Versatility and flexibility

The DAF XB features a 50mm standard grid pattern on the chassis meaning it’s easier to fit any body without having to drill additional holes and with a wide range of chassis lengths and wheelbases, the DAF XB is suitable for whatever your needs and application.
Featuring slimmer mirrors and a profiled co-driver grab handle and a vision door on the passenger side maximise the driver’s direct vision.
