• Further information about the Dennis Duple Dart 9M minibus has been released by the manufacturer in the buildup to the motor show.
The Dart uses a Cromweld corrosion-free structure in its body, with easy-to-replace front and side panels and a detachable bumper.
It also features a low entry step, and its 1.14-metre-wide pneumatically operated glider entrance doors have convenient hand grabs.
A four-piece single-curvature front screen is designed to minimise reflection and to offer optimum forward vision from the driver's high position.
Inside, the flat floor allows for a standing headroom of 2.13m in the main saloon; underseat box heaters are fitted, and three bell pushes, a full-length roof handpole and straps are said to ensure passenger safety.
