Volkswagen Australia has announced local pricing and specifications for its new Caddy Beach campervan, which starts from $46,990 drive-away.
Launched as an entry-level campervan in the Australian Volkswagen range, the Caddy Beach sits underneath the California and Grand California - two camper vans that could come to Australia in the next few years.
Volkswagen Australia claims combined fuel consumption of 6.0L/100km using 95 RON premium unleaded.
Standard equipment includes low-speed AEB, six airbags, driver fatigue monitoring, adaptive cruise control with lane assist, 17-inch alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, front fog lights with cornering functionality, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, an auto-dimming rear view mirror, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a 6.5-inch media system with a reversing camera, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity.
Standard equipment also extends to camping features, with a 2.3m x 2.0m tailgate tent with a walk-through feature and ventilation window, a removable fold-up bed, storage beds for the rear windows, two folding camp chairs, a folding table, block-out curtains for the windscreen, tailgate and windows, as well as a rechargeable torch in the boot.
A vibrant range of colours is being offered for the Caddy Beach, with 'Sandstorm Yellow' the headline act, as well as the bright 'Viper Green', 'Reflex Silver', 'Fortana Red', 'Indium Grey' and 'Candy White' on offer.
The company is also offering a range of accessories for buyers looking to personalize their Caddy Breach further, including roof rails, a tow bar, weathershields and bicycle carriers.
According to Volkswagen Australia’s director of commercial vehicles, Ryan Davies, The Caddy Beach is the "most affordable and the cleverest recreational vehicle on sale today.”
"The Caddy Beach is a return to our roots – an inexpensive and fun campervan much like the original Kombi," Mr Davies said.
