SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- Van Hool and its exclusive North American distributor ABC Companies displayed new versions of their CX45 and CX35 models Jan. 7-9 during the United Motorcoach Association's annual Expo here.

At UMA Expo 2018, visitors could walk through and experience the modified coaches on exhibit, which now offer the following features:

Exterior:
Front-end redesign that integrates:
• New headlight design including new daytime running lights.
• New ACC panel
• Increased front area for customer logos
• New front bumper
• Seamless side panels without moldings
• New rear-end redesign including new tail light bezels, engine door latch, and body trim.
• All square keys have been removed
• LHS and RHS fuel fill options

Interior:
Interior upgrades include:
• New parcel rack design
• Modern LED lighting
• New overhead light service modules

Van Hool CX35 Two-door Model
A two-door option on the popular Van Hool CX35 coach was featured at UMA Expo 2018, as the company continues to capitalize on strong demand for the smaller vehicle. Since the product’s debut in early 2015, close to 400 units have been delivered.

Not only does the smaller, more fuel-efficient model enable operators to expand service by adding new passenger applications, it also offers parts interchangeability with the Van Hool CX 45-foot coach. Operators who run both models in their fleets can accrue major savings and reduced parts inventory levels thanks to interchangeable parts.
