Introducing the Citroën C4 Cactus
Citroën pride themselves on the innovative design and engineering that goes into their vehicles, which is there for all to see in the C4 Cactus. Having adopted the classic traits that make small SUVs so popular, the C4 Cactus continues to stand above rivals with its quirky character.
The French manufacturer have placed a great deal of emphasis on maximising comfort, which is reflected in the unique suspension design and meticulous attention to detail that has been paid to the construction of the seats.
A number of efficient engine and gearboxes are available, which you can read more about below. We've also highlighted the other key features of the C4 Cactus.
Design and Practicality
Originality is the name of the game for Citroën, which they look to have comfortably mastered with the C4 Cactus. The effortless flow from the front to rear is impressive, but it's features such as the Airbump® panels on the side and the two-tiered headlights that take this SUV up a level.
C4 Cactus has been designed to match your personality, which is why there are 22 possible colour combinations for the exterior. This personalisation continues into the cabin, where a number of different material and colour designs are ready to complement the Citroën Advanced Comfort® seats.
Boot space is generous, with 358 litres at your disposal. This grows to a massive 1,170 litres once the rear seats have been folded down.
Technology and Safety
Exclusive to the Citroën brand are the Progressive Hydraulic Cusions®, which have been fitted to the C4 Cactus. Essentially, they have been engineered to soak up larger impacts and even out minor imperfections on the road. The result is the feeling of gliding over the road in poise and silence.
C4 Cactus has been packed with 10 driver aids and notable safety technologies, which all make life easier during the daily commute. Keyless entry and start is a godsend when you have your hands full, while the addition of a reversing camera is greatly appreciated when parking in a tight space.
Safety features include:
- Lane Departure Warning
- Cornering Light Function
- Active Safety Brake
- Blind Spot Monitoring System
