Iveco S-Way Debuts in Korea
Here to succeed the IVECO Stralis which won two “International Truck of the Year” awards in 2003 and 2013 since it was first launched in Europe in 2002, the Iveco S-Way has been completely redesigned and equipped with numerous new technology.
4 million kilometres
In its development phase, it has undergone more than 100,000 hours of digital simulations and 4 million kilometres of test-drives over three years to ensure its high quality and performance. This new long-haul truck introduces significant improvements in performance, Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and durability.
The Iveco S-Way has also won the iF Design Award 2020 in the Automobiles/Vehicles Category of the Product Discipline.
On the exterior, the newly designed cab comes with a new front grille with high radius corners and side fins, new integrated headlights, a new bumper design with integrated deflectors, and newly designed wheel arches.
These elements on new cab design reduce drag coefficient by 12%, increasing the vehicle’s excellent fuel efficiency by up to 4% compared to the previous model.
Additional significant savings derive from the integrated parking cooler, which brings a double benefit in that it not only is more energy-efficient than a dealer-installed kit alternative, but it also has no impact on the vehicle’s aerodynamic performance.
Design elements also contribute to the Iveco S-Way’s low TCO: the new three-piece bumper, which in the event of damage only requires replacement of the affected piece instead of the whole bumper.
It offers a choice of two engines – the 11.0-litre heavy-duty Cursor diesel engine with 460hp or 13.0-litre heavy-duty Cursor diesel engine that delivers 510 or 570hp – all suitable for long haulage. The class-leading power engine is combined with the 12-speed HI-TRONIX automated transmission with electronic clutch, which offers best-in-class torque-to-weight ratio and long transmission oil change intervals.
Inside, the redesigned roof and lower engine tunnel provide a comfortable standing height of up to 2.15 meters in the center of the cabin allowing easy in-cab movements in standing position.
In addition, the upper longitudinal usable space is 35 cm wider than in the previous model, providing easier access to the upper bed and compartments. The electric openable roof hatch, designed 20% wider than in the previous model, provides even more brightness and openness to the driver.
There is also the new Start/Stop engine button and the slot for the electronic key with integrated remote control also conveniently placed on the dashboard near the DNR area, leaving more leg room adding to the overall comfort.
The dashboard and central stack have been redesigned to improve operating comfort and efficiency with a new layout and greatly increased functionalities. The 7-inch capacitive touchscreen provides access to the new infotainment system which enables the driver to bring their digital life on board with phone mirroring using Apple Car Play.
The IVECO S-WAY introduced a complete range of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) that enable the driver to focus on the job, which requires an increasing degree of multitasking, and improve their safety.
It includes Advanced Emergency Braking System (AEBS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS). Moreover, the new LED lights improve visibility and obstacle perception by 15% even in low-light conditions, and optimized side mirrors placing a wide angle at the bottom with no intermediate pillars dramatically reduce the blind spot area, increasing overall safety.
