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.
