A report issued by the German inspection association, TÜV, confirms: that the MAN TGX EfficientLine 3 uses 6.35% less fuel on Europe’s roads than its predecessor. This was also demonstrated in a comparative test drive across Europe in July 2016.Watch the video
Economical to the last drop: Thanks to the further development of the driveline, series-standard efficiency systems and consumption-optimised motorisation, the MAN TGX EfficientLine 3 will help you further reduce your total operating costs.
We know that fuel consumption makes up almost a third of your total expenses. This is why our savings champion uses up to 6.35 % less fuel than its predecessor.
Additional fuel savings can be achieved with our efficient gearshift programme which helps reduce engine speed. International comparison tests also confirm that, with our MAN TGX EfficientLine 3, you don’t need to worry today about the costs of tomorrow. Leave your competition behind when it comes to expenses and reap the benefits of the economy of our profit-maximising truck. For an efficiency balance that will improve your overall balance sheet in long-haul transport.
An engine fit for our fuel-saving champion: High performance and extremely economical at the same time. The MAN D26 engine series for the MAN TGX EfficientLine 3 is available in three different performance levels up to 510 HP. Thanks to the new combustion concept “soft AGR”, the reduced ancillary engine power output and a simplified cooling system with direct air-air charge-air cooling, the efficiency level of the engine was increased even further. Allowing you to drive up your profits efficiently and cleanly.
Thanks to our automatic gearbox, MAN TipMatic®, you can shift down another gear when it comes to costs. It automatically recognises your truck’s payload and slope conditions and optimises the gearshifting strategy based on this. Our cost-saving FLEET version is offered for large fleets where drivers change frequently. It limits manual interventions, helping to avoid erroneous operation. Your benefits: minimisation of wear, a protected driveline and reduced fuel consumption.
With intelligent powertrain management and an optional efficient gearshift program, you can reduce fuel consumption even further: the smart reduction of the average engine speed, in combination with increased driving stretches in higher gears and fewer gearshifts, reduces fuel consumption at approximately constant average speed.
The MAN TGX EfficientLine 3 can really get into gear with the MAN TipMatic® and the clever gearshift program.

In your MAN TGX EfficientLine 3, the smart interplay between assistance systems and vehicle provides optimum performance in terms of efficiency.
Predictive driving while saving on fuel costs: an easy task for the MAN TGX EfficientLine 3. Not just under ideal conditions but on any journey. Among many other factors, our gearbox automation system MAN TipMatic® also considers the weight of the load and the incline of the road when switching gears.
The GPS-guided cruise control system MAN EfficientCruise® calculates the most fuel-efficient driving mode up to three kilometres in advance.
Additional fuel savings are effected by MAN EfficientRoll. Together with MAN EfficientCruise®, the MAN EfficientRoll function uses the slopes along the road to gather momentum for the next incline.
To ensure that you benefit from ultimate performance, we have implemented innovative solutions to make the MAN TGX EfficientLine 3 even lighter. In addition, the Aero package considerably reduces the air resistance of your vehicle.
Defy the wind: you can save up to 5% on fuel with the aeropackage from MAN. Roof spoilers, side panels and side flaps decrease air resistance even further while driving. The free space between the cab and the body is almost entirely closed off thanks to these additional panel elements. The result: an effective, aerodynamic air flow around the entire vehicle.
Your daily business will get much easier with us: We have managed to refine the MAN TGX EfficientLine 3 by using the lightest materials without compromising on stability. Whether it be an aluminium construction or lightweight plastics, with us you will never be carrying around too much weight. You can also save additional weight as the replacement tyre is no longer needed, meaning you can load up to an additional 500 kg payload.
The series standard efficiency equipment that comes with our efficiency wonder is also available for all other TGX models, as well as the MAN TGS*. Simply choose from one of the four EfficientLine 3 packages. We offer the ideal solution for every challenge; be that decreasing friction losses and air resistance, improving ancillary power requirements or ensuring a lower empty weight. Customised, according to your wishes. Discover an overview of the four EfficientLine 3 package options here:
*The EfficientLine 3 package is only available for MAN TGX/TGS 4x2 semitrailer tractors with the new MAN engines in Euro 6d.
**The aluminium compressed-air tank cannot be combined with the MAN TipMatic 14 gearbox or the compact battery box.

The Spanish trade publication ‘transporte mundial’ put it through a field test. They put the current vehicle models from three manufacturers through rigorous testing: the MAN TGX EfficientLine 3, the Volvo FH-500 and the Scania S500. The question: which model takes the lead in terms of fuel efficiency? The result: the MAN TGX EfficientLine 3 is way ahead when it comes to fuel efficiency.
We could have guessed it already: During the test round conducted by Transport Mundial, the MAN TGX EfficientLine 3 impressed with the lowest average consumption levels of all the vehicles ever tested to date.
The Spanish trade magazine also sent the Volvo FH-500 and, last but not least, the newly launched Scania S500 out onto the test track. The result of the three runs, which were carried out under largely similar test conditions, showed that the MAN TGX EfficientLine 3 clearly outperformed both competitors when it came to fuel efficiency (diesel and AdBlue fluid consumption).
The Transporte Mundial test track is 912 kilometres long in total, stretching across terrain of varying height, from sea level to 1200 metres above sea level. The Spanish trade magazine sends all vehicles onto the test track with an approximate gross train weight of 40 tonnes, including semitrailers. The MAN TGX EfficientLine 3 broke the test course record for fuel efficiency at 27.9 litres per 100 kilometres. The MAN TGX also achieved by far the lowest value for AdBlue fluid consumption.
The demanding test proves it: You’re at least one car length ahead of the competition with us and our economical models.
