DETAILED REVIEW

The overcab sunroof for van conversions debuted last year from Adria, Dreamer (Rapido Group) and Malibu (Carthago). Now, there’s a British campervan with this desirable feature as all of Swift’s Select models get a new panoramic sunroof with integrated blind for the 2020 season.

The range grows by one for the year ahead, too. So, the 122 (6.00m, rear lounge), 144 (6.00m, front and rear lounges), 164 (6.36m, French bed) and 184 (6.36m, front and rear lounges) are joined by the new Select 174. Like its sister models, the newcomer has the 120bhp Euro 6d Fiat engine as standard, with 140bhp manual and 140bhp automatic options available at extra cost. The metallic grey paint shown here is £495 extra and the only alternative to standard white

. If the Select 174’s most noticeable new feature is inspired by imported rivals, that’s even truer of the floorplan adopted. Widely referred to as the ‘Adria Twin’ layout, this is the design that dominates across the Continent, with a half-dinette lounge, central kitchen (alongside the sliding door) with washroom opposite and a transverse double bed at the rear. Of course, as a UK-built motorhome, the Select has its sliding door on our nearside, while the rear bed can be folded away (just like its rivals) for carrying bikes or other large loads. The under-bed storage area here measures 0.76m wide and 0.73m tall, while the bed itself is 1.86m by 1.37m – and comes with a Duvalay Apollo Luxe mattress for comfort.

To suit UK tastes, the 174’s kitchen includes a grill, as well as a two-burner hob and an 85-litre fridge. Most buyers will, however, want to add the £1,995 Drivers Pack (cruise control, height-adjustable cab seats, passenger airbag, colour-coded bumper, etc) and £1,595 Lux Pack (alloy wheels, DAB radio, removable carpets, cab blinds, solar panel, reversing sensors and more).
