Few other cars arouse our curiousity as much the C4 Cactus. But could it be just an indulgent showcase of design flair from the French automaker?

If Citroen's latest crossover isn't a candid showcase of the marque's design flair, out-of-box thinking and individualistic approach to carmaking, we don't know what it is.

At a time when its 'breed' is the 'talk of the town', the crossover arrives with an even edgier and attention-grabbing nameplate - C4 Cactus.

No larger than a compact hatchback, the Cactus' petite dimensions and short overhangs make it effortless to drive in our concrete jungle

But with the Nissan Juke arriving way back in 2011, and competitors such as the Peugeot 2008 and the Renault Captur entering the scene last year, the Cactus may have arrived slightly late for the 'party'.

Exterior

As if to make up for its late appearance, the Cactus has a unique styling that will easily make it stand out. Arguably, it is also the most eye-catching among its aforementioned rivals.

With its rugged looks and futuristic design, we will not be exaggerating if we say the Cactus looks fit for a scene in Starship Troopers or even the latest sequel to Jurassic Park

Part credit has to go to the 'bumps' located around the body. While short of withstanding bullets or dinosaur bites, they (what Citroen calls Airbumps) protect the bodywork against dents and dings by 'rebouncing' upon impact. You can think of it as a layer of bubble wrap around the body.

At 975kg, the C4 Cactus is at least 200kg lighter than the 2008 and the Captur
