It’s worth noting, for posterity’s sake, a vital Wheels24 component on which the portal prides itself - slick headlines.

With the introduction of the C4 Cactus, an all-new model from French automaker Citroën, this week the thorny issue of a suitable prickly blurb headline came easily to the writer without being ‘smutty’ – and with a 100% South African connotation for good measure.

OK, enough frivolity for this very short working week (thanks to two public holidays) during which I made a lightning trip to Gauteng to evaluate Citroën’s very different newcomer to SA, a vehicle that proved memorable and, not to make too fine a point(!), I’m glad I didn’t miss - it could well prove to be the surprise SUV (sport utility vehicle) package for 2015.
