New C4 Cactus ‘Most Beautiful Interior’ at 2015 International Automobile Festival
The New Citroën C4 Cactus has scooped the ‘Most Beautiful Interior’ of the year prize at the 30th International Automobile Festival in Paris. Linda Jackson, CEO of the Citroën brand, collected the award.
Every year, the International Automobile Festival features a display of concept cars, celebrates automotive design and pays tribute to the year’s finest automotive and artistic achievements. Prizes are awarded by a jury of experts and enthusiasts from the worlds of motorsport, architecture, fashion, design, culture and media.
The judging panel, chaired this year by architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, awarded the New Citroën C4 Cactus with the ‘Most Beautiful Interior’ honour. The award goes to the production model with the most relevant design approach in terms of the harmony of shapes, materials and colours.
This accolade recognises the work of the interior design teams at Citroën. The interior of the Citroën C4 Cactus has a de-cluttered dashboard for a more comfortable cabin environment. It is this approach that won over the judges.
The interior is both stylish and functional, with special storage compartments and details, such as suitcase-style straps on the doors. The slimline, floating dashboard is topped by a large and easily accessible storage area created by transferring the front passenger airbag to the ceiling. Comfortable seats sport a sofa-inspired design, while the 7-inch touchscreen groups the majority of the car’s controls.
In addition to the judging panel, the Citroën C4 Cactus has already won over a considerable number of customers, totalling more than 42,000 orders in 2014.
