Sunroofs now fitted as standard

A big feature of the 2012 Sport range was the optional front sunroof, now a hallmark of most Sterling tourers. Swift Group report that about 90% of 2012 sales included the £305 sunroof option; so it’s good to see that it will be standard equipment for 2013.

In common with all 2013 Swift Group tourers, Sport models get a Tracker ‘Retrieve’ Thatcham approved tracking system, which will attract a discount from most insurance companies, and they come with Swift Group’s factory-backed 10-year body integrity warranty.

Heater and fridge upgrades

2013 Sports also get a Truma dual fuel Combi-Boiler, with programmable timing, which delivers hot water and blown-air central heating. It replaces the traditional space heater and separate water heater but fits in the water heater space, freeing up the heater area for convenient extra storage and saving weight. Fridges are upgraded to the latest Thetford 113 litre models with a smart gloss black finish. They have LED touch control of energy source and temperature.


Other notable features of the range are 2.25m overall width for all models and 1.95m headroom. Europa fixed bed models used to be 2.30m wide but the 50mm difference in the bedroom is not a problem. Al-Ko’s ATC trailer control system is standard.  There are four 230v sockets, including two in a ‘pod’ on the front shelf, and lighting is mainly low-energy LED. Al-Ko’s ‘Secure’ wheel-lock and an intruder alarm remain as options.

The eight-model 2012 line-up grew to 11 with the mid-season launches of the twin-bed 564, island double bed 584 and six-berth 585. For 2013 the small end-kitchen two-berth 382 is dropped, as is the double dinette, end washroom 544, leaving a line-up of nine.

The only layout to be modified is the six-berth twin-axle 636. It has lost its triple bunk arrangement in favour of a more conventional double bunk to give growing children more space. The sixth berth now fits over the side dinette.

The 524 has the classic four-berth end washroom layout, with a small centre dinette, that works so well as a spacious two-berth and a grandparents van. It has the same stylish washroom as the 442.
