It needs a padded sell
Airbumps on doors don’t soften the price blow of the styledriven Cactus
CITROEN’S Cactus is designed to stand out in a crowd. With side panel inserts that resemble a giant pharmaceutical blister pack, it turns heads wherever it goes. The glances are generally more quizzical than admiring but it sure attracts attention.
Citroen calls the panels airbumps and claims they resist dents from errant shopping trolleys. Those who like them think that’s cute and clever; those who don’t think it’s a high price to pay to guard against a potential panel-beating bill.
