The Astra 8×8 is the largest and most heavy duty off-road vehicle available in the Iveco product line-up.  It’s unashamedly purpose-built to be totally functional and practical while filling the most demanding off-road applications.  Featuring huge ground clearance, a full-time 8×8 system with lockable diffs on all axles and a choice of two powerful horsepower options, the Astra is a true workhorse and excels when road conditions deteriorate.
