Citroën C4 Cactus takes on the Klein Karoo roads no problem

The DECO team knew they were in for the ride of their lives at first glance. The Citroën C4 Cactus has a bold personality and unusual features that make you look twice. From the stylish roof bars and the high-tech front lighting system, the exterior of the car is an introduction to the luxury that awaits you inside.

Of course, the first thing that catches everyone’s eye is the quirky Airbump® panels on the side of the vehicle (and did we mention the slim headlights built into them?). The Citroën team explains that the soft skin of the exclusive Airbump® protects your car against everyday bumps and dents. Not requiring any special care, it is made up of a collection of air capsules fitted under a soft TPU skin. Customize your C4 Cactus Airbump® in either Black Standard, Dune, Chocolate and Stone Grey.

Why do you protect your smartphone but not your car? – Mark Lloyd, Lead Designer C4 Cactus

Due to the latest generation PureTech petrol engines, this vehicle offers reduced CO2 and reduced fuel consumption. En route to shoot an off-the-grid home in the Klein Karoo, DECO couldn’t have chosen a better fit.


Now let’s step inside and see what the DECO team enjoyed on their Klein Karoo trip. If your lounge were a car, it would be this car. Tailored for ‘onboard comfort’ the seats are wide and successfully offer a sofa-effect allowing you to literally sit back and relax. In terms of storage, every passenger has a compartment to meet their needs and if you need anything else it is most likely one click (or finger tap) away on the 7” touch screen that will access everything.

100% digital, 100% intuitive and 100% comfortable, it was difficult for the DECO team to say farewell to the Citroën C4 Cactus after the Klein Karoo roadtrip.
