CITROEN C4 Cactus review

NGC verdict 10.02.2015

Although the C4 Cactus has quirky styling that might not be to everyone's taste there is no denying it has impressive official figures for fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. This is in part to its low weight, which Citroën has worked hard to reduce to 1,070 kg. If you're looking for something a little bit different that's cheap to buy and cheap to run then the C4 Cactus could be the right car for you.

At 83 MPG (official combined) and 87g/km (CO2), for emissions, the 1.6 BlueHDi diesel trumps all but the electric and hybrid cars in this segment. Even the petrol variant can achieve 66 MPG (official combined) with car tax-free CO2 emissions of only 98 g/km. It's also very well priced from £12,990 for the petrol and £15,390 for the diesel.
