The distinctive Citroën C4 Cactus has been named overall winner in the Carbuyer Car of the Year Awards 2015. The awards are judged by carbuyer.co.uk’s panel of motoring journalists and road testers, with the aim of providing the UK’s new car buyers with expert advice, guidance and key facts about the best cars on sale in the UK.
The C4 Cactus was chosen as ‘Car of the Year’ from a list of 20 category winners and the trophy was presented to Linda Jackson, CEO of the Citroën brand, by Carbuyer’s Stuart Milne and Ginny Buckley at the Geneva Motor Show last week. The Carbuyer panel also awarded the C4 Cactus with the category title of ‘Best Economical Car’, whilst the Citroën Grand C4 Picasso claimed the prize for ‘Best Seven-Seater’.

The judging panel for the Carbuyer Car of the Year Awards includes a group of highly experienced journalists and road testers who have bought, driven and owned thousands of new cars between them. They identified the C4 Cactus as being a genuine game-changer in the UK market, thanks to its appealing blend of “striking looks”, interior space, practicality and fuel economy.
Stuart Milne, Editor of Carbuyer, said; “The Citroën C4 Cactus was the standout car for Carbuyer this year. It is the product of some very clever thinking, leading to a number of industry firsts and represents Citroën at its brilliant, quirky best. Those striking looks hide an interior that’s wonderfully spacious and exceptionally comfortable on the move. And who can argue with the promise of more than 90mpg from the most efficient models?”
