Citroën C4 Cactus is one of the models most original that has come to the market in the last few years. The SUV, the French firm has been a breath of fresh air for the company, and even though their sales have been steadily losing a bit of bellows, Citroën did not stop working to improve your positioning beyond where it is sold. Proof of this is that the elements you have to customize it to taste of the consumer have not stopped growing since his arrival.
This curious model, which is manufactured in exclusive for everyone at the factory of the Group PSA (Peugeot, Citroën and DS) have in Villaverde (Madrid) is sold in many international markets. One of the countries to which it reaches, although it may seem incredible, it is Australia and on the big island account with a acceptance more than decent. However, since the signing have believed it necessary to strengthen the range model with a new version automatically so that customers are attracted by the C4 Cactus.
In the antipodes is sold with the same range mechanical in Spain or the rest of Europe, however, as it happens in the markets in the anglo-saxon motorists in the area prefer to drive automatic cars. By now, the only automatic gearbox that was available to the Cactus in the country was the ETG6 that is associated exclusively to the mechanical 1.6 BlueHDi 99 hp. However, in order to strengthen the range with another box of auto-cut in the firm have decided to to launch a-type CVT (torque converter) with six speeds.
The transmission will have six speeds and will be associated with the engine 1.2 PureTech tricilíndrica with 110 bhp of power and 205 Nm of torque. With it, the C4 Cactus goes to approve a average consumption of only 5.1 liters to 100 kilometres, that is to say, only 4 tenths more than with the manual gearbox of five speeds that are sold today. With it, the SUV French manages to do the 0 to 100 kilometres an hour in 10 seconds, losing in front of the manual about 7 tenths.
