ERGONOMIC CABIN LAYOUT
The Hino 700 Series cabin is one of the most inviting workplaces in the heavy-duty class, boasting class leading features and equipment.
It begins with cabin entry. Enhanced access door steps offer greater ease and safety of entry and exit to the 700 Series. The doors open 90 degrees and the deep grab handles are self-cleaning to prevent slipping in poor weather.
All of Hino’s 700 Series heavy duty trucks have the fully air adjustable ISRI 6860/870 Series seat with fully integrated seat-mounted seatbelt. The seat can be configured to the body type of almost any driver and provides the ultimate in cabin comfort.
Foot and leg space has been further increased by raising the lower edge of the instrument panel.
Hino 700 Series' features include a floor-mounted auto-shift lever, for a more natural shift feel.
There's a new, easy-to-read backlit instrument cluster with multi-information display, improved switch operability and increased storage space.
Storage space includes a wide free rack, bottle holders, convenience hooks and at least two spare DIN spaces in the centre of the dashboard.
There's also door pockets, centre console storage, a centre-seat tray and overhead console.
HINO MULTIMEDIA UNIT
The Hino multimedia system on 700 Series heavy duty trucks boasts an extensive list of advanced features such as DAB+ digital radio, which provides AM and FM radio with CD quality sound, exclusive digital-only stations and exclusive news information.
Hino was the first truck manufacturer in the world to offer DAB+ digital radio capability as standard equipment across its model range.
Other features include a 6.1-inch high-definition touch-screen, conventional AM/FM radio receivers, CD and DVD player, USB input for connecting portable audio players and an SD card reader for accessing digital photographs, video and audio files.
The system also features the latest Bluetooth™ hands-free phone connectivity with voice dialling and full phone book functionality, as well as A2DP audio file Bluetooth™ streaming functionality.
In addition, there is the option of up to three reversing cameras, with the image displayed on the integrated 2DIN LCD screen.
Hino’s multimedia system is also available with the option of a special truck-specific satellite navigation system – which features notification of load-limited roads, as well as having the capability for input of multiple destinations, making life easier for delivery drivers and couriers on the job.
Hino’s multimedia system is also available as an after-market accessory for all older Hino models with 2-Din accessory mounting provision.
ISRI DRIVER'S SEAT FOR COMFORT AND SAFETY
Designed in Europe and universally accepted as the best seat on the market, the ISRI 6860/870 Series seat is fully air adjustable and can be configured to the body type of almost any driver.
The ISRI 6860/870 seat’s height, rake, cushion tilt, backrest, lumbar support, side bolsters and weight setting can all be adjusted by the driver using easy-to reach controls on the side of the seat.
As an added comfort feature, the ISRI seat selected by Hino features a fully integrated seat-mounted seatbelt.
This means the seatbelt adjusts with the motion of the driver to prevent the painful belt-tightening that can occur with cheaper, pillar-mounted belts.
The seat also features a unique dual-stage Integrated Pneumatic System (IPS) to control lumbar support and side bolsters, using compressed air sourced from the truck’s onboard air supply.
The seat automatically senses the weight of the driver, unlike other styles of seat that require each driver to manually "dial in” their weight.
CRASH SAFETY AND FUPS
Hino 700 Series occupants have the peace of mind of knowing their truck’s cabin meets the internationally recognised European Structural Standards Regulation No. 20 (ECE-R29) for cabin strength.
In addition to this certification, the Hino 700 Series SH variant has (as standard) four-wheel disc brakes with Electronic Brake System, ABS anti-skid brakes and Vehicle Stability Control, and electric and heated exterior mirrors.
The FUPS technology is incorporated in the 700 Series trucks’ standard bumper bar and protects other motorists by preventing their vehicle from becoming trapped and crushed under the front of the truck in the event of a front-on collision.
FUPS provides additional protection for the truck’s steering components to help the driver maintain control and come to a controlled stop, while also assisting in the deployment of the opposing vehicle’s airbags.
Hino FUPS is certified to Australian Design Rule ADR 84 and European Safety Standard UN ECE-93.
