The DAF-powered, low-height vehicles have been specified with 57 i6 seats with footrests, carpeted aisle and a two-monitor DVD system so the Aldershot operator can keep them busy on a range of work. Already, says Managing Director Richard Trueman, they are showing how versatile they are.

“We’ve just sent one away on a four-day school trip and were pleasantly surprised at the luggage capacity,” he says . “Clearly they’re not continental tourers but they’re more than capable of doing UK touring duties.”

The Euro 5 PR265 engine and ZF AS-Tronic combination is excellent, says Richard: “They’re very responsive and a pleasure to drive. Also, the near side centre door is proving very useful on contract work in helping speed up loading and set-down.”

Truemans has been an Irizar UK customer for two years, having already bought four high-specification i6 Integral touring coaches from the Worksop-based Irizar importer.
