Iveco’s award-winning Daily on the way

Iveco’s award-winning new Daily range will soon be available in 4x2 van and cab chassis variants and boasting a number of new market-leading features and technology.

The Daily range was recently awarded the prestigious “International Van of the Year 2015” accolade at the 65th Hanover International Motor Show. In securing the award, the Daily finished 17 points clear of the other shortlisted finalists.

The new Daily impressed the expert judging panel, as stated by J. Sweeney, chairman of International Van of the Year: “In the most competitive year ever the new Iveco Daily was the number one choice of the 23 members of the jury, representing the top commercial vehicle publications across Europe and Russia.”

The latest release is the third generation of the Daily range, and was developed on a completely renewed platform featuring 80 percent new components. The new architecture raises the performance of the Daily to best-in-class levels in the single-wheel van segment.

In developing the new Daily, Iveco engineers have focused on improvements in the key areas of load space, driver comfort, and fuel efficiency. The range also boasts truck-like strength combined with car-like driving characteristics and delivers handling and load carrying capacity at the top of the category.

The new range provides quality European manufacturing and will be available in van, cab chassis and dual cab chassis variants with GVM ranging from 3.8 to 7 tonnes. Savvy business owners will also appreciate significant total cost of ownership reduction over the preceding range, achieved through fuel efficiency gains as well as a reduction in maintenance and repair costs. 

On offer is a choice of three engines ranging from 94 kW to a class-leading 153 kW. Complementing the powerful and efficient twin-turbocharged diesel engines is the availability of either a six-speed manual or the new Hi-Matic ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. Exclusive to the new Daily in its class, the Hi-Matic transmission sets new standards of versatility and cost efficiency, while guaranteeing maximum driver comfort.

The new Iveco Daily range will arrive in dealerships in the first quarter of the year. Visit your local Iveco dealer for additional information.
