Globecar reveals 2016 range and prices


There will be no increase in prices for 2016, while the official Gloebcar UK agent, SMC of Newark, says buyers will be treated to two specification packs worth almost £5,000 for free for a limited period.

There is just one significant new model for 2016 – a sub-6m version of its 600-L called the Globestar 600-L Edition. This compact campervan (5.998m L x 2.05m W x 2.58m H) is aimed at those looking for the comfort of fixed beds in a van that is shorter than the 6m benchmark. It will be priced at £40,995.

As such it comes with twin longitudinal beds, which can be converted into a large double. Up front there is a small half dinette, which, along with the swivel cab seats means there is seating for four people. There’s a central washroom with shower that separates the living from the sleeping area.

The front dinette and table can also be converted into a third bed (yes we did try it) and, although it’s only large enough to sleep one adult, it is surprisingly comfortable.

This third bed (left) is a £300 but is included in a special pack for a limited period.

The model also comes in a Revolution (pictured below) version, which includes an electric double bed at the rear and costs £1,000 more at £41,995.

For 2016, all models will have the same base price but will include an ‘All-in Pack’ worth £2,660 that includes cab air-con, driver and passenger air bags, matching cab upholstery, 80l fridge in place of 60l (layout permitting).

Better still for the October NEC show, Globecars will also come with a free UK Pack, which includes cruise control, upgraded Truma heating, metallic paint, colour-coded front bumper, wheel trims and the alternate table and bed, which is estimated to be worth a further £2,300.

Other changes to the Globecar range include the replacement of the ‘Style’ range with the ‘Limited’ range.

Across-the-range changes for 2016 include different upholstery and fabrics, higher quality wood finish to the cabinets and chrome-effect higher quality catches for the cabinets and cupboards. In addition, some of the models now come with flush-fit windows.

All of the Globecar range are available with a rising roof as an option except for the shortest 5.6m models.

All British models will also be available with a combination Thetford oven/grill under the sink, which means the loss of some kitchen storage.
