Citroen Cactus C4

Citroen has aimed the SUV, hatchback and family car segments this time


When you first look at the new Citroen Cactus C4, you probably would ask yourself two questions for sure: the first ‘what’s that on the doors?’ and the second would be ‘why on earth did they name it the Cactus?’


Great economy with diesel engine

The Cactus is very economical as its 1.6-litre diesel engine is extremely frugal, promising a combined economy of 80.7 mpg with CO2 emissions of over 92g/km, qualifying it for a free road fund license. If you have a hard foot, then the figures may drop down to 70 mpg which is also brilliant.


So what are the answers then?


Well, to be honest, the first question can be answered really simple. The hideous and lumpy thing that you see on the doors are the latest invention from the Citroen to protect the car at busy roads and car parks, thanks to the Airbumps, your car is now in safe hands.


If that’s ugly, then why use it?


Don’t go for the looks, it may look ugly but it is really beneficial. The manufacturers have said that if you protect your mobile phones from the scratch and all sorts of damage, then why not your car.

It’s a pretty strong argument and does make some sense too. It often happens to motorists that when they return to their car, they find some dent or a scratch on their vehicle that had been caused by some inattentive driver. It’s a damn shame, but you don’t have to worry about it anymore.


What actually is Cactus?


It’s kind of hard to say at this point as it does get modular, chunky look in its small SUV guise and if you put aside the bumps, you’ll find an unfussy interior with spacious, open feel. The legroom and headroom in the front, as well as in the back is quite enough to accommodate three rear-seat passengers comfortably.

Its dashboard is stylish and equipped with a 7-in touch screen which includes reversing camera, accurate sat-nav and an entertainment system which boasts Bluetooth links for the cellular phones.




It is priced at £18,090 which makes it the first choice of people and gives a tough competition to Skoda Yeti or Nissan Juke.


The answer for the other question


In the last, the answer for the other question might be something like this: as the cactus wears the spikes for the safety, this model wears protection for everyone to see.
