Inspired by the past, built for today, the Volkswagen California introduces new standards of comfort, performance and safety, thanks to its modern purpose-built design and superb engineering. But the philosophy remains the same. The latest evolution of Volkswagen’s iconic camper van still symbolizes the fun, freedom and adventure that was such an appealing quality of the much-loved original. The ability to go where you please, when you please is as relevant today as it was in the 1950s – maybe even more so. Yes, there are those who love the nostalgia, but the appeal of the California lies across a generation.

Whether it’s a family camping holiday, a festival weekend, or a voyage of discovery road trip, the Volkswagen camper van gives you the freedom of the open road and provides a place to relax, eat and sleep.
