The new MAXIA VAN 680 DT

It is as versatile as life itself: sometimes relaxing, sometimes exciting, but always ready for change. The new MAXIA VAN 680 DT encapsulates the cosy “hygge” flair that Hobby fans will be familiar with and appreciate from the MAXIA VAN 680 ET.

Face-to-Face seating area

The multifunctional bench seat

The multifunctional rear is a seating and sleeping area in one and can be adapted to whatever you plan to do on the road in just a few simple steps. A mobile workspace in a face-to-face dinette in the morning, the cosy U-shaped seating area for enjoying dinner together in the evening, and either single beds or a double bed measuring 2∘m in length at night.

Flexible, swivelling pedestal table

The swivelling pedestal table is always wherever you need it, whether at the front in the cab or at the rear between the bench seats. When the table is not in use, it can be easily stowed away in the double floor, which comes as standard.

Large, flexible wardrobe

Everything on board: unparalleled comfort and lots of storage space come as standard at Hobby. The latest van from Hobby features a large cabinet; it has lighting inside and can be adapted to suit individual requirements with either a clothes rail or two shelves.

Cosy toppers for a better night’s sleep

A 3-layer upholstery/slatted frame system with an additional mattress topper makes the bed extra comfortable. Thanks to the adjustable seats, the relax position with inclined backrest makes it a comfortable spot to rest your legs. During the day, the toppers can be transformed into cosy cushions by placing them inside a cover.

Where should you store the bedding during the day? In the practical bag, of course. After transforming the bed into a bench seat once you’re up, the bedding is stowed away in the bag and in the cab in no time at all.

Practical outdoor set

The lightweight folding table and two folding chairs come with a practical carry bag from the start. They can be conveniently stowed in the storage space over the cab and underneath the left bench seat in the rear. The outdoor set is assembled in an instant so you can enjoy outdoor living, from shared meals and drinks to simply taking in the beautiful view.

Storage bags for bedding

Thanks to its optimal use of space, everything has been taken into consideration in the MAXIA VAN 680 DT. During the day, bedding disappears in the practical bags made of robust upholstery fabric. One simple move is all it takes to stow the bags in the large wardrobe or underneath the bench seat, keeping everything close at hand and well organised.

Home is where the heart is – with a view of the open road

Light walnut wood, graphite grey wall units, white overhead cabinets and the flair of the open-plan de-sign; the elegant interior of the MAXIA VAN is a dream come true for anyone who’s fallen in love with the simple Scandinavian design style. The grey, V-Flex, felt-effect lining for the roof and side walls as well as the modern cabinet doors also contribute to this feeling of cosiness. What’s more, thanks to the super-high roof, the van also boasts a comfortable interior headroom of 2 m.

Cosy sleeping space at the rear

Thanks to the ambient lighting, an efficient TRUMA heating system and highly effective Cello-foam insulation made of up to 60% recycled fibres, it’s still cosy at night and in winter. This is true of all three berths, because in addition to the two single beds measuring an incredible 2 m in length, there’s another overnight solution for young campers in the cab of the MAXIA VAN.

Everything on board for connoisseurs

The well-designed kitchen units, such as the 90-litre compressor refrigerator, the hob/sink combination with a 2-burner hob and electric ignition, are also sure to impress. The kitchen also includes a fold-out worktop extension and kitchen drawers with push lock and soft-close mechanisms.

Your living room on the go

With two metres of interior headroom, the super-high roof MAXIA VAN provides a welcoming spaciousness that is enhanced by the breathable and sound-absorbent lining of the roof and side walls.

Compact washroom with integrated shower

The compact washroom makes particularly effective use of the available space. The washbasin over the toilet can be folded back to create plenty of room. The vent window provides natural light and optimal ventilation for the washroom. The shower can be separated from the rest of the room by a shower screen with blinds and the extendable shower head can also be used as an outside shower through the window.

“Hygge” meets high-tech: The MAXIA VAN’s multimedia pack-age

“Composition Colour”, Volkswagen’s very own radio system with TFT display, four speakers, Bluetooth and two USB-C ports, is just as much a part of the extensive multimedia package as Car-Net App-Connect and the interface for connecting with smartphones.

Perfect for streaming and working on the move

CAMPERNET provides you with a fast Internet connection, even when on the road. The perfect and modern all-in-one system consisting of a router and a powerful, external roof aerial means that you can stream, surf or even do a bit of work, even when travelling to places with poor network coverage. What’s more, the WLAN network generated by the system guarantees a reliable and secure connection with all of the end devices in and around your vehicle – just like at home.


  • Private, secure and reliably strong WLAN network in and around your camper van
  • Easy to set up using an intuitive web application
  • All-in-one kit consisting of a router, WLAN booster and powerful roof aerial
  • Better reception performance than a mobile phone hotspot or mobile routers
  • 2 SIM card slots for different contracts (e.g. secondary SIM card from your network operator or a pre-paid SIM card for low rates abroad)
  • 3 LAN connections available (e.g. for a smart TV, computer/laptop, etc.)
