Citroen C4 Cactus scraps quirky look for a more mainstream guise for 2018

Since its release in 2014, the Citroen C4 Cactus has always been loved by car enthusiasts, thanks to its quirky look. But for 2018, it seems like the French automaker plans to give the compact hatchback a more conventional look instead. Aside from that, the automaker will be giving it substantial upgrades, inside and out - from a softer suspension to a floating-roof design. Plus, customers will have over 31 exterior combinations to choose from.

But if you were a huge fan of the C4 Cactus’ original look, there’s nothing to worry about because some of the design cues still carry over. These include the Airbump side panels but these have been minimized and moved further down to the bottom sill. The sleek headlights also remain from the 2014 model year. The company explains that the C4 will still be bold, while it “gains enhanced status”.

For the exterior, customers can choose from nine colour options including Polar White, Platinum Grey, Sport Red and some others. The body can then be paired with your choice of five different alloy wheels - from 16-inch grey and black square designs on the lower trim models, or the 17-inch cross wheel that is available in several colours too.

Moreover, the wheel arches feature an ‘Air Curtain’ that can be activated with small aerodynamic slats on either end of the front bumper.
