Featured Car of the Month:

Citroën C4 Cactus

As a stylish and distinctive small crossover, the striking Citroën C4 Cactus brings powerful modernity and style together in a bold, functional design. At first glance, its striking concept car looks tell you that it is no run-of-the-mill vehicle. Its crossover styling cues and broad range of customisation options combine to create a car that is bound to exceed your expectations. Once you discover that it has been voted Best Small SUV by Auto Express, you'll know you've found a car with a fresh, new approach that warrants a closer look.

Useful technology

In a world first and unique to Citroën, the Airbump® technology makes the C4 Cactus instantly recognisable and is a stand-out design feature that absorbs minor impacts, reducing the stress and expense associated with car park dings and dents, and cutting service and repair costs over the lifetime of the car.

Other useful features of the C4 Cactus include the 'Magic Wash' windscreen wipers that reduce washer fluid consumption and reservoir size by 50%; the panoramic glazed roof with advanced heat protection; and the world's first roof-mounted passenger airbag, allowing for more in-dash storage.

In-car technology focuses on connectivity, efficiency and usability without adding complexity, so the C4 Cactus is simple - almost intuitive - to understand. A fully digital interface has controls grouped around a sleek seven-inch touchscreen which controls all the car's major functions from automatic air conditioning to the reversing camera and hands-free Bluetooth®.

Greater style and comfort

The proportions of the Citroën C4 Cactus are optimised for style, space and driving comfort with the decluttered cabin creating more room for passengers. The refreshingly modern exterior expresses the crossover styling – the semi-raised ride height, wheel arch extensions, short overhangs and roof bars – within its compact design.

Some features may be available on selected versions only.

With eleven body colours available and a range of interior customisation options, C4 Cactus is eminently personalisable. All versions are fitted with black Airbump® panels as standard with three additional colours also available depending on the body colour. The standard black door mirrors and rear quarter-panel inserts can be changed and even the roof bars can be personalised. A range of stylish wheels include three alloy designs and there are five choices of seat upholstery and interior ambiences (door trims and dashboard).

The Citroën C4 Cactus offers more of what really counts: simply great driving.
