Citroen C4 Cactus 1.6 Diesel - 12 Month Lease 10k Miles £1925.84 @ nationalvehiclesolutions

44
Found 5th Oct 2015
Seems to be even better than last time!
12 month lease, several options but best would seem to be 337.17 Deposit and 112.39 per month for 12 months.
Seems like a bargain to me coming in under 2k all in for a brand new fuel efficient car.

*Just noticed it says on hold until they get more units! still worth it if your not in a rush or as I do to use as a comparison quote for a local dealer*

Dude. You posted a Citroen Cactus deal on HUKD? You gonna get slated bru.



there have been loads of citroen leases on here over the last few months, including a Cactus. horrible looking car though
Don't get the plastic add on to the door
I had a DS3 for 6 months, if they had these rubberized panels on that.. I wouldn't have had dings on each side.

I personally think it looks horrible, but it would prevent scratching from other car doors.

We were allocated one of these for a hire car in Spain, it was fine. Plastic didnt stand out as much as was black.
Love the look!
This is the same deal as previously posted. You have just changed the initial payment from 9 months to 3 months upfront.

Fee £240
3 months initial payment £337

Ah I thought that could be the case! this seems to be a much more realistic option. Not many people have 1k to put down as a deposit every year!
Ugly
Saw one this morning in a dark colour and it looked good. At the end of the day whatever car you buy you will spend 90%of the time in it in a traffeic snarl up. So who cares what you drive as long as you get there safely and comfortably.?
Those air cushions although certainly an acquired taste are a genius idea no scratches, dings or dents at all. I wouldn't be surprised to see them have quite good residuals (for a Citroën) because after a few years the bodywork will still be good.

Be interesting to see how the plastic ages as well as long as it doesn't go that horrible bumper grey colour after 5 years in the sun...
I personally think these are one of the most individual and fresh looking cars of recent years. I'd definitely consider one. The only slight issue for me is the lack of a split/fold rear seat because I use this feature a lot in my current car.

Other than that, these are great.
They should use this car in the remake of European Vacation. Has Griswold written all over it.
I don't mind the outside, but the inside is bad
I like it in black

The Romanian car in Vacation looks better lol
Is this Citroen's attempt at matching the Fiat Multipla for ugliness? oO
There are far more ugly cars on the market. Multipla was very clever car and suprisingly reliable.
Cactus is also quite clever - low emissions (no road tax or very low tax), very low fuel consumption (70mpg+ can be easily achieved) and it looks at least different than ugly german cars.
VW Beetle, the original one, was also ugly. Ugly enough to be... pretty. And beloved.

Be careful when making a sentence with the words VW and emissions all in it. You might get this forum renamed hotukjokes.
Love these!
I'd rather sit on a cactus than drive one!
For the price, have some heat!
However, when adding heat I was sick a little in my mouth - so that makes up for me voting for such a hideous monstrosity.
I've enquired about 15k miles as 10 not enough for me. Wil let u know what that price is

I had this as a courtesy car for a week in March. The car I had was a 1.2 it was not fun at all to drive, it felt a bit sluggish however what I did enjoy most was the handling, no matter how hard you took a corner, you didn't feel it, not even the slightest!

The exterior is an acquired taste like most people say, I hated it at first but I eventually grew to like, though that might be because I started to call it a tank because nobody wanted to come near me! the air bump is brilliant, though it does look horrible it allows you to park in tight spots without worrying about some idiot slamming their door into your car!

the interior is nice, I hated the fact it didn't have a one touch window roll down,you have to press and hold it to open and fully close, the back windows are pop-out style! I didn't like the layout of the centre console (Though It did have a calculator!) The interior space is great the seats are wide and comfortable.


I'd seriously recommend a test drive first if you're interested in getting this car..

This is my personal opinion, I'm just comparing it to my 2015 1.4 VW Polo
It may be no looker but at least it isn't a BMW 'GT' :P

Yeah the standard 1.2 is sloooooow. The 1.2 turbo however is a hoot. Puts some 2.0 turbo diesels to shame at the traffic light grand prix. The tablet idea makes the dash look smart, but its not as intuitive as just turning a dial, and when you're flying around corners its hard to press it where you want. Its a car to waft along in, rather than chuck round corners.

Don't get the auto, its cack.

Thank you for your opinion, good idea about the test drive

It's much cheaper to get the snip, but I guess this would have the same effect without the pain?
Read today that this car managed to get 103 mpg in a "real road" test. Pretty awesome if you ask me. Personally I like it. Will be recommending to some friends of mine

Have a look on cactusforums.co.uk - plenty of advice on there, it's where I was looking last time the deal was on.

​At that sort of level it's going to rival a moped or electric cars.
Don't forget you will be driving the same brand as Ronnie Pickering
?does anyone know anywhere this is still avvailable
We had a 64 reg C4 Picasso 1.6 diesel for a month up until this morning, its probably very similar to this Cactus, just a bigger body shell. The car itself was fine, well built, 60+mpg on straight up motorway journeys, 40+mpg around town. Only let downs were the underpowered engine and transmission setup through an awful 5 speed manual gearbox; sluggish to pull away in 1st, countless crunches getting it into 3rd and only 5 forward gears. It was pretty sluggish up hill which I never found with the older Citroen/Peugeot 1.9 diesels. Having said that I could live with it as it was a very capable family car.

Definitely try and get a test drive.
Do you own the car if you have paid all the lease amount for under £2k?
