Edi­tion blue for Iveco

Owner Driver - - Tech Briefs -

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.
