The original Solera has the characteristic behind front axle door, this gives it an appearance of a very small coach. It has become a popular choice for independent coach companies. It is still available in a slightly updated form to match the styling of the Solera HD.
The Solera HD is a much updated form of the original. It removes the characteristic doorway with a conventional layout with the door ahead of the front axle. The styling has been updated to match the rest of the Optare coach range. The rollbars create a big coach appearance.
