What a pleasure it is, when they leave out most of the little chrome frames. And those that are left, have been much more discreetly worked in. Even those who are not SUV-fans, have to pay their respect to this concept. Now, one can visualise, just what was meant with the C4 Cactus. Its accentuations were too weak. The focus was too much on saving money. Have a look at the second video, you'll see that here, it's all about comfortable travelling on all types of road surfaces.



This time we won't be dissecting the hybrid-drive, in this case as a petrol driven car. This time we'll be concentrating on the styling. We'll start with the wheels, which is unusual enough. These rims, they really look good. Indeed, whether one can take on a long journey with these rough terrain tyres, will have to be tested. Tyres by the way, which are from Continental, where Michelin has expanded so much and has strong ties with the PSA company. Our compliments.

So it goes on. As we said no chrome around the nose. They have held on to the daytime driving lights above the headlamps. They however, are each four fold, indeed, they're so narrow, that the more important headlamps are given a considerable height. That the theme on the front end is carried over to the rear, is well known. To also use it on the sides instead of baroque beading, is something new.

Does a touch screen behind the steering wheel make sense?

Admittedly, whether these are actually air intakes, where they lead to and if they even have a function, is not known. It also appears, that the bodywork bulges outwards so much, that it would be the first part to make contact in the event of an light collision. Those who don't notice the butt-joints, could mistake the car for being a two-door. If the rear-doors are opened from the front, one could hold the door-handles together. Indeed, considering a width of 2,1 meters, that wouldn't be very practical.



The interior is not particularly spacious, but it does look quite comfortable. In addition, there are small speakers built into the headrests. Would this, as an optional extra for the driver's side, even be allowed? Indeed the vehicle is a high-built construction. The engine compartment reaches right up to chest-height of shorter people. Accordingly, the lower edge of the window is just as high up. Despite its stately height of 1,8 meters, there's not much left for actual window space. To finish off, let's give a word of praise for the rear lights. At last, an almost perfect tunnel design. 04/15

Woe betide, if the design is watered down until 2019 ...
