Citroen C6 Review

The Citroen C6 is shaped like a limousine, and offers just as much comfort and luxury as its lookalike. Its style and safety comes close as well, with the C6 aiming to reach the market after the high end brand cars. The bigger challenge lies in being a distinct force against bigger players such as the Audi and BMW. Unlike its high end range competitors, the C6 is not exactly known for its  durability over time. So how will the C6 fare against such a tough industry and a decided market?

Pros

The Citroen C6 comes with two top range V6 engines, both of which are matted with six-speed automatic transmission. The 2.7-litre V6 diesel at 205bhp has more pulling power next to the petrol, and is capable of arriving at a 62mph sprint in just 8.9 seconds. Then there’s the 3.0-litre petrol alternative at 212 bhp that is only slightly slower in its 62mph sprint at 9.4 seconds. The diesel is not just faster than the petrol alternative, but also more relaxed on the road. The V6 is also a better bet when it comes to overtaking. The more upgraded V6 would be the 3.0 HDi, which has the same 62mph time as its predecessor but with a better fuel economy at 38mpg. You can also enjoy lower road tax rates from the HDi thanks to the CO2 emissions at 195g/km.

The C6 prioritizes comfort over responsiveness, so its complex active suspension system is more than capable of minimizing vibrations felt from road impact. This effective smooth delivery is delivered via an electronically controlled hydraulic suspension system that has 16 damper settings and a two stiffness level. Steering is easy to use and light, but you might not enjoy this feature when it comes to driving through twisting roads.

Comfort is obviously the C6’ strongest feature, able to house four to five people in luxurious surroundings. Bumps and obstacles are not just easily absorbed by suspension—the double-glazed windows of the vehicle also insulate noise. Airflow is also minimized into a less aggressive state so that draughts are prevented, as well as to subdue engine noise. Rear seats are also comfortable, thanks to their electronically adjustable recline and slide. Boot space is adequate at 488 litres, but not nearly as spacious as the seating arrangement. Plus the interior itself suits the upmarket, especially against the Peugeot 407.

Cons

The C6 is capable of handling comfort, but is limited in terms of its responsiveness. The steering is light but lacks the feel it needs when you have to turn into corners. Don’t expect it to be a decent performer along twisting roads. Brakes require an extra push for a complete stop. You’ll have to limit this vehicle’s journeys along straight motorways and minimize any travel around bends.

The C6 comes in three trim levels: Exclusive, Lignage, and Standard. All these include electrically operated front seats, nine airbags, alloy wheels, automatic lights, an MP3-compatible audio system with a color screen, and automatic climate control. The Exclusive is at the top of this range, featuring a wood and chrome trim, heated front and rear seats, satellite navigation, and a six-CD autochanger, just to name a few.

Citroen C6

                Citroën C6 is a car that was produced by the French automaker, Citroën, for seven years (from 2005 up to 2012). It was first displayed in the spring of 1999 at the Geneva Motor Show and was greatly inspired by the C6 Lignage. The C6 was created as a successor to the Citroën XM, which was an executive car manufactured in 1989 until 2000.

                This executive car is characterized by a navigation system named NaviDrive, and was later renamed to Concert Pack. It has a concave rear window, a classic trunk, and has sophisticated technology. Among the selling points of the C6 include the lane departure warning system, head up display, directional headlamps, rear spoiler, and an electronically controlled springing and damping systems.

                The C6 differs from its predecessor, the Citroën XM, as it is not a hatchback. It is also the first car to receive four stars at the EuroNCAP pedestrian test rating, further proving its successful design and features. Among its rival models in other brands include the Audi A6 and the BMW 5 series. In a test done by Top Gear, Citroën C6 proved to be capable of being a comfortable ride, much so compared to the BMW 5 series which failed in the same test.
