UNVI AIMS FOR A PIECE
OF IVECO’S DAILY CAKE
Another bodybuilder with high hopes for an Iveco Daily-based small
coach is UNVI, which offers its Compa through a UK and Irish network
The Compa was initially targeted
at applications where luxury and luggage
space, rather than capacity, are the
principal concerns with 29 seats now the
highest capacity available.
A productive niche has also been carved
in the high-specifi cation sector, where
16 seats are offered in a 2+1 layout.
At 8.5m, the Compa is longer than
coachbuilt Mercedes-Benz Sprinter-based
models. Although the Compa is a new
model, it displays some similarities with
other UNVI products.
Its slightly bowed sides are reminiscent
of the Riada, and they are very obvious
from the driver’s seat when viewed in the
Courier provision is identical to that
of the Atego-mounted Voyager GT; the seat
is mounted at floor level ahead of the door.
At the rear is a boot that is more than
suffi cient to accommodate the luggage;
It is enormous. The Hi-Matic gearbox is the
gold standard in the small PCV sector.
It is superbly smooth when shifting, and
remains so when the Compa is pushed very
hard. The Compa shares many things with
a larger coach.
It is a pleasant vehicle both to drive
and to travel in, and UNVI fi ts many items
that are found on its bigger brothers,
including a capable climate control system,
comfortable seats, and others.
Its windows are large and passenger
acceptance will be high.
Additionally, operating costs are set to be
low thanks to meagre fuel consumption.
The Compa is a serious contender
in this area of the market and it further
strengthens a strong push by Iveco.
