    Default Missed opportunity for Citroen again....

    I see that the first Cactus for sale is now priced at.....$39600 on carsales.
    How ridiculous. It was earmarked from $26000 which would have made it very competitive and successful,

    It will be another missed opportunity for Citroen in Australia to become popular, because some believe they will make a killing on something very different and appealing....

    They were exclusive autos. The manuals were unpriced. It shows yet again (after the C4) that Sime Darby are determined to eliminate the brand. It's easier to sell a handful to rusted on Citroenistes than to meet any sensible larger market. I'm starting to wonder why they have any dealers at all.

    Why wouldn't you buy a C5 at those prices?

    I was in Europe last month and the Cactus is selling like hotcakes - they are literally everywhere!

    Why, because they are cheap and cool!

    The ones advertised online are top spec models. Wait for the lower grades to be released for indicative pricing : )
