Refreshed Citroen C4 Cactus Gains Hydraulic Suspension For A Smoother Ride

The C4 Cactus has been a given a mid-life facelift, but in odds with manufacturers scrambling to turn everything this side of a convertible into an SUV, Citroen has instead chose to tone down the original car's SUV pretence in favour of some more mainstream styling.

The biggest visual change is a relative lack of exterior cladding.

The most significant change for the C4 Cactus however is in the suspension department, where Citroen has employed its new "Progressive Hydraulic Cushion" system which promises deliver a "magic carpet ride" - something Citroen was famed for in the past. Citroen originally fitted the C4 Cactus with large, practical plastic "Airbump" trim pieces, which offered protection from vehicle park dings and gave the C4 Cactus an appealing rough-and-tumble look. At the rear, Citroen has spread the rear lights onto the boot-lid in an attempt at giving the vehicle a wider stance, also featuring new LED graphics.

$0.40 EPS Expected for Newfield Exploration Co. (NFX)
Currently, 199 million total shares are owned by the public and among those 198.33 million shares have been available to trade. Zurcher Kantonalbank Zurich Cantonalbank boosted its stake in shares of Newfield Exploration by 21.2% during the 2nd quarter.

The system debuted with the C5 Aircross and aims to give the more affordable C4 Cactus a buttery smooth and comfortable ride through a set of secondary hydraulic dampers in each corner which replace the conventional bumpstops at both ends. Last, but not least, the new Cactus has thicker glass in the windows, as well as more sound-deadening material to try and make the vehicle more refined. There are 1.2-litre, three-cylinder petrol engines in 81, 108 and new 138bhp power outputs, along with 99 and 118bhp versions of a four-cylinder, 1.6-litre diesel.

The C4 Cactus will be the first model to feature this new tech, although it's more than likely it'll become a feature on other Citroens too. The latter of the two diesel engines will only be available with an automatic gearbox and will arrive in the second half of 2018.

Final UK prices and specifications have yet to be released, although we should see the vehicle on UK roads early next year.
