About The Vans
Load up. Chill out. Take off. In the California, anything is possible. Whether the beach or the countryside is your thing, the California offers you the opportunity to escape, follow your dreams and discover what freedom really means. The latest California models are now quieter, smarter and with even greater flexibility, offering endless possibilities and effortless escaping in total luxury and style.
So what are you waiting for? The adventure starts here.
Escaping is easy in the California
Anyone who likes to go in search of wide open spaces will feel happy in the California. It’s high tech, innovative interior gives you maximum flexibility, ensuring escaping is easy, whether you want to follow the surf or the sun, or take to the open road and sleep where you like. A rail system ensures the bench moves easily and smoothly to the rear of the vehicle, and quickly converts into a bed measuring 114 x 200cm, while the electrically powered roof rises at the touch of a button to reveal the spacious upper berth and second double bed. With mosquito nets to give you all the fresh air you need, and a blind to separate the upper berth from the lower cabin area, you can be sure of a great night’s sleep in the California.
Home from Home
The California is a real home from home, with everything you need for cooking ready to hand – including a two-burner hob, sink with a drawer and cutlery tray beneath, and handy fridge. There’s also plenty of useful storage space providing lots of room for your pots, pans, dishes and plates. In addition, the kitchen unit also comes with a movable and folding worktop, fitted as standard, which is designed for use as a table.
Swivelling front seats and an adjustable free-standing table (conveniently stored in the sliding door) ensure that mealtimes in the California are always a sociable affair. And during those warm, summer evenings, two standard folding seats, cleverly stored in the tailgate, enable you to sit outside and watch the sun go down at your leisure.
As you’d expect, the interior of the California meets the highest expectations, with innovative ideas and high quality materials throughout. The fresh water and waste tanks are protected against frost and each has a capacity of 30 litres. There’s also an ac inverter, with a 230v socket, conveniently located behind the ‘B’ pillar trim, allowing you to use electrical equipment up to a maximum of 150W, without having to connect to the external 230v mains hook-up.
You couldn’t ask for greater comfort or safety
The California offers you complete motoring comfort. Driver and front passenger swiveling seats feature lumbar support and armrests, and are also heated, while such features as air conditioning, front electric windows, heated exterior mirrors, remote central locking and a RCD 310 Radio/CD player with eight speakers ensure total comfort and convenience.
You’ll also enjoy the superior performance of Volkswagen’s TDI diesel engines, available in 140ps and 180ps variants with either a 6-speed manual or 7-speed automatic DSG gearbox. This exceptional vehicle is sure-footed too, with high body rigidity, large anti-roll bars, McPherson suspension struts and independent rear suspension combining to ensure a dynamic driving experience. Naturally, safety is paramount, which is why an Anti-lock braking system, Electronic Differential Lock, Traction Control System, Engine Braking Control and Electronic Stabilisation Programme, not to mention driver, passenger, side and front curtain airbags, all provide you and your passengers with the highest levels of protection.
