The Citroën C4 Cactus is a compact SUV, first released in 2014, it was the first to showcase Citroën’s new airbump technology. The airbump panels, which were designed to protect the car from damage in car parks, were very distinctive and took up a lot of space on the car.
Originally the C4 Cactus was only available with a choice of three trim levels and two engines. The lowest price trim level was the Touch, followed by Feel and then Flair. Engine choice was between a 1.2L petrol or 1.6L diesel.
In 2016 Citroën added three more trim levels to the Cactus; Flair Edition, Rip Curl and W.
The latest Citroën C4 Cactus design was released in 2018 with a fresh new look, still keeping the airbumps, but making them much subtler. You can tell the 2014 and 2018 models apart by their airbumps, in the 2018 model they are much lower down at the sides of the car and have been removed from the back.
Trim level choices for the 2018 remodel of the C4 Cactus include Feel, Flair and Origins, with Feel being the lowest price in the range and Flair being the highest.
The redesigned model was also brought into line with the technological upgrades of the rest of the Citroën range including Emergency brake assist, lane departure warning system, traffic signage recognition, blind spot monitoring and automated parking.
From new you’re currently looking at around £18,815 - £20,715, but as a used car the C4 Cactus is viewed by many as a sensible choice. With a purchase price that undercuts it’s similarly sized rivals, considerably specced trim levels and a choice of frugal petrol and diesel engines, what’s not to love?
