Newer models offer a small, practical steering wheel as well as adjustable rake and reach for comfort. Every driver is different and the Iveco Daily caters to this nicely. The high driving position also frees up legroom and offers a clear view of the road ahead, while the large door mirrors maximise visibility helping you to feel confident as you navigate between jobs.
