The other two coaches in this order are 10.8-metre overall length vehicles based on Scania K360 4x2 chassis with fully-automated Scania Opticruise gear-selection system.
The Irizar i6S bodywork features 36 recliners with half leather trim to the seats, rear floor mounted toilet/washroom and a large servery at the rear with built-in units for fridges and drinks facilities, fitted by A&D coach systems.

Neil Pegg, managing director of City Circle (UK), says: “The Scania Irizar i6 product has performed exceptionally well over the last few years for our business. When I was introduced to the upgraded i6S model, and the additional refinements and specification enhancements it offers, I knew it was the right product for our high profile client base.”
All 20 coaches will also have the Colour Plus dash feature, giving the driver instant performance information, and the vehicles have on-board wifi, CCTV systems and USB charging points to all seats.
