The first tests Citroen C4 Cactus: soft and authentic

Observers of the British magazine Autocar did not evaluate the appearance of the car. The main “trick” C4 Cactus is, of course, suspension, and, according to our colleagues, to achieve complete isolation of the cabin from driving over potholes Citroen has failed, and stronger suffers the rear of the car.

However, the move C4 Cactus is softer and smoother cars of the same class. More comfortable and it dorestaylingovyh version, and you could even say that Citroen this car returned to the habits of old-school hatchback CX. On comparison with Volkswagen Golf and Peugeot 308 even out of the question – these cars behave very differently. And to pay for soft habits have in tight turns because the rolls are large by the standards of the class.

The wheel of the Citroen C4 Cactur is very light, but completely insensitive. To make the hatchback active cornering will be a hands-on.

Our colleagues have tested the car three-cylinder PureTech turbo engine capacity of 1.2 liters and the classical “mechanics” with six speed. To the motor no complaints: he works quietly and smoothly, and its 130 forces are quite enough for dynamic driving. Browsers also swept the 110-strong version of the motor, and, in their opinion, you can stay on this version, given that it is cheaper. As for the transmission, the first three gears unusually short.

Multimedia system C4 Cactus works fine: no complaints. Seat hatchback contribute to long-term travel, but they are set low, with the result that the backrest can interfere with the passengers feet in the back row.

Observers of the magazine Carmagazine agreed with his colleagues in the sense that the new C4 Cactus on the road feels like a classic Citroen CX. If you go in a straight line, that it effectively absorbs the unevenness of the road, but cornering lacks precise steering. But if you enter in a bend, sudden movements of steering, the hatchback provides excellent levels of grip.

As for the interior, it is an acquired taste, to digital instrument panel has no tachometer, and control options will have with a touchscreen multimedia system – individual buttons on the front panel a bit.

Front and back have plenty of room, and the door cards can be put 1.5 liter bottles of water.

Overall, the reviewers agreed that Citroen built a car, which, pardon the tautology, is a Citroen. It is not like the classmates, authentic, and provides a high level of comfort. Dynamics, it is not free, but sporty it is not.

Previously portal of the reported that PSA Group has revealed preliminary sales of the Citroen C3 Aircross in our country.
