Citroen pic via AFPPARIS, Oct 28 - When Citroën first unveiled the concept version of the C4 Cactus at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2013, it could have been seen as just another quirky design exercise from a manufacturer not exactly averse to unique styling.

But we loved it, as more for the fact it dared to be different - and saw Citroen doing what Citroen has always done best - than that it was a great vehicle.

The front end of the Cactus now looks like the new C3, gets new lights and chrome and less of the black plastic look.

The biggest visual change is a relative lack of exterior cladding.

The adorable - and also fully polarizing - Citroen C4 Cactus has been around since 2014, but after just four years on the market the company is making a 180-degrees turn with the facelift that looks more substantial than even new generations at some competing brands.

The most significant change for the C4 Cactus however is in the suspension department, where Citroen has employed its new "Progressive Hydraulic Cushion" system which promises deliver a "magic carpet ride" - something Citroen was famed for in the past.

Citroen has also confirmed a host of extra tech will be available too including an automatic emergency braking system, a driver monitor - that also features a coffee break alert - as well as traffic sign recognition and blind spot monitoring systems. The smallest engines will be the three-cylinder 1.2-litre petrols of 81 and 108 horsepower, which are now joined by a more powerful 138 horsepower unit.

The interior remains largely unchanged, although things do move a little more upscale in the cabin thanks to better sound insulation and seats that are now more comfortable than they were previously.

The significantly revamped C4 Cactus (pictured below) goes into production later this year and right-hand-drive cars arrive in March or April 2018.

An all-new replacement for the C4 hatchback won't be ready up until 2020 or 2021 while the new C4 Cactus will be launched in Europe at the start of 2018.
