Citroen C4 Cactus generations

In 2014, Citroen released the stylish C4 Cactus crossover to compete against the Nissan Qashqai. The first element that stood out was the unique 'airbumps', which defended the sides of the car against car park dings. Citroen heavily updated the C4 Cactus in 2018, but despite the attractive styling and practical interior, the C4 Cactus didn't make it to a second generation and was discontinued in 2020, being replaced by the latest generation of C4.

Used Citroen C4 Cactus FAQ's

Which is the most popular engine in the Citroen C4 Cactus?

The petrol engines tend to be slightly more popular than the diesel in the used Cactus market, but they are all widely available among used models. Lower-powered engines are good for efficiency, but the higher-powered motors provide a little more acceleration without costing too much more to run.

Which are the most popular model variants?

In the end, Citroen offered the C4 Cactus in three model variants: Feel, Origins and Flair. The Flair variant is the most popular as it has more standard equipment, including rear parking sensors, traffic sign recognition and a reversing camera.

What optional extras should I look out for?

Customers should look out for a used C4 Cactus with a panoramic sunroof, which allows more sunlight into the cabin. Automatic climate control is also a popular option, offering more comfort for passengers, especially on warmer days.

Is the Citroen C4 Cactus a good family car?

Yes, the C4 Cactus is a practical crossover with space for the whole family. When rear passengers aren't in the car, the back seat can be folded down to create a decent amount of boot space.

Is there a hybrid version of the Citroen C4 Cactus?

No, Citroen didn't release a hybrid C4 Cactus before it was discontinued in 2020. Instead, the lineup has always consisted of petrol or diesel engines, all of which are pretty efficient, with ratings reaching more than 80mpg on some model variants.

Is the Citroen C4 Cactus available as an automatic?

Yes, there are automatic C4 Cactus models available. However, the manual gearbox is more popular, making it easier to find.

Is there a four-wheel drive version available?

No, all C4 Cactus models came equipped with front-wheel drive. This is primarily because it results in improved fuel efficiency, but also more space in the cabin.
