Another Tourismo M for Lodge’s Coaches
Chelmsford-based Lodge’s Coaches has added to a Mercedes-Benz Tourismo M purchased last year with another one, built to Touring Plus specification.
Established in 1920, Lodges has a modern and vintage fleet for use on private hire, day excursions and extended holiday tours throughout the UK and Europe.
The new Tourismo seats 53 in Luxline upholstery and features arm- and foot-rests and fold-out trays. Entertainment is provided via dual 19in electronic folding LCD monitors paired to a Bosch audio/visual system.
Power is delivered by a Mercedes-Benz OM 470, 315kW engine, coupled to an 8-speed PowerShift automated gearbox. A wide range of safety specifications are fitted, including an Advanced Emergency Braking System, a Lane Departure Warning System and a reversing camera.
