The What Van? Road Test: Iveco Daily Hi-Matic (2019)

Date: Thursday, May 21, 2020   |   Author: Steve Banner

Iveco has revamped the 3.5-7.2t Daily with a new, larger front grille to boost airflow to the engine, optional LED headlights, a three-piece front bumper, increased performance from the 3.0-litre diesel offered alongside the smaller 2.3-litre, an optional electric parking brake, and a mountain of connectivity and safety packages.

They include advanced emergency braking system and city brake pro, which react if there is a hazard looming and the driver fails to hit the brakes on time.

Power outputs range from 160hp to 210hp if you opt for the 3.0-litre, and 116hp to 156hp if you favour the 2.3-litre. Urban fuel savings are said to be up by 10%, while maintenance costs are said to be down by the same amount. Mention should also be made of the compressed natural gas 2.3-litre with 136hp on tap.

We tested a Daily 35S14A8V 3.5t van with a 10.8m3 load area and a 136hp 2.3-litre diesel married to the optional – and very impressive – eight-speed Hi-Matic automatic gearbox.
