Volkswagen California Surf, 2023, front

VOLKSWAGEN has added a new trim level - California Surf - to the Transporter 6.1 model range, with prices starting from £68,234.

It joins the existing California range - consisting of Beach Tour, Beach Camper and Ocean - and the new California 6.1 Surf sits between the Beach Tour and Ocean.

It is equipped with essentials for camping and features a gas hob and two burners, a stainless steel sink with a removable washing-up bowl, and heated front seats.

The California Surf is capable of sleeping a family of four with a loft bed and convertible back-seat bench that folds out into a bed for two.

Powered by a 2.0 TDI 150ps seven-speed engine with direct-shift gearbox and sitting on 16-inch alloy wheels, the California Surf is fitted with the latest technology and connectivity systems including three-zone climatronic climate control and an eight-inch ‘Ready to Discover' infotainment system, with eight loudspeakers, Bluetooth hands free and wireless App-Connect.

Driver and safety assistance systems, including adaptive cruise control, park assist and crosswind assist, are part of the standard offering across the California line-up.

Trailer Assist technology as well as front and rear parking sensors are fitted on the new model to notify the driver of nearby objects, even when the vehicle is towing a trailer.
