Citroen's funky C4 Cactus small hatch will go on sale in the first quarter of next year as an accompaniment to the established Citroen C4, with petrol manual and diesel automatic powertrains to be offered.

The 1.2 litre Cactus petrol will be the price leader (expect it to sit in the mid-$20k region), though with just 81kW of power, 205Nm of torque and a five-speed manual, its appeal to buyers may be limited.

Instead, more customers may prefer to opt for the 68kW/230Nm 1.6 litre diesel, which will land with a six-speed automated manual. Expect a pricetag around the C4 hatch's $29,990 base price for that one.

An Australian launch was originally slated for early 2015, but supply constraints and Australian child-seat restraint requirements conspired to push that day out to the start of next year.

As such, Australian-delivered Cactii will feature a 60/40 split-fold rear seatback, rather than the single-piece bench seat offered in Europe.

When it lands, the uniquely-styled Cactus will face off against the Mazda CX-3 and Honda HR-V in the compact SUV segment, along with its compatriot the Renault Captur.

Full pricing and specification details have yet to be hammered out, but expect more details to be revealed as the launch draws nearer.
