The Volkswagen California Ocean

Upgrade to the Ocean and your cooking on gas. 

The California Ocean is your home from home. It’s equipped with literally everything – including the kitchen sink. 

The fantastic camping specification includes a 42 litre Cool/warm box with removable basket, an electric unit to pump from the 30 litre fresh water storage tank with lockable gas stove with two burners and pressure test point. The Kitchen unit features textured dark wood-effect trim which houses a stainless steel sink and storage cupboard with two sliding doors, cutlery drawer plus the gas stove. Even the taps are height adjustable.

The Ocean also has a central electronic control system which helps you operates and/or keep an eye on just about everything including fridge temperature settings battery capacity and charge level, external temperature, fresh and waste water levels, waking alarm, parking heater settings and activation of the electric pop-up roof.

A tough exterior with all the finishing touches

With 17" Devonport alloy wheels and centre caps, electrically heated, adjustable and folding door mirrors and Halogen twin headlights with range adjustment and cornering lights the California Ocean really looks the part. As well as being tough on the road, it’s practical, finishing touches make a difference, like the double-glazed fixed side windows and power latching to the side door and tailgate

Interior luxury you deserve

The California Ocean offers that little bit more luxury you deserve such as climatronic three-zone automatic air conditioning, luxury cut pile floor mats and sliding side windows with fly screens. Two maintenance free auxiliary batteries with cut-off relay for power the living area. 

For the driver and passenger there’s a premium dashboard with wide centre console and bottle compartment with heated driver and front passenger seats, plus a programmable parking heater with radio remote control makes it easy to keep the temperature just right.

Practical and stylish from inside to out

The Ocean is full of practical space saving ideas that look good and do the job. From a wardrobe with sliding shutter access and textured, dark wood-effect trim to a flexible worktop with drop-down leg living area has a real feel of quality. The interior is beautifully illuminated by the ‘Comfort’ light concept above side sliding door and kitchen unit and there’s flexible multi-directional stem halogen spotlight which targets light into the living area or pop-up roof.

Designed for the driver as well as the camper

Wherever you’re going, the California Ocean has real power and performance. Choose from the 150ps 2.0 TDI or 204PS 2.0BiTDI, both available in 6-speed manual or 7-speed, dual-clutch, direct-shift gearbox.

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.
