Innovations for 2017
Following major surgery last year, there are only a few changes to the Swift Bolero, with 2016's debutant, the two-berth 612EK, getting the chop.
Four Boleros make the cut this year, all of which get the Euro 6 engine and the new Ritz soft furnishings scheme inside.
The an optional Vogue pack is retained, which would add air con, cruise control, a twin-view reversing camera and TV aerial.
All models are four-berths, containing four travel seats or a lounge option, with their chassis heavier than 3500kg.
The models comprise of the 684FB - a front dinette/rear French bed; 3700kg chassis, the 714SB - front dinette/fixed twin single beds; 4250kg chassis, the 724FB - front dinette/rear French bed/end washroom; 4250kg chassis and the 744PR - front dinette/rear lounge; 4250kg chassis.
OThe 684FB comes with a 130bhp power output as standard but for the other three models, 150bhp is preferred.
As last year, parallel lounges are available in lieu of dinettes in the 684FB, 714SB and 724FB, making them two-berth vans with two travel seats.
As with every model in the Swift Motorhomes stable the Bolero comes backed up by a ten-year water ingress warranty, for added peace of mind.
