Innovations for 2017
The iconic flagship in Swift's motorhome fleet, like several of its counterparts, goes forward to 2017 largely unchanged.
The five models from the previous year go into the next but with certain changes such as a new Fiat Euro 6 engine and 150bhp output as standard.
There are four Kon-Tiki four-berths making up the bulk of the range, including the 625 - front dinette/rear island bed - the 635 - front dinette/fixed twin single beds - the 669 - tag-axle, front dinette/rear island bed - and the 679 - tag-axle, front dinette/transverse rear bed.
The one six-berth in the line-up is the tag-axle overcab 649, which sports a front dinette and rear lounge.
Although primarily low-line coachbuilts, the 669 and 679 can be ordered as high-lines with overcab beds offering two extra berths.
For 2017, Swift Kon-Tiki interiors benefit from a new soft furnishing scheme and a leather upholstery option, called Winchester Stone.
Innovations for 2016
Swift's top motorhome range, the Kon-Tiki, enjoys an enhanced combination of comfort, practicality and design innovation for 2016. Soft furnishings and interior finishes have been designed to continue offering more opulence whilst the range's 'Black Edition' status provides premium specification as standard.
The Kon-Tiki's spacious interiors provide the maximum in comfort and practicality, whilst the 'Carabu' soft furnishing scheme which features SwiftShield, a stain resistant fabric that keeps its good looks, should allow you to relax in style. A part leather option is also available.
To add to the above, the Kon-Tiki's interior can be lit with overlocker lighting, dimmable spots and the feature lit kitchen splashback all of which use energy efficient LEDs, managing to create a warm, relaxing environment whatever the weather.
For additional comfort, all fixed beds are fitted with the exclusive Duvalay Duvalite mattress, containing lightweight yet sumptuously comfortable memory fibre technology.
Fully equipped, the Kon-tiki comes with an impressive specification, including kitchen work surfaces made from HI-MACS natural acrylic stone, a non-porous, dirt-repellent surface and an exclusive Dometic CU600 oven has improved performance and noise reduction.
New for 2016, the Swift Command control system features a new intelligent power supply unit with LCD control panel; many functions can be controlled/monitored remotely via the new Swift Command App.
Suitable for all year round use, Swift's Kon-tiki models come with Alde radiator central heating to quickly warm the interior, as well as a 120W solar panel, exterior shower and BBQ point for alfresco living during those warmer months.
