A cardinal rule is to not waste food. V disappointing and it is sadly consistent with most other reviews. You are probably right, it just seems a shame that it’s the Cactus and it’s concept that seems to have been the stooge for another car’s failings (the tepid, damp and dullllllllllll C4). Regarding the restyling, I’m totally with you. It was by no means perfect, but I think Citröen was really onto something with a friendly, unaggressive car that would appeal to drivers who find the automotive industry’s obsession with 0-100kph and Nurburgring lap times very off putting. He repeats it 3 times . You wholeheartedly support customers as satisfactory.

Change ).

‘My’ Cactus came with burgundy and light grey seat fabric and a dash topped with matching soft-feel plastic in burgundy with light grey detailing. I’d say, the Advanced Comfort Seats help set a very early impression that you are about to drive something different and set this Citroën slightly apart from the crowd – which is just as it should be. Bee tee double-you: VW UK still list a three-door among the Golf body styles.

I can’t think of another volume manufacturer which is as poor at consistency of feel and weighting of controls as PSA and Citroën in particular – Ford, VW, Toyota and Hyundai would never let their cars out so encumbered. It was a “Down Memory Lane” trip for me and my good friend Marina. I conclude that the revised C4 Cactus has found itself dumped in the market equivalent of nowhere land. For Citroen it was rumoured that the cars in the cheap range would have the E suffix and the upper Citroens the C suffix (E3/C3 for ex.) I’ve only been made aware of this great place yesterday! Hence, I thought I’d write a short review of what I found, whether I liked it any better, and any other thoughts and observations. In isolation, I liked the C4 Cactus and literally breathed a sigh of relief when I sampled those seats, experienced that suspension and took in the cabin’s ambiance. One can see what they were trying to achieve given that the standard C4 has now effectively been replaced by the Cactus – the overall aim is to take away the quirky bits and create something more conservative in line with the current C3. I second the comment on c6 seats. screen displays for infotainment (slightly off-centre) and ID (directly in front of the driver). I like the seating´s form and the colour and trim options could lead one to think someone at PSA was reading DTW. Yes, that´s something I did not figure, as to how literally to take the price. It was released on September 7, 1990, by Def Jam Recordings; one year after 3rd Bass' debut album and one year before its second album. Cars are stupidly costly. Thank you for you seeing it. ( Log Out /  STOP PRESS! With a starting price of around £18,500, the Cactus is now squarely pitched at the bottom end of the Golf class. The C4 had to go.

That would be really sad news…. https://ibb.co/fE20JV Of course, no one is going to have to pay that much … I noted in the showroom that even the more popular C3 Aircross had sticker prices shouting the fact that the dealer had taken over £4k off the list price on two of the cars in stock (from £19k). The thing is that a lot of the penny-pinching which I described over four years ago is still there: the headlamps are pathetic; the controls for the door mirrors and headlamp level adjustment are not illuminated (and given they are tucked away to the right of the steering wheel (on RHD) it makes them a fumble to locate at night); the rear windows still only pop open; there are no grab handles; there’s no clutch foot-rest; etc. Some of the other proposals for the Airbumps were really out there: https://ibb.co/j4yqJV These combine to make a smooth take-off from a standstill something of a learned art and one which I failed to master in the relatively few miles and minutes I had at my disposal. The Cactus is a refreshing car, and it’s not so ridiculous to see it as a descedent of the 2CV – it’s light, reasonably spacious and capable of travelling over rough roads without too much complaint. Third, there is the problem with the exterior design – I think one could have argued that the original Cactus stood a chance, and that car was priced much more keenly – I note that at launch in 2014 one could buy a Cactus, albeit with a lower powered engine) for under £13,000. Jacomo – I actually think that the face-lift demonstrates that they have already abandoned the ‘Cactus’ concept. Sorry, yes it’s another article about the Citroën C4 Cactus.

Indeed, I wrote an article on the (then) new to the UK, C4 Cactus in September 2014. ( Log Out /  Thanks for this review, SV. Today, Providence has provided me with a chance to drive one of the facelifted C4 Cactii. For me, on top of the other potential reasons cited for its relative failure on the market, its apparent cheapness might be a big reason. It takes away too much of the Cactus’s character without really succeeding in making the car look more substantial. But the facelift takes away at least as much as it gives to the original car. The Cactus Revisited is a remix album from East Coast hip hop group 3rd Bass. I quite like the idea of a Citröen Kalanchoe or a Citröen Echeveria. A base model Golf costs 14K and and I see a Zetec Focus is 19k. Mind you, I would perhaps have retained a spiker version for those customers who liked the original…. Unable to add item to List. Max: is that moniker not very much in DTW style, a nod to the influence of metaphysical poetry that can be detected here? I will be amazed if the car’s replacement makes any reference to any kind of succulent.

It received both lackluster commercial and critical reception and is considered to be a patchy diversion, according to Dean Carlson of AllMusic. Our aim is to have a distinctive voice and to publish a diversity of writing you won’t find anywhere else. The clutch is imprecise and fluffy with a high biting point and the 5-speed gearbox is still long-winded, clonky and unsatisfying. Customers are now use to well put together vehicles, even for a cheap price and in my opinion the Cactus just doesn’t look well put together . Rover 200 anyone? Hi Max: I have noticed the same effect, to over-estimate the popularity of a model one likes. Cactus Revisited; Flamingos; Odes to Artists ...

As if in response to my challenge that there won’t be another Citroën going with the Cactus moniker (I like to delude myself at times), I spied this piece in Autocropley over the weekend: “New 2020 Citroen C4 Cactus to feature electric powertrain” (https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/new-cars/new-2020-citroen-c4-cactus-feature-electric-powertrain). Shop Cactus Revisited. Seriously, it’s a shame that Citröen has watered down the Cactus concept. Coupled with those seats and the cabin ambiance, Citroën’s attempt to make comfort cool is brave and effective. Please choose a different delivery location. But I realize now that I must have been biased to notice the one car that dared to be just a bit different versus all the grey and uniform best selling Golf Seven and a Halfs driving below my radar…, I really appreciate the Cactus for being different for all the right reasons and still being so beautifully French at it!

It is with some delight that I can report that the ride is very good for a car of this size and class (depending on which class you think it is in).

Is this re-badge, model-range-re-shuffle, “facelift”, watering down of the original then the declaration that the market just really doesn’t even the slightest bit of ingenuity? In addition, a walk around the Citroën showroom reveals that the revised Cactus also suffers at the hands of its siblings. https://ibb.co/dBykkA Once on the move, the engine delivers a nice swell of torque and stays thrummy but quite smooth although getting quite rough at the top end. Externally and internally. Most notably, as a family car, the lack of proper opening rear windows is just bizarre. I live in the middle of town so I live in an area with its own mix of cars and it´s not what Mr and Mrs Denmark are driving in the large tracts of bungalows that make up 50% of Danish urban areas.

Today, I dropped the C6 into a local dealer to have DPF additive – erm – added. I think the final car might have been rescued from a project that would have been a lot more basic and rudimentary, in the same vein as the original Cactus Concept-car.

While it does seem a pity that Citroen has elected to de-spike the Cactus, one can at least understand their dilemma. I understand the intention to de-SUV the car now the C3 Aircross is here and the actual C4 has to be replaced, but it shouldn’t make its supermini roots so obvious. To add insult, Citroën has left the C3 Aircross bereft of Airbumps – although it does also lack the soft seats and trick dampers of the new Cactus. Denmark has a huge private debt problem.
