Citroën launches C4 Cactus 'Rip Curl' edition

Citroën’s New C4 Cactus Rip Curl Special Edition will cost from £18,480 OTR when it goes on sale next month.

Citroën teamed up with the surf brand for the Special Edition, which introduces Grip Control to the C4 Cactus range for the first time, and features Rip Curl inspired styling elements to ‘emphasise the adventurous character’ of the C4 Cactus.

Featuring unique interior and exterior styling elements to complement 'the adventurous nature of the model', the new Special Edition has Rip Curl graphics on the wings and rear quarter-lights; white roof rails and door mirrors; orange seatbelts; orange detailing on the audio speakers; and orange-trimmed carpet mats.

Embodying both brands ‘spirit of adventure’, the Special Edition also introduces the aforementioned Grip Control. This intelligent traction system allows drivers to select different modes to deal with the types of surfaces encountered as part of an adventurous outdoor lifestyle, such as snow, mud and sand. The new model features 17-inch diamond cut ‘Cross’ alloy wheels with Goodyear 4 seasons Mud+Snow tyres.

Available with a choice of two engines, the PureTech 110 S&S and the Blue HDi 100 - other features include a panoramic glass roof as standard, as well as a choice of five body colours – Obsidian Black (metallic), Arctic Steel (metallic), Pearl White (pearlescent), Sport Red and Tapenade Grey. Standard equipment includes aluminium-effect front and rear bumper protectors; rear parking sensors; a colour reversing camera; automatic air conditioning; automatic headlights and wipers; satellite navigation; a 6-speaker MP3 audio system; cruise control/speed limiter; and tinted rear windows.

The New Citroën C4 Cactus Rip Curl Special Edition will be available from 1 June, with prices starting from £18,480 OTR for the PureTech 110 S&S manual 100 and £19,210 OTR for the BlueHDi 100 manual 95.
