VDL Bova logo.
For many years the luxury coaches of VDL BOVA have been easy to recognize by their truly individual and distinctive styling. And today, the visual impact of their characteristic design is as powerful as ever.
The Futuras have always been well constructed, reliable and comfortable, and they have consistently retained their high residual values. The growing appreciation of the qualities of these luxury coaches with their unconventional appearance has resulted in an ever-increasing number of Futuras on the road.
