AUTOSTAR - the French manufacturer's debut on the Polish market
The AUTOSTAR brand belonging to the TRIGANO group, represented by TRANSA-M from Pszczyna, at the Camper Caravan Show 2020 in Nadarzyn , will present the manufacturer's new products for the 2021 season. This year's fair will be unique - AUTOSTAR is making its debut in Poland and for the first time the models of this brand will be presented at trade fairs.
Thoughtful and comfortable Autostar motorhomes
AUTOSTAR is a producer of well-thought-out and well-equipped semi-integrated and integrated vehicles with a common DNA, which is based on the brand's philosophy based on several key assumptions. The vehicles are to be durable and resistant to weather conditions (e.g. hail) and mechanical damage - a 7-year warranty on the tightness of the body is a commitment that the manufacturer can afford in connection with the use of polyester resin laminate in the structure of the roof, walls and floor. All-year-round use requires appropriate insulation - here, extruded polystyrene with increased density, completely waterproof, as well as a support frame made of PVC profiles resistant to rust or decay (unlike aluminum profiles, it does not conduct heat and does not contribute to the formation of thermal bridges). In terms of the thermal comfort of passengers, the driver has even thought about efficiently heating the cab, which is forgotten by many premium segment manufacturers. AUTOSTAR has also taken seriously the issues of heating distribution, air exchange and the use of thermal curtains wherever there is a potential for cold (Ventil 'Plus). The range of vehicles includes the PRIVILEGE, PASSION and PPRESTIGE series with lengths from 659-759 cm. The common denominator in all models is the base vehicle Fiat Ducato.
It should be added that AUTOSTAR has been offering ALDE heating in its motorhomes since 1989. Their buildings have class III insulation , which according to BS EN 1645-1 means that when the heating is turned on, the temperature inside should be kept at + 20 ° C, while the outside the temperature is -15 ° C. For comparison, class II insulation can maintain the internal temperature at + 20 ° C only to 0 ° C outside.
Passion bodies have a double technical floor , while the PRESTIGE models based on the ALKO frame have a full double floor .
What's new in 2021 in Autostar?
AUTOSTAR is a brand with enormous experience and tradition, which is reflected in the technologies and solutions used. Belonging to the TRIGANO group allows the brand to benefit from the "back office" and support of the producer group, but in many areas the brand follows its own path, focusing on its own identity. In 2021, the CELTIC EDITION series of integrated bodies promises to be continued, which in the 2020 season was very popular due to its extensive standard equipment and attractive price. A characteristic visual "flavor" of this series is the design of the furniture in the shade of light CHENE CLAIR oak. The CELTIC EDITION will include 2 models - I660 (659 cm) and I730 LC (739 cm). The equipment package is extremely attractive, which in this version can be purchased on preferential terms - we have everything here: from a multimedia station with a navigation system, through a camera system providing a 360-degree view, Truma 4000 EH gas or 230V, 16-inch heating aluminum rims, an additional set of textile cushions and covers or a factory solar set.
The new system in the list of integrated models promises to be interesting - the I 721 will be available in the PRIVILEGE variant (the basic model with the designation I721LC Lift) and in the PASSION variant (721LCA Lift with a double technical floor and richer equipment).
The length of both vehicles is 7.21 m, which significantly improves the loading capacity and makes it easier to comply with the GVM of up to 3,500 kg. The basic features of the I721 system include a face to face lounge (for travel time, pull-out Isofix armchairs), an XXL king bed, a large 175L fridge and an interesting and practical system of a pull-out table top in the kitchen.

A motorhome for demanding customers
PRESTIGE EDITION is a series whose target group are customers looking for a well-equipped, all-year-round motorhome (including heated ALDE), based on an ALKO frame with a double floor with a GVM of 4500 kg.
A new front end has been introduced with a muscular black grille, light connector and LED headlights, which will initially only be available in 2 versions - the I790 LC and the I790 LJ.
The PRESTIGE EDITION series will usher in a new design for the front of the cab.

The quality of the materials used, modern, bright and minimalistic design and space with a large "P" - all this, combined with considerable reserves in terms of additional loading, indicates that this vehicle has a chance to sharply "mix" vehicles over 3.5 tons in the Premium segment. Certainly, it is a proposition worthy of attention, taking into account the applied solutions in terms of construction, tightness of the building and great design.
Half-integrals - new, manoeuvrable, compact
In 2021, the overall portfolio of semi- integrated models will include the new PERFORMANCE series with 2 models: P680LJ (longitudinal beds) and P690LC LIFT (double queen size bed). The bodywork width from the outside is only 216 cm (standard in this type of vehicle is 230-235 cm), and the length in both cases is less than 7 meters. The height is 279 cm (the standard height of the Privilege series half-integrated is 292 cm). The vehicles are therefore easy to maneuver, yet functional and, importantly, cheaper than the bigger brothers. It is a great alternative for people considering buying a campervan or a vehicle with a built-in structure for the so-called sheet metal for a trip of 2 to a maximum of 3 people (3 berth in the front of the vehicle).

See how neatly this model looks:
In total, the brand's model portfolio will include 4 semi-integrated models and as many as 15 integrated models. The Caravan Show 2020 will be an opportunity to see the new AUTOSTAR products on 23-25.10 in Nadarzyn, where the exclusive distributor of the brand in Poland - TRANSA-M will present not only vehicles of this brand, but also RANDGER and CHAUSSON campers, of which it is an authorized dealer.
