In the same context and thanks to the abstract and flexible approach to the design of the interior and the exterior, the weight of C4 Cactus is limited to 925 kg, ie 200 kg less than the familiar C4. Moreover, the efficient versions of C4 Cactus engines will be equipped with new generation standards of Euro 6, gasoline and petroleum engines of  Pure Tech and BlueHDi technology, respectively, which have stop/ start technology. Specifically the available options are expected to include, among others, the three-cylinder 1.2 -liter petrol engine, the turbo 1,6 -liter diesel one and the turbocharged petrol engine, with also 1.6 liters. This means that the carbon dioxide emissions for the petrol versions will start at less than 100 grams / km while on the diesel versions will start at 82 gr/ km, with a consumption rate of 3.1 litres/100 km.

The interior is also based on efficiency and share the same minimalist approach, with a seven-inch touch screen gathering the functions of all kinds of controls. At the same time, its digital center console has every feature you need. A typical sample of the rationale of the design is the rotary gear selector in the versions with automatic transmission ETG combined with paddles on the steering wheel. Another design feature of the cabin is the single front lounge seat. Last but not least, the trunk has a capacity that amounts to 358 liters.
