IVECO Stralis X-Way impresses leading publication

The latest IVECO Stralis X-Way AT340 has have been through its paces by leading publication Commercial Motors. When the opening line is “Don’t be put off by its initial toylike appearance – the IVECO X-Way is one for serious grown-ups”, North East Truck and Van are going to take a look.

IVECO X-Way specifications

Highlighting the “good” manoeuvrability, the steering lock was highlighted as “visibly tighter than the sector norm” which is “very helpful on site”. The lighter steering “was light enough to be helpful at manoeuvring speed without being too light at higher speeds and on country roads”.

Smooth ride

Stating that the “dynamics are good”, Commercial Motors added, “you get a smooth ride, secure handling and reassuring brakes”. Choose from three options – ON for the standard level, ON+ for mildly enhanced off-road protection and OFF is for regular use on challenging sites and includes 25o approach angle and raised ground clearance.

Engine option

Featuring a 9 litre 400bhp Euro-6 Hi-SCR engine, the IVECO S-WAY produces power that “feels more than adequate for 32 tonnes, and it is delivered smoothly and quietly”. Commercial Motor went on to add “The 12-speed ZF TraXon is as smooth as ever, with its speedy decision-making ability meaning there is little to be gained by trying to outguess it. The TraXon’s off-road mode also helps by optimising shift strategy and providing a rocking function”.

Convenient layout

Commercial Motors stated “everything was in reach” when the test reached its final destination. The PTO switch and tailgate lock are on the dash and “the tipper lever on the engine hump” which is a “convenient location, rather than the current trend of buried somewhere behind your right hip”.

Summing up the review Commercial Motors commented: “Do yourself a favour and get a demonstrator for a week or two – you might be pleasantly surprised”.
