Like the look of Citroen’s popular C4 Cactus, but don’t want the ‘fun’ appearance of the standard model with its bright paint colours and contrasting Airbumps? The French car manufacturer has revealed its new Onetone special edition, which features featuring black paint, black Airbumps and black alloy wheels.

It sounds like it goes against the whole ethos of the Cactus to us – but then it does look rather mean in its Obsidian Black paint with ‘Onetone’ graphics on the rear quarter panels. Based on the range-topping Flair model, the Cactus Onetone comes with front parking sensors, Citroen’s Park Assist self-parking feature and tinted rear windows. Inside, there’s a two-tone leather steering wheel along with a navigation system and six-speaker stereo.

The C4 Cactus Onetone uses the regular PureTech 110 engine – a three-cylinder turbo petrol unit producing 110hp and good for a 0-62mph run of 9.3 seconds and a top speed of 117mph. Officially, it returns 65.7mpg and CO2 emissions of 100g/km.

The regular Citroen C4 Cactus has proven popular since it went on sale in 2014, with many taken with its quirky appearance and trolley-deflecting Airbumps. Last year’s Rip Curl special edition featured Rip Curl stickers, gloss white roof rails and orange seat belts.

Prices for the Onetone will start at £19,020 when it goes on sale in the UK in April – an increase of around £700 over the standard Cactus Flair.

Offering an elegantly styled exterior that plays on the harmony between the tone-on-tone black body paint, black Airbumps® and black alloy wheels, the C4 Cactus OneTone retains all the original personality of the iconic Citroën model, while adding a fresh new look and dynamic presence.

The new version features Obsidian Black metallic paint, 17-inch black ‘Cross’ alloy wheels and OneTone graphics on the rear quarter panels.

As part of the launch promotion, C4 Cactus OneTone features in a new attention-grabbing video advertisement. In what has become a well-known TV scene, a jury is auditioning contestants in a talent show. The next contestant is Annabel, an adorable little girl with the face of an angel, who instantly wins the hearts of the audience. Backstage, her nervous parents are comforted by the host. The jury asks the contestant to begin. To everyone’s astonishment, the little girl bursts into a rousing rendition of a hard rock song. Dressed in her little pink cardigan, but possessed by a heavy-metal spirit, Annabel belts out the song.

The mother and daughter are then seen leaving in the C4 Cactus OneTone with the sound of hard rock contrasting with the stylish elegance of the car.

The film perfectly sums up the Citroën C4 Cactus OneTone. Under its pure and elegant
all-black body, this car loses none of its edge. That same spirit is summed up in the advertising slogan, “GO BE DIFFERENT”.

The new advertising film made its UK debut on TV last Saturday (25 February) during The Voice.

The C4 Cactus PureTech 110 S&S manual OneTone is priced from just £19,020 MRRP OTR.
