We’ve just taken delivery of the first of our Facelifted MY19 Generation IVECO Daily chassis – The platform has been upgraded to incorporate a brace of new assistance technologies such as lane guidance and automatic braking, an updated dashboard with clearer driver information and a new electronic power steering system with ‘City’ mode that makes manoeuvring these large vehicles easy.
Externally the upgrade is marked by larger, more distinctive headlights and a deeper new front bumper that tie the vehicle in with the design language of the full range of IVECO LGV and HGV vehicles and gives real road presence once converted into a passenger carrying vehicle
A large number of our initial stock order has sold already, but there are a limited number of chassis available for customisation, with build schedules underway we’re anticipating completion and delivery for the Middle > End of Q1 2020. Order now to avoid disappointment.
2019/20 MY Specification
Following customer feedback we’ve ordered all stock with the excellent ‘Hi-Matic’ ZF Sourced 8 Speed torque converter automatic gearbox which is mated to the exceptional F1C 3.0l I4 engine, here rated at 180ps – when combined this gives impressive flexibility and acceleration, whilst the 8 ratios allow for low engine RPM’s during partial load and thus help the vehicle achieve impressive fuel economy.
This has resulted in a £2,000 price rise compared to 2018/19 MY listings (see examples elsewhere) but provides a significantly improved driving experience, reduced workload in urban situations, reduced fuel economy and crucially a higher projected residual value moving forward following the trend for Automatic gearboxes to be in higher demand.
We also specify the vehicles from factory with a range of options tailored towards their role as a Luxury Minicoach, these upgrades include; Dashboard Air Conditioning, DAB Radio (with USB, Bluetooth & Aux connectivity), Electrically Adjustable & Heated Mirrors, Multifunction Steering wheel with Cruise Control, 270º Opening Glazed Rear Doors, Heated Windscreen, Enlarged 100l Fuel Tank and crucially an upgraded drivers seat with Lumbar, Armrest & Padded Headrest.
Our standard front entrance Minicoach conversion includes a drop step entrance, full length side skirts and tinted inset glazing, whilst inside we trim the vehicle in luxury soft touch portland star fabric and install fixed back semi-high back coach seats trimmed in moquette, vinyl or cloth to your choice. Elsewhere a diesel heater, Day/Night LED lights, show curtains and overhead luggage racks fitted with individual service units with forced air and LED reading lights provide a comfortable travelling experience for all passengers with no wheel arch intrusion and ample knee room in each row.
A wide rage of upgrades are available across the board, including rear AC, SEGE or Polytechnica reclining and/or leather trimmed seating, USB charging ports, entertainment systems and wheelchair access to name but a few.

16 Passenger Seat Conversion = From £51,995

Extended at the factory both in length and height – this chassis provides greater flexibility and allows for either increased cargo capacity or if utilising the full length for seating upto 22 passengers without compromise on knee room or seat width – The H3 roof provides full height standing room throughout the length of the interior, making it ideal for flat floor wheelchair conversions, deeper luggage racks and a surplus of headroom.
