New Volkswagen California Beach brings added versatility to the range


Volkswagen has added a new Beach variant to its popular range of California camper vans.

Due to go on sale later this month with first customer deliveries expected in March next year, the Beach specification will be made up of two trims - Camper and Tour. 

Both models boast a manual pop-up roof, alongside foldable camping chairs and matching tables. A DAB radio, smartphone integration apps and 17-inch wheels build on a comprehensive list of standard equipment, while either model is driven by a 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine linked to a seven-speed DSG gearbox. 

When it comes to specifications, Tour seats five as standard, those this can be optionally upgraded to six or seven. Volkswagen claims that, as a result of this configuration, it’s the only camper on sale today which is capable of seating this many people. 

The Tour also benefits from sliding doors on both the passenger and driver’s side, while prices start from £52,062. 

The Camper specification, meanwhile, has four seats as standard though this can be increased to five with an optional extra chair. It features a full pull-out kitchen, which includes a single gas hob. A pull-out awning is also included to help keep the elements at bay when sitting outside. Prices for the California Beach Camper start from £52,302.
