With you, Mehari XXI Century, Cactus homeless C4 It Hot : Citroën Cactus M

So that would mean Citroen Mehari Century XXI . The Cactus Citroen M , as its name suggests, it is a derivative of the famous and quirky Citroen C4 Cactus, transformed for the occasion in an unusual crossover convertible or rather, homeless . And how have achieved this transformation? For a little closer to the concept of the original Mehari, without detracting modernity requiring any prototype, this Citroën Cactus M comes with two large side doors, four seats and, in the absence of roof, two large arches on the front protection and rear. Maximum simplicity. No more.

The Citroen Cactus M also enjoys a camper aspect of crossover , its production counterpart. Starting with the fact that their suspensions have been lifted and larger diameter wheels (19 “) are used with very narrow tires. The defenses have also been reinforced with new plastic guards, transferring some of the features that we saw in the Citroën Aircross Concept introduced this year.

plastic, like its predecessor, is the main protagonist of this body Citroën Cactus M . For simplicity, economy, resistance elements (salt, water, etc.) and weight reduction, a figure which certainly do not know.

Although it has been designed to be enjoyed outdoors, would have a tarpaulin to avoid problems if we are surprised by a downpour.

It’s obvious that decoration also strengthens this summer look of a vehicle that would be very focused on their use in days off, in vacation days. The clearest example is the celestial tone of your body, or flowered upholstery upholstery covering the seats and dashboard.

Among the smart solutions that have been used designing this car, access to the trunk from the outside , the style pickup. On the other hand, in the absence of ceiling to use would have blackened designed to hold two surfboards .

Although M enjoying two large side doors, plastic of course, the Citroen Citroen Cactus confesses that have lowered the upper frame so that passengers can be accommodated jumped inside. Who does not ever has or has not wanted to do it in a convertible?

His canvas roof can also transform it into a makeshift tent, which is adjusted by columns that will swell with a compressor included in the vehicle.

Although we do not see in these photos, Citroen says in the false bottom of his trunk a canvas roof hides we could adjust, by hand, of course, if we are surprised by a downpour. The roof would be installed thanks to inflatable pillars – so they say – that would be adjusted by a compressor equipped for the car itself. The same system also would serve to improvise a small camp, with space for two people, and folding down the seats to serve us as bed rest.

The Citroen Cactus M still maintain front wheel drive Citroen C4 Cactus, but assisted with a system to improve adhesion on slippery ground – based traction control settings – called Grip Control . The engine of this prototype is a PureTech 110 hp , associated with an automatic six relations.

Will we see one day on the street? Certainly we doubt it. Interest Citroen to launch new body resulting in the Citroen C4 Cactus is more than evident. In addition, Citroen has dropped by more than one occasion how interesting it would launch a new Mehari The Mehari Century XXI . But we fear that this will only be in what you see, in a curious prototype that shows how far the design of C4 Cactus.
