The Citroen C4 Cactus Rip Curl which is in attendance at the ongoing 2016 Geneva Motor Show is a special edition model which is designed to highlight the car’s outdoorsy appeal. The French automaker has tied up with world famous surfing accessory brand Rip Curl to create the special edition.
The most significant addition is the Grip Control system which is an exclusive feature. With mud and snow tyres, the Grip Control system offers offers increased traction to help moving ahead on difficult surfaces. The system is available with C4 Cactus’ PureTech 110 petrol and BlueHDI 100 diesel engines that are mated to a manual transmission.
The system uses advanced anti-skid function that is incorporated into the ESP and has various modes to adopt to the terrain. The modes can be selected by means of the Grip Control knob located on the centre console.
Visual enhancements come in the form of white mirror caps, white roof rails, brilliant-white vertical front fender decal that is constituted by various geometrical figures and Rip Curl logo. The rear quarter panel too receives a similar deal but in horizontal orientation. It can also house a surf board on top. The quirky crossover also features aluminium grey front and rear protection plates in addition to the Airbump. Five exterior color options are on offer – Olive Brown/Obsidian Black/Aden Red/Aluminium Grey and Mother-of-Pearl White.
The interior of the Citroen C4 Cactus Rip Curl gets contrasting Pulp Orange accents and Micra Grey seat fabric. Infotainment functions are handled by a 7-inch touchscreen tablet.
