Swift Group’s market leading products recognised in Latest Practical Magazine Awards
08 October 2012
Swift Group recently picked up winners at both the Practical Caravan Tourer of the Year Awards 2013 with the Swift Challenger SE 570 and Sprite Major 6 and the Practical Motorhome of the Year Awards 2012 with the Swift Bolero 630EW.
The new Swift Challenger SE 570 range won the ‘Best Caravan for Couples’ with Practical Caravan commenting ‘ The SE models are bulging with desirable kit, but thanks to a decision to switch to the ‘Challenger Sport’ body shell, they are lighter and easier to tow. Comments like ‘The kit list is extensive’, ‘ Alde heating with fuss-free touch-screen control’, ‘plenty to impress’, thoughtfully implemented LED lighting’ and ‘warm and appealing’ clinched the award.
Swift’s aim with the new SE ranges was to produce a range of caravans which were heavy on kit but lighter in weight to enable them to be towed by more fuel efficient cars. The winning comments bear testament to this with the Swift Challenger SE 530 also recommended in the Best small family caravan category.
The Sprite Major 6 won the ‘Best Caravan for Large Families’ with Practical Caravan commenting ‘Space for six occupants and all their kit, a competitive price tag and a sturdy build are crucial’ to win this category. ‘The Major 6 is an all-rounder and simply makes sense...it’s affordable and a sensible weight...in a style you wouldn’t expect in an entry level van’.
The Sprite range is popular every year with the Sprite Musketeer also recommended in the ‘Small Family Caravan’ category and the Sprite Quattro FB recommended in the ‘Seasonal Pitch Caravan’ category.
The Swift Bolero 630EW won the ‘Best Coachbuilt for Two’ with Practical Motorhome commenting ‘ Swift managed to squeeze an amazing amount of features into the radically revamped and improved Bolero for the 2012 season, with great success’. ‘The front lounge, rear-washroom layout is one of the best for a couple on tour... we also think the Bolero is the best looking UK-built motorhome range on the market right now’.
With the wet Alde central heating and AL-KO chassis the Bolero is also one of the best equipped ranges for all year round use.
Nick Page, Commercial Director for Swift Group commented ‘These awards show that Swift Groups aim to deliver exceptional value for money in 2013 with great specification, competitive prices and a drive for energy efficiency is an award-winning formula. Whatever model you are considering from top of the range to entry-level, there has never been a more compelling time to choose Swift.’
