Giant van joins Iveco Daily range

New Zealand LCV - - 2017 VAN GUIDE | IVECO DAILY -

IVECO HAS ADDED A GIANT SEVEN-TONNE GVM VER­SION OF its Daily Van to its New Zealand light com­mer­cial ve­hi­cle range.

The 70C uses a Euro 6 ver­sion of the Iveco 3.0-litre tur­bod­iesel, de­vel­op­ing 185kw of max­i­mum power and 430Nm of peak torque.

It achieves the Euro 6 emis­sion stan­dard with a Se­lec­tive Cat­alytic Re­duc­tion (SCR) sys­tem us­ing Ad­blue, and the van has a 25-litre Ad­blue tank.

The 70C has a mas­sive 20 cu­bic me­tres of cargo ca­pac­ity and rides on a 4100mm wheel­base. It has an over­all length of 7619mm, and a height of 3050mm. It can tow a 3.5-tonne trailer and has a pay­load of 3.9 tonnes.

The cargo area floor is made of ribbed steel and the in­te­rior walls are re­in­forced. A sin­gle slid­ing side door is stan­dard but dual doors are an op­tion, and the barn-style rear doors open to a max­i­mum of 270 de­grees

The big van, which Iveco says is the largest van sold in New Zealand, is the first of sev­eral Euro 6 Dai­lys that will join the lo­cal range over the next few months.

Iveco says all 2017 model Daily Euro 5 and Euro 6 vans and cab/chas­sis use al­most one per­cent less fuel than their pre­de­ces­sors.

That’s been achieved by adopt­ing lower vis­cos­ity syn­thetic oils, en­gi­neer­ing tighter con­struc­tion tol­er­ances and by fit­ting low fric­tion bear­ings and pin­ion seals.

On the safety front, Iveco’s Lane De­par­ture Warn­ing Sys­tem has been in­tro­duced as an added-cost op­tion on 4x2 mod­els. Us­ing radar, the sys­tem warns the driver if the ve­hi­cle is mov­ing from its lane, re­duc­ing the chance of col­li­sion.

All 4x2 mod­els con­tinue to fea­ture four airbags, and the Iveco ESP9 safety pack­age which in­cludes Elec­tronic Brake force Dis­tri­bu­tion, Elec­tronic Sta­bil­ity Pro­gram, Anti Slip Reg­u­la­tor and a host of ad­di­tional driver aids is also fit­ted.

Iveco en­gi­neers have also in­tro­duced tougher seat ma­te­rial and lamp com­pounds for in­creased dura­bil­ity.

In the cabin, there’s a re­vised in­stru­ment clus­ter, a stan­dard top-of-dash­board open stor­age area with USB charger and fur­ther op­tions in­clud­ing an in­duc­tive charger. New door panel lower draw­ers are stan­dard.

Noise in the cabin has been low­ered by three deci­bels by fit­ting im­proved sound­proof­ing.

New model Dai­lys have a re­vised grille de­sign that fea­tures hor­i­zon­tal bars. The grilles come stan­dard with chrome high­lights, and black is avail­able at no added cost.

Re­vised twin wheel hub cov­ers for the 35C and 50C van and cab/chas­sis have also been in­tro­duced to fur­ther lift looks, and a se­lec­tion of alu­minium wheels and cov­ers are avail­able on cer­tain mod­els.

On the 3.5-tonne and 5.2-tonne Daily vans there’s a new 13.4 cu­bic me­tre vol­ume op­tion that has been achieved by re­tain­ing the 3520mm wheel­base but in­creas­ing the height to 2100mm. There’s now a greater avail­abil­ity of airbag rear sus­pen­sion on Daily mod­els.

Stan­dard across the range is Iveco’s mul­ti­me­dia sys­tem, Ive­con­nect which com­prises a seven-inch colour screen dis­play, Blue­tooth con­nec­tiv­ity, Usb/aux-in me­dia trans­fer, voice recog­ni­tion and nav­i­ga­tion soft­ware.

As an added cost op­tion, Ive­con­nect can be spec­i­fied with a rear cam­era and can be set-up to con­trol phone calls and the au­dio sys­tem from the steer­ing wheel.
