The new 2015 Citroen C4 Cactus is a very basic crossover SUV which is available from as little as £13,000. This is very cheap for a vehicle of this type and the French automobile manufacturing company are looking to beat such rivals as the Nissan Juke and Kia Soul.
Although this may be a cheap vehicle to buy and has some very basic features, its quirky looks, spacious interior and low running costs will certainly make this a popular vehicle across Europe.
In terms of available engines there are several variants of the 1.2L petrol engine and a couple versions of the 1.6L diesel engine. The 99bhp version of the 1.6L diesel is expected to be the most popular engine across Europe and has extremely low CO2 emissions of 87g/km. There is also a 89bhp version of the diesel engine and there are 74, 81 and 109bhp versions of the 1.2L petrol engine.
The C4 Cactus weighs in at less than 1 tonne which goes a long way to helping the vehicle have really good fuel economy. The exterior design includes side air pockets to help avoid any damage to the vehicle in a side on collision. They also give the vehicle a very unique look.
We mentioned earlier that this vehicle is very basic, and some of these basic features include a rear bench seat and pop out rear windows. I guess they needed to do this in order to keep the price low. It certainly is well worth considering in our opinion. A good value vehicle.
