and standing height inside the cab are not affected by the system.
* With the exception of cab heater (PH-CAB)

MAKE YOURSELF AT HOME

Get comfortable. Try the seat. The bed. Look in all the cupboards. You won’t believe how much space there is.
