Truly unique styling

Very comfortable ride

Not a common sight

Horrific resale values

Not great to drive

Small boot

The Citroen C6 is a very comfortable and distinctive looking car. There aren’t many reviews, as the engines were all revised, and not a lot of experts have driven the new ones. Those that have driven the current version don’t really have a lot of praise for it with the main concern being the rapid depreciation it will suffer from.


There are mixed views about the interior. Some say that it is a lovely place to sit and there is plenty of space in the rear seats but others say that the interior design is a bit dated and quality is not as good as the German executives. There is ample boot space but it has a uniquely designed large opening allowing easy access.

One complaint was that the positioning of all the buttons in the front isn’t logical making it complicated to find all the functions.


Anyone can get comfortable behind the wheel since you can electrically adjust the seat and steering wheel, although one reviewer complained that the seat adjusters aren’t intuitive. The vast size of the car and its unusual shape make the car difficult to navigate around town but at least parking sensors are included as standard. The ride around town isn’t good either.

On the back roads, it handles well but the soft suspension means there will be a fair bit of body roll in the corners. There was also a complaint about the steering being far too light which is not confidence inspiring.

Where the C6 is best suited is the motorway. There is no wind noise at all unless you go too far over the speed limit although if you go over a rough patch there will be some road noise.


The C6 is only available with a 3.0 V6 HDi diesel which produces 237bhp and 332lb ft of torque. It takes the big French saloon from 0-60mph in 8.9 seconds and up to a top speed of 149mph.

It should be reasonably inexpensive to fuel since it returns 38.7mpg and road tax is reasonable since it produces 190g/km of CO2.

The C6 comes with a six-speed automatic gearbox whether you like it or not but the reviewers like it as changes up and down are smooth.

Reviewers praise the engine as it gives effortless performance and it is very torquey making the car feel lively. It’s also very quiet when wafting up the motorway and it doesn’t chug at idle.

Value for money

Cars such as the Jaguar XF and Audi A6 have a lower starting price although configuring them with a similar engine and all the equipment that the C6 has as standard will work out to be more expensive. However, rivals offer features such as keyless entry and go as an option and you can’t get them with the C6. It’s a very safe car though, with features such as nine airbags, stability control and lane departure warning coming as standard and high Euro NCAP ratings for occupants and pedestrians.

Worth noting

The biggest concern that everyone has with the C6 is the steep depreciation. One reviewer says the car will be worth a third of its value after three years and another said not to be surprised if it’s worth half the price you paid for in six months.


If you want an exclusive and spacious saloon with unique looks and is very comfortable, then the C6 looks like a good investment. Even the French government use them as limousines to chauffer dignitaries. However, the scary depreciation rates will put most off.
