CitroŽn C4 Cactus voted 'Car of the Year' by Diesel Car

CitroŽn's C4 Cactus has been named Diesel Car Magazine's 'Car of the Year' 2015.

The award recognises the many bold and distinctive attributes of the CitroŽn brand's latest model, which won the overall prize as well as being crowned this year's 'Best Crossover'.

Meanwhile, the latest-generation CitroŽn Grand C4 Picasso retained the 'Best MPV' title, having won it for the first time last year.

The C4 Cactus adds the two top Diesel Car Magazine honours to its impressive list of UK industry awards received since its launch in September last year, alongside 'Small Hatchback of the Year' in the UK Car of the Year Awards and the highly sought-after title of BBC Top Gear Magazine 'Hatchback of the Year' title.

Ian Robertson, editor and publisher of Diesel Car Magazine, said: "The new C4 Cactus represents CitroŽn doing what it does best  a funky, urban-friendly vehicle that is taking the sector by storm."

He added: "I am really proud to be able to announce that the CitroŽn C4 Cactus wins the title of Diesel Car Magazine's Car of the Year 2015. It's the perfect car for the times. It's affordable, practical and incredibly comfortable, all wrapped up with a striking design that can be highly personalised."

Alongside the three wins for the New C4 Cactus and the Grand C4 Picasso, the Diesel Car Magazine Car of the Year Awards judges also highly commended C3 Picasso in the 'Compact MPV' category.
