Citroën C4 Cactus has won the "2015 World Car Design of the Year" award, an award recognising the creativity and the courage of Citroën's design.

Announced as part of the 2015 New York International Motor Show, the jury of the “World Car of the Year Awards” said the car that stood out over the course of the year, thanks to a design that challenges the established norms and embodies a bold and innovative style.

With its audacious stylistic statements and a design that merges form with function, C4 Cactus succeeded in winning the most votes.
Alexandre Malval, Citroën’s Style Director, had the honour of receiving the “2015 World Car Design of the Year” award for C4 Cactus at the New York International Motor Show.

“Each year, the “World Car of the Year” jury awards this prize to the new car with the most innovative design that challenges the conventional codes,” said Malval.

“C4 Cactus is a cool, optimistic and original car, with a unique personality, that offers a genuine alternative to conventional saloons,

“C4 Cactus is designed to reconcile practicality and a cool look. Its pure, smooth expanses are punctuated by graphical features that all serve a purpose, like the Airbump® or the light signature. ” said Malval.

Citroën C4 Cactus has joined a list of illustrious prize-winners, which in recent years has included the BMW i3, the Jaguar F-Type, the Range Rover Evoque and the Aston Martin Rapide. And this was not Citroën’s first success in the 11 year-old “World Car of the Year” competition.
