Citroen C4 Cactus
The C4 Cactus isn't big, and it isn't especially clever. It might just be, however, a gentle revolution in automotive philosophy
If that all sounds rather high-minded, we apologise. But the Cactus - effectively a jacked-up version of Citroen's worthy-but-dull C4 hatch - is something rather different.
Rather than pitching for sportiness and white-knuckle excitement, it instead promises to lower its occupants' collective heartbeat, with minimal instrumentation, a bench seat up front and a soft ride. Sounds blissful.
And it's got weird bubblewrap on the doors. Once you pop, you can't stop.
