The CitroŽn C6 takes the essential values of executive saloons - elegance, sophistication and on-the-road presence - and combines them with the Marque's own key values.
Derived from classic CitroŽns, and continuously updated, these values are clearly expressed by the unique styling and the use of cutting-edge technology.
CitroŽn's new C6 combines clean, flowing lines with high levels of on-board comfort and the latest, advanced technology. The complete and innovative range of high-tech features includes a head-up display, the first application in a CitroŽn of the new 208 bhp V6 HDi diesel engine, active suspension with variable damping, the Company's lane departure warning system and directional Xenon headlamps.
CitroŽn C6 - Bold, emotive styling
The design of the C6 both enthralls and captivates, with its shape, profile and curves immediately identifying it as a member of the CitroŽn family. Clean, fluid lines and balanced proportions, with a long front overhang and short rear overhang, give the C6 the presence of a limousine and the elegance of a coupť. The new CitroŽn C6's original design combines the Marque's own styling cues with those of an executive car.
Inside the CitroŽn C6 there is a definite impression of space and comfort, highlighted by the pure lines of the dashboard, high levels of interior refinement, use of high quality materials and comfortable, sculpted seats. Looking beyond styling, the CitroŽn C6 offers a radical and innovative approach to automotive design, based on cutting-edge technology, dynamics and comfort.
CitroŽn C6 - Advanced technology for enhanced comfort and safety
The CitroŽn C6 is a perfect example of the creative and innovative approach of the brand when it comes to the use of advanced technology to deliver outstanding comfort and safety.
It features a carefully designed driving position, incorporating an easy-to-read driver's instrument panel, a large central screen and a head-up display. Making an important contribution to active safety, this display unit projects essential information - on speed and navigation for example - onto the windscreen.
A first for the CitroŽn range, the C6 is equipped with an electric parking brake. This new feature is offered alongside numerous intelligent driving aids pioneered by CitroŽn, such as a lane departure warning system, front and rear parking sensors, directional Xenon headlamps, cruise control and a speed limiter.
The top-of-the-range positioning of the CitroŽn C6 is reflected by its engine line-up: two V6 engines, one diesel and one petrol, place the emphasis on driving pleasure and refinement. A new 2.7 litre HDi diesel engine develops 208 bhp DIN (150 kW) and is equipped with a particulate filter, while the 3-litre petrol engine develops 215 bhp DIN (155 kW). Both engines are mated to 6-speed automatic gearboxes.
Traditionally, large CitroŽn cars have featured an advanced suspension, and the new C6 is no different. The new active suspension with variable damping allows it to set new standards in terms of comfort, road-holding and power. Thanks to its exceptional driving qualities and its exclusive approach to the art of life on-board, the C6 is perfectly placed to continue in the footsteps of other great CitroŽns.
CitroŽn C6 - All the comfort of a limousine
Each feature of the cabin has been designed to provide exceptional on-board comfort: multi-adjustable seats, excellent sound-proofing, thermal comfort and a specially designed driving position.
The original design of both the driving position and the ergonomic dashboard allow drivers to keep their eyes on the road at all times, whilst laminated side windows also help to improve driver concentration by filtering out external noise. Occupants benefit from generous amounts of interior space, while passengers in the back can adjust the electrically-controlled sliding rear seats to obtain the ideal, relaxed seating position.
The stowage compartments in the doors are inspired by the latest trends in home furniture design, thus reinforcing the concept of the car as a "lounge on wheels".
CitroŽn is continually working to improve passenger well-being, and the C6 introduces an air conditioning system with separate left/right and front/rear controls. It includes a soft diffusion system, designed to create a uniform blanket of air around the front passengers and to enhance thermal comfort.
Both classic and yet thoroughly original at the same time, the CitroŽn C6 sets itself apart from the models that currently set the standard in the sector while meeting all the requirements of an executive car: elegance, refinement and presence. On top of all this, the C6 adds CitroŽn's own unique stamp: combining a strong emotional appeal with the application of cutting-edge technology.
