The Iconic VW T2 Goes Electric
Brand New Swift Escape 674 – 2023 Model, 140 BHP Automatic, Overview, This perennially popular motorhome enjoyed a total makeover inside and out in 2022, creating an inviting space that welcomes you again and again. Built with proprietary SMART construction, Escape’s sleek profile is enhanced with a NEW Fiat cab in metallic Iron Grey and complementary graphics. Each model now benefits from a garage space with services and interior access, plus a wide external entrance door with window. Step inside and marvel at the revolutionised living space that enjoys an increased height of 2110mm, and is designed with domestic-style seating in the parallel lounge, including space-efficient Aguti travelling seats and a rise and fall table. Two models also feature a drop down bed. Completely restyled for a more contemporary look, Escape presents premium finishes, lighter textiles, minimal woodgrain, streamlined new furniture and high-gloss cream lockers with textured metal inlay, while a warm, homely feel is evoked by soft yet efficient lighting and market-leading Truma heating. The redesigned washroom with dedicated shower continues to announce the modern makeover, enhanced by high-gloss wallboard, LED downlights and ample storage especially in the 640. In the kitchen area, a Series 10 Dometic slim-line fridge-freezer, flat-bed microwave and upgraded Thetford Triplex combination oven and grill, with 3-burner gas hob, new electric hotplate and pan storage drawer, allow fabulous meals to be enjoyed along the way. The all new cab with ergonomic dashboard benefits from user-friendly features such as a 7” touchscreen HD colour display with Apple Car PlayTM, encased within the black-trimmed dashboard design, while extra driveability is delivered via cruise control and steering wheel controls, and air conditioning maintains a comfortable environment.
