The Caddy California is the latest and most compact member of the California camper family. Sitting beneath the Grand California and the bestselling California, it completes the range and ensures there’s a version of the iconic camper van to suit every budget and adventure.
Based on the fifth-generation Caddy van, the Caddy California is a unique size in the camper-van market and offers adjustable living, sleeping and storage space.
The Caddy California features a retractable mini-kitchen that incorporates a single-burner cooker with integrated gas bottle. Storage compartments for cutlery, chairs and a table feature alongside interior blinds for the rear windows and LED reading lights.
There’s seating for up to five people and a bed can be folded down from the parcel shelf to open above the rear seats. These seats can be removed entirely to maximise internal space.
The Caddy California is equipped with an 8.25-inch colour touchscreen Composition Media system as standard with Bluetooth and DAB radio. Air conditioning, powered door mirrors and an alarm also feature. Safety systems include Driver Alert, Lane Assist, Cruise Control and Front Assist.
The Caddy California is available with a 114 PS 1.5-litre TSI engine and a manual gearbox as standard. A 122 PS 2.0-litre TDI with a seven-speed DSG automatic gearbox can also be specified. A larger Maxi version of the Caddy California is also on sale with the same powertrain options.
Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is offering a California Plus pack that bundles a front centre armrest with two cupholders, a 230V inverter and three-pin UK domestic plug, tinted rear glass, two USB points, power latching doors and LED rear combination lights to add extra touches of luxury.
A standalone tail-tent that provides additional living and sleeping space is available as an accessory.
