The Volkswagen California Beach

Life’s a Beach. Drive, eat and sleep in comfort

With a body-coloured pop-up aluminium roof, a two-seat rear folding bench which converts into a two-person lower bed plus loads of room up front and space to spare for luggage in the back, the flexible California Beach is holiday-ready.

Luxury & convenience in the ‘upper and lower deck’

The pop-up roof accommodates an upper bed for two people – converting from the pop-up roof with a stowage compartment measuring 2,000mm (length) and 1,200mm (width). It includes canvas sides in Alpine Grey, two zip-opening windows, fly screens, slatted bed frame, 55mm foam mattress and child safety net.

Below, there’s everything you need for a great camper van holiday. A lower bed with sleeping mat and storage compartment, fabric black-out blinds for a great night’s sleep, a folding table which attaches effortlessly to the sliding door, two folding chairs - stored neatly in the tailgate, and a second 12v battery.

Clever technology inside and out

A black awning rail (with tent adapter) allows you to make the most of the outdoors whilst inside the California Beach gives you all the technology you need. A composition colour DAB+ radio system with 5" touch-screen gives you access to Bluetooth® hands-free set, MP3 compatible CD drive and no less than six speakers. There’s also the ever-valuable AUX-IN socket, a USB interface and SD card slot.

The  California’s multi-function display ‘Plus’ gives you a dimmable dashboard illumination and digital clock. To keep you warm (or cool) enough there’s an auxiliary heater and climatic semi-automatic air conditioning with manual rear heater control and a fresh air intake system with activated charcoal canister.

Making the most of the space

The California Beach packs in lots of super spec for added that added comfort that’s essential on those nights away. As well as swivelling driver and passenger seats with lumbar support and armrests, there’s fold-away grab handles on the roof frame, a carpet floor covering, ‘A’ pillar grab handles, leather steering wheel, gearknob and gaiter plus a dashboard cup holder and two door stowage compartments with holder able to keep 1.5 litre drinks bottles safe. 

Designed for the driver as well as the camper

Wherever you’re travelling, the California Beach has an engine to perform. Choose from the 102ps or 150ps variants of the 2.0 TDI, with the latter available in a 7-speed, dual-clutch, direct-shift gearbox to give you real power and performance.

Style, safety and practicality

The California marries practicality with safety and style throughout. The sliding floor rail system makes set-up simple and with plastic entrance step and tailgate sill protection and step illumination with California logo for cab doors and side sliding door, the California is accessible in the dark as it is in daytime. The two-seat rear bench also accommodates ISOFIX child seat mountings and a storage box to its left, plus there’s a 230v supply for re-charging vehicle batteries.

As always from Volkswagen safety is a top priority. The Ocean is designed to drive like a car, with agile handling, real stability and easy manoeuvrability. Standard safety specification includes ABS, electronic brakeforce distribution, electronic stabilisation programme, traction control plus passenger and driver side and front curtain airbags.
