We are thrilled to introduce a significant upgrade in safety and comfort to our customers.”

The revamped interior of the Canter now mirrors the cabin of the eCanter, featuring a contemporary aesthetic with functional enhancements. A centerpiece of the upgrade is the 6.95-inch touchscreen radio, offering DAB+ reception and compatibility with Apple CarPlayTM and Android Auto. A user-friendly multifunction steering wheel provides easy control of the new digital LCD instrument panel, maintaining the Canter’s reputation for low interior noise levels, excellent visibility, and accessibility.

Furthermore, Canter’s fuel tank is now crafted from robust plastic, while on-board tools and jack are stored in external boxes on the frame. The Canter also boasts a fleet management interface as standard, enhancing operational efficiency.

The Canter undergoes a comprehensive safety overhaul, with additional sensors and cameras enhancing protection for occupants and pedestrians. The updated Active Brake Assist 6 (ABA 6) now detects moving and stationary vehicles, crossing pedestrians, bicycles, and motionless pedestrians. Blind Spot Information System (BSIS), Attention Assist, and Intelligent Speed Assistance are among the eight new or updated safety features ensuring comprehensive coverage from all directions.
