The new Iveco Daily is built on a truck derived ladder frame chassis and in fact is more a small truck than a van. Having said that, it drives more like a car than a truck. If you need a robust commercial vehicle for heavy work the Daily would be the one for you.
Having one of the largest bodies of any van the cargo space ranges from 7.3m3 to a whopping 17.2m3 for the 3950 wheelbase, however if you want a van within the 3.5t GVW, the large body and heavy ladder frame means payloads suffer with the largest panel van having a payload of just over 1 tonne.

If you need the space and the payload then you better have an operator’s licence as the Daily only achieves it if you opt for the 5.2 or 7.0t GWV.
There are two diesel engines with various power outputs ranging from 106hp to 205hp to choose from; the 2.3 litre and the 3.0 litre with the 2.3 litre 146bhp engine being the best all-rounder.
The cab looks a bit dated but is of reasonable quality with features such as electric windows, remote central locking and dual-passenger seat with a pull out table included as standard. The Daily Plus adds TomTom sat-nav, cruise control and heated electric mirrors and Daily Top with even more goodies. A good robust van that’s made for hard work although it is a bit dated and with so many variants, you need to choose carefully.

In addition to the final price being extremely competitive, the entire process was absolutely painless. So much so, made me question why previous vehicle purchases were so laborious!Michael, Claire, Adam and Albi – Commercial Catering Contracts LTD.
I am always a little apprehensive when buying a new vehicle. What is the best model for my needs?, Which is the most appropriate funding solution? Am I getting a good deal? etc. Totally Vans gave me all of the facts and enabled me to make an informed and confident decision. Antony Cockerell - AR18
