A coach is a business and of course a profit centre. At Harris Higer we have created a coach that fulfils your bottom line. With the best possible
value for money, fuel efficiency and comfort we believe the Super 9 ticks all of the required financial boxes. The extras on the bus are vast and
impressive and come as standard.As we say at Harris Higer "Every cent counts and we make sense of your cents"
The Super 9 has been designed in Ireland for the Irish and UK markets. What does this mean to you as an owner or as an operator ?First o, it ensures the Harris Group is here to protect the customer and moreover to bring stability and reassurance with parts, technical assistance and all the assets required to maintain and grow the Higer brand.
When the Super 9 was designed the basic spec of the vehicle was predetermined by what the bus and coach industry told usthey wanted in a midi coach. We then insisted the vehicle components used in the construction of the coach would be fromblue chip suppliers. Many of the parts used are from internationally renowned suppliers with dedicated supply routes inIreland and the UK, making parts supply simple not just today but also into the future..When you see products like Cummins Engine, Allison Gearbox, Firestone airbags, Wabco braking system and electronics ,Spheros AC system, Isringhausen driver's seat, Michelin tyres and many more renowned brands, then you can understand we have built the Super 9 to be a leader not a follower!
At Harris Higer, we do.The driver's seat should be the best seat in the house or the coach in our case. Right in front of you is the ellipsoid dashboard with easy to read instruments, in the centre the drivers information display system allows you to use the onboard computer to display vehicle data and control a whole host of other functions including access to the on-board diagnosis system and other information devices.
That's why at Harris Higer we believe Professional drivers will appreciate the ergonomically optimised workplace we have created that makes the drivers job easier and enables you to concentrate on driving, turning your working environment into a comfortable space designed for you...

What defines a luxury coach today? Is it the manufacturer,the brand, design, ride quality, or advanced technology not found in other vehicles? Or is it simply a matter o fprice – that is the willingness of a consumer to pay a premium for the status associated with certain brands?Only you can answer that question honestly because weall have our own outlook on what is important to our business model, our corporate situation and ourcustomers requirements.It is fair to state that the term “Luxury” ultimately has a cost, however with the Super 9 we have included the luxury touches at no extra charge, creating a premium traveling environment, in doing this we have made Luxury a no cost standard now that's sophisticated !
Comfort begins with the visual perception of the interior of a coach, so all Super 9 coaches have been fitted with a number of mood light settings changing from soft blue to brilliant white, at the ick of a switch. Blue LED overhead marker lights oer passengers a point of reference when it's dark this is due to the indirect lighting concept that creates a pleasant sense of space activated by the auto headlights on function. Natural light is filtered by the UV protection system fitted to the tinted glass in the Super 9, helping to ensure the passenger compartment is protected from harmful UV rays and ensuring that all available daylight is used to brighten up the passenger compartment.There are two separately operable reading lamps above each seat for your convenience.
