Our test vehicle is the Daily E6 50C Van which represents the middle tier in a three-tier model range. It also has the middle tier (H2) roof height and is equipped with the premium 210EVID 3.0 litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel option and ZF Hi-Matic eight-speed torque converter auto option for a list price of $82,217.
Its six steel wheels (dual rears) are fitted with Michelin 195/75 R16 tyres and there’s a full-size spare stowed under the rear floor. There’s also a suspended, heated and fully adjustable driver’s seat plus a bench seat for a crew of two as standard equipment. However, our test vehicle is equipped with the optional single passenger seat, with the same comfort features as the driver’s.
Also standard is adaptive cruise control, electric windows, big truck-style exterior mirrors with heating, electric adjustment and indicators, height-adjustable asymmetric (flat bottom) steering wheel, cordless mobile phone charging, intelligent electronic parking brake and daytime running lights to name a few.
Another option fitted to our van is the latest four-speaker Hi-Connect infotainment system with touchscreen and steering wheel controls for multiple connectivity including Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, GPS and reversing camera. There’s also a new hi-res colour instrument cluster for the driver that’s easier to read in all light conditions, with seven dedicated screen menus providing more than 100 points of vehicle information.
Daily E6 buyers can also select from four optional equipment upgrade packs, which allow them to more closely tailor a package to best suit their applications while benefitting from the value of grouping various options.
