2018 Citroen C4 Cactus review: Quirky comfort

Introduction

At its heart, the C4 Cactus is an easy-going, high-riding hatchback like a host of other crossovers, from the Seat Arona to the Nissan Juke, but it goes to greater lengths in pursuit of value for money, comfort and extrovert styling. It’s one of the most recognisable cars on the road, and it also has a great-looking cabin with interesting materials and design that puts it a long way from the boring cabins of many rivals.

Body Style: Hatchback           Seats: 5                    MRP from £17,965 - £21,165

 

Did you know? The standard Citroen C4 isn't in production any more - the C4 Cactus now fills that gap in the French maker's range.

Verdict 8.0 / 10

The C4 Cactus is a car that's built to make the daily grind easy to bear, with key design features inside and out that should lift your spirits. It's not the most dynamically fulfilling thing, and there are alternatives, such as a Seat Arona, that are more practical, but the Cactus is roomy enough to make light work of small family's motoring needs, and is one of the most comfortable family cars going. It's good value and well equipped, too.
