Citroen C6

The moment we were all been waiting for; the C6 is here. The model is a combination between the Grand Tourer concept and the latest technology. This model will make you turn your head around. The C6 is full of elegance and complexity as it was inspired by the many Citroens of the past. Thanks to the advanced technology, the comfort and safety were increased by using special designed driving positions and displaying the speed and navigation onto the windscreen. The Citroen C6 offers different variants when it comes to the engine: tow V6, one diesel and one petrol engine. The new 2.7-liter HDi diesel delivers 208 BHP DIN and the 3.0-liter petrol engine delivers 215 BHP DIN. The speed is being sent to the wheels through a 6-speed automatic gearbox. The passengers both from the back, but also the one in front have a lot of space and can adjust the seats for the best sitting position.

The Citroen C6 has arrived. The latest addition to an historic line of great Citroens, with a stunning look in keeping with the Marque`s reputation for style, the C6 takes the grand tourer concept and incorporates the latest cutting-edge technology. The Citroen C6 truly is a car to stir the emotions.

An executive saloon that represents the latest stage in the creative renewal of the brand, the C6 has been inspired by the large Citroens of the past, models that have helped the Marque to establish a strong heritage in large cars.

The Citroen 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 Citroens, and continuously updated, these values are clearly expressed by the unique styling and the use of cutting-edge technology.

Citroen`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 Citroen 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.

Advanced technology for enhanced comfort and safety

The Citroen 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 Citroen range, the C6 is equipped with an electric parking brake. This new feature is offered alongside numerous intelligent driving aids pioneered by Citroen, 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 Citroen 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 Citroen 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 Citroens.

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".

Citroen 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 Citroen 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 Citroen`s own unique stamp: combining a strong emotional appeal with the application of cutting-edge technology.
