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 £6500, although that’ll be for an early car with high mileage. If you increase the budget to around the £7000 mark, you’ll find plenty of reasonably low-mileage 2015 cars with a full history. Between £8000 and £10,000 will find you a car from 2016 onward, in all trims and with any engine you fancy. Between £10,000 and £12,000 should buy you a 2017 car with a low mileage from a franchised dealer, while £12,500 will get you into a facelifted 2018 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 BlueHDi diesel, which returns a claimed average figure of 78.5mpg. Its CO2 emissions figure is a very good 95g/km, getting examples registered before April 2017 exemption from road tax. However, we prefer the more refined petrol engines, especially the turbocharged 1.2 Puretech 110, which returns a claimed average consumption of 65.7mpg.
Insurance costs are reasonable, ranging from group 9 to group 19 for the top-spec diesel models. As for servicing, when your C4 Cactus is over three years old you can opt for a fixed price service. An interim service costs £115 and a full service £195.
