The Citroën C4 Cactus represents a winning combination of innovative thinking, a bold exterior and excellent value for money. No wonder this family-friendly, mini SUV has proven so likeable.
The exterior design is futuristic, bringing a brand-new innovation to the car market in the form of AirBumps. They’re similar to ‘bubble wrap’ in a sense that they fend off minor bumps and scrapes to the bodywork, so you can keep your car in excellent condition. A choice of three shades are available to match your chosen colour scheme.
Meanwhile, ultra-slim daytime running lights sit on the rounded nose and they stand in direct contrast to the chunky wheel arches and bold roof rails. Choose the upgraded Flair trim to gain the biggest alloy wheels available in the line-up.
Inside practicality reigns supreme. The cabin is a simplified space, so you can focus fully on driving. Durable materials line the comfortable seats, while leather grab handles add a premium touch. These kinds of thoughtful touches make everyday driving a pleasure. You can also specify a panoramic sunroof to make the space feel even more light and airy.
Meanwhile, the large boot easily accommodates the most awkward of loads. It’s easily expandable too, just fold the rear seats down to increase capacity.
The C4 Cactus is designed to ease motoring, and that’s why you’ll find a lightweight, efficient engine under the bonnet. A weight-saving build means nimble handling as you tackle corners.
Take your pick from four capable engines: a PureTech 1.2-litre with 82 or 110bhp; or a 1.6-litre Blue HDi diesel. Every one of the line-up is designed to keep CO2 emissions to a minimum, while delivery excellent economy and a laid-back drive. Emissions remain as low as 89g/km in the diesel if you select the super-smooth ETG semi-automatic gearbox. All models manage over 60mpg, meaning fewer stops at the pumps for you.
When it comes to safety, the C4 Cactus has you covered. You get six airbags that provide protection throughout the cabin, plus electronic stability control that will prepare you to deal with changing road conditions. As for the tyre pressure monitoring system, it will alert you if you need to take action and ensures you continue to perform at your best and most efficient. Cruise control also comes as standard to make light of motorway driving.
On board, you’ll find convenient features like electronic front windows and door mirrors, while USB sockets allow you to keep your phone charged on the go. Upgrade to Feel to add air conditioning and Bluetooth connectivity. Range-topping Flair models also boast satellite navigation, climate control and automatic lights.
