Great indeed.
Some advertisements connecting between the two (The Cactus ad is fake, but still great idea) :)

Im pondering getting another 2cv for a fun car, I can't get a new car till next Spring and I have always had a fondness for the 2cv, besides I think the pair will look wickedly cool on the drive.

Hi, I'm new to this forum (which is great by the way). I have a danish 2014 Cactus BlueHDi 100 as a daily driver and it has now covered aprox 45000 Km (28000 miles) during the last 1,5 year (completely without any problems). I also think that the advertisment connections between Cactus and 2CV is fake and not historically correct. The past models that are related to Cactus are in my opinion primarily GS/GSA and Visa. 2CV is a much more simple car, but on the other hand also a much more famous car (hence the use of 2CV in the advertisment... nobody today remember GS/GSA and Visa). These models were of course also historically related to 2CV, but they were not as basic in terms of transportation and therefore more similar to Cactus.

I really enjoy my red/black Cactus and it even performs great during wintertimes in Norway with temperatures down to -25/30 °C. I've been to Berlin a couple of times with the car and 150-160 Km/h on the autobahn is a pleasure. So soft and smooth, really like a Citroën should be :)

Our red 2014 C4 Cactus BlueHDi 100 is now sold in favor of a platinum grey 2017 C4 Picasso BlueHDi 120 (Flair/6-speed manual). In total we drove approx. 95000 relatively flawless kilometers with our Cactus and I'm actually very pleased with the car and not least the building quality (the price of the car taken into account).

We chose Citroën once more and so far after approx. 3000 Km we are pleased with the choice. C4 Picasso is a completely different car than Cactus - perhaps more oldschool "Citroën" in many ways. I like both models, but I think that C4 Picasso has more in common with our former C5 than C4 Cactus and newer models such as C3 Aircross. C4 Picasso seems significantly more accomplished and "premium". The division of Citroën vs. DS seems undeniably relatively artificial as long as C4 Picasso remains a Citroën.

Thanks for a nice forum and thank you for all feedback in threads that I contributed to. I still want to follow the forum. It will be exciting to see how the new C4 Cactus will be compared to the old one :)
