This is the new Citroen C6, and you can't have it
Citroen brings C6 back for the Chinese. Includes much leather and some wood
We were big fans of the old C6, which is why we’re a bit disappointed Citroen has chosen to revive the name for something we a) don’t get in this country and b) probably wouldn’t want anyway.
Revealed at this week’s Beijing motor show, the new C6 is a China-only luxo-barge. And that’s pretty much all we know. We know not what’s under the bonnet, not how much it costs or how quick (or not) it is. Sorry.
We do know that we don’t particularly like the looks. The old C6 wasn’t a thing of beauty, but it was bold, interesting and pretty unique. This thing is a bit generic, and for Citroen, who in Europe can make even an MPV look quite stylish, that simply won’t do.
Things get a bit better on the inside, with the fancy digital dials and acres of leather, but it’s not enough to make up for the bland exterior. From the back it looks a bit like a reheated C5 from eight years ago. Not cool.
