Citroen has unveiled the first images of the C4 Cactus that’s destined for Latin America, which is developed locally and will be produced at the company’s Porto Real factory in Brazil.
Latin America is the second largest international region for the French automaker after China, with Citroen recording a 14 percent growth in 2017. In order to keep the momentum going, Citroen will offer a specially adapted version of the C4 Cactus in the region, including Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and Colombia.
Citroen didn’t went into great detail about the differences between the C4 Cactus that’s already available in Europe and the Latin American version, apart from a few styling updates, aimed at making the crossover look more rugged.
The changes include a redesigned bumper and new roof bars but the carmaker didn’t reveal if they will offer the Cactus with features like the hydraulic suspension of the European model.
The updated C4 Cactus has been on sale in Europe since last March, focusing on offering class-leading comfort and ride quality thanks to the new suspension system.
The Citroen C4 Cactus is expected to be launched in the region during the second half of the year and will join the C4 Lounge, a compact four-door sedan that’s currently being introduced in the market.
