Citroen has unveiled the new C4 Cactus, its new compact hatchback, with styling as bold and modern as ever.
Influenced by the Citroen ‘Advanced Comfort’ programme, the new C4 Cactus is the first model in Europe to feature the brand’s new suspension system with progressive hydraulic cushions, which the French carmaker says, is like creating a "magic carpet ride" effect.
It is also the first vehicle in the world to boast ‘advanced comfort’ seats. With its unique personality, Citroen believes the new C4 Cactus is set to shake up the market in the first quarter of 2018.
Following the successful launch of new C3 in 2016, and its SUV offensive in 2017 with the new C3 Aircross and new C5 Aircross, Citroen says it is continuing the roll-out of its full product offensive and surprising the world once again with its new compact hatchback, the new C4 Cactus.
Citroen says this new model brings a breath of fresh air to the hatchback segment by blending the singular personality of the C4 Cactus with the class-leading comfort of the C4 hatchback. The model's status has also received a boost through the addition of segment essentials, such as 12 driver assistance systems, three connectivity technologies, and a revised engine line-up, with power units now developing up to 130hp.
With its modern and distinctive design, Citroen claims the new C4 Cactus also brings its occupants a "new experience of well-being".
Citroen tells us it took inspiration from its technological heritage in terms of hydraulic suspension systems, reinterpreted this technical expertise, and has now created a solution that is accessible to the greatest number of customers. The new C4 Cactus is the first model in Europe to be equipped with the Citroën brand’s new suspension system with PHC, and the first in the world to feature advanced comfort seats.
Citroen's new compact hatchback combines the singular personality of the C4 Cactus with the comfort and spaciousness of the C4 hatchback. The C4 Cactus retains all of its originality in the form of its unique design that has been upscaled with new panels, redesigned wings, slimmer and repositioned airbump panels, plus new 3D-effect LED rear lights.
The interior design of the new model has enhanced cabin space, comfort and well-being. Overall, it certainly looks like bringing a breath of fresh air and originality to the compact hatchback segment.
