There are very few things in life that I hate so much I could vomit at the sight of. If I had to name three, they would be pineapple on pizza, watching someone drink a glass of milk, and the other would be the Citroen C4 Cactus.
I absolutely hate the Citroen Cactus. I do not understand why someone decided to give a car half a quilted jacket. I’ve never driven one, and I’ve never been a passenger in one so I cannot make any comments on the drive of the car. But why on earth would anyone look at that car and think ‘YEP, that’s the car for me… look at it! What a bloody treat.’ It doesn’t make sense to me. For anyone who does not know what the Citroen Cactus looks like, they are the cars with the black bubbles on the doors. You definitely would have seen one, lurking on the streets. Unfortunately, they’re everywhere.
I don’t understand why it looks like that… So I googled it. I typed into my search bar ‘Citroen Cactus. Why.’ I found Auto Express’ long term test review, and apparently it’s a lovely car to drive. But I didn’t particularly care for that, and there are plenty of other cars that are great to drive, that don’t look as if they have some sort of skin disease.
According to this feature, the black mess on the doors of the car are air bumps and are there to protect the car from things like carelessly opened doors or run away trolleys. How about be more careful and aware of your surroundings so you can drive a car that won’t make me want to pull my own arm off just so I have something to throw through your windscreen. I know everyone has different opinions on cars, and I’m sure some people don’t like the look of the Aston Martin DB5 which in my opinion is the most beautiful car ever made. But SURELY no one thinks the Cactus is attractive.
If you own a Citroen Cactus and are reading this, please get in contact with me so I can hear your justification. Because I just cannot see why you would want to buy a car that looks as bad as that.
