Italy is synonymous with high style and the Mizar proves it is a well-deserved reputation – but the quality on display here is more than just skin deep.
Sumptuously equipped throughout; top-class workmanship.
Lounge table top is prone to coming loose; large rear garage only holds 100kg.
There are rounded edges on all the seat squabs and cushions in the L-shaped seating arrangement and the twin side sofa in the lounge. When on the road, the L-shaped part of the lounge has a hard-backed squab cushion that’s easily removed.
There is a small step down from the living area into the cab, but with the cab seats swivelled and raised, and after sliding the table into place, five can dine here. There are spotlights on the underside of the overhead lockers and a TV bracket above the sofa. A diesel-fired Webasto heater warms the living area with blown air, and vents route heat to the sleeping areas.
The L-shaped kitchen is small but well-equipped. It has a built-in extractor fan and attractive, integrated lighting which floods the area. The sink is fitted with a swivel lid which doubles as extra workspace, but there’s no drainer.
Our test model came with three large gas hobs integrated with the worksurface, and a combined oven and grill above the massive 170-litre fridge/freezer. However, UK buyers will get a traditional four-burner hob, grill and oven.
The large washroom has a rounded bulkhead to fit in with the stylish curves throughout the ’van, and comes with a decent-sized, cylindrical, separate shower with a rigid sliding door and a skylight above. There’s plenty of room around the swivel-head Thetford toilet, and a basin and vanity unit that are both admirably fit for purpose.
The overcab area has a roof light as well as windows and twin downlighters on either side. A moulded tray at the front end can be used for storing knick-knacks at bedtime.
The aluminium-framed, slatted bed base is hinged and easily lifts up, or pulls down, on gas struts. This is a genuine overcab space, enough for adult guests or grown-up children to use.
The transverse rear double bed sits atop the garage, and a small flap conceals the ladder, stashed in the roof of the garage, which slides out at bedtime.
Despite a bolted-on chassis extension at the back, the massive rear garage has a disappointing maximum payload of 100kg. However, the hard-wearing chequerplate floor, the floor runners with fixing hooks, and a shower point are useful features.
The rounded floor-to-ceiling wardrobe should swallow four people’s clothes with ease. Overhead lockers throughout are positive locking, with stylishly concealed finger latches. There is extra wire-rack storage in the garage space, which you get at from inside the motorhome via a sliding door. Overall, there’s plenty of space to swallow up your allowable 775kg payload.
