Volkswagen Grand California
The Grand California is built for bigger adventures. It’s available as a 600 or longer 680 model, with both models sleeping two and seating four as standard. Which is best for you depends on how much living space you want - the 600 model is also available with a loft bed so it can sleep a maximum of four people. Whichever you choose, there’s storage spaces aplenty and thoughtful cabin features like a foldout table, openable skylight and a kitchen with a sink and two stoves. The two rear passenger seats have their own table and the front seats can swivel around to create a living space everyone can relax in. An 8” Discover Media Navigation system, front and rear parking sensors and crosswind assist are standard features.
The Grand California can be as stylish or understated as you want it to be. Choose from a range of solid body colours and retro two-tone paint schemes. All models sit on 17” alloys and feature rear privacy glass across the window row.
The 2.0 TDI engine is powerful, producing 177bhp and 410Nm of torque. It’s paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission for smooth driving. You also get crosswind assist, front and rear parking sensors and front assist to make your journeys safer.
There’s a separate wet room with a toilet, sink, shelving and storage, as well as a fitted kitchen with two stoves, a sink and in-built storage. There’s also a 70 L fridge with a freezer compartment which you can access from the inside or outside.
