2016 Citroen C4 Cactus Review

Citroen C4 Cactus on the chopping block for Oz

The heavily revised C4 Cactus is looking less and less likely to make it to local Citroen showrooms, as the French brand shifts its focus to its SUV range. Revealed in October 2017, the updated C4 Cactus sports a far more subdued exterior, along with a raft of infotainment and driver technology upgrades to make it more competitive against rivals in the small car class – think Volkswagen Golf and PSA's own Peugeot 308...

(You can read Nick's original owner review here) My original review mentioned a few minor issues I won’t rehash but I will talk about the much-maligned transmission...

2016 Citroen C4 Cactus Exclusive 1.2i Puretech Review

I first came across the Citroen C4 Cactus in 2013 online and about the possibly of the car going into production. Being a Citroen fan for many years I knew I wanted it from the get go.

2016 Citroen C4 Cactus Exclusive 1.6 E-HDi Review

I might have been a bit keen on the Cactus from the first time I heard about it. Having been out in Europe for a while before arriving here, I was all set to buy one!
