Fabulous French “forbidden fruit”

2018-2019 Citroen C4 Cactus – one of the few cars that year after the presentation of the concept has managed to reach the conveyor, and even without any changes. The front car has received two headlights sections: the upper and lower lashes LED – halogen headlamps main beam. Recent addition protected by special polyurethane “leather” inserts, filled with air, – the new 2018-2019 Citroen technology. This technology is called Airbumps, which means air bubbles. This idea turned out to be very useful, especially when you consider the lack of parking space in the European tourist cities. On this score, Mark Lloyd, a leading designer of the company, said: “Why do people protect their smartphones, but do not think about the protection of your own car?”. On the side, the “white whale” is equipped by a protective “field” of 15 Airbumps. Inside the black wheel arches are 17-inch wheels with X-shaped spokes. Behind, Cactus Files Manager is also equipped with a number of “spikes”, located under the square headlights with rounded corners, and on the trunk lid mounted spoiler – visor.

Inside quite spacious, despite the fact that the size of the car about identical to the VW Golf of the seventh generation . The design is quite simple and is a set of flat surfaces with curved edges. The front landing sites presented very solid and comfortable sofa, split triangular armrest. Before the driver positioned the steering wheel of large diameter with a curved bottom spokes and paddle shifters. The instrument panel is replaced by a digital display, with red numbers at the bottom, which counts the number of “wound” kilometer. The center console is also equipped with a touch screen navigation system, climate control and multimedia. This step has allowed to minimize the presence of buttons, leaving only little space for the three-button mode 5-speed automatic transmission: Drive, Reverse and Neutral. But Parking space for buttons not found. Rear passengers get hard straight back and a bit of free space. But if it is hot, the rear window will open completely. The windows are opened only as vents, allowing designers to save 11 kg of weight.

965 kilograms unladen weight drives the 1.2-liter three-cylinder turbo engine with a capacity of 82 horsepower. Although dispersal to hundred occupies an impressive 12.5 seconds and top speed is 171 km / h, the car behaves obediently and confidently at a cruising speed of 110 km / h.

Prices for such an unusual novelty in Europe start from 20 000 euros.
