It’s just natural – you see a padded car and you automatically want to check out how good those ‘air bumps’, as Citroen prefer to call them, really are. The idea is a good one. Protect the paintwork by effectively bubble wrapping the bodywork.
What has surprised me is how well the Cactus looks. I also didn’t realise how small the Cactus actually is! I’d say it’s just a bit more spacious than one of those Botox Minis. It’s quite tiny.
Also, why on Earth hasn’t somebody thought of an idea this simple before, to cope with the bump and bash of urban living? Maybe they have but I can’t recall such an ingenious idea.
So, if you buy a Cactus, be prepared for a a lot of people poking and prodding your car. I’m not sure it could cope with a full-on road rage attack but air bumps could be the way forward for angry drivers too!
