People who want to see the nicest parts of the world also want to get there in the nicest way. In the Starliner, the VIP CLASS among touring coaches, passengers can experience unforgettable moments in an incomparable bus: when it comes to driving safety, in terms of innovative technology and functions – above all, however, in relation to travelling comfort. A vehicle that embellishes the demands and tradition of the NEOPLAN brand like no other and gives its passengers, all over the world, the feeling that: you just can‘t travel in a more delightful way.
UNMISTAKABLE: THE DESIGN
The expressive interplay of faces and edges gives the Starliner an aura of elegance and lightness.A reversing camera installed as a series feature allows the driver to manoeuvre his vehicle exactly to the centimetre.
MONITOR ALWAYS WITHIN VIEW
Functionality and appealing design, for information and entertainment too: The central monitor in the vehicle cupola offers passengers the best view from all seats.
DAYLIGHT BRIGHT EXAMPLE: THE CEILING LIGHTS
When needed, the Starliner turns night into day: When the sun goes down, the lighting in the window curvature of the side windows assures that the light still comes from the same direction – which means the interior is always naturally lit.
ACOUSTICS LIKE A CONCERT HALL
The Surface-Sound-System of the Starliner offers its passengers an unforgett able sound experience: There are no speakers in the true sense. The entire ceiling of the bus is used as a resonance medium via exciters instead.
It‘s worth taking a closer look at the Starliner. Starting with the exclusive driver‘s cockpit. The monochrome design is a fusion of functionality, ease of operation and clarity. The driver can be sure of having an eye and a grip on everything. The interior too is a perfect interplay of design and function. Matching this is an excellent interior design with optimal fi ttings. A comfortable interior with numerous extras through to generously scaled and inviting entries and exits make the Starliner state-of-the-art.
With a successful combination of intelligent systems, the Starliner offers active and passive safety at the utmost level. Even in critical situations, it thereby gives its passengers a great feeling of travelling safety – the most important requisite to enjoy the journey.
AUTOMATIC DISTANCE CONTROL
The 'Adaptive Cruise Control' (ACC)1 system detects the area of traffi c in front of the vehicle via a radar sensor and automatically keeps the set distance to the vehicle travelling ahead by subtle brake interventions with the retarder.
ACTIVE SAFETY 'IN ACTION'
The 'Electronic Stabilisation Program' (ESP) regulates braking at all wheels in corners and evasive manoeuvres and also controls the engine output in a targeted and individual manner. The risk of careering off track in dangerous situations is thereby drastically reduced.
MULTITALENT: THE BODY SUSPENSION
Depending on the speed, road conditions and load state, the active system changes the set-up of the electronically controlled CDS (Comfort Drive Suspension) and adapts it optimally to the prevailing conditions. Advantage: more comfort and safe handling in critical situations. TRUE RUNNING CAMERA EYE. The 'Lane Guard System' (LGS)2 uses a camera to orientate itself around the road markings: if the bus veers off track, the driver is given an appropriate signal by way of vibrators integrated in the seat.
PREVIEW FOR THE NEXT CORNER
With its bi-xenon headlamps, the Starliner beams not only particularly far but it also features an additional cornering light with which it can look around the corner. Corners are thereby lit up in a wide arc; the run of the road can be followed and potential obstacles can be detected in good time.
