New Autocruise coachbuilt range has its own distinctive appeal

Coachbuilt FloorplansPDF File

Autocruise have refined the coachbuilt motorhome range for 2010, with new exterior styling combined with a refinement of interior style, strengthening a brand which has always had its own distinctive appeal.

The new line-up still consists of three specification levels: the Star range with two compact models, the Star Plus range of three models based on an AL-KO chassis and the Driving range of two larger models with full luxury specification as standard.

The three updated ranges will be launched at the International Caravan & Motorhome Show 2009 at the NEC, Birmingham from 13-18 October.

All models have a striking new profile with a new low-line over-cab design that cleverly allows space for moulded internal front lockers spacious enough for bedding. The fresh new all white exteriors have sporty and tasteful new graphics, larger exterior locker doors for easy access and the accommodation door has been fitted with central locking.

The Star range has enhanced specification and now focuses on two 6 metre models. The popular 3 berth Sportstar with its large rear storage area is carried forward and the new 2 berth Starfire, with parallel front seating and end kitchen and washroom will be launched later in the season at the February NEC show.

The model line-up of the higher specification Star Plus range continues unchanged with Startrail, Starburst and Stardream. These benefit from an AL-KO low line chassis designed to improve stability, road holding and cornering performance.

Considerable care and attention has gone into the interior design with gloss walnut trim on locker doors which have push button locks for secure loading, new fabrics and improved lighting to the cab lounge area which includes energy saving LEDs. A heating outlet has also been added in the cab along with a passenger airbag as standard. Additional touches include gas struts on seat tops for easy access, 5 mains 230V sockets to meet modern demands and a microwave oven now fitted as standard.

The high quality kitchen has new style cream locker doors with stainless steel finish appliances and a new sink with a glass lid. The Star Plus models all now have the famous Autocruise swing out kitchen unit with extending worktop space and the Stardream has a new option of a chest of draws in lieu of the wrap around seating.

Washrooms are well equipped with the new Thetford C250 toilet and some models feature the award-winning SwingWall ShowerTM.

The Driving Range consists of two larger motorhomes providing even more space, innovations and technology as standard. The Augusta and Oakmont are built on an AL-KO chassis giving a better overall quality of ride and feature the same detailed changes as the Star Plus range.

The higher specification firmly positions it in the luxury market sector, offering all the improvements and features of the Star Plus range with the addition of alloy wheels, cab air-conditioning, cruise control, roll out awning, reversing camera and Alde radiator central heating and hot water system as standard. Details like fresh and waste water tank heaters also make these models true all year round vehicles.

Ample sleeping room is provided in both models, with comfortable fixed beds and separate lounge areas have a large Heki rooflight and a new cupboard to neatly house a flat screen TV mounted on a bracket. A mains socket has also been added to the cab area.

Innovative kitchen layouts the feature new style cream locker doors with stainless steel finish appliances and good storage and work top solutions. Sinks now feature a glass lid and the Augusta also benefits from a swing out unit.

Both models have a large separate shower cubicle, the latest Thetford C250 toilet and neatly integrated sink with useful storage cabinet.

Nick Page, Commercial Director of Autocruise owners Swift Group commented, ‘The new Autocruise coachbuilt range offers a distinctly different choice in exterior look and interior design for those looking for a stylish motorhome with a more traditional feel inside.’
