New Volkswagen California


Select Your Options

The California campervan from Volkswagen is all you need for an open-road adventure. Add your own touch through personalisation options, and you are all set to go. Volkswagen offers the California campervan in either the California Beach or the California SE editions. The California Beach has plenty of room to sleep four and accommodate all your kit, while the California SE is equipped with all the amenities of home to ensure that, no matter how far you go, you’ll always have your creature comforts.

With room in the cabin for up to five people, the California campervan is a quiet, spacious and pleasurable place to travel. When you get peckish, the California is ready with a fully fitted kitchen and a choice of inside or al fresco dining. Transform the interior into an all-weather dining space by spinning the front seats around, or use the folding chairs for picnics. The California is designed to accommodate four adults to rest when the sun sets, with two airy and comfortable sleeping areas: one accessed by setting the rear seats flat, and one above by extending the roof upwards.

The California is built ready for the road, and its drivetrain is set to take you anywhere you want to go. Optional 4Motion all-wheel drive is a powerful and capable system that manoeuvres the California over any terrain. Designed with BlueMotion Technology, the ultra-efficient 2.0 litre TDI engines that power the California save energy with an automatic start/stop function and more efficient transmission.

There are two options in the Beach model for power at 112bhp and 138bhp, depending on your requirements. The 112bhp engine delivers an impressive 40.4mpg on the combined cycle, and the 138bhp option accelerates to 60mph in around 14 seconds. The SE model offers an additional engine option producing 178bhp; the BiTDI Twin Turbo diesel engine. Cruise control helps on those longer journeys to maintain your speed with minimal effort, and also allows the California to be more efficient with a consistent speed.

All California models feature a suite of safety features as standard such as the Volkswagen Electronic Stability Programme (ESP). This system combines traction control and anti-lock braking functions with Electronic Brake Force Distribution and Electronic Differential Lock to help prevent swerving or skidding. LED daytime running lights ensure that you can always be seen on the road.
