Whichever Cactus you go for, you’ll get a smart-looking 7in touchscreen media system, which includes a DAB radio and an aux-in socket. It’s easy to use, but it isn’t the most response set-up we’ve come across. In particular, the buttons on the surrounding black bezel can require a few prods before they respond, which can make the system tricky to use if you simply want to change the display while driving. As well as media and heating functions, the touchscreen also offers trip computer readouts and the likes of an integrated calculator, which is quite neat.
Move up to the mid-spec Feel version and you’ll get Bluetooth, which pairs with your phone easily and quickly, while flagship Flair models feature an upgraded stereo and sat-nav. The sat-nav is a decent system, with a clear display and sensible instructions. You can opt for this upgrade on the Feel trim level (it’s not available on the entry-level version), and we’d recommend it because it’s not particularly expensive.
