The Citroen C4 Cactus has been in the pipeline for at least two years and is arguably one of the most anticipated models to ever grace the market. The different futuristic look on the model has given some of the worlds largest automotive publications something to write about.
The Citroen and Peugeot brand has been in financial difficulty of late as the European Car Market has had to watch as demand dwindles. The firm have publicly announced that they have struggled over the last 24 months and have received financial backing and assistance from the French Government.
The firm also announced that they had found themselves in that situation due to a high dependence on home grown sales. However, it seems that the worst is now behind the pair of brands as new city car developments and the C4 Cactus are coming in to increase the sales and the market share of the two brands.
The small city car development between Peugeot, Citroen and Toyota has been one of the most successful ventures in automotive history. The small C1, 107 and Aygo models have dominated the segment for nearly a decade and have only just released the second generation of models.
Most recently we have seen the product of all three manufacturers as the Toyota Aygo, Peugeot 107 and the Citroen C1 were all unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. The Toyota Aygo was the most striking of the tree as the new paintwork on the model really set it apart from the rest.
The Citroen C4 Cactus on the other hand will pose the biggest threat to the crossover market leader, the Nissan Qashqai. The Citroen model will be priced at just £13,000 which is by far the cheapest model in the crossover market and with the different futuristic look and features many motorists will be more intrigued and interested in purchasing a model.
