Product Overview

Citroen C6 is an executive sedan in production from 2005 to 2012. It was available with a range of inline-4 and V6 engines that displaced 2.2 to 3.0 liters. The C6 was the last handsome car to have come out from France.
As the French love diesel, the C6 was available with three diesel engines and a single V6 petrol. Overtime, only the I4 diesel has proven to be durable, especially when paired with the 6-speed manual transmission.
What is special about the C6 was the use of Hydractive 3 hydraulic suspension.
Drivers who appreciate handling and ride comfort will be pleased to know that the Citroen C6 comes with multi-link suspensions at all four corners. With the hydraulic suspension, the C6 provides the best ride quality ever from France.

Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
Smaller engine helps lower the list price, the CO2 emissions, and raise the fuel consumption. The 2.2 will get you an extra 10.3mpg over the V6 diesel, which is almost reason enough to pick the smaller engine. On our Exclusive spec test car you get sat-nav, cornering headlights, a tyre pressure monitor, and heated front and rear leather seats.

Pros
  • Gorgeous looks
  • Lots of room for four passengers
  • Fantastic infotainment system
Cons
