New Models 2014: Adria Matrix
ADRIA IS A Slovenian manufacturer that has been building leisure vehicles for 48 years. It is now one of the UK's leading import brands in terms of both sales volumes and its dealer network around the country.
The brand's reputation for well built, innovative and well priced motorhomes seems to be continuing with the 2014 model range. The trump card is the wide variety which they offer, building van conversions, low-profiles and A-classes.
To give even more choice, you can choose between base vehicles, including Renault and Fiat. However, the 2014 offering has been simplified.
Adria's coachbuilt motorhomes are built on a range of base vehicles, including Renault.
Adria has applied a three-tier specification approach to the Matrix range.
2014 Adria Matrix: three levels of kit
This entry-level kit choice has a rear kitchen and lounge, in a 'van that is just 5.99m long. The new furniture includes stylish a white table and kitchen workshop.
The rear kitchen has stylish white work tops, as does the table in the lounge area.
This offers three models: the Island-bed 670 SC, the 680 SP with transverse rear bed, and the Supreme.
The Matrix Axess has a rear garage for extra storage.
The Supreme is a Renault Master-based model and has two layouts. If you want twin beds at the rear, go for the 687 SL, or alternatively the 687 SLT has a rear washroom.
The Matrix Supreme 687 SL has twin rear beds.
The Matrix range of low-profiles is Adria's crossover range; very luxurious but still keenly priced.
