The vehicle that defined passenger and cargo transportation in South Africa has done it again. The latest Quantum guarantees practicality and comfort levels with reinvented power delivery (plus a bigger turbodiesel engine), extra convenience and cargo carrying ability, added safety features and an ultra-modern new look.

The biggest departure from the previous Quantum model is undoubtedly the change from a ‘cab-over’ to ‘semi-bonnet’ design. The new design provides for a more spacious interior and modernised look with enhanced aerodynamics. This stylish revision to Quantum has increased the overall length and passenger space, with improved leg room and seating comfort.

The character line along the side design flows dynamically rearwards from the front extending to the rear. The rear design highlights the Quantum’s purposeful wide stance. Similarly, the generously-sized bumper, large combination tail lamps and aerodynamically-designed chamfered corners create a simple and functional impression.

The Quantum range comprises new panel van and bus derivatives, with the option of 3-seater panel vans in long wheelbase (LWB) and heightened-roof super-long wheelbase (SLWB) configurations, as well as a six-seater long wheelbase (LWB) crew cab. The ‘GL’ Bus range offers 11-seater long wheel base (LWB) and 14-seater super long wheelbase (SLWB) versions.

All models have evolved from the cab-over configuration and now feature the all-new semi-bonnet body type with excellent safety features, dynamic new engines and a more comfortable and quieter ride for a relaxed traveling experience.

Whatever cargo you’re transporting, the new-generation Quantum is built to get you there and handle any turn without any spills. The suspension and its peripheral parts of the undercarriage have been renewed, and the engine relocated in a semi-bonnet configuration. This helps provide a powerful, stable and quiet ride, for sustained comfort even on long commutes.

The four-cylinder, 2.8-litre turbodiesel engine delivers maximum power of 130 kW @ 3400 r/min and peak torque of 420 Nm @ 1400 - 2600 r/min, on all panel vans and the 11-seater bus model. The 14-seater bus delivers power of 115 kW @ 3600 r/min and peak torque of 420 Nm @ 1600-2200 r/min.

The new Quantum is equipped with various active and passive safety technologies. The Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) ensure that the maximum braking power is produced without locking the tyres and distributes optimal braking force to the left and right wheels.

Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) suppresses a sudden loss of vehicle stability during cornering; and when on an incline the Hill-Assist Control (HAC) system will temporarily keep the vehicle from rolling back.

Spacious seating measurements have been attained by increasing the cabin length and width for better legroom and headroom. The colours, patterns, and shapes are coordinated throughout the interior to create a traveling space with an open feel. The seat material on the GL Bus models is presented in natural beige with a combination of synthetic leather and fabric. The Panel Van range seats are fashioned in grey fabric.
