Leasing a Volkswagen California Estate
The VW California Camper was launched in August 2003. Based on the VW Caravelle and VW Transporter, it combined practicality and style in a way that breathed new life into the Camper van range. Later versions included a variety of new specs and features to optimise the camping experience. For example, the California Ocean impressed campers with its pop-up roof space that transforms into a sleeping area for up to four people.
The VW California uses a 2.0-litre diesel engine and a semi-automatic 7-speed DSG gearbox system with front-wheel drive. More recent models have 4Motion, VW’s four-wheel drive system as an optional extra. The Volkswagen California diesel estate engine can do 631 miles per tank at 33mpg and produces 221 g/km of CO2. Choose a model in the Bluemotion range and you will enjoy better fuel economy.
After you've decided on a Volkswagen California lease deal, it's time to pick your trim. The stand-out Beach trim package includes cruise control and climate control, with remote locking and steering wheel rake adjustment as optional extras. Go for the Berghaus trim if you want heated seats and fold-up rear seats for added space. The SE trim has side airbags for all-round protection, along with full-size spare wheel and front fog lights.
The California estate has an array of safety technology. Traffic sign recognition will make sure you stay within speed limits, while crosswind assist automatically applies the brakes during strong winds. The VW California also comes with an intelligent 'inclinometer' display that makes sure you're on level ground before setting up camp.
All our VW vehicle leasing deals include Volkswagen's manufacturer’s warranty. It's got you covered for any repairs or damages during the first three years. The Volkswagen California is a robust and reliable vehicle, but servicing it every 12 months or 12,000 miles will minimise the risk of breakdowns.
We've also got special offers on the Peugeot 5008 lease deals. It’s a 7-seater MPV that drives like a high-performance SUV, making it an excellent choice for weekend adventures with the whole family. Or how about Citroen Space Tourer Estate lease deals? It's big, spacious and has an innovative hands-free opening system with child protection features. In other words, it's every parent's dream family vehicle. There’s also a Mercedes V-Class Marco Polo lease deal to consider.

Frequently Asked Questions
Lease customers never own the car. Instead, they hire it through manageable monthly payments - plus an initial payment - and return the vehicle after the contract ends, saving huge amounts of money on depreciation costs. Most new cars depreciate by 40% within three years. A personal lease is a flexible and affordable way to get a brand new car without the large upfront costs.
Usage is a big factor in how much you pay for a lease, for example for the TDi Ocean estate. Business customers can enjoy a lease deal exc VAT, while a personal lease deal will be inc VAT. Be aware of excess mileage charges and the make, model, and contract length will also impact your monthly payments. Road tax is included.
