Quaranta says an optional pack features items such as hydraulic retarder, lane departure warning and driver attention support which monitors the driver’s level of attention with various factors and plain warnings if his attention actually drops or the vehicle changes lanes without indicating.
There’s also a tyre pressure monitoring system which Quaranta says provides real time information about the level of pressure in the tyres, warning the driver of any pressure loss.
“Newly designed cluster with easy reading and high visibility, and automatic climate control are just some of the features of the cab,” Quaranta continues.
Add to that the Iveconnect multimedia system, revised steering wheel-mounted controls and leather air suspended seats, and Iveco has come up with an impressive package.
Bruce Healy believes the new Stralis X-Way range will not only strengthen Iveco’s position in the Australian truck market but consolidate Iveco’s local manufacturing future.
“A combination of advanced safety features, cleaner and more efficient Euro 6 engines, smart transmissions and a range of equipment to minimise fuel use will make the Stralis X-Way a valuable addition to any fleet, from the owner-driver to larger multinationals.”
