PRICE A start­ing sticker of $26,990 is high for the class, and the diesel is even higher from $29,990, but am­ple stan­dard equip­ment in­cludes a re­vers­ing cam­era. TECH­NOL­OGY There’s noth­ing spe­cial in the Cac­tus. Robo­tised man­ual gear­box, which Citroen calls an auto, is old and clunky. PER­FOR­MANCE The Cac­tus is no fire­ball but the base en­gine is perkier than in the Re­nault Captur. Good fuel econ­omy com­pen­sates. DRIV­ING A po­ten­tial class leader with cushy ride, good grip in cor­ners and ex­cel­lent vi­sion. Would be re­lax­ing on the long­est runs. DE­SIGN A strik­ing new­comer that’s all about cus­tomi­sa­tion, from Air­bump pan­els to body and roof colours, plus user-friendly cabin. Quirky still but in a good way.
