Fuso says this single cab model features a Quik Corp light pumper body and is also available as a crew cab with seating for up to seven.

Fuso offers the Canter 4×4 in two wheelbases, including the long wheelbase model and the short wheelbase version, the latter of which has a class-leading turning circle of 11.4 metres.
