Introduction

Albert Einstein once said, ““I never made one of my discoveries through the process of rational thinking”. I suppose that is really applicable in the case of the Cactus’ roof-mounted airbags, which were engineered in a bid to enhance spaciousness in the front dashboard.

Can it go beyond being creative though – to actually be a truly refreshing car that one wouldn’t tire of? Let’s find out.
