The Cactus measures 4160mm long, 1480mm tall and 1730mm wide, sitting on a 2600mm wheelbase. Making it just a little smaller than Citroen’s C4 hatch, but larger than the little C3. Importantly, the Cactus weighs less than 1000kg, coming in at just 965kg – making it 200kg lighter than the C4.
Inside, the the C4 Cactus features the same sofa-like bench seat that was found in the concept but it packs a simpler digital instrument cluster and a full center console. The center stack is dominated by a seven-inch touch screen that groups all of the vehicle’s key functions including climate control, entertainment, connectivity, driving aids (such as cruise control and park assist), navigation and even the owner’s manual.
In Europe, the C4 Cactus will be offered with a 60kW 1.0 litre three-cylinder turbo petrol engine, along with an 80kW e-THP powertrain and 67kW eHDI and 7kW BlueHDI diesel units – the latter using just 3.1 l/100km of fuel.
The safety features will include Airbag In Roof technology transferring the passenger airbag to the roof & deploying it over the windscreen, Park Assist and parking Camera, Hill-Start Assist, and Citroën eTouch service for emergency and assistance call system…
