Edition blue for Iveco
TO CELEBRATE the Daily Blue Power being named International Van of the Year 2018, Iveco has launched a limited edition ‘Blue’-inspired model in Australia, which it says will provide customers with extra benefits along with the eye-catching colour treatment.
Available exclusively on the Daily 35S17 van (3520mm wheelbase and 12-cubic-metre van capacity), the Blue Edition comes with an extended five-year/200,000km factory warranty. If the vehicle is financed through Iveco financier CNH Industrial Capital, buyers will also receive five years/200,000km of free scheduled servicing.
The Daily Blue boasts a white exterior paintwork with electric blue grille, distinctive blue headlight edges, blue alloy wheels and special edition badging. The theme continues on the inside with blue steering wheel stitching, unique headrests and a blue transmission shifter that complements the blue dashboard that comes standard in models fitted with the Iveco Hi-Matic eight-speed full automatic transmission. The automatic transmission is coupled to Iveco’s three-litre turbodiesel engine which produces 170hp (130kW) of power and 430Nm of torque.
Other standard features include the Iveconnect multimedia system, a reversing buzzer and fog lamps. Also included is a suspended driver’s seat with bench for two passengers and automatic climate control.
The Daily Blue features the front and rear disc brakes with ABS and Iveco ‘ESP 9’ safety program which includes Electronic Stability Program and a host of other active safety equipment. Passive safety features include four SRS airbags.
“Only 100 examples have been made available and Iveco is confident that they’ll be snapped up quickly by discerning buyers,” Iveco Australia marketing manager Darren Swenson says.
