About the Volkswagen California

The Volkswagen California is the ideal travel and leisure camper van to make you feel right at home anywhere, combining efficient engines, a high-quality interior, modern infotainment and driver assistance systems as well as innovative mobile online services.

The California 6.1 is the latest generation of the iconic camper van that has been the symbol of independence and freedom for adventurous families for 60 years and counting.

The California 6.1 is built to remarkably high standards throughout and features a raft of new technology plus a distinguished new front end that delivers a more dynamic presence on the road.


The California 6.1 features a fully fitted kitchen complete with cool box, sink, and stove kitchen unit, allowing you to prepare a tasty meal on the go. Rear cupboards and a row of kitchen units provide plenty of storage space, too.

With the elevated roof, the California 6.1 offers comfort in a small space. The expanding roof gives you extra space to move around in the passenger compartment, and as night falls, you can transform the camper van into your own comfortable bedroom to sleep four.


An all-new camper control unit with touchscreen in the roof console gives owners the ability to operate all camper functions, such as the on-board cool box and auxiliary heating, via the digital hub.

In addition, the Volkswagen Digital Cockpit is available, offering a full colour digital 10.25”-gauge cluster that can be customised to display the most relevant information.

Connectivity is further enhanced with an integrated eSIM delivering access to the suite of We Connect Plus mobile online services. While a range of an extended range of driver safety systems are introduced, including Lane Assist, Park Assist, and a side protection function.


The California 6.1 is available with a seven-speed DSG transmission and a 2.0 TDI engine as standard. This powertrain is available with 150 PS and 199 PS variants, while 4MOTION all-wheel-drive can be specified on the more powerful 199 PS engine.


The California 6.1 is available in two trim levels: Ocean and Beach

As standard, the Ocean model is equipped with a roll-out awning, adaptive cruise control including City Emergency Braking, a Lights & Vision pack, an auxiliary heater with programmable functionality and radio remote control, and an electric pop-up roof.

The Ocean specification also includes LED headlights, a Discover Media navigation system, including streaming and internet, and the innovative Digital Cockpit and Driver Alert System. Front and rear parking sensors with park assist are included too. 

The Beach model makes the California more accessible for larger families and those who need a more flexible MPV to accommodate their hobbies or occasional rest stops. Find out more about the two variants of the California Beach, called Tour and Camper, here.

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has also reintroduced the Beach model to the California 6.1 range, making the camper van line-up more accessible for larger families and to those who need a more flexible MPV to accommodate their hobbies or occasional rest stops.
