IVECO has its unique cab nomenclature, one that’s been around a while, and once you’re in the ‘familiarity’, it’s a cinch. AD, Active Day – short for a day cab; AT, is Active Time, a 2.3m-wide day roof, or high-top at 3.5m external height and 1.85m internal. AS, short for Active Space, is the big kahuna, a full 2.5m-wide jobbie, with two heights, a ‘low’ at 3.3m external and 1.7m internal, and a high 3.80m external, and 2.150m internal headspace.

Under the S-Way cabs are the familiar Cursor range in 9L, 11L, and 13L displacement, now with Euro- 6 Step-E emissions. That’s as clean as it gets currently and for those who still wake up in the night sweating and screaming over their previous EGR nightmares, Iveco might have the elixir. There’s not a recirculating exhaust gas molecule in sight in the Cursor, using IVECO’s Hi-eSCR system instead. It is DEF-only system with passive DPF regeneration not requiring driver intervention, meaning it’ll regenerate anywhere without issue.

“The SCR system is a better system as it allows lower temperatures in the exhaust and extends component life,” says Emiliano Foieri, heavy vehicle product manager at IVECO in Australia. DEF consumption runs at about 7%–8% of fuel consumption.

Behind the engine is the Hi-Tronix AMT 12-speed transmission, an absolute sweetheart, not surprising considering it’s an Iveco- tuned ZF TraXon.

Meritor put the screws on out back, with Iveco’s eight-bag ECAS pneumatic suspension holding everything in place, and keeping the rough from the tuff. The big 570 in 8×4 configuration has an air front end, and the 6×4 chassis can arrive in the yard with a full mechanical suspension and ON+, IVECO speaks for improved ground clearance – adding an extra 70mm of precious space on the underside.


AS – Active Space: 2.5m wide cab in high (3800mm HoA) and low (3300mm HoA) roof.
AT – Active Time: 2.3m wide cab in medium (3500mm HoA) and low (2900mm HoA) roof.
AD – Active Day: 2.3m wide cab in low (2900mm) roof (No sleeper option).
Note: Height overall may vary slightly depending on tyre and suspension options.
