New Citroen C4 Cactus Brings a Breath of Fresh Air to Compact Crossovers

Official photos of the production version of Citroën’s C4 Cactus Concept have popped up on the web giving us an early glimpse at the French automaker’s compact crossover model that will not only keep the same designation as the study, but also its funky looks.

In fact, you’ll be surprised to see how close the production car is to the concept, both inside and out, and that includes the air-filled bags on the doors, the protective rubber on the tailgate, and the sofa-style front bench seating. The biggest change over last year’s study is the omission of the pillarless doors.

If anything, Citroën’s C4 Cactus certainly stands out with its design in the increasingly popular and competitive compact crossover segment.

We expect to have full info on the Geneva Motor Show-bound car soon, possibly as early as tomorrow, so check back for more.
