26. CITROEN C4CACTUS

Auto Express - - Winter Driving Special -

WITH its funky lines and neat cabin touches, the C4 Cac­tus was a breath of fresh air when it en­tered the small crossover class. A new, toned-down model has just been re­vealed, but it doesn’t go on sale un­til 2018.

The ex­ist­ing ver­sion fol­lows other rugged Citroens by re­ly­ing on switch­able trac­tion con­trol and spe­cial tyres to give ex­tra grip in slip­pery con­di­tions. Sim­ply turn the dial on the dash to suit the ter­rain you’re on, and the elec­tron­ics will help you out as best they can. Price range: £16,395-£20,555 Our pick: 1.2 Puretech 110hp Flair En­gine: 1.2-litre 3cyl petrol, 110bhp Trans­mis­sion: 6-spd man, front-wheel drive, plus Grip Con­trol Top speed: 117mph Econ­omy: 65.7mpg CO2: 100g/km
