Volkswagen California Ocean

Your home on the road, the California Ocean is the fun way for families and friends to travel, rest, eat and sleep. Loaded with a wide range of features, this premium camper van enables everyone on board to travel in comfort and style.

Exterior design

The California Ocean boasts a number of body-coloured elements, not least an electrically powered aluminium pop-up roof which features front and side windows. A high-gloss, chrome-trimmed grille adorns the front fascia, and the vehicle also features 17-inch Devonport alloy wheels. Illumination includes range-adjustable twin headlights, daytime running lights, front fog lamps (with cornering functionality), LED tail lights and a rear fog light.

Interior design

The driver benefits from a rake-and-reach-adjustable steering wheel, and both front seats offer lumbar support. Other features include power-assisted steering, electric front windows, three-zone automatic air conditioning and programmable heating. Stowage provision includes bottle and cup holders, door compartments and under-seat storage. Black-out fabric window blinds feature in the cab and living area. A folding table comes with two chairs and can be attached to the vehicle’s side sliding door. A dark wood-effect kitchen unit includes a gas stove, a flexible worktop, a stainless steel sink and a 42-litre cooling/warming box. Fresh water is provided by a 30-litre storage tank. When it’s time to sleep, the rear bench converts into a two-person bed and the pop-up roof provides a two-person upper bed.


A choice of 2.0-litre 148bhp and 198bhp diesel engines is available, paired with either six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Fuel economy ranges from 44.8mpg to 49.6mpg and CO2 emissions vary from 182g/km to 169g/km. Acceleration from 0-60mph in approximately 11 seconds and a top speed of 123mph is achievable with a 201bhp engine/six-speed manual gearbox pairing. The Start/Stop system keeps fuel consumption as low as possible by automatically turning the engine off whenever it isn’t required.

Technology and safety

A five-inch colour touchscreen, an eight-speaker sound system with CD player and radio, and Bluetooth®, AUX and SD connectivity are standard. Driver aids include Electronic Stability Programme, Anti-Lock Braking System, Traction Control, Hill Hold Assist, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System and Driver Alert System. Passive safety features comprise height-adjustable head restraints, ISOFIX anchors and tethers, seatbelt reminders and child-proof door locks.
