For some time now, the convertible edition of the Cactus crossover has been a mere imagination to many. This is no longer the case because the Citroen Cactus M Concept made its grand debut during this year’s Frankfurt Auto Show that was held in September 2015. The car made an impressive debut as it proved that it can convert within the split of a second. Below are more details about this car that was inspired by the 1968 Mehari. Here is what we know so far about 2019 Citroen Cactus M.
This 2019 Citroen Cactus M concept features a topless beach cruiser that is elegant and luxurious that replaces the 2CV-based Citroen Mehari. Its windshield is more upright, the car has a ride height that is notably increased and it has a blunt nose. The frontage of the model wears a newly designed bumper with tow hooks. The lighting system in the model operates using LED systems. At the back side, the light clusters that are used are drawn from the 2014 super frugal C4 Cactus Airflow concept. A combination of grip control and tall and narrow tyres allows the car to be more agile. This makes it cope relatively well in different kinds of terrains, especially the rough ones. An outstanding feature about the model is that it can be used as a bivouac for two persons for a revamped outdoor experience. In this mode, the users can choose to sleep without cover or under cover through the inflation button that turns the top into a tent.
One of the best interior aspects of the 2019 Citroen Cactus M is that it is completely water proof. The peel back the rubber floor mats and plug holes make the water escape the foot wells. The seats and the dashboard in this model are also made of the same material (neoprene) as the wet suits. The dashboard’s, however, has floral pattern. 2 surfboards that are covered using wooden veneers can be lashed to the windscreen. This 2 door car concept is designed such that the rear row passengers have to climb over to reach their seats. The doors are made of molded plastic and have visible hinges. User safety is assured by the manufacturer who will install the latest and most suitable security gear. Additionally, the infotainment features will also be highly modernized so as to meet the needs of the contemporary world.
