Hyundai Aerocity 540 (2007) / DIESEL / 290HP / D6AB
A large city bus called Aero City appeared in the production range of Hyundai in 1984. The first version received an index of 520. In the Russian open spaces it did not receive wide distribution. But her follower Aero City 540, which debuted in 1991, is a great success in Russia. This modern comfortable bus is ideal for city traffic.
Aero City is a classic one-car railcar layout. Modern streamlined shape, an interesting solution to the front of the glazing, as well as the original front and rear lighting, distinguish it from the city stream. The location of the engine and gearbox - in the back of the car. This design is adopted as a general rule by leading manufacturers of buses. Aero City dimensions (length / width / height, mm) - 10915/2490/3175, wheelbase - 5400 mm.
The spacious and comfortable saloon has a seating arrangement of 23 + 1 (conductor’s seat) and 47 seats. For ease of boarding and disembarking passengers, there are two doors in the front and middle parts of the body. In the standard equipment there is everything you need: an air conditioner that maintains the optimum temperature in the cabin, a free air flow fan, power steering, a radio tape recorder, a speakerphone, bright internal lighting and even an electronic clock.
The model was developed in collaboration with Mitsubishi Fuso Bus & Truck. From the Japanese, the bus received a chassis, transmission and engine. From our own developments, it is worth noting the electrolytic anticorrosion treatment of the body, carried out in a bath, where the body is placed entirely. Diesel engines mounted on the Aero City are highly reliable. At the buyer's choice, two power units are offered: a six-cylinder D6AB turbodiesel with a volume of 11,149 cm³ and a capacity of about 280 hp. and aspirated diesel D6AV of 11,149 cm³, with a capacity of about 240 hp Motors are paired with a five-speed manual gearbox.
The suspension very well swallows small hollows, when driving on the highway there is no longitudinal swinging effect inherent in many buses. The rear suspension is on a split bridge on springs, the front one is dependent, on springs with a transverse beam. Hydropneumatic brakes.
The manufacturer paid great attention to the safety of passengers - the photo sensor and the controller located in the same block block the accelerator pedal in the presence of interference on the lower rung of the bus.
In 2000, the bus underwent modernization, as a result of which it began to look more modern, after that in Korea the model became known as Hyundai Super Aero City.
All models of Hyundai Aero City buses meet global environmental requirements, have European build quality and cabin comfort, while optimally combining quality and price. Carriers in many mills appreciated the performance of this bus.
