Looks good but not sure what it is going to cost here in the States!

Post collision braking, wtf? I would think that pre collision braking is more useful?Dodgy

I read that the California was never sold in America.
although
The enthusiasts in USA are hoping that the new T6 Cali will make it to the States.


In RSA,
VWSA has sold a few California's SE--the upmarket version--as well as the different/alternate specd California Beach in the past.

It just got much too expensive to bring the Cali in now--over R1 M,
so they rather import and sell the Beach.

Probably not more than +/-20? vehicles, all told, in RSA.

The new T6 variants in Europe actually offers a choice of 3 specifications,
and is a nice mix and match combination of the Cali and Beach.

I only know all this because I had my heart set on a used Cali 4Motion recently, so had to do lots of research fast.

The "Chicken Tax"! I see the SA Poultry association also caved to the US poultry interests. Damn Bullies!
