Ride and Handling

The C4 Cactus has a calm and secure behaviour on the road. It cannot be called a sporty car, its behaviour is a touch too soft and relaxed for that, but it doesn’t feel too loose or sloppy either. This is a family car for a family-transporting driver, mindful of passenger comfort. There is a touch of body roll on the bends, but the suspension is sufficiently well-damped to cushion it and it never becomes sickness-inducing.

The handling is certainly towards the comfort end of the tide-handling scale, and the Cactus copes well with a rutted back lane without unduly jostling its occupants. It is a pleasant car to drive, if not a particularly exciting one.

Ease of Use

This is a pretty easy and convenient car for everyday family use. The cabin majors on comfort, with sofa-style seating and pliant cushioning. Interior space is pretty good for the car’s external dimensions, and the lowish dashboard gives a light airy feel to the interior, which is greatly enhanced with the full-length panoramic roof. This has heat protective glass to prevent the cabin from becoming too glarey on a bright sunny day.

The boot is well shaped and a reasonable size at 358 litres, although the load height at the boot lip edge is relatively high.

Available equipment includes Park Assist, a colour reversing camera, hill start assist, and static corner lights with extra beams built into the headlights to illuminate the insides of bends as you approach them.
