Citroen C4 Cactus wins international design award
Citroen's innovative C4 Cactus has been awarded the 2015 World Car Design of the Year award at the New York Motor Show.
The Cactus, which went on sale in New Zealand at the beginning of this year, won thanks to " design that challenges the established codes and embodies a bold and inovative style."
They said the Citroen reconciled the attractive and the functional in its design.
Citroen's style director Alexandre Malval received the award late last week.
The Cactus joined a list of previous prize-winners, including the BMW i3, the Jaguar F-Type, the Range Rover Evoque and the Aston Martin Rapide.
Linda Jackson, Citroën's CEO, said:"This prestigious prize rewards all of the Citroën brand's audacity and creativity.
"Citroën C4 Cactus does not look like any other car, precisely because it is a Citroën, and because Citroën's design is different and unique."
She said Citroen had more surprises to come.
