We’re big fans of everything Volkswagen here at Denby. So of course the prospect of new campervans heading our way is an exciting one. Are you curious about the new VW Grand California? Of course you are! In this handy mini-guide, we’re giving you full access to the specs, layout and price of Volkswagen’s newest kid on the block.
What to Expect From The New Campervans
As you may already know, the design of the Grand California motorhome is based on the Volkswagen Crafter. And it’s USP is definitely space! The basic 600 model measures in at a not-so-modest six metres. And within that you’ll find a fully kitted out bathroom with shower, toilet and space-saving sink. As well as a living room and enough room for beds to sleep 2 adults and 2 children.
As you might imagine, there is some size difference between the standard 600 model and the Grand California 680. When it comes to your sleeping arrangements the 600 is a winner for families living the van life. All thanks to the rooftop sleeping space. The perfect area for bedtimes stories and sneaking midnight snacks, a sliding mechanism in the roof transforms the interior space into a cosy bedroom complete with ladder, built-in lights and the (optional) skylight.
Get To Grips With The Mod Cons
Alongside the extra space and clever details, the Grand California also comes with a range of mod cons. And just a quick look at them will make you wonder how you ever lived without them! The standard 600 model features motion-sensing lights, USB plugs (for all-important phone and camera charges), gas hob, 70 litre fridge and a warming air and water-based heater powered by gas or electricity.
There’s also lots of clever storage spaces to be discovered, including integrated shelving and storage in the bathroom and outer built in storage that’s perfect for stowing away your camping chairs and other equipment.
Under The Hood
If you’re a sucker for the specs, we’ve got those too! Clever touches such as Front Assist, front and rear parking sensors, Crosswind Assist, and Driver Alert will make your travels to and from any adventure a breeze. And under the hood you’l find a powerful 177 PS diesel engine with front-wheel drive and an 8-speed automatic gearbox!
How Much Is The VW Grand California?
And now for the question on everyone’s lips. How much will the VW Grand California set you back?
The 600 model will cost you a cool £68,899 inc. VAT (without on-the-road charges and optional extras). And the 680 model rises to £78,145 with the inclusion of VW’s 4Motion 4 wheel drive system.
You can check out the Grand California in the flesh between October 15th – October 20th at the Motorhome and Caravan Show at the Birmingham NEC.
