The world is changing and so are the expectations of consumers which are changing with increasing speed. Citroen has the answer to modern needs with a revolutionary concept and execution of alternative compact hatchback. The Citroen C4 Cactus. In the fiercely competitive compact class, the unique design C4 Cactus singles both with attractive style and the very practical nature. A truly original vehicle responds to a difficult challenge: to offer consumers the maximum on what really matters for them. The external dimensions do not differ from the average category, with low height of 1,48 meters, ensures good aerodynamic performance. With a wheelbase of 2.6 meters similar to C4, the Cactus emphasizes to spaciousness. Design absent edges and roof gives the feeling of being suspended.
The flexible material used in the sides and bumpers of the C4 Cactus includes air pockets in order to absorb minor impacts. Requires no special maintenance and helps reduce maintenance costs and vehicle repair. It is available in four colors, black, gray, light beige and brown, which can be combined with 10 colors for the body and 3 options for the interior resulting in substantial potential for personalization. The first step to improve the comfort is the decongestion of the cabin, leaving more space for passengers. With the new provision the wide front seats reminiscent of a sofa and the shape creates a comfortable atmosphere. The passenger airbag is mounted on the roof (Technology Airbag In Roof), a world exclusive offers more space for passengers and more storage space. The controls on the console have been replaced by a 7 inch touchscreen of the controlled functions of the car such as air conditioning, stereo, phone, etc.
The panel has been replaced by a digital screen in versions with automated manual transmission ETG, the selector has been replaced by the Easy Push system, which consists of a selector with three positions D, N&R, and paddles on the steering wheel. The panoramic roof offers maximum protection from the heat with properties similar to those of sunglasses category and provides effective protection from the rays UV. Thanks to the new platform and the latest generation engines, Citroen has managed to reduce the weight of the Cactus by 200 pounds compared with the C4. The result is excellent driveability and low fuel consumption with 3,1 lt/100km and CO2 emissions of just 82 gr/km for the diesel version and under 100 gr/km for the petrol version.
