The interior of the Challenger benefits from quality, advanced design and attention to detail. The 'Mali Acacia' wood grain and beautiful fabrics offer a rich, comfortable living environment whilst the contour of the front panel ensures maximum headroom throughout. There is lots of easily accessible locker space and the panoramic sunroof allows excellent views outside. The Swift Challenger features well equipped kitchens and washrooms and offers you a choice of flexible seating and sleeping arrangements. With six layouts to choose from there is a Challenger to suit couples and families alike.
