Navigator is a 12-meter high floor luxurious coach, it is suitable for long trip, fixed tour routes and other special purposes. As the latest Golden Dragon coach model, Navigator is jointly developed by Golden Dragon Bus Company and British DCA Company. Over 3 years, the design, technology and manufacturing ability has been upgraded. 

Appearance Design

The flowing and delicate line of the body not only demonstrates the elegance but also takes the fuel-saving into consideration. Excellent complete coach drag coefficient of 0.548 makes it more perfect. LED lights are adopted for whole coach, the illuminance, low energy consumption and life span have reached the leading level. The design inspiration of the headlight comes from the sharp and smart eagle eyes. The dual light bands of the headlights and taillights add layering for the whole design.  

Passenger's Area

The interior design involves many fields such as man-machine engineering, aesthetics, optics, acoustics, material science, etc., inside the passenger compartment, the subtle ambient lights reflect on the three-dimensional roof board, and the suspending lamp bezels of the reading lights add radiance and beauty to each other.

Passenger seat adopts the design of human ergonomics, with the better leather fabric, the headrest can be adjusted up or down so as to fully fit people’s sitting posture, this will provide a comfortable experience for the passengers. Moreover, the separate Auto Cooling-and-Heating A/C Systems appropriately distribute the air ventilation to make sure the temperature is comfortable inside the coach. There are separate Auto Cooling-and-Heating A/C systems for driver’s and passengers’ area, as well as separated A/C air vent upon every seat.

NVH technologies are applied for the whole coach, it optimizes the vibration decreasing and sound insulation so as to create a quieter environment for riding. Passengers can select video programs through cell phone or tablets through the access of WIFI network.

Driver's Area 

The strictest standard is applied for the design of the driver’s visual field, so as to bring a wider vision. The design of Driver’s area comes from Man-machine engineering, the dashboard and buttons are precisely designed to be easily observed, all equipment are properly distributed for the driver’s operation. 12.3” LCD screen dashboard displays more contents and individual man-machine intercommunication; it is combined with the functions of air conditioning, music, GPS, blue tooth, internet of vehicles, etc., more easily operated and clearly displayed. The functions of radio, Bluetooth play and communication can be operated in the driver’s area with separate audio system.

Rotatable driver seat is easily accessed by driver and it relieves driving fatigue with the functions of ventilation, massage, etc. Automatic start, ATM, electric parking brake, separate audio system and A/C system in driver’s area, all these create easy environment for driving and make the travel safer. 

Dynamic System

The safety, reliability, comfort and service convenience of Navigator’s chassis and dynamic system all reach the world first class, there are several optional plans for the dynamic system, and this model is aiming at the Asian and Chinese market, at the beginning of the development, we have considered the European standard and compatibility, and in the future, we would like to launch a model which is suitable for the European market.

The current dynamic system used Mercedes-Benz’s OM 457LA engine, GO240-8 AMT transmission and free-maintenance rear axle, Voith hydraulic retarder and integrated side-placed water tank, all these make the Navigator possess many advantages, such as, more power, few fuel consumption, low noises and maintenance cost etc.

Mercedes-Benz’s engine has advantages of long working life, convenient maintenance and low malfunction rate, its max power is 295kw/1900rpm, the max torque is 2000N.m, and the max grade ability is 58%, it takes only 21 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 70km/h. Voith’s hydraulic retarder with the max torque of 3000N.m, which effectively reduces the braking distance and prolongs the service life of the brake shoes, makes the braking safer.
