LDV Deliver9 LWB Auto 2021 Review

We take the LDV Deliver9 for a Road Test Review

Covid has changed the LCV market, especially in the 3.5 – 8T range of vehicles. LDV Deliver9 is a cost effective choice in this competitive segment.

LDVDeliver9-1  This week Ive played delivery driver with a huge white van in the driveway.

LDV Deliver9

I drove the long wheelbase high roof variant that is powered by a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder turbodiesel producing 110kW and a useful 375Nm from just 1,500rpm. This drives the rear wheels through a 6 sp automatic transmission.

LDV Deliver9 safety

Safety features include stop/start engine functionality, Adaptive cruise control, Autonomous Emergency Braking, Bosch’s latest generation Electronic Stability Control system, an excellent reverse camera, Lane Departure Warning, and plenty of airbags.

LDV Deliver9

The driver’s position is pretty comfortable with an easy to read dash, smart phone connectivity, and a 10.1 inch touch screen. Dual external rear view mirrors are a bonus.

LDV Deliver9

Load area practicality comes from a side sliding door, rear 180 degree opening doors and a huge capacity with wide floor area.

Priced from $44,726 RDAP it represents excellent value.
