Swift’s Escape range was launched back in 2009, and it’s testament to the brand’s enduring popularity that it’s still going stronger than ever. This began as a range for those who were looking for a modern, budget coachbuilt; while those traits remain, these days it looks a lot more classy – it can easily hold its own among other, more expensive models. 

The range received a major revamp in 2017, but 2019 sees an arguably even more exciting development – the launch of a new Escape sub-brand, the Compact. 

The demand for compacts has grown, so this is timely, and the range features a trio of layouts that are likely to prove very popular. 

One – the C205 – has a lift up, transverse bed over a garage, while the other two – the C402 and C404 both feature a rear lounge. All come in at less than six metres in length, and are narrower than the standard Escape, making them easier to drive on country roads or through busy towns.
