Giottiline unveils all-new 2024 low-profiles in bid to appeal to UK market

Giottiline Siena 386

Italian motorhome manufacturer, Giottiline, which is part of the Rapido Group, has unveiled four all-new low-profile models.

The manufacturer, which has appointed Brownhills in Newark as a main dealer to join the two existing Giottiline dealers, Wandahome and Yourstyle, expects the launch of its new models to increase its appeal to UK buyers.

Three of new coachbuilts, the Toscan 74NF, the Toscan 74GC and the Toscan 69GC are in the Toscan range, which replaces the Therry as the brand’s flagship line-up.

All three are built on the Citroën Relay as standard but there is an option to have it based on the Fiat Ducato and the Peugeot Boxer.

The 69GC is 6.99m long and features a twin rear single bed layout with the beds above a garage, which is large enough for cycles (1.19m high).

It has four belted travel seats with an option for a fifth.

The Toscan 74GC has a similar twin rear bed layout and also a garage capable of carrying bicycles but is built on a longer 7.42m chassis.

Finally, the 74NF also sits on the longer 7.42m chassis and features an electrically adjustable rear island bed, which sits above a slight shorter garage (1.16m reducing to 0.86m), but which is still capable of carrying a cycle.

At the front are facing sofas (the other two Toscans have a forward-facing half dinette and a side-facing single seat).

All three have an electric drop-down double bed above the lounge making all three four-berth models and all have a garage capacity of 300kg.

The Toscan low-profiles have extras such as an opening overcab Skylight made of glass in three sections, which sits in an all-new one-piece fibreglass roof.

They also get a new extra-wide (600mm) habitation door with blind, flyscreen and an electric window, plus central locking linked to the base vehicle, and the option for new white or grey thermoformed strips framing the exterior rear panel.

Other extras include twin-lens rear camera, full LED rear lights, handleless cabinets and drawers, a new kitchen design, enhanced LED interior lighting, a new 167-litre flat-door fridge (model specific) and a choice of standard (lighter) colour tone or a darker Elegance finish to the interior.

Joining this trio is the all-new Ford Transit-based Siena 386, which is a 6.99m-long five-berth as standard and a six-berth as an option.

This new Siena comes with rear transverse bunk beds (2.19m by 0.91m) and a large electric drop-down double over the lounge (1.92m by 1.49m reducing to 1.26m), plus one or (optionally) two more berths that can be created from the lounge, either the standard single (2.15m by 1.13m) or an optional double bed (2.15m by 1.60m).

It can also carry up to six people thanks to a rear half-dinette with two forward-facing travel seats and two rear-facing single travel seats, along with the two swivel cab captain’s chairs.

The central kitchen comes with a three-burner gas hob and plenty of storage, although some of this will be taken by an oven which is likely to be specified for the UK market by the British dealers.

Giottiline has also introduced a new options pack – the Premier Edition – for the Ford-based Siena models.

This combines two existing packs – the Siena and the Privilege packs – and adds extras such as an automatic gearbox, 16in black alloy wheels, a 170bhp engine, a Sony radio with 9in screen, pleated cab blinds, carpets, plus other extras, such as exclusive upholstery, all as standard.

In other changes to the Siena range, the 390, 395, 397 and 440 all now get the 167-litre Trivalent flat-door fridge.

The arrival of these models sees Giottiline producing four ranges: Siena (eight low-profiles, four of which are on either a Citroën, Fiat or Peugeot and four on the Ford Transit, as well as two overcabs on the Citroën, Fiat or Peugeot).

Joining these is the GiottiCompact range of two low-profile models based on either the Citroën, Fiat or Peugeot, which remain unchanged for this season.

Four GiottiVan campervans, of which the UK will only get three as the new Ford-based 60FT campervan is not available in right-hand drive.

The UK market gets the Citroën, Fiat or Peugeot-based 54T (5.41m, rear transverse double), 60T (5.99m, rear transverse double), and the 60B (5.99m, rear transverse bunks).

At the top of the tree is the Toscan range of three all-new low-profiles.

Prices for the 2024 range have not yet been confirmed.
