Specs are keen in this mid-market range, but there’s still enough room for dealers to fit a slew of tasty extras
SWIFT’S mid-market offering boasts eight models for 2018, comprising fixed- and non-fixed bed layouts to suit couples and families alike. This explains why it is such a popular base for dealer special edition vans. Prices for factory versions of the Swift Challenger range from £19,230 to £22,930. Al-ko chassis underpin all Challengers, and there are six single-axle caravans, plus two twin-axles, in the range. Swift’s trademark good looks are much in evidence on the exteriors. Bodyshells use Swift’s SMART construction (timberless frames) with single-piece GRP sides. Base specification Moving inside, all Challenger caravans come with Swift Command control panels, which locate the onboard services in one easy-to-access place, and can be controlled remotely via a smartphone or tablet app. Mid-toned cabinetwork and beige work surfaces lend the interiors a pleasing ambience, and LED lighting features throughout the living area. Truma Combi 4 heating is standard fit in the Challenger. The kitchen spec includes a dual-fuel cooker, separate oven and grill, microwave oven and dual-fuel fridge. Washrooms feature LED task lighting and Ecocamel shower heads.
