Volkswagen launches the California in the UK
|   Sunday, November 11, 2012
When talking about a California on wheels, the first name that comes to the mind is the Ferrari California. However, Volkswagen has launched the vehicle’s namesake and the two cars are as different as sand and sugar. However, the Volkswagen California maybe an overall better choice when compared to the Ferrari and this is being said keeping the times in mind. We explain the reasons in details.

The Volkswagen California is a camper vehicle with seating arrangement of up to seven people and sleeping arrangements for four.
The vehicle weighs more than 2.5 tons and the vehicle can be called the next generation Volkswagen Camper Van. However, the California is different from the Camper Van in terms of performance and handling and it features the entire prowess required in a commercial vehicle.

The vehicle is perfect for people who like to work 24 x 7 and do not find enough time to catch up with sleep. You could work, sleep and do other household chores from inside the vehicle and that too quite effortlessly. Volkswagen has introduced a more affordable Beach in the UK this year along with the California and that too below 35,000 Pounds.
The California also features the most up to date Blue Efficiency Technology while producing 113 BHP while emitting a respectable 184 g/km of Co2.

The 2.0 liter TDI engine used on the California returns a respectable 40 MPG when cruising at 70 MPH and this is quite respectable for a camper van. The Volkswagen Beach is available as a four and six seated model and both are priced closely to avoid confusion and create competition within them. The vehicle is quite refined for its class and this is great news for people looking forward to buying either the Beach or the California.

The vehicles take about 14 seconds to reach 60 MPH from 0 and this is quite respectable considering the size and weight of the vehicles. The California is the perfect vehicle if you like to go on camping trips and it is quite easy and flexible to use. The level of equipments used on the vehicle is quite high and as a result the vehicle does not feel cheap. Although power production is not of the hyper sport category, it will not make a camper fall asleep.

The California is available in a variety of shades and hues and this has been directly lifted off the Volkswagen Camper Van.
With the launch of the California, Volkswagen has set up a new dimension for the future camper designs. However, the California could do with an easier and more efficient braking system and the parking brakes could have been improved. The vehicle has the chances of slipping away and the complicated method of declutching and braking does not help either. Overall, it is good price for money and considering the current economic crisis plaguing the world, purchasing the Volkswagen California maybe a better idea than the Ferrari California. Therefore, going for the Volkswagen California is a more viable option.
