Citroen C4 Cactus 1.2 PureTech Feel 5dr (6 speed) 19 Plate Delivery Miles - save 38%

I genuinely expect this to go cold as (A) it's a citroen & (B) a bit like a Juke it's very much a marmite car. But it's a huge saving of 38 % on a "focus/astra" sized car, making this great value for the spec that comes as standard.

110bhp petrol - 6 speed version & 3yrs warranty.

What? It doesn't have the egg boxes on the sides? - I liked them!
Quick review as recently bought one. Very smooth ride and comfy seats, infotainment is also good with rear camera, android/apple Air play and parking sensors. Love the bump protection which is great if you get quite a few knocks and bumps.

On the downside, this car is tiny inside and a real struggle if you are pretty tall and have larger children in the back seat. It's also not the most responsive car on slip roads, expect to have quite a few impatient Audi/BMW drivers with small man syndrome up your rear. The speakers are also absolutely awful so if you like music new speakers are an essential upgrade. Cup holder is ridiculously small.

In short, it's a great car for local journeys, school runs with younger kids and a trip to ASDA but not great as a family car replacement or long journeys.

whats the reliability on Citroens like these days ?


Not bad, better than BMW, Audi and Land Rover anyway.

£145, every petrol and diesel car with a list price of under £40,000 that has been registered on or after April 1st 2017 is the same figure.

Good review thanks. Looking at a petrol cheapy for a second car, city driving only - what's the real life mpg like?

But my point was it's still more cost effective running a car costing £500 a year in repairs and items above what you'd expect in a routine service like belts, filters etc than buying this.



I agree and a 2015 Peugeot 2008 is porbably worth 6k trade in. So spending another 6k so you don't pay for brakes seems a bit odd to me but maybe they want/need a new car.
great family car good on fuel also

Lol you've been lucky then , my turbo blew a week after I bought the car and it was £900 for a recon unit with fitting ...luck of the draw and there were no warning signs on test drive either , but as it was a private sale no option to replace the turbo or sell spares or repair

I find this with a lot of citroen cars.

I've driven this years c3 1.5 diesel and thought the steering was vague, floppy shifter, small pedals which are too close together for a size 11. Drive is smooth but suspension soft. It's not a drivers car.
Apparently no rev counter, and pop out rear windows.
Speaking as someone who was stupid enough to buy a 3 year old C4 Picasso 2 years ago, I'll never touch another Citroen again, over 2k of repairs required in that time, I'll be trading it in for something Japanese or Korean within the next few months.

Still the comfiest smoothest riding car I've been in


I had one as a hire car, loved the ride, hated the absolute terminal understeer. I suppose the high-riding nature of these sort of cars doesn't help, but I like a bit more initial bite from the front end.
Seems like a good deal.

If you buy one of these for between 11 and 12k then in 3 years time with <40k miles done you should be able to sell for at least 5 5k.
Very low depreciation for what is effectively a new car.
Had one for a holiday rental and it was a perfectly acceptable mid sized family car.

Get a 2014 Hyundai i10. Sorted.
We have a 2016 flair, got it last year for £8,000 with only 12,000 miles, really happy with it, loads of room, very comfortable drive.

We got a 3yr warranty/mot as well.

I've recently bought the Flair automatic model. I agree with most of what you've said, sound quality in my top of the range model is very good. There is also a feeling that the car is rock solid and well built. The car like all others has weak points but if they don't affect you this is a brilliant car with a different take on driving. Think of it as a very budget Rolls Royce in that the car can go fast but isn't sporting, it rewards you by driving smoothly where you can soak up a quiet cabin, comfortable seats and suspension, there's also a sense of occasion when you go out in it. Just don't go thinking all cars are like a Focus, this is different, interesting and fun. The dealer has been extremely good and nothing has broken...

That's the character of the car. Also saves cost and weight. I drive alone so never use the rear windows anyway. With air con why Open the window anyway

Something slightly bigger, four good seats and room for shopping / couple of overnight bags. More Golf sized.

When they launched the DS in the mid 50's it was way ahead of its time. And a total classic. An automotive Concorde.
Drove a friends one of these recently and was actually impressed with it - the spec and quality of citroen has improved, what I wasn't impressed about was the headlights... it was like 2 candles on the front of it, when you are used to xenon/led headlights these feel poor for nighttime visibility. Other than that heat for the price
You do know the difference between this cactus and a rteal one ?....

No - I'm merely stating that your opinion on Citroens is not only outdated but you appear to be extrapolating your experience to suggest that every Citroen is the same, which is clearly false.

I’m saying I won’t buy one because of the experience I had. You’re telling me I’m wrong and trying to use big words to make me change my mind. I’m entitled to my own opinion. But I’m guessing you don’t think people should be allowed.

Don't forget putting the turbo under load at low revs and not changing oil …Don't forget putting the turbo under load at low revs and not changing oil frequently. That will shorten turbo life.Nailed the main culprit though. See it all the time when people don't let a turbo spool down. 200,000 RPM to 0 with no lubricant... ouch. Saying that the response you tend to get is:'I'll only have it 2 years then I will be handing it back.'It's always put me off the 2nd hand turbo market.


Most newish (within the last 5 years) turboed cars have turbo cooling circuits that can work after the car has been switched off, to cool the turbo down adequately. If your turboed car hums under the bonnet at the end of every journey for 2-5 mins then likely you have this system and the turbo is being cooled down by a water circuit to a reasonable temp before the circulation is cut off.

Ah. I just rented an Audi Q2 diesel and that sound went on for ages after you'd switched the engine off! I wondered what it was...
