Iveco don't make cars, in fact they don't make light vans either. Their expertise lies in big vans and trucks, so if you're after something a little more robust, then they could be a good place to start. The Iveco Daily is the van of choice for Tesco and Asda home delivery services and the same van was awarded ‘Best large van’ 2016 by What Van?
The Iveco Daily van has recently been completely redesigned. The vans can carry anything from 7 to 20 cubic metres and the seven tonne version has a whopping payload of up to 4,000kg.
The Daily has a mind-blowing 8,000 variations, with options on length, height, wheel base, engine size and type, chassis, cab size and more.
On the panel van, to make loading and unloading easier Iveco have dropped the load platform by 55mm. The chassis van allows for a variety of styles, like dropside, tipper or luton.
Eight gears with Hi-Matic versions
The Daily Hi-Matic is a luxury version of the standard van. It comes in three models – the Urban, the Regional and the International. They're all equipped with a Hi-Matic 8 speed automatic gear box which Iveco say makes for fantastic driving – the 'Urban' is suited for shorter runs in a city environment due to its ‘self-adapting’ gear shift, which automatically adjusts the gear shifting settings based on 20 different settings.
The 'Regional' might be good for longer spells of driving due to its Eco mode offers increased fuel economy, or Power mode which provides power. The 'International' is designed for businesses that use vans to drive long distances. Driver comfort, drivability and fuel economy are at the forefront of the design.
Insuring your Iveco
So, there appears to be plenty of options to choose from when it comes to buying a new Iveco Daily van – if you like them there's sure to be a design to fit your business needs.
Next you'll want to compare van insurance quotes to see how the Iveco weighs up.
As it's likely to be a business vehicle (unless you have a personal penchant for big utilitarian vans) you'll need to make sure you include 'business use' on your insurance policy – without it your insurance could be invalidated if you need to make a claim.
Also, as it's a business asset, insuring it fully comprehensive could make sense – that will give you peace of mind if it's involved in an accident as the damage to the van will be covered. A third party policy would only cover other people’s property or any injuries they sustain.
