General 2004 Iveco Cavallino truck reviews for Uganda

Design and interior
The front features a simple radiator grille which bares the company’s logo in its center while each corner of the cab received side deflectors to improve the truck’s stability at high speeds.

The bumper continues the rudimentary design initiated by the grille and is defined by square lines and rectangular shapes. The headlights are also pretty simple and don’t do nothing to improve the overall appearance of the truck.

The good part is that the side foot steps are pretty well positioned and offer easy access into the cab. The doors come have a wide opening angle further enhancing aces inside.

The cabin has a hydraulic tipping system and opens with an angle of 60 degrees to facilitate quick access to the engine or for periodic maintenance checks.

About the interior, Three well placed steps bring you easily onboard were you are welcomed by a high roofed cab and an impression of plenty of light and space. The combinations of blacks and subtle greys adorning the interior trim are cleverly, applied but the rectangular dashboard offers a dated look to the entire cab.

Unlike most of today’s trucks which feature a wraparound dash, the Cavallino comes with a conventional design. The overall ergonomy isn’t exactly first class, but most of the controls are placed within easy reach. On the other hand, the Iveco Cavallino falls pretty short when it comes to storage places and except for a few small consoles and cup holders you won’t find too many places to store your things safely.

The plastics are rock hard and the materials are also part of the third class. The fittings aren’t great either and the cab isn’t as refined as the other products built by Iveco. The interior switches are chunky and easy to use and despite the big panel gaps found all over the place we didn’t detect any squeak inside.

Both the driver and passenger seats are a bit hard without offering a proper back support or any kind of adequate side bolstering. At least the driver’s seat is air suspended and comes with a wide range of useful adjustments (height included) permitting you to find an adequate driving position.

Looking at riding and handling, the front axle can deal with a capacity of 6600 kg and it’s fitted with parabolic springs with rubber bushings, telescopic double acting shock absorbers and stabilizer bar. The rear axle features semielliptical leaf springs, rubber bushings, telescopic shock absorbers and double action stabilizer bar, being able to deal with a maximum capacity of 11,500 kg. The suspension is working well within its limits and is never really troubled by whatever you’ll ask of it.

Fully loaded, the Iveco Cavallino delivers competent handling which inspires adequate confidence. Though, as is usual with this type of trucks, a slight under steer is occasionally detected, but this isn’t a significant safety issue.

Even if the turning radius isn’t as tight as the newer trucks build by the company, positioning the Cavallino on narrow roads is relatively easy thanks to the light and easy action of the steering wheel.

Our Conclusion

The Iveco Cavallino isn’t as refined as other trucks in the segment, but it’s a fairly strong work horse on which you can rely with confidence. The exterior design and the interior are both dated and the comfort is more on the rudimentary side. Though, the engine is fairly strong and even if it’s not as efficient as other units in this class it will do its job with dignity.
