The Daily Tourys was voted winner of the first edition of the "International Minibus of the Year 2017" Award at the end of the three-day Minibus Euro Test conducted by a jury of journalists representing 18 leading specialized magazines from across Europe.
The jury judged the Daily Tourys to have performed very well during the test involving also six other competitors, where they were evaluated in real road conditions with uphill and downhill sections, motorways, narrow roads and a variety of situations.
The new "International Minibus of the Year" award was created this year by the jury of the prestigious European International Bus & Coach of the Year Awards to recognize minibuses, microbuses and midibuses designed for professional passenger transport.
The Daily Tourys stands out for the remarkably high level of customer personalization it offers, both in terms of specifications and on board set up. As a result, it is able to provide an exclusive transport experience with luxurious comfort and in a stylish environment, for passengers and driver alike. The seats are fixed on rails for greater versatility, as it makes it easy to set up with the desired number of seats: a maximum of 19 or, if the customer requires more legroom, just 16. The rails are mounted on a podium, increasing the comfort of passengers and avoiding the disturbance of wheel arches to provide easy access to all seats. The Kiel Touristic reclining seats with three-point seatbelts provide ultimate comfort and style.
The Daily Tourys offers best-in-class luggage capacity in its segment, with a 2.5 m3 lowered compartment at the rear, which is easy to load and unload. The high level standard features ensuring the passengers' well-being and enjoyment on long journeys include individual air conditioning and LED lights, the new IVECO multi-media system, USB ports and LCD monitor.
Features like the Hi-Matic class exclusive 8-speed automatic gearbox, rear air suspension and Telma retarder guarantee absolute driving pleasure and travelling comfort. The comprehensive safety features and compliance with R66 regulations ensure maximum safety for passengers and driver.
The tough and reliable 180 HP 3-litre diesel engine delivers a powerful and efficient performance. The two-year full warranty with unlimited mileage contributes to the low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). The support of the widespread network of 667 service points spread across the European territory and staffed by highly trained technicians provides peace of mind, keeping the vehicle on the road and ensuring it performs at its best at all times.
