“First Place for Space”With features tailored to UK buyers, this Benimar Is a tempting option in the entry-level coachbuilt market.
“This Primero 202 is built in Spain solely for the UK market (and sold exclusively by Marquis Leisure). It is a low-profile model based, like almost all of its rivals, on a Fiat Ducato base. The 202 (one of four models in this new range) has four berths and four travel seats, but it works best as a two-person ‘van.”
“Unusually for an import, the habitation door is on the UK side, and (like all Primeros) it’s compact, too, at fractionally under six metres long. The driving sensation was speed without haste, comfort without indulgence, and efficiency over style. The typical 2.3-litre, 130bhp, Euro 6 diesel engine moves the motorhome along effortlessly, while the lowered Camper chassis with its wider rear track ensure good stability.”
“There’s a generous payload, too, even without the optional upgrade to a 3,650kg gross weight. You’ll not find a digital radio in the cab, but there’s a standard 12V socket and a USB port left of centre on the dashboard, handy for charging or running gadgets. You get cruise control and a passenger airbag, too, as well as cab air-conditioning – all without recourse to a pack of options.”
