Bacon butties, home-cooked steak or a kiwi classic fish and chips: In the California 6.1 your perfect kiwi staples are at your fingertips. The kitchen is equipped with a gas hob with two rings, a stable cover that can be used as a worktop, and a removable washing-up bowl.
There's not always a hotel at those hidden spots around New Zealand. Unless you have your own with you: with its spacious loft bed, the California 6.1 offers you enough space and comfort to dream about your best holiday moments and fall asleep with the calming rushing of waves in your ears.
The California 6.1 is your home on the road. Its spacious interior provides plenty of room to spread yourself out. Cook, sleep, relax – just like at home. Only with the whole world at your door.
The California 6.1 is perfect for a road trip to the coast. And for shopping in the urban jungle. Thanks to its compact dimensions and passenger car-like handling, it’s truly the right companion and entertainer: with the digital cockpit, you can use the touch display of the Infotainment systems and the leather-covered multifunction steering wheel to call up the perfect holiday soundtrack. And the “Discover Pro” navigation systems always guides you to your next dream destination.
Make the most of the Discover Media's large touchscreen and connectivity to stay informed on the road. The 2D/2.5D navigation comes with maps displaying a range of useful information such as points of interest and speed limits. To help you avoid congestion, this system even offers you three routes – fast, short and eco-friendly – using live traffic updates.
As well as offering grip and comfort for hours at the wheel, the multi-function leather steering wheel gives you fingertip control of functions including the radio and cruise control.
Be prepared for almost anything with the safety systems in the California. The driving systems can safely intervene, helping to reduce the risk of accidents on the road.
Newly launched and standard across the T6.1 range, Driver Steering Recommendation gives the driver suggested inputs to help stabilise the vehicle. The system also intervenes using gentle adjustments if it recognises oversteer when cornering.
As part of the Electronic Stabilisation System (ESP), this applies the brakes if the vehicle encounters a strong crosswind. Standard across the range, this feature is activated automatically when travelling above 80km/h.
Available as standard, Lane Assist countersteers the vehicle if the driver unintentionally drifts from a lane. The system also emits audible and visual warnings via the multi-function display to alert the driver of danger.
This standard feature aids positioning into parking spaces. When reverse gear is engaged, the vehicle automatically assumes control of the steering. All the driver has to do is operate the clutch, accelerator and brake.
You decide what lies ahead. The exterior mirrors show you what’s going on behind you: with an electrical adjustment function, they can adapt to your visibility needs. They can also be heated depending on the weather conditions and folded in easily for added protection.
A constant close eye on what’s ahead: even if you travel at night, the California is always the ideal companion. Especially if it’s fitted with LED headlights: they feature a long light beam and high lighting volume. For the best possible visibility and a safe arrival.
Is there any nicer way to start the morning than watching the sun rise right outside your window? In the California you can experience just that: the entire front roof window can simply be folded down and inwards so that you can be as close to nature as possible.
The California provides you with a shady spot in even the sunniest of locations: thanks to its high-quality awning. The stable aluminium frame and its robust fabric create a shaded area directly in front of the sliding door. The awning’s housing – which is permanently fixed to the vehicle – is available in black or silver. The crank can be stowed in the tailgate to save space.
A quick detour into the mountains or a hilly road to the coast: wherever your thirst for adventure takes you – you are prepared for almost anything with the 4MOTION all-wheel drive. Using an electronically controlled multi-plate clutch on the rear axle, the all-wheel drive automatically adapts the power transmission to the current conditions.
