2018 Citroen Cactus welcomes six-speed auto

And diesel-powered Citroen Cactus dropped

We first reported on this back in January, now Citroen dealers in Australia can offer you a Citroen C4 Cactus with a six-speed auto transmission.

The new automatic transmission joins the five-speed manual transmission in the now exclusively 1.2 litre turbo-petrol powered 2018 Citroen C4 Cactus.

While the diesel variant, previously available with a semi-automatic transmission, has now been discontinued in Australia.

2018 Citroen C4 Cactus Pricing:

  • C4 Cactus 1.2 Manual - from $26,990
  • C4 Cactus 1.2 Auto – from $29,690

Citroen tell us the new transmission was designed for fast, smooth gear-changing, and should help increase the appeal of the C4 Cactus in terms of comfort and driveability…

Set up for driving comfort and smooth gear-changing, the gearbox also features two specific programmes, accessible from the controls in front of the gear lever: a ‘Sport programme for a more dynamic driving style and a ‘Snow’ program for easier start-up and increased traction in low-grip conditions.

Citroen C4 Cactus sales in Australia have continued to remain disappointing through 2017.

In July, VFACTS data shows local sales dropped to just 7 cars last month, while across the first seven months of the year C4 Cactus sales totaled only 46 cars, down from 129 in the same period last year.
