Watch our new video to see why the new Challenger and Eccles ranges are built with comfort and all seasons in mind

Swift has unveiled their brand new Swift Challenger and Sterling Eccles ranges for 2016, offering two quality mid-ranges set to appeal to couples and families alike.

Borrowing the very best elements from the Challenger Sport and Challenger SE model ranges, the Swift Challenger/Sterling Eccles certainly looks set to impress, whilst featuring a brand new exterior GRP, panoramic sunroof and more to provide for a seamless design. New LED clusters on the outside, similar to what has been featured on Swift Elegance and Sterling Continental in recent years, add to the modern feel of the ranges which is apparent inside and out.

Elsewhere on the outside new flush windows add an element of quality, whilst bike mounting bars come as standard for those looking to take in their surroundings and explore the great outdoors on two wheels.

Moving inside, upgraded features come as standard, including gloss locker doors, as well as the option of having a new Alde central heating system implemented to ensure a comfortable stay whenever you choose, wherever you are. Speaking of comfort, Swift have also introduced their new Airwave construction to seating and bedding, comprised of two layers of foam for more comfort and durability.

Aware that caravanning has become a pastime for all seasons, Swift has also included class-leading insulation within the Challenger and Eccles' bodyshell, as well as the option of two heating systems, namely the standard Truma 6 combi heater and optional Alde central heating.

Also new for 2016 is the addition of SMART Plus, Swift's latest enhanced intelligent construction technology designed to enhance roof and floor structure and enable better protection from the elements.
