Polch/Boppard, 2 July 2018 – With a spacious comfort bath, a large spa shower and constantly high water pressure, the bathroom aboard a Flair offers all the comforts of home – with plenty of room and an abundance of luxury. These features were previously only appreciated and enjoyed by Flair owners – until now. For the first time, they are now also available in an Arto together with an island bed (“queen’s bed”). It’s all about the combination: the spacious luxury bathroom is one of the most distinctive features of the Arto 88 LF. And the width of the bed has been extended from 1.40 metres to a more comfortable 1.50 metres. Thanks to a solid wood sliding door, the bedroom can be separated from the bathroom. The overhead cabinets mounted all around the bed ensure the Arto 88 LF is packed with a variety of clever storage options, while the additional coat hooks are ideal for hanging jackets or bags. In addition to the Arto 88 LF, Niesmann+Bischoff has unveiled a second new layout for the 2019 model year in the form of the Arto 88 B. Among its most striking features are the spacious Flair bathroom combined with the bar version of the seating area. A good night’s sleep is also guaranteed – the rear area of the new bar version also accommodates two single beds, each with a length of two metres.
A total of 13 different layouts – with countless optional extras
In addition to the new layouts, in future Arto drivers (just like Flair drivers) can look forward to numerous exciting new features and upgrades. All models in the 2019 line up (13 different layouts in total) are available with a second interior furnishing package based on a light oak look: “Verade Oak – modern line”. The wall cupboard doors come in white with a matte finish as standard. In addition, white gloss and wood coloured variants are available. The new style collection also includes a floor-covering in a grey stone tile look. And for a touch of class in the kitchen area, the mirror on the window features a glossy black frame. Take a look inside the inviting wellness bathroom and the attractive metal fittings are sure to catch your eye. The shower column is finished in black and backlit, thus contributing to the inviting atmosphere, while the shower grid also features a stylish black design. Comfort clearly remains a top priority throughout the vehicle – and especially in the living area. For example, the back cushions have been redesigned to include an integrated wedge that improves comfort while sitting. Two new basic upholstery styles based on shades of grey and green are available, both of which perfectly complement the bright ambience of the “Verade Oak – modern line” interior. Alongside the optional beige and black leather upholstery, a brown leather option is now also available.
When entering the vehicle via the large body door, the solid metal handle is a welcome surprise. In addition, the body batteries have been moved downwards to create a lower centre of gravity and additional storage space in the double floor – this can optionally be equipped with practical storage boxes.
High-quality optional extras – including LED headlights
It’s also worth taking a look at the extensive list of optional extras. For example, a mineral composite variant is available for the kitchen worktop, which features a molded washbasin in a white stone finish to ensure a uniform look regardless of the chosen furniture style. The new genuine slate décor in quartz grey looks particularly classy: “Black Star” can be fitted in the entrance area and behind the washbasin in the bathroom. In addition to the “Green Grass” option, there is now also an ambient lighting package with a reed-effect finish, which can be added to the interior door and the bedroom. To ensure you can see – and be seen – better, LED headlights that provide greater illumination and a brighter light are now also available. The new customisation options for the vehicle’s front, rear, skirt and mirror caps are equally eye-catching – with five trendy colours to choose from. The same applies to the new “Maxi” side wall décors.
