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.

Citroën C4 Picasso wins 2015 “Best MPV” at Fleet World Honours

The Citroën C4 Picasso has once again managed to get the “Best MPV” during the 2015 Fleet World Honours held in London. Citroën had previously won this award in 2014. The new award in fact named the C4 Picasso as joint winner with Grand C4 Picasso. Fleet World Honours judge Steve Moody commented that Citroën had been manufacturing excellent MPVs and it is the C4 Picasso that takes advantage of this fact.

The 5-seater C4 Picasso is both stylish and distinctive but remains practical. Moody adds that what made the Grand C4 Picasso win is that it does not stop in setting the standard of the class and is the only 7-seater MPV than has less than 100g/km of CO2 emission despite not having a hybrid technology.

Both the C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso give buyers a wide range of equipment choices like an active radar-guided cruise control, dual-zone air conditioning, 7-inch Touch Drive interface with a 12-inch panoramic HD central display, and panoramic windscreen.

Citroen revealed its project created for the “2l/100 km vehicle” programme set up by the Plateforme de la Filiere Automobile industry group in France. Based on its latest crossover and dubbed the C4 Cactus Airflow 2L Concept, the new vehicle was unveiled at the 2014 Paris Motor Show and is looking better than expected.

The C4 Cactus is already a sexy crossover but in order to make it even more aerodynamic, Citroen added a new front bumper with three air intakes that continuously adjust in accordance with the vehicle use, new mobile side deflectors, wheels fitted with active shutters that are controlled by centrifugal force and 19-inch ultra low rolling resistance tyres.

Moreover, the wheel arches feature an ‘Air Curtain’ that can be activated with small aerodynamic slats on either end of the front bumper. Furthermore, the spoiler was lengthened and a new air extractor was added on the rear bumper in order to reduce air turbulence which can increase the drag coefficient.

The Villaverde plant of PSA/Peugeot-Citroen in Madrid, Spain commenced in April production of the C4 Cactus compact hatchback, the only model it would build starting 2015. The site has hired 200 new workers this year to bring its total workforce to 1,600 people and to support the commencement of C4 Cactus production.

The plant will increase the production of the new C4 until the output reaches 380 units daily in July. That means that the Villaverde plant will be able to build nearly 85,000 Cactus units annually, which is still much lower that the site’s annual capacity of 200,000 units.

Plant director Jose Carlos Robredo Bertol didn’t provide production targets since “the output will depend on the success of the model.” PSA just opened the order books for the C4 Cactus in select countries in Europe like France and Italy.

Airbump is fitted to the sides of the car and bumpers, this technology adds a graphic structure and is available in four colours: Black, Grey, Dune & Chocolate.

Citroen's new C4 Cactus model -- the first car in Citroen's new C-Line range – will go on sale in 2014. Among its highlights are protective body cladding and sofa-style front seating. With this range, Citroen hopes that its mainstream cars will earn a reputation as affordable cars that are practical, frugal, and can be owned with low costs.

The Cactus Concept displayed at the Frankfurt Auto Show last September featured protective cladding on the doors, referred to as Airbumps, as well as with a sofa-style front bench. Inside the Airbumps are air capsules meant to resist scratches and lessen damage from small impacts. Brand executives said that this feature saves owners the cost of repairing the body.

According to Frederic Duvernier, the external designer of the Cactus concept, the feature will be seen on the production car that’s due to start selling in the middle of 2014. He told Automotive News Europe that the Airbumps uses a material that’s highly durable and resistant, comparable to the material on the sole of a Nike Air shoe. He said that the Airbumps will guard the bodywork from small impacts, like being hit by a shopping trolley in a supermarket parking lot.

The all-new Citroën C4 Picasso will go on sale this September. The mini-MPV models will feature more frugal engines and will be built with a body that’s lighter. The C4 Picasso is built on the new PSA Group ‘EMP2’ platform that will be shared with the new Peugeot 308. It comes with advanced weight-reducing measures such as alloy body parts and a composite rear floor to save as much as 140kg in kerb weight model-for-model.

Other measures that save weight include the use of an aluminium bonnet and composite tailgate, which contribute as much as 70kg weight savings when combined. Citroën said that this new C4 Picasso weighs as much as C3 Picasso. Furthermore, the new platform offers a “usefully wider, shorter footprint,” which gives the new C4 a dynamic styling effect that is both “forceful and intense.”

The new platform gives the C4 new proportions with an overall length that’s shorter by 40mm and a 70mm shorter front overhang. However, it has wider tracks that are 83mm bigger at the front and 31mm at the rear. The interior is roomier due to its wheelbase that’s 55mm longer.

Since it does not want to offer discounts on its latest model, Citroen launched its latest compact hatchback, the C4, with a low base price that carmakers say will leave little room for price reductions at dealerships.

In France, the C4’s base retail price is EUR16,990 (about $23,310), compared with EUR16,390 for the Volkswagen Golf, EUR20,300 for the Renault Megane and EUR17,600 for the Ford Focus.
