Facelifted Citroen C4 Cactus Could Ditch Airbumps

Citroen’s funky-looking crossover, the C4 Cactus, is currently in its third year, meaning that the French manufacturer is prepping a midlife facelift.

Expected to debut soon, the updated model will bring more than just a new face, new rear end, and tweaks made throughout the cabin, as it’s also believed to ditch its famous Airbumps, reports AutoExpress.

Such a move might seem bold, although it does make sense as the current Cactus will be moved from its current position after the introduction of the new C3 AirCross and C5 Aircross, earlier this year.

The latter two are in charge of fulfilling the company’s need for SUVs, while the C4 Cactus should transform into a hatch, probably sitting alongside the ageing C4.

“The C4 Cactus is about ready for its midlife change, and will evolve slightly. The way that we will change it will mean that it will fit even better into the core model strategy. You know, at Citroen we never do anything conventional”, Citroen CEO Linda Jackson told the British publication.

“We want to give a successor, but we want to show it in coherence with the current strategy, to be bold, to be efficient in terms of comfort. We will reveal it in less than a year”, added Peugeot planning chief, Xavier Peugeot.

    I saw these in France last month. I wonder if some of the French styling quirks are done just to be French and different, or are they just to be French?
    This model was the most different of the different.

    Somehow I like this car, with its airbumps and all.

    I wish this car was sold in the US almost entirely because of those airbumps lol. They’re unique, and would make an instant fashion statement in a way that many other small cars haven’t been able to.

    It looks pretty well protected against door dings and shopping carts…

      So is my Pontiac Trans Sport, with plastic cladding over the plastic body. I bounced off a guard rail on a curve once, leaving some slight scars.
