The Scania L113CRL is the first low-entry chassis introduced as a public bus in Singapore. However its "Strider" bodywork does not make use of this feature in order to allocate space for the Hispacold underfloor air-conditioning, and a step can be found at both the entrance and exit doors. In contrast, the later batch of L113CRL buses with ELBO bodywork had a step-free entrance.
Each SMRT "Strider" is powered by the Scania DSC1171 engine (11,020cc) that is Euro I compliant and fitted with 4-speed ZF 4HP500 automatic transmission. They were originally fitted with flip-dot EDS from Lawo Luminator Europa (now simply known as LAWO), and are typically seen on suburban routes in the northern and western parts of Singapore. The last unit of this model was retired from service by December 2014.
