Citroen C4 Cactus scoops award for 'Production Car of the Year'

4th March 2015

The striking design and unique styling of the New Citroën C4 Cactus has been rewarded by 'Car Design News', naming it their 'Production Car of the Year'. Judged by a panel of leading design experts and industry professionals, the C4 perfectly embodies key innovation and technology.

Editor of Car Design News, Owen Ready, said; “Every so often, a product appears that manages to side-step the usual product replacement-driven development cycles and rigid marketing requirements. A design that is both against the grain, yet perfectly adapted. Citroën's C4 Cactus is a prime example of this rarefied breed, a fact illustrated by its dominance in this year's judging process."

Bek Hassan, Citroën's Brand Director in the UK, said; “It's fantastic that C4 Cactus has been honoured by Car Design News. This award is presented by professionals who design cars themselves, so it speaks volumes about the creative talent we have working for the brand. I would like to congratulate Alexandre Malval, the Head of Citroën Design, and his team on their success. The C4 Cactus embodies the positioning of the Citroën brand, so it's a ringing endorsement for our future design strategy."

Since its initial launch in September 2014, the C4 Cactus has been honoured with a number of industry awards including the coveted BBC TopGear Magazine 'Hatchback of the Year' accolade.
