The Citroen’s C4 Cactus is perhaps one of the “funkiest” cars to be unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show this week, both in name and form including its redesigned interior that features push buttons for drive and reverse, to it raised digital speedometer and odometer which sit on the dashboard instead of being part of it. It also features rubberized door panels (to protect the car from being scratched) as well as a glove compartment that opens from the top.

While this latest version may intrigue visitors to the Show, it remains to be seen whether it will also catch the eye of consumers, or whether the French automaker, (a division of PSA Peugeot) has gotten “too creative” with its new design.

For those wondering why the strange name, according to the company the original Citroën C-Cactus, which debuted at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show was given the moniker as a means of emphasizing its “low consumption of resources much like the cactus plant,” employing a “more fuel-economic diesel engine and hybrid HDi drivetrain capable of 69 mpg.”
