Van Hool CX Series

Expanded Features, Easy Servicing, Available In 35 and 45 Foot Models

The CX series brings Van Hool’s quality design and engineering, plus rugged reliability and the perfect flexibility to your fleet. With parts interchangeability, fleet maintenance is a lot easier.
The 35 and 45 foot models share a nearly identical design. Their high level of parts and components interchangeability drive some high-value benefits to operators. A dramatic reduction in spare parts investment is an obvious advantage, but for operators that already run the Van Hool CX45 in their fleets, the need for additional driver training and mechanic training for the CX model is greatly mitigated.

The CX35 features the same driver’s area layout, control panel and a familiar engine compartment layout – allowing drivers to confidently slip right behind the wheel while enabling quick and easy mechanical serviceability – just like the CX45.
