A busy year for Fuso has centred around the unique and popular Rosa model and its latest variation.

Fuso says the Rosa has the most advanced safety features in its class and unmatched flexibility with both a 22-seat and 25-seat variants available.

With buses often operating in high pedestrian traffic areas, safety of buses is paramount and something that Fuso and its parent company, Daimler Truck, take very seriously.

The Rosa’s Advanced Emergency Braking System uses both radar and a camera, while it can perform full emergency braking in the event of a potential collision. This advanced radar-based system can even detect, and begin braking for, moving pedestrians.

Rosa also has a Lane Departure Warning System as standard, as is its Electronic Stability Program, driver and front passenger airbags, height adjustable LED headlights, Hill Start Assist, disc brakes all round and a reversing camera.

There are also four exits and three-point lap sash seatbelts for passengers in the Deluxe model. The latest generation Rosa also features a transom window on the passenger side to further enhance its excellent visibility.

These features are certainly hitting the mark with Rosa customers who put safety at the top of their priority list.

Fuso has a reputation for strong customer support and is backing the recently upgraded Rosa with a generous five year/200,000km warranty, giving owners’ real peace of mind.

It has also introduced longer service intervals, now 15,000km, which help increase the time the bus spends on the road.

The Rosa was recently updated with an efficient 3.0-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel common rail engine with the most power and torque in its class – 129kW and 430Nm. This advanced unit, which features a variable geometry turbocharger, is smaller and lighter than the engine it replaces, but is also more powerful. It also meets stringent Euro 6 emission standards, well ahead of Australian regulated standards, which ensures dramatic reductions of nitrogen oxide and particulate emissions.

Fuso also boasts an advanced Duonic Automated Manual Transmission that features six gears. This advanced dual clutch transmission delivers fuel efficiency improvements as well as fast and smooth shifts. It also features a handy creep function for easy low-speed manoeuvring.

A new flat-floor design not only makes it easier for passengers to get in and out of their seats, but also allows for simpler aftermarket wheelchair lift installations.

Fuso says one of the things Rosa buyers appreciate is how easy it is to drive and part of this is due to its independent front suspension for optimum comfort and handling as well as rack and pinion steering for precise feel. It also has a class leading turning circle of 12.6m (22 seat) and 14.2m (25 seat) which helps it navigate tight spots.

Fuso recently freshened the interior and exterior design of the Rosa, giving it a stylish and modern look due to new design language.

It is available in Standard and Deluxe trim levels to help customers have the ability to choose the Rosa that is right for them.
