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.

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.

I used the term more expensive becuase they were more expensive than my VW rear disks, more expensive than the 2008 fronts whereas normally rears are cheaper and with ABS ring/bearing they are even more expensive.

I thought it was odd they put plastic side panels on...them made the front bumper body coloured metal. I'd Imagine the older models, and this newer side panel-less one will rust up on the front over time. Last car I had with bare metal on the low front was a maestro and that rusted like no one's business.

Mickey Mouse license?


Don't understand why people are against a car automatically doing something better than a human can. I have a full manual license, quite enjoy changing gears and the instinctive sense of just knowing when I need to drop down a gear and block changing etc. Still considering an auto as my next car as it would give me just two wide pedals for my big feet to be concerned with, and even though it doesn't feel like changing gears affects my attention I'm sure it probably does to a certain extent and an auto would allow me to focus better on the road.

Next we'll be going back to manual chokes, ignition advance/retard controls, and manual gear boxes with no synchromesh.

I suppose it having stop start doesn't damage the car also when it cuts the engine in and out when it's cold ?

I'm old school with rotating equipment. And there's no substitute for mechanical sympathy. It's just common sence.

You can get any new car with this sort of discount with the right digging, spaming accounts on carwow and so on. Got my renault zoe ze40 battery owned for about 18k when listed price with the extras I got was about 30k.
I have 2016. 1.6 hdi diesel. Love it. Drive all kinds of distance and find really comfy. My commute gets on average 60ish mpg.

It's loud, and you have a diesel, chances are you've interrupted an active DPF regeneration when finishing your journey - you'll hear the radiator fans blaring.

If there's just a low hum and beeps (think R2D2) then it'll be the cooling system for the turbo.

Possibly, it is loud but it does it pretty regularly and even on short jaunts to the shops etc, <30mph and c2miles.
Rented one of these for a few hundred miles last year - was really impressed for the money. Shame they’ve got rid of the airbumps, that was one of the neatest bits.

Makes them brilliant for a company car or lease car you part with after 3 years before they start failing!

Also Citroens are best bought between years 2 and 3. They don't get the discounts as much as other cars when new normally, but because they depreciate fast, its a pretty good buy after a couple of years!

Stop/start is disabled for a few minutes when really hot or cold. In some ways its good, but when its really hot, I prefer to manually disable stop/start because the car re-starts it after a few minutes and I want it to keep runniing the aircon when I'm stationary!

Irrelevant! When you buy a Ferarri, you might want a manual, but you're not looking for that in a Citroen.

No problem, glad it helped. The MPG is around 44-46 for me but suspect it could be better with more motorway usage. I mainly use it as a local run around and for short journeys have an 66 plate Astra Sports Tourer elite which is a monster size but hits 65mpg, anouther incredible car if you need something (much) bigger.

I wish it was. On my 208 GTi it used to get to the end of the road and stop start, after being turned over for less than 1 minute. Which is why I would rather trust myself than automation. Apparantly the ECU will do 100's of calculations to tell it when to stop the engine; but common sense would suggest otherwise.

I'm sure it's a tax fiddle having it pre selected to 'on'...

That is not good. I pay Zero Road Tax on my diesel Peugeot 308 eDTI (2014). 70 mpg plus on the motorway, 60 mpg while driving local, £90 mpg for service (including parts and labour) from local garage and no London congestion charge. These cars are a revelation. Both Citroens and Peugeots are very similar. My next car will be a French car again, maybe a 5008 if the horrendous price comes down in a couple of years. This is an excellent deal.
