VW Commercial Vehicles is getting ready for summer with the launch of a new Edition version of its iconic California camper. The ‘Edition’ is available on both Beach and Ocean models, which are priced from £52,985 ($72,953) and £65,879 ($90,707) respectively in the UK.
Only 80 examples will be reaching UK shores at the end of May, boasting new designs and equipment packages, including a gloss black roof and door mirrors, unique Edition decals, plus additional kit for both the Beach as well as the Ocean version.
The new Edition spec is available on California Beach models with the 150 PS 2.0-liter TDI engine, and on the California Ocean with the more punchy 204 PS 2.0-liter TDI unit. Both feature the German automaker’s seven-speed DSG transmission as standard.
No reason not to look good while camping under the stars
On the outside, both vans come with 17-inch Cascavel alloys with black inlays, black gloss contrast roof and door mirrors, and LED headlights as standard. Then there’s the Discover Media navigation system with App-Connect and front fog lights with cornering function, which should help owners find their perfect pitch on the campsite.
Meanwhile, the Design Package adds the previously mentioned unique Edition decals, rear privacy glass and front side windows made from heat-insulating glass, while the Ocean model is the only one that gets the premium multi-function color display.
As for their interiors, the Beach Edition features a leather-trimmed multi-function steering wheel, comfort dashboard and Climatronic 3-zone climate control with allergen filter and auxiliary heater, whereas the higher-spec Ocean boasts white wood kitchen cupboards, additional comfort lighting in the passenger compartment, an outdoor shower connection and a bed extension with a comfort sleeping mat.
