NEW CITROËN C4 CACTUS WINS APMP SMALL SUV OF THE YEAR 2015
Citroën’s exciting New C4 Cactus has been awarded the title of Small SUV of the Year 2015 by the Association of Professional Motoring Press (APMP) at their first official awards ceremony which took place at Powerscourt Hotel & Resort in Wicklow earlier this week.
The APMP Awards are adjudicated on by motoring journalists from over 45 publications with members from national newspapers, radio, TV and online publications. Shane O’Donoghue said, “The C4 Cactus stands apart with incredible comfort, efficiency, space and a highly unique appearance inside and out. Bravo!”, while Paul Keown called the C4 Cactus a “real head turner”. Dave Humphreys, commented that it “is one of the freshest designs to ever come to the small SUV segment”.
Commenting at the awards ceremony, Michael Sheridan, Chairperson, APMP, remarked, “The Cactus is a beautiful piece of design at a price that's right.”
The New Citroën C4 Cactus is a bold response to the changing needs and priorities of today’s car owners, offering a real alternative to the traditional compact hatchback, with a fresh and distinctive approach. Visually striking, the New C4 Cactus stands out in the competitive C segment with its concept car looks, crossover styling cues and a broad range of customisation options.
Speaking on the awards night, Frédéric Soulier, Managing Director, Citroën Motors Ireland, said, “We are very proud that just two weeks following the Irish launch the C4 Cactus has picked up its first official Irish award. The new C4 Cactus is a very exciting and innovative addition to our award-winning range and this accolade from the members of the APMP is a tribute to the bold choices made by Citroën’s design team. Together with our Dealer Network we look forward to welcoming customers to our showrooms to experience the New C4 Cactus”.
