What used Citroën C4 Cactus hatchback will I get for my budget?
The good news is you can pick up a good C4 Cactus for around £5000, although it'll be an early car with high mileage. If you increase your budget to around the £6500 mark, you’ll find plenty of reasonably low-mileage 2015 cars with a full history. Between £7500 and £8000 will find you a car from 2017 in all trims and with any engine you fancy. Between £9000 and £10,000 should get a 2018 car with a low mileage from a franchised dealer, while £11,500 will get you into a facelifted 2019 1.2 Puretech 110 Feel with delivery mileage.

How much does it cost to run a Citroën C4 Cactus hatchback?
The most economical engine by a mile is the 1.6-litre diesel, which returns a claimed average figure of 78.5mpg and CO2 emissions of just 95g/km. The later 1.5-litre diesel was certified on the new WLTP test, so it seems to get worse economy, at 70.6mpg, but this figure will be more realistic. The turbocharged petrol Puretech 110 returns 65.7mpg and 100g/km of CO2 emissions. In post-facelift cars, it's 61.4mpg for the Puretech 110 and 56.5mpg for the Puretech 130.
Road tax for cars registered before 1 April 2017 will be charged depending on the amount of CO2 it officially emits, while any model registered after that date will pay a flat rate. To find out more about the current road tax costs, click here.
Insurance costs are reasonable, ranging from group 9 to group 19 for the top-spec diesel models. You can opt for a fixed-price servicing once your C4 Cactus is more than three years old; a minor service costs £179 and a major service costs £299.
