The styling of the production Citroën C4 Cactus will stay largely true to the concept, as these photographs taken during cold weather testing show.
Speaking at the Frankfurt motor show last year, Citroën C Line boss Pierre Monferrini said reaction to the concept had been “very positive” and it was a “very important step for us as the concept is a very difficult one to explain without a concept car”. Cactus will become a name used for Citroëns that aim to offer buyers a simple, but not budget experience, offering them cars with well executed features of what they need and no frivolous extras.
Monferrini suggested the model would not be based on Citroën's new corporate EMP2 platform seen beneath the new C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso models, as well as the Peugeot 308. The model is instead set to get tried and trusted mechanicals from elsewhere in PSA.
