    Should sack their Australian marketing person. Who would bring a car to Australia called a CACTUS.

    You can sell then quickly by pulling off the badges and relabelling as a Hiunday i25.
    Car buyers would not know difference from a Hyundai i25

    Psst, the marketing person who brought this batch of Cacti to Australia has already been sacked.

    If I was stuck with that many cars I’d try and flog them discounted to a rental group or start up a franchise/rental/uber/sharing scenario where the cars are then getting plenty of exposure to the public who then after trotting around in them ( and getting a dose of quiet sales technique) might go ‘I want one, they are neat’ and then flog off the new ones with the updated suspension, hey they’re even better than the one you rented etc. Andre would agree for sure!

    if each car turned into 4 new sales of Cacti that would be a result in itself?

    its pretty simple shit really.

    Driver/ rental person “ they’re French you know, very chic, French, and they’re so comfortable”
    Passenger Renter “comfortable?”
    other “ comfortable? did I say comfortable? Yes they are extremely comfortable, more comfortable than any other car”

    Based on un-solicited feedback while uBer-ring a Grand-Piano for 11 months being overwhelmingly positive - that would be a Very Good Idea (other brands do it, btw) it's kinda like the Tardis interior gag in Dr Who: waiting for it to dawn on the uninitiated ...

    Hi
    They should be given to the NSW Premier to sell. She thinks her government can sell the idea of a $2.4 billion knockdown and rebuild of 2 perfectly good sports stadiums, to the punters here. Selling those cars should be a cake walk

    The other problem I see here, is that there are plenty of 2017 plated C3 hatches that are priced the same as the 2017 plated C4 Cactus stock!! This just goes to show the problems Citroen Australia are facing with the pricing of it's products.

    The C3 hatch needs to be cheaper and with a manual option and the Cactus needs to hold that pricing of $26,000. Then there is the C3 Aircross! I wonder how they'll price that when it would sit below the Cactus and above the C3 hatch??

    Apparently the current car rides better than most small SUV’s anyway (Kimmo bought one & said it feels the same as his X7 in softness); and if you want a diesel the second series will only come out here as a petrol.

    Default Ninety Five Citroen Cactus cars for sale

    There are now ninety five Citroen Cactus cars listed for sale on Carsales.com.au.

    They are simply too expensive. I bought a Citroen Berlingo back in 2000 for $16,900 when this model was being introduced into Australia and sales boomed. Buyers want value for money.

    I would consider the latest model with the new improved suspension and seats but apparently it will not come to Australia until the end of this year.

    Probably because there 95 earlier model cars to "dispose" of.

    It's like the C4 B7 model. It has a very comfortable ride, plenty of space, and is far nicer to be in than a Golf for example. At first you could get one in the low twenties, like other hatchbacks. Then they went up to around thirty, and they got left. Citroen has got to price cars competitively if it wants to sell them.

    Your opinion may not be shared by other buyers.

    Last year VW sold 15,000 + Golf vehicles. And Citroen sold less than 1500 Cacti.

    I'd suggest you are comparing cars in a different market segment anyway.

    Or it could be VHS format versus Beta format revisited.

    You missed my point. Few people have made the comparison, partly because of price and poor marketing by Citroen. Note: the C4 B7, not the Cactus.

    Those who have used both cars regularly around town (excluding the GTI model), and I know four as well as myself, prefer the C4. It has a far better ride, and is roomier.

    Apologies for my oversight. I thought we were discussing sales of the Cactus in this thread.

    Default New Cactus will make Old one, well, Cactus....

    Sounds like we should wait for the new one. I hope they bring out a manual here (another reason to buy the current one?) Trouble is the lack of rear roll down windows remains. A C5 Crossover hopefully will follow soon.

    I haven't seen a rear window rolled down for ages - years even. Not since AC became universal.

    That cactus figure is nearly what Citroen is selling per year here in Australia.

    Dogs and children LOVE open rear windows....even short legged dogs that struggle to get their noses out !

    They've sold them to some private importer
    Are you absolutely sure of that ?

    It is standard business practice for stock of high cost items to be sold on consignment. Ie the manufacturer bears the cost of the stock until it is sold at a retail level.

    I have no in knowledge of how Inchcape handles stock costs, especially since it is stock previously "owned" and imported by an ex distributor.

    The Cactus service manual must have put people off.

    Having dogs in cars is a big time put off for nearly everyone. Most drivers I know don't want open windows with children in the back. So rear window winders are rarely used.

    Opening one rear window in my Koleos will cause serious head explosion pain.
    I have heard LF oscillations and felt discomfort in other cars, but this Suv takes it to a whole other level. Its like some crowd control weapon Renault have unleashed on its owners.
    On the plus side...it works real good on the Mrs when she starts nagging me for for taking corners to fast!!

    Its is 70 years since the 2CV first hit the market. They were sold for over 40 years. They always had fixed rear windows. They never had aircon. They did however have a full length roll back roof. Enough to blow the spots off a Dalmatian.

    I feel the future of motor cars would be best served by turning electric refrigerators into vehicles. A wheel at each corner, none steerable. They would tick all the boxes - electric, no pedals to depress, no steering wheel to twiddle, cold, full length sunroof and you could play with the mobile phone all day because there is nothing else to do with your hands.

    John.
