Citroen is unveiling the New C4 Cactus, its new compact hatchback. The C4 Cactus has been substantially upgraded, adopting the classic cues of the segment in terms of technology and engines while continuing to stand apart through its singular personality and comfort. The car’s styling is as bold and modern as ever but gains enhanced status.
Inside, the New C4 Cactus offers unrivalled comfort, immersing occupants in a true cocoon. Benefiting from the Citroen Advanced Comfort programme, the New C4 Cactus is the first model in Europe to feature the suspension with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions (PHC), making the “magic carpet ride” effect accessible to the greatest number, and the first vehicle in the world to boast Advanced Comfort seats. With its unique personality, the New C4 Cactus is the last word in ultra-comfortable hatchbacks, set to be launched in Australia late 2018.
Following the global launch of the C3 in 2016 and the SUV offensive in 2017 with the C3 Aircross and C5 Aircross, Citroen is taking a further step forward in the roll-out of its product offensive and surprising the world once more with its new compact hatchback, the New C4 Cactus. The 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. The model’s status has also been boosted through the addition of segment essentials including 12 driver assistance systems, 3 connectivity technologies, engines developing up to 130 bhp and prestigious styling.
With its modern and distinctive design, the New C4 Cactus brings occupants an all-new experience of well-being. To that end, Citroen drew on its technological heritage in hydraulic suspension systems. This technology has been reinterpreted to become accessible to the greatest number. The New C4 Cactus is the first model in Europe to be equipped with the suspension with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions (PHC), and the first in the world to feature Advanced Comfort seats, providing all-new seating and ride comfort.
The New C4 Cactus brings a breath of fresh air and originality to the compact hatchback segment.
The New C4 Cactus naturally expresses its singular nature through a new, broad and expressive front end, restyled wings and doors, and a generous and smooth rear end home to new 3D-effect LED lights.
It shakes up the ultra-conventional cues in the compact hatchback segment through its well-proportioned and generous shapes, forming a pure and monolithic body design.
The model’s 2.60 m wheelbase and short overhangs ensure compact dimensions for excellent agility and handling while providing all the spaciousness expected in this segment. It features classic Citroen graphics underscoring the body flow, including Airbump on the lower part of the doors, a continuous glass waistline and floating roof, a two-tiered front end and a broad 3D-effect LED light signature at the rear.
It offers 31 exterior customisation possibilities with nine body colours and four Colour Packs comprising refined touches of colour with which customers can create a car in their own image. Inside, the functional, pure and uncluttered cabin immediately inspires a feeling of serenity. No fewer than five opulent and distinctive interior ambiances are on offer, providing brightness, softness and refinement.
The New C4 Cactus takes automotive comfort into a new dimension. Taking advantage of all the components of the Citroen Advanced Comfort programme, the New C4 Cactus is the first model in Europe to feature technological advances for modern and all-encompassing comfort.
It boasts extraordinary ride comfort thanks to the European-first implementation of suspension with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions (PHC) that filters out road imperfections and gives passengers the feeling of travelling on a magic carpet. It is also the world’s first car to feature the new Advanced Comfort seats, offering top-flight approach and postural comfort. The New C4 Cactus also makes a generational leap in terms of acoustic insulation and day-to-day equipment.
Passengers travel in complete ease and relaxation thanks to 12 driver assistance systems and three connectivity technologies. The car’s high-performance and efficient engines also contribute to the pleasure and peace of mind felt at the wheel.
The New C4 Cactus is due to be released in Australia late 2018. The specifications for the Australian model have not been confirmed, the above information refers to the Global Launch.
