New Citroen C4 Cactus range revealed
Strong demand for the range-topping Citroen C4 Cactus Flair leads to streamlining of line-up
Citroen has streamlined the Citroen C4 Cactus range after strong sales of the range-topping Flair model. Citroen announced similar changes to the C3 range last week following similar sales patterns. Citroen has reduced the C4 Cactus range from three to two trim levels, while offering more standard equipment for each. The engine range has also been updated to reduce emissions.
The C4 Cactus Flair has so far accounted for 80% of C4 Cactus orders in 2019. The growth in demand for the highest trim level has led the manufacturer to discontinue the entry-level Feel model from October. This leaves the Origins, launched earlier this year, and the range-topping Flair as the two remaining models in the C4 Cactus range.
The Origins model features 17-inch black alloy wheels, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, rear parking sensors, automatic air-conditioning, automatic lights and windscreen wipers, and a seven-inch colour touchscreen.
The best selling Flair model adds Citroën Connect Box Emergency & Assistance System (an emergency call system), Active Safety Brake, Speed Limit Recognition, colour reversing camera and Citroën Connect Nav with a three-year subscription to TomTom Live for real time traffic updates. Citroen has added front parking sensors, keyless entry and push-button start to the Flair as part of the update.
The other changes to the C4 Cactus take place under the bonnet. A new RDE2-compliant PureTech engine is available with manual or automatic transmissions, as is a BlueHDi diesel engine.
Prices for the Origins petrol model with a manual gearbox start at £20,090. The Flair model costs £21,340 in this form, or £23,140 with an automatic. The diesel costs £22,140 with a manual gearbox and £23,705 with an automatic.
