Launched in Brazil in 2018, the Citroën C4 Cactus has been a success in Latin America, ranking first in sales of segment B SUVs in Argentina, especially in 2021 and 2022. While the Citroën range expands with the arrival of the C3 and the future C3 Aircross, the C4 Cactus is not forgotten as it will remain in the catalogue for two more years with a slight restyling. vv
It is during this first half of the year that Citroën should unveil the first photos of the redesigned C4 Cactus, which, according to the first rumours, would involve minor aesthetic changes. Prototypes have been seen without being photographed and show a very slightly camouflaged front with a new grille, while the headlights should be identical. No changes are planned for the rear.
The innovations would mainly concern the interior, where the C4 Cactus could receive new atmospheres as well as modernised equipment, including 4 airbags as standard, as well as a multimedia set, revised and perhaps broadcast on a larger panel.
On the engine side, the C4 Cactus should continue to offer a 113 bhp 1.6 petrol engine and a 166 bhp 1.6 turbo engine, both mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Note that the turbo engine would only be available on the highest trim level, Shine Pack, while the other trim levels (Live, Feel and Feel Pack) will only offer the naturally aspirated engine.
This slight restyling explains the recent poor performance of the C4 Cactus in Brazil, with Citroën installing this new version on the Porto Real canals. The C4 Cactus is due to be launched in Latin America in a few weeks' time, which should allow it to go on the offensive again with an updated version.
