The Citroen C4 Cactus has broken cover ahead of its official reveal
later today. The images, which surfaced online, reveal the production
model will stay true to the concept that previewed it at the Frankfurt
show last September.
The official reveal was set for this evening, marking five years
since Citroen’s DS line was launched and 136 years since the birth of
the company’s founder Andre Citroen.
Very few cosmetic tweaks have been made to the production version of
the C4 Cactus over the concept. Features including the rugged body
cladding and floating roof design both remain, while the striking ‘Air
Bump’ side panels have also been carried over – adding texture to the
cars simple lines as well as providing protection from low impact
collisions. The bold front end also remains but there is now a more
conventional headlight cluster.
The interior also closely mirrors that of the concept first seen at
the Frankfurt Motor Show last September, with the ‘lounge’ style seating
arrangement and minimalist dash. All major car functions are controlled
via dash-mounted touchscreen, with features such as the digital readout
and gear selector bespoke to this model.
Engine options were not released alongside the leaked images but we
can expect the lineup to mirror that of the standard Citroen C4, but
with a lower overall weight expect reduced CO2 emissions. More images
and full specifications will be released later today. For more details click here.
