New Irizar i6S Integral joins the fleet at Heathside Travel

Heathside Travel returns to Irizar (UK) for its second Integral, a 13.2 metre tri-axle i6S.

The family-run business based in Ferndown, Dorset, was started in October 2016. With an operation comprising of cruise work, private hires and corporate clients, a high-quality appearance is mirrored across the Heathside Travel fleet and the Irizar i6S is no exception.

The new addition has 55 i6+ seats upholstered in ileather and features arm rests, seat-back tables and USB charging points throughout. An onboard drinks machine and WC add to passenger comfort.

As with all Irizar Integrals safety features include; Lane Departure Warning and Advance Emergency Warning Systems and the recent addition of Adaptive Cruise Control. Heathside Travel have also selected Predictive Cruise Control, 3-Point Seat Belts and Cant rail lights to enhance passenger safety.

The i6S features the advanced DAF MX13-355 483hp engine and ZF Traxon transmission.

The Interior appearance is enhanced by a wood-effect floor and blue LED lighting along the gangway, while the leather steering wheel adds further class to the smart black and white themed interior. Meanwhile ‘kerb appeal’ is boosted by metallic paintwork and aluminium drive-axle covers.

“The transaction process dealing with Irizar UK was smooth from start to finish,” says Director, Tim Southby.

Tim adds; “The i6S has superb kerbside appeal and drivability. But that’s not all – its backed up by great aftersales support and service.  As a small operator this gives real peace of mind”.

The coach will be kept on fleet for six to seven years and is to be maintained locally by PLC Commercials.
