These include intelligent braking systems, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and electronic stability program. The TopClass 500 also uses the AquaBlade windshield wiper system, which distributes the washer fluid along the edge of the wiper blade. Like the previous generation of Setra coaches, the ComfortClass 500 features Front Collision Guard which incorporates underrun protection, energy absorption, and driver's module that is pushed rearwards in a collision.
