Lighting the way

Lighting the way

The California Beach has LED headlamps with separate LED daytime running lights, fog lights and an LED taillight assembly, so you can always see and be seen. This isn’t just a beautiful camper van, it’s one of the safest cars in its class, equipped with preventative features like ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), PDC (Park Distance Control) with optional rear-view camera and MCB (Automatic Post-collision Braking System). The Traction Control System aids with smooth starts and acceleration by reducing wheelspin. The system incorporates the Electronic Differential Lock (EDL) and makes up part of the Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESP). Driver and passenger front, side and curtain airbags are fitted as standard and activate immediately in the event of head-on or side impacts, offering occupants improved protection. The driver fatigue detection system, Rest Assist, registers deviation from normal steering patterns and uses visual and acoustic warnings to recommend that the driver takes a break.

Rest and Relax

Pop-up tent with roof bed

After a long drive, rest and relaxation is a fitting reward for any driver, and what better way to enjoy the evening breeze than sleeping in the manually operated pop-up roof bed with two side windows. What’s more, you will always wake up to the best views in the house. For winter adventures, the California Beach makes for a cosy retreat with its programmable air parking heater.

Standard Composition Media Radio System

Technology and Innovation

Add your favourite soundtrack to your journeys and stay entertained with the New California Beach’s standard Composition Media Radio System or the optional Discover Media Navigation System that offers you control over a range of features. You have the flexibility to play your CDs as well as MP3, WMA, AAC audio files through the USB, SD and AUX IN, or listen to the radio. And with its standard PDC (Park Distance Control) with additional rear-view camera as optional , you can enter and exit tight spaces with ease. Bluetooth functionality lets you make or receive hands-free phone calls and you can also connect, charge and control your iPod, cellphone and other devices while you’re on the move.

Stability at all times

Explore further with 4MOTION® all-wheel drive

The California Beach is the only vehicle in its class that has the ability to explore roads less travelled thanks to the standard 4MOTION® 4-wheel drive system. This technology ensures that torque is distributed as required while the Electronic Differential Lock (EDL) maintains even traction. The 4MOTION® system offers a high standard of active safety, sure-footed traction over virtually all surfaces, as well as optimum straight-line stability at all times, even in crosswinds. It’s no surprise that this camper van will get you to the best spot in the middle of nowhere.
