The Citroën C4 Cactus is a mini crossover produced by French automaker Citroën in Spain. The C4 Cactus is considered as a compact SUV although it is based on the PSA PF1 platform that underpins the smaller Citroën C3 and DS3. A distinctive design feature is the “Airbump” panels on the car's sides, designed to protect the vehicle from damage in car parks. The Citroën C-Cactus concept presented at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show previewed the production version.
Production and sales[edit | edit source]
Production started in spring 2014 at PSA's factory in Villaverde, Madrid. Sales commenced in France in June 2014. It is a 5-door SUV in Touch, Feel and Flair trim levels and is powered by 1.2 L Inline-three engine petrol and 1.6 litreInline-four engine diesel engines. In 2016, three further trim levels were added to the C4 Cactus range: Flair Edition, Rip Curl and W. The Rip Curl is a collaboration with the surfing brand of the same name and is marketed as a more adventure-based vehicle, with its 'Grip Control' feature meaning the driver can adjust the car to driving on either tarmac, snow, mud orice. This works by the ECU adjusting the power delivery to each of the front wheels independently, based on whichever wheel has more grip at any one moment. Aside from 4-season Goodyear tyres, all other changes are purely aesthetic, with 'Rip Curl' graphics and orange seat belts amongst the differences. The 'W' trim is an all-white model, with a Pearl White body colour, plus white door mirrors, door handles, roof bars and alloy wheels.
