SPRITE QUATTRO

In the twin-axle sector, the Quattro reigns supreme


JUST a few months after the traditional late summer model changeover, Swift has revamped the Sprite to offer more inspiring interiors at a new, lower price.

The results of this mid-model year make-over are impressive. With just a little bit of extra attention to detail, Swift has succeeded in transforming a slightly staid, somewhat utilitarian base level caravan into a nicely packaged family tourer which represents excellent value for money.

Before the interior décor boys were let loose on the Swift - it looked like a poor relation to the rest of the Swift stable - a bit drab and quite clearly built down to a price. Now it's had the benefit of a little TLC, the Sprite has really blossomed.

Combine the fresh new look with price reductions that mean the Quattro tested here is available for just £12,495, and suddenly Sprite becomes impossible to ignore at this end of the market.

After hiding its light under a bushel for the last couple of years, Swift Group has really brought the Sprite range to the fore with these improvements together with an aggressive pricing policy. Overall, the Quattro is a practical, roomy, well-built caravan, which is light enough to be within reach of the typical young family and is priced accordingly.

Although Bailey's new single axle Rangers are on a par with the Sprite range, in the twin-axle sector, the Quattro is unbeatable.
