Wolverhampton-based Coach Choice Limited has once again opted for Scania, this time taking a 13.7-metre 57 seat, executive specification Scania Irizar Century coach. This is the third Scania vehicle delivered to Coach Choice over the past 12-months, the previous two being another Scania Irizar Century and a Scania Irizar PB, both of which are 12.9-metres overall length.

The new vehicle is based on a Scania K400EB 6×2*4 chassis featuring a 400 horsepower Scania engine, Scania Opticruise transmission and a steering rear axle for maximum manoeuvrability in restricted areas. The addition of a three-axle vehicle to the fleet also accommodates the trend Coach Choice has identified among tour operators who are progressively requesting higher capacity vehicles and additional luggage capacity.

“I enjoy both the Scania product and the service that accompanies them,” comments Coach Choice Managing Director, Chris Evitt.

“The vehicles are reliable and economical and their EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) engines are simple in operation as no AdBlue is required.  In terms of service, I particularly appreciate the backup provided by the Scania network and the fact that 24/7 assistance is on hand should it ever be needed.”
