Citroen offers simple and smart motoring experience with the C4 Cactus

Previewed as the Cactus concept back in September last year, the production-ready Citroen C4 Cactus retains the funky looks, practicality, and the radical but functional, 'Airbump' element. Citroen believes the Citroen C4 Cactus stands out from its rivals in the C segment, and unites good looks with functionality - with unique styling and flush surfaces that are free of harsh edges.

The C4 Cactus boasts a length of 4,160mm, sits 1,730mm wide and stands just 1,480mm tall for improved aerodynamics - with a 2,600mm wheelbase - akin to the C4 hatchback.

Fitted to the sides of the car and the bumpers, the innovative Airbump technology, they are available in four colours and can be matched with the ten body colours and three choices of interior trim for a wide range of personal customisation.

Above all they provide real protection, as the supple Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) skin comprises air capsules to absorb impacts - and require no specific maintenance, which contributes in reducing the vehicle repair costs. Don’t they remind your of Nike Air sneakers from the nineties?

Inside, the linear and tidy cabin provides more space for the driver and passengers cocooned in a friendly, relaxing environment. The rear passenger legroom is similar to the Citroen C4 - but with more compact exterior dimensions. Boot capacity is an adequate 358 litres.

The large panoramic sunroof provides effective shield from UV rays, while excellent light, heat and acoustic protection eliminates the need to fit a sunblind - which shaves 6kg of the vehicle weight.

Cars equipped with the Efficient Tronic Gearbox (ETG) feature a simplified 'Easy Push' system - comprising 'Drive, Neutral and Reverse' selection control on the lower fascia, while steering wheel paddles allow the driver to manually shift gears.

Tipping the scales at just 965kg, Citroen has adopted smaller latest generation engines, which reduce fuel consumption whilst maximising driveability. As a result, the C4 Cactus is available with a petrol version emitting less than 100g/km of CO2 and a diesel version emitting just 82g/km - despite returning 38.7km/L.

The only sport Akram watches is Formula One and aims to visit every race in the F1 calendar in a single year. Looks like he's going to be a busy man.

Its wonderful. Although its not in the same price category as the RR Evoque, I think the desire to own one will be for the same reasons : concept car looks & practicality. On other websites I saw you can also get it in a beautiful purple, red, and black.

The front row seats are like Honda Edix, can seat 3.

Interior looks like, but hard for me to appreciate the exterior. Looks like the car door accident and patched up. Likewise, the name "Cactus".... enough said

The smooth and rounded styling really stands out from today's trend of sharp and edgy design. And 965kg is incredible for a car with the dimension of a typical C-segment hatchback. I am seriously curious about how do they achieve this.

Flush interior looks great and new, not sure if the bubble wrap around the car can withstand a collision

haaa....tink those "bubble wraps" at the sides is to protect your vehicle from doors knocking when the vehicle beside you open it's door or any accidental small "touching" impacts around your vehicle.

Our world is evolving and customer expectations are expecting more and more which means ever greater demands on today’s products and services. With the New C4 Cactus, Citroën has acknowledged these new customer requirements, offering a real alternative to the traditional compact hatchback. Kudos!

I've only had the privilege of driving a Citroen Picasso once which I rented when my relatives came to SG for a holiday and my bread and butter Fit couldn't accommodate all of them but compared to the C4 Cactus, I must say the latter is in a all new different league of its own. Classy, unconventional and tastefully done up. Now, come, let's talk about the price tag. :$
