Citroën isn't done having fun with the C4 Cactus. It's following last year's Cactus M concept (now officially the E-Mehari) up with another surfy Cactus: the C4 Cactus Rip Curl Special Edition. Designed in collaboration with surf company Rip Curl, the new Cactus features boosted all-terrain traction and styling updates.

Citroën qualifies the Rip Curl as a more radical, adventurous variant of the C4 Cactus crossover. The main piece of equipment making it so is the new Grip Control system, available to drivers via a dashboard selector.

Grip Control gives the FWD Cactus extra traction for on- and off-road driving. When imagined within a surf-inspired, Rip Curl-branded special edition, that means more versatility for chasing the perfect wave over pavement, dirt road and sand.

Grip Control mixes anti-skid into the ESP computer to improve traction management between the driven front wheels. The feature offers five modes: a standard mode for managing traction on the road, sand mode to keep the vehicle moving through loose, shifty ground, off-road mode for rolling over slippery surfaces like mud and wet grass, snow mode and ESP off.

A set of Goodyear Vector 4Seasons 205/50 R17 89V tires help Grip Control in its mission of maintaining traction. The special edition also gets a styling package that includes white roof bars and exterior accents, Rip Curl badging, and front and rear aluminum-colored protection plates. Inside, orange highlights add energy, and Rip Curl logos on the floor mats bring the dual-branding home.

The C4 Cactus Rip Curl will go on sale in the first half of 2016 after debuting at next week's Geneva Motor Show alongside the SpaceTourer Hyphen concept. It'll be offered in "Flair" trim and come standard with rear parking sensors and camera, automatic climate control, navigation system, six-speaker MP3 audio system, tinted windows and panoramic glass roof. Buyers can choose from PureTech 110 S&S and BlueHDi 100 engine options, both with manual transmissions.
