Swift Challenger 2017


The 2017 Swift Challenger range is comprised of nine models, including a 2 berth, seven 4 berths and one 6 berth and a great variety of layouts. An upgrade to SMART Plus construction together with stunning new aesthetic design means that the Challenger looks set to be a very popular addition to, and evolution of the Swift brand.

The Challenger has a top of the range feel to it, due to, in part, the new sweeping front profile with flush fitting windows and sunroof above. Swift Group’s exclusive rear LED light clusters have been incorporated into the rear panels, providing increased visibility during poor weather as well as being more robust and very stylish, also the side marker running lights have been replaced with LEDs.
