  1. Unfortunately, very unfortunately, this silly trend of touchscreens is just going to get worse. I lay the blame on everyone: customers, because they like new gadgets and gimmicks to show off in their new car, and carmakers, because they seem to have run out of ideas for proper innovation.

    It's a pity because I really like the cactus, but I I agree with Mr. Flavin. Those Citroën gearboxes feel like sticks dipped in sludge, and I would add the stupid rear windows as another gripe. How come a lower range C3 has back windows that open properly and the more expensive C4 cactus doesn't!? Madness.

    Love the videos, Mr. Flavin, I'm a long-time subscriber. Thumbs up

  2. Old one didn't sell well even if reviews were good. Interior was innovative but basic and plasticy. Wonder why airbump doir protectors was downgraded in new one

  3. I really look forward to hopefully upgrading to one of these over my mk 1 Cactus. My main criticism of mine is a high, stiff clutch on the turbo petrol and a ridiculously awkward shaped boot lip. Try getting a flatpack desk in the boot from IKEA, it ain't happening! The new version has a less intrusive light cluster and boot lip so that's ticked. They now have a good torque converter automatic and not those insipid automated manuals so other box ticked.

    Honestly, I don't find the touch screen heater that much of an issue. Only when the car first turns on and is cold it takes the touch screen a while to work out what it's doing but otherwise it's fine day to day.

  4. Watching and listening ,always a pleasant experience.Always nice to see cars we don't get to buy in the US.A strange fact popped out about the Road Tax or whatever the proper term is;something we don't have in the US.We have License plates w/ yearly renewal stickers ,and the fees vary state to state ,and sometimes even by county and city divisions.I live in Ohio,probably the most "typical average " American state.I paid around $45 per vehicle for the year.The State tried an Emissions Inspection Qualification for a few years,but it stopped due to complaints about inefficient requirements[if the owners couldn't afford to correct the problem],they received a waiver,so nothing really changed.They only had inspections in counties w/ more 500K people ,so it wasn't State Wide.Bureaucracy at its finest.

  5. I much prefer the outgoing one. It must of fell short of sales targets given its only lived for about 2 years. But I see them everywhere so they must of sold well.

  6. I've driven the Shine-spec 110 automatic and on very, very, very rough tarmac the Cactus performed magics over that road. On better roads the difference to "normal" cars isn't that big and you will seldom, if ever, get that boat feeling you have with the hydropneumatic suspension. The chassis seems stiff as hell and no noise is coming from the suspension, which is great! The car doesn't lean a bit when you go into corners and that is a bit weird when it has this comfortable suspension. I always prefered some lean in cars, don't know why, feels good! 🙂

  7. I still miss my C4 by Loeb ;( Doesn't look bad but I agree on the heater/infotainment controls. Looks better without the 'airbump' things as well.

  8. Already plenty on the roads here in SW France, as you might expect. However if the French don't buy a particular model then it is doomed. C3 pluriel for example.

  9. I really liked the previous version of the car too. Always felt like a car you'd hire on holiday and go to the beach in it. It's ride was bang on for crappy urban streets, economy spectacular (in diesel form at least) and it's just refreshing to look at/be in. I agree the utilitarian character probably asks for simpler controls but I've got a real soft spot for it.
