Following its takeover by Swift Group in 2007, Autocruise ceased building coachbuilt motorhomes and instead focused on panel van conversions. The Alto is one such vehicle – in this case designed for three people, but in reality most likely to be used as a couple’s ’van.

Like all Swift motorhomes, the Alto is built at the Autocruise factory at Mexborough. Here the workforce has been kept busy as demand for Swift Group motorhomes has been growing. With six different Autocruise models available, the brand offers a good choice within Swift’s portfolio. The manufacturer has a reputation for building quality motorhomes, and the overall finish of all Autocruises is hard to fault.

We took a look at the improved fixed-bed Alto layout, which is based on the latest Peugeot Boxer cab with its smart daytime running LED lights. As with all Autocruise models, you can choose to have a Fiat cab instead of the Peugeot Boxer to have Comfortmatic transmission (not available on the Boxer).
