Introduction

What Car? says...

If you follow the progress of the Iveco Daily, you might notice that it tends to receive rather regular updates. The latest includes a new, larger grille to improve cooling, new cleaner engines and revised headlights with the option of LEDs. There’s also been a minor but significant change to the rear suspension, new electronic steering to enable more safety features, and a revised interior. 

Available from 3.3 tonnes to 7.2 tonnes, the Iveco Daily comes with a choice of 2.3-litre or 3.0-litre engines, both of which meet the Euro-6D emissions regulations. Power for these ranges from 116bhp to 210bhp, with up to 347lb ft of torque. There’s also the option of a 3.0-litre compressed natural gas (CNG) engine, producing 136bhp and 258lb ft. A fully electric version of the van is also available. A six-speed manual gearbox is standard on all but the electric van, and an eight-speed automatic called HiMatic is optional.

As well as panel van variants, Iveco also produce the Daily as a chassis cab, as crew vans with seating for up to seven, and as a range of minibuses for up to 22 passengers. There are also four-wheel-drive models available in variants of up to 7.2 tonnes with single or twin wheels, and with locking differentials for the front, centre and rear.

Iveco doesn't offer specific trim packages that increase in spec as the price increases. Instead there's a range of option packages that can be combined and have been tailored to suit typical needs of its customers. With Delivery, Delivery+, Construction, Businesses, Business Exclusive, Winter and Hi-Drive packs available, more than 7000 variations on the Iveco daily theme are offered.

That makes for a very diverse range, and it needs to in order to compete against such a broad spectrum of rivals, including the Volkswagen Crafter, Ford Transit and Mercedes Sprinter, as well as the Peugeot Boxer, Citroen Relay, Renault Master, Fiat Ducato and Nissan NV400
