Since the C4 Cactus Concept will be spawning a production model, it deserves more than a second look, as it’s a distinctly funky looking car; even by Citroen’s high oddness standards… It’s even retaining the rubber padding on the doors, known as Air Bumps, as well as that family of three favorite, the bench front seat.
The Air Bumps are designed to protect the side of the car from impacts with shopping trolleys, and as the prospective buyers explained to British magazine Whatcar, they fit nicely into the design; one person goes as far as to say he would not picture it without them.
The C4 Cactus promises to be a great family companion, with a fuss-free but elegant interior (that some found a bit cramped in the back) packed full of the latest gadgets. If only they could nail down the dodgy driving dynamics that keep plaguing all of their models, it would definitely help their cause.
