The sporty compact Rio, with its distinctive front profile, is an integral member of Swift’s exclusive Black Edition Range, incorporating a black metallic cab and Black Edition graphics. The Euro 6 130bhp 2.3 litre engine delivers plenty of power, new reversing sensors are included for easier parking, and storage is boosted with the addition of a new pannier locker to the 320 and 340.
With the agile dimensions of a panel van and the home comforts of coachbuilt luxury, the Rio is an innovative range that offers three models, two of which feature an ingenious lift-up rear tailgate. Weighing in at 3.5 tonnes they can be driven on a standard car licence.
With a more durable build courtesy of SMART construction, incorporating balanced panel GRP side walls, the Rio is set for adventure.
With the exciting Rio motorhome range, compact does not mean compromise. The ‘Cordone’ soft furnishing scheme features an espresso textured fabric to the seat edges with a pebble coloured ‘SwiftShield’ infill that has been cleverly treated to resist stains.
A Truma Combi 4 boiler provides ample heating and hot water and there is a well equipped kitchen with the exclusive Dometic CU600 oven. The washroom houses everything you need; a basin, toilet and shower, plus mini LED downlights.
Bringing modern technology with an ‘app’ interface, the enhanced Swift Command system makes it easy to remotely monitor and control onboard functions like heating and lighting. The system incorporates the option to subscribe to a pre-installed Thatcham Category 6 approved pro-active tracker, to better protect your precious possessions.
Lighting throughout is LED with dimmable under locker spotlights and overlocker lights in the rear lounge (model specific), and there is a stepwell light for safer access. There are even low-level night lights that operate when travelling and an illuminated kitchen splashback.
The ingenious lift-up rear tailgate models (320 and 340) give you easy access to the generous inter-seat storage area for housing your leisure and sporting gear.
