Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Citroën C4 Cactus hatchback?

The C4 Cactus straddles the line between family hatchback and small SUV, so it has many rivals, but it’s the SUV class from which we’ve picked out its three most obvious peers. 

The Nissan Juke was one of the first of the dramatically styled small SUVs. It has an okay infotainment system, but it's off the pace in every other respect, with an uncomfortable ride, a cheap and cramped interior and a poor driving position. It also fared poorly in our most recent Reliability Survey. 

Overview

The Citroën C4 Cactus has its foibles, but it’s an okay choice if you want SUV styling in a good-value, compact package

  • Cheap to run
  • Strong and smooth 1.2 engine
  • Crashy ride on poor roads
  • No steering wheel reach adjustment
  • Fussy touchscreen system
