Restyled in Europe in October, the Citroën C4 Cactus national will be almost equal to the European model. Around here, what changes is the design of the rear bumper. Another change, is the rear door glass that will not be fixed and will have conventional operation. Moreover, our report found that the national C4 Cactus will be very close to the European in the external visual.

At the front, the Citroën C4 Cactus won double optical set, the main is narrower, inspired by the new generation of the European Aircross C3. The double chevron is highlighted in the grid that matches the main headlights. The bumper will have air intake divided into two parts for the nameplate housing.

Already on the back, the Citroën C4 Cactus national will have new more robust bumper. The lanterns become horizontal and gain extension in the trunk lid. The rear taillamps with three-dimensional effect.

The Citroën C4 Cactus will have two engine options in Brazil as our report anticipated in July. The SUV will be equipped with the 1.6 16V FlexStart engine and also the 1.6 16V THP. The aspirated power unit can be coupled to the five-speed manual and the six-speed automatic. The turbocharger will work only with the six-speed automatic transmission
