Carrying a popular layout wrapped in a stylish, silver body, this 2018 twin-single-bed Adria motorhome will definitely turn heads on site – take a look!
Slovenian manufacturer Adria – now more than 50 years old – has a large and loyal following here in the UK, and it’s known for producing well-priced and well-built motorhomes.
What’s more, Coral is a hugely popular brand, too, which has also come to represent good-value motorcaravanning over the years.
But even great things can be bettered, of course, so it’s pleasing to see that the Coral line-up has received a raft of changes for the 2018 season, helping to keep it fresh.
Most notable of these is the fact that it’s now available in a trio of trim levels: entry-level Axess, Plus, and – as on our test ’van – the top-of-the-range Supreme.
The Adria motorhome on test is on the Fiat Ducato – opt for the Axess spec level and you’ll get the Citroën Relay base vehicle.
Our test ‘van was also fitted with an automatic gearbox, which is a cost option (prices had yet to be confirmed as we went to press).
The subject of this review is the Coral 670 SLT. It, like the rest of the standard Coral range, is a low-profile.
It’s in the Supreme specification – the giveaway from the outside is the all-silver body.
This is a model that’s been carried over from last year, which isn’t really surprising: its fixed-single bed, end-washroom layout is currently very popular across Europe.
Aside from that specification-level tweak, one other notable change is the addition of Adria’s new ‘Sky Roof’ concept: that’s shorthand for the double rooflight that’s been inserted over the cab and further back.
Lounging & dining
Step into the Adria Coral Supreme 670 SLT’s lounge – aka the Sky Lounge – and you’ll find that the area feels really bright and airy.
Both of the cab seats swivel, allowing five to dine in comfort (although the nearside sofa has a narrow base).
The same number of people can also travel, thanks to the offside seat that can be converted into a homologated belted chair when you’re on the road.
The dining table, here finished in the smart and modern, but not wholly practical, Symphony White colour scheme can also be moved in all directions to reach every occupant.
The cab seats themselves are very comfortable, whether you’re at the table or behind the Fiat Ducato wheel.
This year there’s no step out of the lounge: there’s a completely flat floor throughout the ‘van, which is great news if you’re prone to tripping over them.
On the nearside is a Dometic three-burner gas hob, a combined Thetford oven and grill, and a sink with a cover that splits in two to allow you to store it in a drawer when it’s not needed.
It also doubles up as work surface – handy, given that there’s not a huge amount here otherwise.
Opposite sits a Thetford 167-litre fridge with separate freezer compartment.
This is perfect if you’re a couple who want the convenience of being able to access the washroom at night without waking your partner.
The mattresses here are thick and comfortable, and both of the bed heads lift to help prop you up if you want to read at night. USB sockets under the lockers at the foot of each bed are a useful addition, too.
Technically the lounge makes up into a one-and-a-bit-berth bed (6’11” x 2’-3’7”), but this 3+1-berth ’van will almost certainly appeal more to couples.
Besides, the rear berths can be shut off from the rest of the ’van by a door: doing so means that guests up front will need to go through to access the washroom at night.
Elsewhere here you’ll find a Thetford electric-flush swivel toilet, a couple of good-sized cupboards, a smart sink, and a separate shower cubicle with bi-fold door and radiator.
As well as those washroom cupboards, you’ll also find places to stash kit under the beds and in the multitude of lockers that you’ll find around the ’van.
You also get external access to both under-bed spaces, plus there's under-floor storage for valuables.

It’s not cheap, but it’s great to see a tried-and-tested layout complemented by modern tweaks that really bring the Coral up to date.
The backing of Adria’s 10-year water-ingress warranty is a real bonus, too.
