The Iveco Daily van and cab-chassis models have been updated for 2016, with extra safety equipment and different body styles now on offer.

Iveco – which is better known for its trucks than it is for its commercial vans – offers the Daily model in its ranks as an alternative to the likes of the Ford Transit, Fiat Ducato, Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and Renault Master.

As with those aforementioned, better-known models, the Iveco Daily has a complex and somewhat confusing model range consisting of vans, cab-chassis single-cab and dual-cab variants.

Depending on the version you choose, there are three engines available in the Daily range: a 2.3-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel (with 93kW and 320Nm), a 3.0-litre turbo diesel (with 125kW/430Nm) and a 3.0-litre twin-turbo diesel (150kW/470Nm).

Interestingly, that latter twin-turbo diesel can be had as a $2000 option with every van model, which, in the smallest of the van bodies listed below, would make for a mighty offering.

The 35S13 has a fixed 3800kg GVM, while the 50C17 can be had in 4495kg or optional 5200kg forms. The higher GVM adds a dual rear-wheel layout.

The cab-chassis versions include three single-cab models – the 45C17 ($48,843) and 50C17 ($53,605) models have a 3.0-litre turbo diesel; and the 70C17 ($60,345) gets a twin-turbo diesel. Then there are the dual-cab-chassis models, including the single-turbo diesel 50C17 ($67,516) and the twin-turbo version ($69,552).

A six-speed manual is standard, but the talking point for the Daily range is the eight-speed automatic gearbox, which costs $3895.

Electronic stability control is standard on all models ordered from January 1, while parking sensors are available on select models. Vans ordered from June 1 will have a reversing camera as standard, while cab-chassis models will have it as an option.

There are many other options on offer for the van, including dual sliding rear doors ($1276); glass in the side sliding door ($528 for kerbside only; $2332 for dual glazed doors); air suspension ($3025); a pneumatic, heated driver’s seat ($248, also available for passenger at the same price but sees the removal of the third seat).
