Car Design News is a leading resource for automotive design industry professionals. Since 1999, it has provided invaluable information, advice and insights to students and design directors alike, thanks to its network of writers and industry analysts.
Car Design News’ primary presence is online, allowing it to deliver the latest news, reviews and opinions to the design community.
The Car Design News awards are independent and the judges chose their top three production cars from 12 contenders.
Editor Owen Ready, said: “Every so often, a product appears that manages to side-step the usual product replacement-driven development cycles and rigid marketing requirements.
“A design that is both against the grain, yet perfectly adapted. Citroën’s C4 Cactus is a prime example of this rarefied breed, a fact illustrated by its dominance in this year’s judging process.”
Bek Hassan, Citroën’s brand director in the UK, said it was fantastic that C4 Cactus had been honoured by Car Design News, because the award is presented by professionals who design cars themselves.
“It speaks volumes about the creative talent we have working for the brand,” he said.
