Each new IVECO S-WAY will be covered for the first 2-years and/or 130,000km (whichever is reached first).

The connected features aren’t just for those back in the office though, they give back to the driver too. By enhancing the time they spend on board and enabling some control over their performance, the IVECO S-WAY becomes a workmate, rather than just another tool.”
