Scania is introducing a longer version of the Irizar i6S
Available to order now, based on Scania’s nine-litre, 360hp chassis, it is now available in 12.9m overall length with 53 seats and a centre sunken toilet. Standard specification includes Irizar i6S passenger seats with three-point seatbelts, synthetic leather head-pads and seat back tables, Bosch Smart Series audio equipment, a DVD player with two monitors and a hot water drinks machine mounted on top of the centre sunken toilet compartment. The exterior finish will be complemented by Alcoa Dura-Bright alloy wheels.
The first vehicle built to the longer length will arrive into the UK early January and has been purchased by Dudley-based Dunwood Travel. Director, Phil Westwood, said: “We currently operate a 100% Scania fleet, of which all but one vehicle is the Scania Irizar combination. We approached Scania to see if they could build a 12.9m two-axle Irizar coach with 53 seats for added passenger comfort and are extremely pleased they have been able to offer this option. We purchased our first Scania Irizar vehicles back in 2014 and have consistently purchased them every year since. I personally like the fact that Scania look after both the body and chassis at their local dealerships, ensuring I get maximum utilisation and efficiency from the vehicles at all times.”
