Delivered in June was a 57-seat version, which Director Lee Johnson has been proud to use on his packed summer tour schedule for its Redfern Travel brand.

“It’s got that instant passenger appeal,” he says. “It’s a futuristic design on the i6 – very eye catching.

“Mechanically the coach is sound and we’ve not had an issue with it. It does what it says on the tin”

Johnson Bros. of Worksop took four new Irizars into the fleet in 2014 and this is the first of two for 2015.

Lee added: “We’re at 150 vehicles now, which is where I think we need to be. The two new Irizars have slipped straight in and I like dealing with the dealership. They stand by what they say they’re going to do for you.”

This version has the DAF MX11-271 engine and ZF EcoLife gearbox combination.
