Citroen is to premiere its new concept car at the upcoming Frankfurt International Motor Show. Named the Citroen Cactus M, it draws inspiration from the French automobile manufacturer's popular Méhari, which was produced over a 20-year period between 1968 and 1988.
Named the Citroen Cactus M, the concept boasts a bright, upbeat personality and is dressed in a bright turquoise, which compliments the go-everywhere style of the Cactus M.
With an open cabin, and rear-seats accessible by steps to the sides of the vehicle, the concept is truly an outdoorsy car, fabricated with materials inspired by outdoor activities. The seats, for example, are designed to resemble wetsuits, upholstered in a brightly coloured neoprene waterproof fabric.
Continuing the surf-theme is the rear arch, which allows passengers to carry all their watersports equipment, such as surfboards and wakeboards.
A grip control function on the adventurous utility vehicle optimises traction on even the toughest of terrains. For the adventurers who prefer taking longer, overnight trips, the seats in the cabin can be folded into a 'couchette', and the roof becomes a tent.
Powered by a petrol drivetrain and boasting the latest-generation automatic gearbox, the Ciroen Cactus M presents fuel consumption of 58.9mpg, and CO2 emissions of 110g/km.
On-board technologies mirror those found on the C4 Cactus. These helpful devices include the central Touch Drive interface and the Easy Push gearbox system.
