The Massif actually has nothing in common with the currently popular SUVs (Sport Utility Vehicles) which have a somewhat chunky appearance but nevertheless are built more for the city than off-road. It is a fully-fledged, robust rough-terrain vehicle whereby professional offroad use was the main focus during its development phase. The Massif is built for rough conditions but provides, however, optimal driving comfort for its passengers with three equipment versions: Classico, Montagna and Avventura. Regardless whether it’s asphalt or mud: The Massif lives up to its name.

The new DAILY 4x4 looks like a genuine 4x4: it stands high off the
ground and provides its driver with an excellent overview. This is very

of 51°, a ramp angle of up to 149° and the fording depth of 700 mm
show that the new Daily has the performance of a real off-road vehicle.
Although new, the Daily 4x4 is nevertheless immediately recognizable

version of the Daily.
However, in favour of more spring travel, the 4x4 is mounted high
above the robust ladder-type frame and has a new front bumper with
integrated dimmed headlights and fog lamps.
The comfortable interior design of the Daily 4x2 has been taken on
for both the standard driver’s cab and 6 + 1 double cab.
The new DAILY 4x4 is available with 3.5 t and 5.5 t Gross Vehicle
Weight as well as 3,050 mm and 3,400 mm wheel base. It comes as
35 S 18 W and 55 S 18 W with both wheel bases and standard driver’s
cab. The double cab is available for the longer wheel base.
