Citroen's much-anticipated C4 Cactus will make its NZ debut this weekend.
The car demonstrates Citroen's brand promise of 'Creative Technologie' with unique styling and clever use of materials.
Airbumps on each side of the car, made from polyurethane, absorb minor impacts such as shopping trolleys and car doors while reducing repair and maintenance costs over the vehicle's life.
Features such as windscreen washer noddles and the panoramic glass roof are also unique.
"[The] innovative design features ... will no doubt become a real talking-point for prospective buyers," says Citroen divisional manager Simon Rose.
The C4 Cactus will be available in dealerships from Saturday, with pricing set at $35,990 for the 6-speed turbo-diesel model. A 5-speed petrol model is expected mid-year.
