Test Drive Tomorrow

Post by Jbrose » Fri Mar 29, 2019 5:46 pm

Hi

I am going for a test drive tomorrow, is the car good for dogs? Can you fit a standard mountain bike in the back with seats down?

Thanks

This is my personal opinion and findings.

I was upset to say goodbye to my Xsara Picasso, the Cactus having a much narrower tailgate isn't that practical for getting larger items in and out where the Picasso could accommodate everything. Fitting my standard bike rack was pretty impossible as the hatch back doors construction isn't bike rack friendly and fastening straps underneath the car is hopeless.

My dog(s)

The Bichon prefers the front seat in the Cactus because it offers him a better view and he likes the ventilation. The Chihuahua wants to sit on my knee which stops us from going anywhere.

Other than that, the diesel version offers good fuel economy, good road holding, very nippy and reliable except issues with the A/C.

Thank you...

I have put a deposit down :) exciting

I was thinking about putting the bike 🚲 in the boot. I assume it is big enough based on this review on YouTube
