Volkswagen California

New Volkswagen California

The California is a flexible camper van with an upmarket cabin that makes travelling, relaxing and sleeping as enjoyable and simple as possible. Crammed with features, the California ensures that life on the road is never dull.

The California Beach

The California Beach features body-coloured elements such as an aluminium pop-up roof, door handles, door mirrors (electrically heated and adjustable)​ and bumpers. A driver-side sliding door provides easy access, the vehicle’s tailgate can be remotely released and locked and the vehicle rides on 16-inch Clayton alloy wheels. Illumination includes range-adjustable headlights, daytime running lights and rear fog lamps.


Choose from a range of 2.0-litre 148bhp and 198bhp diesel engines. The latter are paired with a choice of six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, while the former are mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. CO2 emissions range from 162g/km to 168g/km, while fuel economy varies between 45.6mg and 44.8mpg. The Start/Stop system ensures that fuel consumption is minimised by automatically switching the engine off whenever the California Beach comes to a standstill.

Interior design

An adjustable leather steering wheel with height-and-reach adjustability and power-assisted steering is standard. Other features include a dipping breakaway rear-view mirror, electric front windows, semi-automatic air conditioning and black-out window blinds throughout. When the driving has finished, both front seats rotate 180 degrees. A folding table (plus two chairs) is included, which attaches to a side sliding door and features an awning rail. Stowage provision includes cup and bottle holders, door compartments, a lockable glovebox and storage nets. When it is time to go to sleep, a two-person bed transforms from the rear bench and a two-person upper bed (formed from the pop-up roof) are accessible.

Technology and safety

A six-speaker sound system includes a CD player and Bluetooth® connectivity, AUX and SD connectivity, as well as a five-inch colour touchscreen interface. Driving aids include a Traction Control System, Electronic Stability Programme, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System and Driver Alert System. Passive safety features comprise child locks, ISOFIX mountings, adjustable head restraints and seatbelt tensioners. An alarm, an immobiliser and remote central locking are also included.

The California Ocean

The California Ocean boasts a number of body-coloured elements, not least an electrically powered aluminium pop-up roof which features front and side windows. A high-gloss, chrome-trimmed grille adorns the front fascia, and the vehicle also features 17-inch Devonport alloy wheels. Illumination includes range-adjustable twin headlights, daytime running lights, front fog lamps (with cornering functionality), LED tail lights and a rear fog light.

A choice of 2.0-litre 148bhp and 198bhp diesel engines is available, paired with either six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Fuel economy ranges from 44.8mpg to 49.6mpg and CO2 emissions vary from 182g/km to 169g/km. Acceleration from 0-60mph in approximately 11 seconds and a top speed of 123mph is achievable with a 201bhp engine/six-speed manual gearbox pairing. The Start/Stop system keeps fuel consumption as low as possible by automatically turning the engine off whenever it isn’t required.

The driver benefits from a rake-and-reach-adjustable steering wheel, and both front seats offer lumbar support. Other features include power-assisted steering, electric front windows, three-zone automatic air conditioning and programmable heating.
