I'm sorry but that is the 2015 Pontiac Aztek. I find it horrible.

I love it inside and out, specially the rear which reminds me strongly to the old Peugeot 205. This is what a Citroen is supposed to be.

I am very positively surprised. This looks like a concept car, and even though it is not beautiful in a classic way, it's a good thing. It looks futuristic and not to everyone's taste, and I agree, that's what a Citroen should be. To some extent, it's also what a modern Renault R4 should be.

The interior looks great, modern, minimalistic, and it's cool how they made it look like it has a old school bench seat. The fixed rear window is probably a bit strange, but then again, no one seems to care on the DS4, where it's the same.

Btw. DS range, I'm kind of surprised that this is not sold with a DS badge, usually all their futuristic or stand out models are in the DS range, whilst the standard Citroens now tend to be more conservative...

I think they've figured out already that conservative doesn't really sell in some segments (when You're not VW), thus this and the new Picasso are quite wicked. I hope there is still more to come!

Just like the Nissan Juke, which has been a huge success.

I love it....too bad it'll never show up in North America.

The design is unique - but not offensive. Reminds me a lot of the Soul / Cherokee

I thought that Cactus was another designer sub brand of Citroen, like DS, but cheaper and more basic than the C cars, where the DS cars are aimed above the C cars. So the Citroens would be:

Cactus - Cheaper, bright, designer cars
C - Regular cars
DS - Premium designer cars

C4 Cactus would be the first of a new range.

Probably. Though I think their identity might get lost if they get confused up with many sub brands. I know this is usual e.g. in Japan, where Toyotas are sold through various dealerships and supposed to have different character, but in Europe I doubt this would work.
