Iveco Daily (2014–)

Last updated 17 April 2019

The Daily is a hugely capable van, which majors on carrying capacity. In fact, no other van comes close to matching the Daily’s load lugging ability, with the Iveco offering a maximum gross vehicle weight of 7.2-tonnes and maximum load volume of 19.6 cubic metres.

The ladder-frame construction makes the Daily a suitable platform for converters, with the truck derived chassis well-suited to tipper, box, refrigeration and crew cab configurations.

The van line-up consists of five vehicle lengths (5040mm – 7500mm), three load heights (1545mm - 2100mm) and a large choice of load volumes. Gross vehicle weights start at 3.5-tonnes with 7.3 cubic meters of load volume available and rises all the way to a class leading 19.6m3. In its largest form, the Daily will provide a load area that measures 5.1 metres long and 2.1 metres high with the bulkhead in place, which is more than almost any other large van on sale.

Access to the load bay is easy, thanks to a 55mm reduction in load height compared to the old model, which means less lifting is needed to fill the huge load area. A single side sliding door is fitted as standard and all models will take a standard Euro pallet (1200mm x 800mm) through either the rear or side doors.

There are some criticisms when it comes to cabin quality, with the interior feeling cheap, drab and unsophisticated, especially compared to the car-like interiors of the Ford Transit and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. However, the workman-like dashboard and trim will find favour with operators and drivers who like a no-nonsense and simple design.

There are plenty of storage areas, although none of the dash mounted boxes have a 12v socket. We also found the seats to obstruct some of the door pockets, which makes it difficult to reach their contents. However, the in-van controls are easy to find and use, while the optional touchscreen navigation is one of the best you’ll find in a van of this size. 

The Iveco options list is comprehensive, which means upgrading the Daily is easy, with wider wheel arches, a reversing camera and lane departure warning all available. The load area can also be improved, with an extra sliding door, load area lining and reinforced rear suspension.
