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.

Like what? We don’t have any British car manufacturers now...

Um JLR, Aston Martin and the many other car manufacturers that have set up plants in the UK??

You do know the difference between this cactus and a rteal one ?....


Since no one else has answered,

A real cactus has the pr*cks on the outside
Do they do any trade in or scrappage scheme on top of this deal do get the price down a bit more? Yes Im greedy I know!

I really doubt it. I had a cactus on lease for 18 months. It’s nowhere near a Range Rover. Unless your friend has one from 40 years ago?
If you want to go french, for a bit more you could have Megane 1.2 pre reg estate: ccrmotorco.co.uk/use…01/

Theirs is a 2015, huge wheels, rides horribly as you'd expect for a 2 tonne car. Only car I've been in with a similar comfy ride is a lexus LS.

My dad runs a huge wheeled Range Rover. You barely feel speed bumps so not sure what your friend is doing.
Personal Opinion - But this is the ugliest interior I've seen in a car. Although good deal for someone who like it. Head added.
Missus had the last generation. Flair spec.

Quite simply an absolutely excellent car. Incredibly, almost unfeasibly, comfortable yet also not too boaty. Practical, kooky and unique in a world of losers in their used BMW 3 series and Audi A4's that they convince themselves validates their existence because they've finally made it off the estate, qualified for a loan and got one!

Those are the types you'll see casting aspersions.

Simply can't go wrong at this money.
Can’t argue with price if this is your thing, but my partner’s Cactus that I have had access to for the last few months (admittedly 5 gear automatic) is simply the worst newish car I have driven (I use hire cars abroad multiple times a year) and I would genuinely avoid it at all costs. Please test drive to avoid potentially regretting.

Haha okay ownership is a different matter. . Manufacturing is brighter now than it has been for some years. We should take pride in the fact that some people still want to invest in the British car industry.

But yes, it would be great to have a British owned large scale manufacturer. Chances of that happening in the near future are slim, and sadly even more slimmer if we continue to look inward.

O.K . So your telling me that contaminated oil containing coked up particles from pollution from the EGR / DPF problems never caused oil starvation to the feed / return lines to turbochargers ?

The turbocharger gets changed and the oils system not flushed; 1000 miles later another turbo blows.

Look up the old 1.6 DV PSA diesel engine. One of the most efficient engines at its time; slated as comptely unreliable because people couldn't read a service schedule.

car manufacturing in uk is down 20% in first half of year. Not bright at all. Nissan dropped Infiniti in Europe all together and also nmuk lost xtrail manufacture.
Had one as a.hire car in Spain this year and was really impressed. Plush ride and good gadgets. Air con was powerful enough. Room for two adults and two kids. I'm 6'3 and it didn't feel cramped.

Crikey its gone down hill since I had the original one. I had a an all black one when they first came out it was a 1.6 Diesel and it pulled like a train up hills and loads of room inside especially in the back due to no electric windows there was more space at the doors area and the speakers and stereo were brilliant. - Ours did have a the jukebox on (hard drive for music) and upgraded speakers and I think they ditched them soon after we got ours. Our new Seat has a decent music system but not as good as the Cactus had and we noticed the difference

there are a few bits done to lower cost / weight.... pop out windows, no grab handles, etc but a good value for money car.

touchscreen can be temperamental and sat nav has a few foibles.
The spec list seems a bit primitive. Compare it to Ford where there's a swathe of up to date tech and driver aids. It's a shame that Ford infotainment system crashes all the time though so I guess you can't have everything. Where's the driver aids Citroen?

So then your comment is invalid because I was right then by what I initially said ?

'The turbo has nothing to do with changing the oil.' - that's what it reads; you are wrong.

It's really good the internet. Allows you to look up all the answers before making a post... or was you using it as an excuse to flex your engineering prowess on a deal forum ?

What kind of driving aids are you on about?

This has all the standard ones, abs, traction control, stability control, cruise control and speed limiter. Also and option for auto parking.

It doesn't have adaptive cruise control, pedestrian detection, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, traffic sign recognition and GPS speed limit control. You can get those on Ford cars and the Focus has just about all of those as standard, even the Fiesta has many of them. I don't have a Ford myself but in comparison this has the most basic driver aids, they would have been great spec 10 years ago but things have moved on. Once you've used adaptive cruise control you won't want to go back.

Ford have brought all these to market, and started doing so 5+ years ago, and added more driver aids as the tech became available, so latest Fords have most of what you require.

Oh didnt even realise most of those were even a thing. Saying that the car I had before my cactus didnt have a single driver aid on it and I still survived!

Guess they are all nice to have but not really crucial.
Has anyone bought this car from here?

i am thinking of buying this.

Can I buy it without finance?
Bought one last year similar spec from Evans Halshaw wife loves it.
