Used Citroën C4 Cactus
Introduced in 2014, the C4 Cactus is properly unique - even by Citroën standards. This is thanks to its new and ultra-futuristic style that really sparked the start of the striking new design language we see throughout the Citroën range today.
Space-age styling was blended with 'Airbumps' that were mounted on the side of the car, to prevent door dings, but also to set it apart from any other vehicle on the road. As well as stand-out styling, the C4 Cactus also features:
- Low running costs
- An ultra-stylish interior
- Enhanced comfort
- Typical French flair
Discover the C4 Cactus in more detail below, and whether it's the right used car for you.
Engines and Driving Experience
Like most everyday cars suitable for family life, the Citroën C4 Cactus features a mix of petrol and diesel engines to choose from.
A 1.2-litre is available with varying power levels - circa 100bhp. Our pick would be the punchier 110bhp variant, as the lesser powered versions sound a little forced when worked hard. They all return similar mpg however, at around 60mpg - although this is before the more stringent mpg test standards. A 1.6-litre diesel is also available, that can offer circa 80mpg.
To drive, the C4 Cactus is very comfortable with ultra-absorbing suspension to make typical UK roads feel much smoother, which teamed with the hugely comfortable seats ensure the C4 Cactus offers a pleasant overall driving experience. Although, due to the suspension, the car can lean a lot when pushed, but this is to be expected as it's by no means a sports car after all.
Practicality and Running Costs
With 5-doors as standard, the C4 Cactus has typical straight-forward family car practicality, along with a generous 358 litres of boot space, increasing to 1,170 litres with the seats folded flat.
As for running costs, the C4 Cactus isn't going to break the bank thanks to efficient petrol and diesel engines with over 50mpg possible, meaning fuel station visits won't cause huge dents in your bank account.
As for servicing, this is reasonable and straight forward and can be completed at any one of our official Evans Halshaw Citroën dealerships, where we also use 100% genuine Citroën parts, fitted by specially trained technicians.
Interior, Technology and Safety
Upon launch the Citroën C4 Cactus offered an interior like no other. A minimalist cabin features an air of quality, thanks to glossy plastic and premium feeling materials.
A nice digital, central infotainment screen is joined by a square instrument cluster that is also digital. It's very futuristic-looking and looked very space age when first seen in 2014.
The seats are also designed giving a design conscious appeal that will suit those who are unique and modern in their style. With Apple CarPlay and Android Auto mirror screening as standard, pairing your mobile phone is easy and straightforward too.
As for safety, traction control and Electronic Stability Control come as standard. Also available are useful features such as park assist and a reversing camera.
Is the Citroën C4 Cactus right for me?
If you are in the market for an utterly-unique crossover, then the C4 Cactus is certainly one to consider.
Earlier models are perhaps a little more 'out there', whereas facelifted versions from 2018 are slightly more reserved. Either way, if you enjoy a car that stands out for its unique style, you'll find it difficult to find a similar car which offers the same impact.
Other crossover vehicles may offer more space, and slightly better practicality but the whole package created by Citroën is attractive, especially with the comfort factor and the overall stylish vibe, which is mirrored on the interior too.
