DETAILED REVIEW

This motorhome is LARGE. One of the longest of Swift’s new Kon-tiki range, the tag-axle 675 stretches the tape all the way to 9.01m. It’s not just long, either; it’s 5cm over 3m high even in Low-line form (the High-line overcab increases this figure to 3.13m).

There’s no doubting, though, that this motorhome manages to look quite sleek for its size. That’s thanks, in part, to an impressive overcab moulding, even in High-line form. Both High-line and Low-line models offer a cleverly integrated rooflight for ventilation.

Starting at the front, the overcab bed is spacious, measuring 1.90m by 1.31m. Swift has thoughtfully installed two USB sockets in this area for charging the obligatory phones, tablets and gadgets. The bed pushes up on struts for daytime access in and out of the cab.

The seating area is big, too, with more than enough room to cope with the four folk who can sleep and travel on board (rear seats have Isofix). The table is huge and, in the style of continentals, it slides in two directions and lowers thanks to a telescopic pedestal. It is fixed, so cannot be removed to create a more open lounge, but it does fold in half for added manoeuvring space.

The kitchen has the perfect triangle of fridge, sink and hob, with the latter two sitting within an L-shaped unit topped with Corian. The 177-litre fridge opposite has a dual-action door that can be opened from either side. The only things that disappoint in this space are the cutlery drawer and the draining board/sink cover; used across the rest of the Swift range, they are a little incongruous with the calibre of the rest of the motorhome.

The washroom, across the centre of the ’van, has plenty of floor space. The radiator is a telltale sign of the Alde - wet -heating fitted, while the toilet has plenty of room and is not too high. The basin – a simple, white plastic design – is a good size and has a large mirror above to suit all heights of motorhomer. Storage is ample here. The shower is opposite, next to the wardrobe, and is roomy, but there is no vent for steam.

At the rear, the single beds are 1.94m and 1.91m long respectively, both having further wardrobes underneath that you can access from above or through a side door. Oh, and there’s another wardrobe up front next to the fridge, so clothes storage is plentiful.

Back to those beds and the presence of a new-for-2019 feature means the rear area is light and spacious. The new rear window and rooflight combo means that this layout forgos a wardrobe between the two beds and is all the better for it.

It does explain the presence of all those other wardrobes, as there are no high-level lockers in this bedroom.

The beds are set high to allow a garage below, with two full-sized doors accessing the 1.4m high by 1.38m wide (at floor level) space. It has lights, tie-down points and a power socket, as well as the spare wheel.

Standard kit is high and includes the Swift Vision system with side and rear cameras, heated cab chairs, a wide habitation door, built-in WiFi, awning, barbecue point, exterior shower and pull-out exterior locker.
