FOR 2021, ADRIA  has a new look for its Matrix and Coral low-profile ranges. In Supreme and Plus spec, both Matrix and Coral now have a more aerodynamic profile, with a 15% larger sunroof.

On Matrix models, which are fitted with drop-down beds over the lounge, this can be opened, while on Coral, it remains sealed because the large rooflight over the front lounge can be opened.

Rear panels look sleeker, with an air deflector and a three-piece bumper with LEDs designed exclusively for Adria by Hella,

The whole vehicle has been raised in height by 7cm, so there is now a technical double floor stretching almost to the rear. A fresh-water tank, increased in size to 115 litres, can now be located between the axles.

The drop-down bed in the Matrix is on steel cords, with a hidden mechanism, so the bed is now 2.0 x 1.3m. It also rises higher, providing more headroom.

Axess spec models, meanwhile, remain as they were last season, as do the company’s A-class Sonic ‘vans.

The Compact range has a new SC layout, featuring an island bed and a partition that curves around to shut off not just the bedroom, but the Vario washroom as well.

The Twin van conversion line-up will include the 640SGX, the first raising-roof model that Adria has sold in the UK for over a decade.

The 640SPB family layout includes a removable double bunk bed up near the roof, above a standard transverse double below. The latter can be folded to provide more storage space.

Adria: A quick history

You don’t often hear about Slovenia, but this small country is home to one of the largest motorhome manufacturers in Europe.

Adria started production in 1965 in what was then Yugoslavia and despite the political upheavals since, it is now the market leader in a large number of European countries – including some that have their own motorhome firms.

Everything is produced in Europe’s largest motorhome factory in Novo Mesto, and exported right across the Continent (Adrias are particularly popular in Scandinavia) and further afield, too. The company has been a major presence in the UK motorhome and caravan markets since the 1980s.

Having been independently owned for much of its history, two years ago Adria became the latest brand to be acquired by one of a group of multinationals that are dominating the industry, when it joined the French-based Trigano Group.
