King of the delivery vans


Carry-over champ. the has been an outstanding success

No ifs, buts or maybes, iLoad van is definitely the light-commercial story of recent times.

zero in 2008, when it was to the Australian market, to hero in now outselling Toyota’s HiAce, the workhorse has achieved what never had a snowflake’s chance in of doing.

Figures released this month show the commands 32 per cent of the van market, with HiAce’s 27.3 per The king has been dethroned.

is no doubt iLoad deserves to be the story it has become. It is feature-packed, styled and finished, has a generous capacity and payload, and is priced

These are the attributes tradies and — large and small look for in a »one box» although to be precise, the iLoad is a van» (SBV) whereas the is more cab-over.

Toyota did an SBV a few years ago but it came and went barely a whimper.

Two four-cylinder choices are available in iLoad: the petrol engine, which 129kW and 228Nm of torque; and the diesel, which knocks out and an impressive 392Nm.

To achieve this figure, the relies on common-rail direct and a variable geometry turbocharger exactly the sort of power-making large trucks embraced years ago. The petrol uses multi-point injection.

opting for diesel power the choice of either a five-speed or a five-speed automatic while models rely solely on the gearbox to transfer the power to the wheels.

The iLoad is available in two a three-seat van or a six-seat crew Drive has driven both at and each came up trumps. At the end of the which style you choose be a matter of application — people and less payload or the way around.

As with most vans in class, the driver sits in the saddle with a great through the large windscreen. the same cannot be said of the which, despite having a sized front windscreen, gives the impression you are peering out of a slot.

The iLoad crew van has windows as standard, which driving and parking that easier and safer. The van version without side windows but are available as a factory option.

can choose either barn that open to 180 degrees or a tailgate at the rear. Dual doors are standard.

The three-seat van can carry up to 4.3 cubic of cargo on a floor area is 2370 millimetres long, millimetres wide and 1350 high. The crew van, as you expect, takes a hit in the cargo with 2.5 cubic metres of area on a floor that has reduced to 1585 millimetres in

The distance between the wheel in both is 1260 millimetres of space to fit a standard Chep Additional timber flooring and mats are available as accessories for the area. Tie-downs are numerous.

Laden or empty, the iLoad is in either the petrol or oil-burner I personally prefer the torque of the diesel as it pulls strongly down low in the rev range. If you are regularly a full load, this is the to choose.

Engine noise in the van is a little intrusive, more so the vehicle is empty. Road are as good as you’ll find in a van and even with a load on iLoad remains well in all conditions.

Drive-away prices start at for a petrol van, $30,990 for a crew van, $33,490 for the van and $35,990 for the diesel crew
