2017 Citroen C4 Cactus Review & Redesign – The 2017 Citroen C4 Cactus is set to appeal to a great deal much more buyers than before in Australia, with the news that the French brand is including a conventional six-speed automatic gearbox to its petrol-powered providing. The information is out of the UK, and as this kind of the new six-speed auto version of the C4 Cactus will be offered in right-hand drive. We have contacted Citroen‘s Australian team to find out if that will be the situation in this article, but we’d believe that – offered the brand makes it very clear that a petrol auto would be the mass seller – it will arrive right here in the arriving months.
The new six-speed automatic (EAT6) gearbox will be mated to a 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, producing 81kW of power and 205Nm of torque – the same engine installed in the petrol five-speed standard model. Fuel use is supposed to be started at 5.1 liters for each 100 kilometers, and the little turbo triple has engine stop-start to assist it to reach that fuel use. We’d assume the automatic to hold a premium above the petrol manual that currently types the schedule of the range. It’s listed at $25,990 plus on-road costs. The diesel semi-automatic (a gearbox that you’ll both enjoy or dislike!) is listed at $28,990 plus costs. UPDATE: Citroen has confirmed the C4 Cactus petrol automatic will be offered in Melbourne. See base of write-up for information.
Citroen Modern Australia has confirmed the C4 Cactus petrol automatic model will be readily available locally in the second half of 2017, though prices are yet to be uncovered. If the just recently introduced (and related) 2017 Peugeot 2008 range is any sign, this could also spell the end of the diesel-powered Cactus outfitted with the six-speed automated manual transmission, though this hasn’t been proved. Remain tuned for more information closer to the new model’s launch later this year.
