Fuso has unveiled an all new look for its venerable and popular Rosa bus, the first external makeover for the bus in 21 years. 

AS well as a new face it is understood the new Rosa also will be powered by the three litre turbo diesel used in the company’s Canter truck models. The 4P10 (T6) three litre produces 129KW and is mated to the six speed Duonic 2.0  transmission for the 28+1 seat Rosa.

Fuso says the design language integrates the “Fuso black belt” an element that it says enhances the Fuso logo and signals the new brand identity of upcoming Fuso vehicles and features optimised headlamps and new LED fog lamps.

While Daimler sources would not indicate when we might see the updated Rosa here in Australia however Truck and Bus News understands we could see it here in early 2020.

 Daimler Trucks Asia (DTA) which controls the Fuso brand has the new Rosa bus available on sale across Japan now.
