The Citroën C4 Cactus showcases its bold personality with unusual features that highlight their functions, like the stylish, practical roof bars and the quirky Airbump® panels that protect the car from small everyday dings and scrapes.

Airbump®: a world exclusive

The Airbump® panels are a global exclusive that blend quirky style with innovative function. They protect your car from minor everyday bumps and scrapes, while adding to your Citroën C4 Cactus' unusual, eye-catching design.

The clever Airbump® panels are made from supply TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) and include tiny air capsules that absorb impacts and help prevent scratches. They don't need any maintenance and help cut costs from small scratches and bumps.

Sleek interior design

The inside of the Citroën C4 Cactus is as cleverly designed as the exterior, with a clean, uncluttered look and advanced technology for greater comfort.

The sleek design, slim dashboard and 7 inch Touch Drive interface frees up space for you and your passengers. It looks incredibly striking while at the same time feeling natural and comfortable.

Ingenious storage

The Citroën C4 Cactus includes the Top Box - a spacious glovebox that you access from the top of the dashboard. This was made possible by our smart Airbag in Roof technology, which moves the passenger airbag to the roof.
An impressive 8.5 litres of space means you can keep everything you need and within easy reach.

Inspired styling

Passenger airbag moved to the roof

Airbag in Roof is a global exclusive technology that we developed to provide better space and storage places, by moving the passenger airbag from the dashboard to the roof.

C4 Cactus Airbag in roof

The airbag deploys naturally over the length of the windscreen while giving you the same safety standards as a conventional airbag. 

Magic Wash: economy and safety

747x322_citroen-c4-cactus-magic-wash

Magic Wash is a simple, ingenious innovation from us that halves the amount of windscreen washing fluid used and removes visibility problems when you're washing the windscreen.

747x322_citroen-c4-cactus-gicleurs

The windscreen washer nozzles are built into the tips of the wipers and release just a small amount of fluid. So your vision isn't blocked, the bonnet stays clean and you save on washing fluid.  

Letting the light in... and keeping the heat out

The Citroën C4 Cactus' panoramic sunroof features an innovative treatment that lets loads of light in while keeping the heat and the UV rays out.

There's no need for a blind, so this innovation keeps the car's weight down too.

Driving Aids

We've added helpful driving aids to the Citroën C4 Cactus to make day-to-day driving as easy as possible for you.

Park Assist System

747x322_ParkAssist

For easy parking, the Park Assist system finds a space and helps you to park your Citroën C4 Cactus. You need only to use the accelerator and the brake - it does the hard work for you.

Rearview Camera

747x322_RearViewCamera

The colour reversing camera makes light work of parking manoeuvres and displays the image on the 7 inch Touch Drive interface.

Hill Start Assist

747x322_HillStart

Hill Start Assist keeps your car steady for two seconds and lets you start up again easily on slopes of over 3%.

Static Cornering Lights

747x322_StaticCornering

Static cornering lights provide an extra beam to light up the inside of bends, giving you better visibility and keeping you safe.

Citroën Multicity Connect

750x423_citroen-c4-cactus-multicity-connect
Another feature to make your life easier on the road is the Citroën Multicity Connect app portal, that you control from the 7 inch Touch Drive interface with 3G connection.

These apps make life easier for both you and your passengers:

  • use the Fuel app to find the nearest and/or cheapest service station.
  • try the Trip Advisor app to find a hotel or restaurant. 
  • use the Michelin Traffic app for traffic information.
  • access the Coyote app for alerts on high-risk traffic zones.

Keeping costs low

Delivering more and staying affordable.

There are two parts to a car's costs - buying the car and its running costs, like fuel and services.

We've developed practical solutions to keep your costs down by:

  • Innovations to save you money like the panoramic sunroof with advanced heat protection, and the Magic Wash wiper system
  • Latest-generation engines with PureTech petrol and BlueHDi diesel powertrains, to cut both fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions

A cost-effective car

We've built the Citroën C4 Cactus with smaller, latest-generation engines. We're looking ahead to the future Euro 6 standard, and these modern, efficient engines (PureTech petrol and BlueHDi diesel with Stop & Start) need very little fuel to run.

747x322_citroen-c4-cactus-moteur-bluehdi-100

A BlueHDi 100 engine is another step towards cleaner diesel, cutting CO₂ emissions to a record low (from 82g/km) and keeping fuel consumption on a tight rein up to 91.1mpg on a combined cycle.

Lower weight

750x423_citroen-c4-cactus-poids-maitrise
The Citroën C4 Cactus is 200kg lighter than the C4.

We worked hard to reduce the weight of the C4 Cactus with:

  • A compact, lightweight platform
  • Smaller, latest-generation engines
  • An aluminium bonnet and pop-out rear windows
  • Innovations like the panoramic sunroof with advanced heat protection and the Magic Wash wiper system

Lower running costs

We wanted to keep running costs as low as possible, so we got rid of things that weren't needed and used a lightweight platform with efficient, latest-generation engines.

You'll save on fuel with less than 100g/km of CO₂ and a diesel version that emits just 82g/km with extremely low fuel consumption of 91mpg on a combined cycle.

Because we've worked hard to keep the weight so low, parts won't wear out so quickly.

Overall, the running costs of the Citroën C4 Cactus are almost 20% lower than the benchmark vehicles in the compact hatchback segment.
