Entry-spec Daily Start gets ahead with Fishwick

Entry-level Iveco Daily Start has gone first to dealership David Fishwick

Dealership David Fishwick has become the first supplier in the UK to take delivery of an Iveco Daily Start, the newest addition to the manufacturer’s minibus range, in the form of a demonstrator.

The 6m-long Daily Start is an entry-level model. It seats up to 16 passengers, with potential for wheelchair access in some configurations. It is powered by the 3.0-litre F1C engine and the eight-speed Hi-Matic automatic gearbox may be specified.

Access is via a manual side-sliding door with a retractable step. To enhance the Daily Start’s versatility, options include CCTV, a reversing camera and USB charging points. Additionally, the side door can be powered.

“The Daily Start’s functional configuration offers fleets the opportunity to make their operations even more profitable,” says Iveco Bus UK Product Manager Abdi Ali.

“We’ve designed the Daily Start to be highly-competitive within its class, and we are experiencing strong demand – particularly from fleets that carry a lot of passengers over short journeys, where our higher-specification vehicles aren’t necessary.”

The standard specification includes a DAB radio, parking sensors and saloon air-conditioning, among other items. Fishwick is offering the Daily Start from £43,350 plus VAT and support is another plus, says Dealer Principal Mark Barlow.

“The Daily Start offers excellent value for money, thanks to Iveco’s pedigree in the minicoach and minibus market plus its 24/7 aftersales and maintenance support, which is second to none. With this new vehicle, operators can be confident of a long service life, even for high-mileage applications.”
