26. CITROEN C4CACTUS
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.
