The Citroen C6: Outer Poise Inner Calm

Citroen C6

Citroen C6

For more than a decade, executive car drivers in the UK have had their choice principally limited to a few German marques, alongside more understated offerings from a handful of other manufacturers. As a result, Teutonic vehicles have dominated the market. Yet, while these vehicles have become a symbol of personal status and success, for many drivers these badges no longer offer individuality.

Which is why the designers at Citroen have worked to develop, create and build the svelte, luxurious and sublime C6. An executive car for the buyer who wants to move away from more obvious displays of success, the Citroen C6 will appeal to drivers who want to communicate their free-thinking, individualistic style to the world.

A car that immediately impresses with its distinctive and timeless styling, Citroen’s imposing flagship is strikingly different. It introduces new levels of limousine-esque ride comfort and refinement for stress-free travelling, the latest advanced technology, exceptional levels of standard equipment and unprecedented safety credentials.

Big, bold yet graceful, the C6 has unmistakeable Citroen styling, drawing inspiration from the French Company’s long and illustrious history of building large, luxurious cars. The long bonnet, extended front overhang, large cabin and short rear overhang are characteristic of classic executive Citroens from the past such as the DS, SM and CX.

True to that lineage, the C6 has been created to offer a very special and unique look with real road presence, with the resulting design cleverly blending the comfort and class of a limousine with the aerodynamic profile of a coupé.

The C6 looks right from any angle: the distinctive front end, the sleek, toned exterior, the flowing waistline, frameless doors, chrome window surrounds, and eye-catching wheels - all combine to reinforce the imposing look. The back end communicates a real feeling of both strength and style, with the high, arched boot lid framed by a chrome sill, beautifully styled boomerang-shaped lights and a very unusual concave rear window.
